One more reason to be extremely careful about what you do or say on the Internet, especially if you think you’re hidden behind “anonymous”: retroactive changes to privacy policies. MS surely isn’t winning points this week, what with this policy change and announcing the per-hour Office subscription.
I’ve added notes to the wiki for configuring the Busy Lamp Field (BLF) on the GXP-2000 so that it can “watch” phones via Asterisk.
There was definitely a VoIP theme this year for presents. I rec’d:
- 2 two-line phones
- 2 four-line phones
- a Phillips DECT 6.0 cordless with two handsets
- and a Linksys SPA-3102
I can now return the borrowed VoIP phone as I now have enough to experiment with whatever configuration (except for video calls).
The original script for the weather wake-up calls was based on Swift. I’ve added the lines for Festival (see the wiki). Please note that the Swift-based output sounds much, much better than the Festival-based output. In either case, tweaking the speech parameters will improve the output.
The good news is that I’ve added my notes for generating wake-up calls with weather forecasts to the wiki. The bad news is that I managed to “lose” the web interface for it. I’ll remedy this shortly.
Lesson learned: scheduled backups are fine when little happens in between. If you code heavily, backups should occur more often!
