One-click dialing back in action

One-click dialing back in action

Aha! Ted and Dom showed me how to add a tel: URI scheme handler to firefox. It turns out that firefox consults the gnome configuration database, so this works:

$ gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/tel/command "echo %s"

In place of echo, I use a little script that Ted wrote that uses curl to drive Vonage Third Party Call Control. This works great with the hack to build an hCard version of my sidekick contacts!
