Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

I will go through long stretches without playing with new technology until I either get unbusy or get talked into figuring out how to do something remotely interesting with it. Like linking FaceTime up to a help desk database. It turns out that Apple made it a very straight forward process. Simply use a facetime handler as the prefix to a URL with the phone number of the other person (iPhone 4) or their FaceTime email address (usually with the desktop app). For example, if my email were then you could use the following from terminal:
open facetime://
Or if my phone number were 310-555-1212 (it is you know;):
open facetime://3105551212
Happy FaceTiming
