So I'm living in a new area, far outside my old area code. I still have my old mobile phone plan, and won't be changing for a while. But I needed a local phone number without really needing a phone line.
So I saw an ad for AIM Phoneline, which gives me a free local phone number for voicemail, which I can access over the phone or through my browser. And, if I install the true blue AIM software client, I can actually answer calls from my PC.
I guess this has been available for a while, but I had no reason to look into it until now. It's pretty damn cool, and since I'm applying for jobs, it gives people a local number to call.
