I’ve been running Cisco CallManager and Unity in our house for a couple of years now. Actually it started out as CallManager Express and an answering machine and went from there. I’ve looked at Asterisk from time to time and even had it running next to CME for a little while. I used it as […]

Sunshine on my face

It’s days like this that make me think of one thing…I need to get the Cobra done so I can take it cruising.  What a rare gift for January.  Mid 60’s and sunny.  Just begs to roll down the windows and go driving. Well…I got to enjoy it briefly on my drive to the office.  […]

Deep thoughts

I think TV is rotting my brain.  I do love it so…TV that is. I have trouble deep thinking any more.  Either it’s lack of sleep or the TV.  Oddly enough the two go hand in hand. I know the answer is to not watch so much TV but that’s worse than asking me to […]

Zip it!

Oh how I wish I could really write what I want to on here.  Well, perhaps in time it will all come out.  Frustrating…

Use protection!

While I’ve never had a laptop stolen, it’s something that’s regularly on my mind.  Just saw this new program for Macs and OS X.  http://orbicule.com/undercover/ This looks sweet!  Helps you get your laptop back if someone thieves it.  I especially like the screenshot and “broken for repair” features.  When I get around to getting me […]


Got tired of Blogger.com errors so here I are.  I still really like Performancing so I’m hoping it will work great with WordPress.  Time will tell…

Performancing and Blogger…not happy

I seem to be having random problems with Performancing and Blogger. And I’m not the only one apparently. Most others are claiming it’s a problem with Blogger. One of the problems I get is an expired certificate so I know that’s Blogger’s fault. The other problem is an Atom.xml error that stops me from posting […]

Cisco Plasma TV? Cisco Media Center?

Cisco enters the consumer market? Not really sure what to make of this.  It’s possible that it’ll be branded as Linksys products but it’s odd that they wouldn’t make a point of saying that.  I have a sneaking suspicion the market’s going to spank Mr. Chambers pretty hard today.

I hate wallpaper

Yep, that’s right…hate it! And no, hate’s not too strong a word. In fact, it’s not strong enough. Wallpaper is the one thing that makes me want to put my fist through the wall I just wallpapered. Literally. No exaggeration. I don’t know how anyone could do wallpapering on a regular basis. It brings rise […]

Thanks for tormenting me Apple

It’s been a couple of days now since Apple announced the new toys at Macworld. For the first day or two I was in the RDF but that’s worn off now. If they had come out with iBook around $1200 or less I probably would have ordered it that day. Since I can’t drop $2000-2500 […]
