[kwlug-disc] Favourite free sip registrars?

The registrar part of a registrar should be in essence just a directory 
service. sip://guest42@workingcentre.org could merely be a redirection 
to sip://guest42@sip2sip.org.

Most free sip registrars offer voicemail. I expect many simply 
downloading it to the associated e-mail address.

If the working centre voicemail could be accessed via voip (voip 
address), then a softphone could retrieve it. (Or is it delivered as 
.wav files to an e-mail address?)

e.g. Such as via the computers we offer every Friday night at OOTC.

Part of where I'm coming from on some of this stuff - we have but one 
physical phone Friday nights, no long distance. But 6+ laptops sitting 
there waiting for guest use. (They do e-mail, facebook, other stuff. 
Opportunity for learning there, too, but so far little interest.)

With Working Centre during day, and us at night, I've wondered how to 
leverage Working Centre computer facilities / opportunities / learning 
from us to there during the evening when the Working Centre is closed.
