Thanks for the readings. It seems like there isn't anyway lightweight
way to use VoIP unfortunately. Mumble seems preferable here and another
user suggested using vnc to screenshare. I would prefer to use my home
server for screen sharing instead of having everybody configure a server
on their end but their doesn't seem to be many other options. I guess I
am more interested in a command line interface but I think VoIP is
beyond the capabilities of the command line.
