Featured Project: ring-u
Starting in January 2017, GeekLabs and friends have been building ring-u, an auto-configuring small business phone system. Soft-launch was September 15th, 2017. That's 9 months from "lets do this thing" to hardware and software designed, built and in-stock. It's currently using a couple of "Tier 1" back end telecom providers for actual service delivery. The plan: build a sustainable profitable business.
Jan 2022 update: Hello Hub Version 2 released. And rocks! Customers love the OLED display showing network info and system status.
- #1 rated business phone system on Amazon.
- Unique automated phone configuration technology
- All programming done in-house in Chattanooga TN, not outsourced.

A simple and powerful mailing list manager. Runs as a user and only requires 1 database table. Full MIME, plain text, PGP Signed and PGP Encrypted receipt and delivery options.

The clients call them MGB's - Mike's Geek Boxes. Leveraging OpenVPN, Embedded Arm Computers, Debian for Arm, a bespoke VPN, and an advanced version of "Kitty" for CAT/MRI Scanners. These enable remote monitoring, diagnostic and use of medical imaging devices. Need some bizarre remote access and control capabilities? We learned a lot that can be leveraged for other applications.
