This package is free as in GPL. (the suite is not an asterisk configuration tool) This package is geared towards Asterisk installations with SIP,IAX or Zap phones and Zaptel, IAX or SIP trunks. For this revision, we have finished the VICIDIAL web-client, added compatibility with the Asterisk 1.2 release tree, streamlined several server-side apps and added cpu percentages to our stats logging scripts."

Asterisk Flash Operator Panel: "is a switchboard type application for the Asterisk PBX. It runs on a web browser with the flash plugin. It is able to display information about your PBX activity in real time. The layout is configurable (button sizes and colors, icons, etc). You can have more than 100 buttons active per screen. On the Live Demo there are 28 buttons defined. It also supports contexts: you can have one server running and many different client displays (for hosted PBX, different departments, etc). It can integrate with CRM software, by poping up a web page (and passing the CLID) when a specified button is ringing." - NICE

Forget MSMQ. SQL Service Broker Handles Asynchronous Messaging Better: "SQL Service Broker is a powerful messaging system built directly into SQL Server 2005. Not only is installation easy, but SQL Service Broker stores messages and transactional data directly in the database as well. Also, SQL Service Broker doesn't require distributed transactions to build message-based systems. All these features make it a very compelling alternative to MSMQ. Its only real limitation is that it currently communicates only between SQL Server instances."

Spring Live ~ Weblog: "The 10th update to Spring Live has now been released! This release includes Chapter 6.5, which covers JasperReports with Spring MVC. Rather than doing a simple integration, Cos and I went the extra mile and demonstrate how to use iReport to create and preview the report. In addition, this release has many updates to the code samples - so indenting should be fixed, as well as we moved to black and white for all the code. It's unfortunate, but it's also the easiest to maintain. I'll have the release notes and downloads done in the next hour or two." - COOL!

broadband » Forums » Voice over IP » [General] Canadian Providers for BYOD Voip: "A friend opened an account with DolphinTel earlier this year. Audio quality on calls between us is good; rates are low and customer support is helpful... Tried today. Works with Sipura or X-ten. 416 area code only, but for $2 (incoming only), which is the cheapest you can find. I heard that also allows BYOD. Quite cheap... How was the vBuzzer voice quality with the Sipura?... The only info I've got from thier software is the proxy name, which is, username and password are known. You just need to install their sofware once to get the phone number. Then you know how to configure sipura or X-ten. The quality was good, they use G711 codec [2005-03-11, North York, ON]...

VoIP | B.Mann Consulting: "Canadian VOIP comparison & Vonage VoIP Forum Forums - Post 35537 - Primus VS Vonage: "Primus does not charge an activation fee, nor a shipping fee. There is no termination fee aswell (ie, no contract). And you have the option of buying their (Primus) $99 adaptor to get a discount of $4/month of service... I am currently with both Vonage and Primus. Primus is cheaper, but I have had on-going disconnect problems as well as voice quality problems. My Vonage is going through the same Internet connection and never once was disconnected or had warbling sounds when I am speaking. To me, Vonage is worth the extra money... I've chosen Yak Voip because they sorta have the advantages of both Primus and Vonage. Yak only charges $18.99 (Vonage -$19.99) for 600 minutes (Vonage - 500 minutes). And its only $3.99 for virtual number (Vonage - $7.99). I'm also able to get primary and virtual numbers for the US aswell (Vonage - Primary has to be canadian). The only thing that isn't great is that after the 30 day trial period, yer locked into a year contract ($70 termination fee). I just finished my 30 days, and the service has been great, I'm staying. No Activation fee, and No Shipping fee. Oh and after the year contract, the phone adaptor is yours to keep." & Unlimitel plus Question about Yak VoIP in Canada | B.Mann Consulting: "The features page has a few more details. It looks like the Yak "VoIP Caller" product is mainly for making calls, with limited features -- at $9.99USD, this is probably the Canadian product. The "VoIP Communicator" is the full-featured product, and you can apparently get numbers in the US, Canada, or the UK, and even get a second number (at additional charge). At $14.99USD a month, that's the one I would pick. Even has voicemail-via-email, although they call it unified messaging." & Digital Home Canada - Digital Home's VoIP Premium Plan Round-Up & Digital Forums - Primus or Vonage?? - TIPS!

But pC has texting capability that is missing from Gizmo. Call-me link feature of pC is not widely discussed, but I hope Gizmo adds in a future release. pC does not support a wideband codec. But it can be unlocked and used with any other SIP based service. As far as I can determine Gizmo is locked to use only SIPPhone. This is from the company that sued Vonage for locking their ATAs. Have they gone native? In the same vein, I wish they supported Speex, an open source and loyalty free codec."

Mr Blog Entry - 08/05/2004: Another open-standards Skype competitor: "we have PhoneGaim, another Skype-like application."
Mr Blog Entry - 07/01/2005: puts out another IM/voice Skype alternative: " really stresses the open standard and interoperability aspects of Gizmo and for my part, I couldn't agree more. They do say 'Gizmo matches Skype's features plus adds some neat ones' and I'm not sure I'd go that far yet. The app does look really good on Mac OS X and is perhaps the best looking Voice/IM app I've seen, especially one that supports SIP. The first thing I noticed missing in Gizmo was a 'Find People' option to find people on the network. Without that, the 'nobody to talk to problem' (the fax problem) smacks one in the face right away. I don't think Gizmo matches Skype's built-in multi-chat and conferencing capabilities yet either. I'm sure Skype aficionados will find many things that Gizmo won't do yet."

Where is skype's IVR, recording of conversations, interface to any hardware or PABX out there and the rest... Users and companies worldwide have chosen allready they want good calls and most large communities are still very hard to convince to use software phones, this is why the hardware support build into Asterisk beats Skype every time. not only does Asterisk bridge SIP, IAX and POTS but is written so any middleware and any software solution you own today can be added without any hassle whatsoever, the same is true for the hardweare you use today. Smart IT managers are now migrating to Asterisk."
VenChar: Skype API: "Call-center and IVR solutions - Although Skype has so far been designed primarily with individual communication needs in mind, it can be used to provide business-class calling services through the Skype API. Businesses can provide Interactive Voice Response (IVR) solutions where the software answers the inbound Skype call and provides the user with automated choices and selections in combination with a back-end system. This could be used for ticket booking, payment, pizza ordering and many other services. The IVR system can be either fully automatic or a combination of operator/automatic usage. For service monitoring purposes, the calls to operators can be recorded and later screened using regular audio manipulating tools on a standard PC. The information can be automatically stored and emailed."

Skype Journal: Does Skype eat its children?: "Using the Skype API the Development Community created Web Presence Applications, integrations to e-mail systems like Outlook, and browsers like Internet Explorer, along with voice messaging/answering systems, like Pamela.

oe magazine - photofakery: "Although image analysis tools can help detect many fake images, currently there is no way to stop somebody from spending the time and resources to make a fake image that is not detectible. All one can do is hope that an inconsistency can be found, thus indicating that the image is fake. Methods currently being developed, such as image stenography and control coding in printers, can aid in the prevention and detection of altered images that are passed off as real images. Two great references for checking the authenticity of images being distributed on the Internet are The Museum of Hoaxes and Urban Legends Reference Pages. For further reading on fake images, a good reference is Photo Fakery, by Dino Brugioni."

This is how Emacs and other programs do it. Second option, and the one I'm going to use it here, is calling the native functions implemented in the Aspell library. Luckily a ruby binding to Aspell called raspell is already available."
