I simply inform others to beware that asterisk has a retarded lack of defaults that WILL fuck your asterisk server if someone is permitted to record a 2GB WAV file in any way shape or form. And they won't submit the bugfix because I won't be their goddamn test lab.
Not my loss. I know the workaround. And personally I could care less if anyone else uses the software. It gives *me* a competitive advantage.
The sad thing is, there are plenty of other things in asterisk like this where they expect the reporter to carry the entire burden. Read the notes on this. They wanted me to do all sorts of crazy shit when the issue and fix were fucking obvious. fuck them.
