Anybody catch the VoIP reference on 24 last night? VoIP was mentioned by the drunk guy at the hotel bar who was hitting on Chloe while she was working on her laptop. He tried a few lines on Chloe before bragging about his VoIP prowess to try and impress Chloe. Chloe eventually zapped him with a stun gun. Guy was lucky Jack Bauer wasn't in the hotel bar or he'd be more than stunned. Ever read the Chuck Norris Facts website? i.e. "Guns don't kill people. Chuck Norris kills People." Funny stuff. Somebody should come up with a similar list for Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland). Cisco still appears to be the exclusive phone provider at CTU. Surprised they never talk about somebody sniffing the IP packets. Anyway...
I recorded the show on my Windows MCE 2005 PC, so I'll go see if I can cut the snippet and update this post. Stay tuned...
Update - got the video clip.
Synopsis of dialogue:
Drunk dude: Whatdya got? A little voice over IP going on there?
Chloe: Please leave me alone.
Drunk dude: No seriously, I can help. I know a way for you to get some free bandwidth."
Drunk dude: Absolutely...
Chloe: Sit down.
Drunk dude: Cool!
Play the video for the rest... (only embeds in IE. You won't see this in Firefox. Gotta figure out how to fix that. You can download the video instead here if you want)
