    Anyone interested in setting up a Porcupine 411 recording service for Utah?

    Basically it gives us a local phone number to call and record a message in case of imminent arrest, location of a speed trap, desire to meet for lunch, etc.

    We would get a blog, local phone number, mailing list service, and podcast for $15/month.

    I brought this up over on UCC, but thought I should do so here as well.

    Likely we would setup a paypal account to accept donations and when the coffer is full, we would sign up.

    If you would be willing to sponsor a month, let me know by posting in this thread. Thanks!

    Except for the cost I would be betting we could do it for free.

    I have envied the guys in New Hampshire for a while with this, I think it is a great idea.

    I have been looking for a way to record without the audio file being on my person.

    You know, just in case "they" decide to "accidentally erase" what is on my voice recorder. :P
    I say, lets do it! :celebrate I would be willing to sponsor the next month.

    The cost arises from web hosting and the phone line cost. If you know of a way to do that for free, I'd be interested.

    Yeah, we'd be using his services. It's the monthly fee we'd have to cover.

    I've been wondering for a while now if I could set up a Porc-411 like service with Google Voice. Set it to not forward to any phones, all calls go to voicemail, the voicemail address sends to a mailing list, a blog which accepts e-mailed posts is subscribed to the mailing list, and the podcast feed is derived from the RSS feed of the blog.

    It could all be free in theory. Implementing all the e-mail linkage and getting a GV number ending in 411 would be tricky though.

    I was offering this earlier, but then found out that Google Voice limits messages to 1 minute (used to be 3 I guess). So, due to the limited length, it became unfeasible.

    Ah. Well I have a free j2 fax/voicemail account from around 10 years ago. It sends GSM audio attachments of the voicemails. I forget what the message length limit is, but they don't offer free accounts anymore it seems. Maybe there's another company that has free voicemail numbers...

    I looked at the link and like it. What does it take to set it up? Is someone willing to take the lead in this? What are the costs? Does it help you get an attorney in the imminent arrest part of the system? Thanks for the post.
