That's the type of instructions I need! Visual!
I need twenty seven eight-by-ten color glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one is.

I have some additional wiring to do though. One strange thing is that I still have a verizon dial tone on the phones that are not on the ooma yet. Is that for emergencies?
Dont forget to de-mark from the outside jack if you are going to use internal wiring.

Ahhh. Someone else remembers Arlo and his wonderful rendition of Alice's restaurant. So just what were you in for again?

So if we can remember it, were we REALLY there? :P

I didn't write that quote! I didn't have to do anything with my verizon box (if I even have one).

It's short for demarcation, the point at which the telephone company wires connect to your house wires.
Typically a box on the outside of the house with a phone plug or two that can be used to disconnect the phone company.
