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.

"MGB" Endpoints

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.


Faxerthal is the silliest project imaginable in 2022, enabling modern technologically advanced humans to communicate with faxerthals, neanderfaxes and faxanderthals from the pre-email and website age. exists because technology insular faxerthals won't stop requiring people to fax things to them and I keep running into people that need to fax things to them. It was a chance to build a new from the ground up application framework and CSS. Heck, it might even make a few bucks.
