Death and SIP Taxes

The wages of sin are death, but by the time taxes are taken out, it’s just sort of a tired feeling. — Paula Poundstone There are very few things in life that I truly hate.  Yes, there is much that I very much dislike, but hate is such a strong word that I like to […]

How Vulnerable is Your SIP

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” ― Henry David Thoreau I don’t like to think of myself as old, but there are times when I feel absolutely ancient.  This is especially true when it comes […]

Taking the Boredom Out of SIP Trunks

I think it’s an actor’s responsibility to change every time. Not only for himself and the people he’s working with, but for the audience. If you just go out and deliver the same dish every time… it’s meat loaf again… you’d get bored. I’d get bored. — Johnny Depp This will not come as a […]

Web Services for Beginners

“Rest and be thankful.” ― William Wordsworth On a number of occasions, my unified communications articles have used terms such as web services, SOAP, REST, and RESTful.  Without providing much explanation, I’ve stated that these are methodologies and tools that allow a client application to access a remote service. For example, Avaya SIP telephones use […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Always On

Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we’re too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone.

The Art of Telephone Spotting

Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others. –Jonathan Swift I have an odd quirk.  Actually, it’s more of a habit than a true quirk.  When I go into a place of business, one of the first things I do is look to see what kind of phone system they have.  While […]

SIPVicious: Anarchy in the UC

Undermine their pompous authority, reject their moral standards, make anarchy and disorder your trademarks. Cause as much chaos and disruption as possible, but don’t let them take you alive! — Sid Vicious My latest article for No Jitter addresses a topic I’ve spoken about before here on SIP Adventures — security and protection from the […]

The Five Whys of Problem Solving

“The formulation of the problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill.” ― Albert Einstein Sometimes I’m a little late to the game.  As much as I love movies, I often don’t see the most popular releases until years after they’ve hit the theaters.  […]
