Next years love...

…has to be one of these:

Of course i’m just like any other and love my gadgets. However i’m trying my best to figure out a way of getting exactly the phone I want yet trying to find the tariff that suits me. I’m pretty happy with Orange but with T-Mobile offering phones like this it’s hard to ignore them (Plus the £7.50 a month unlimited Internet deal - woohoo I say).

I guess it’s unfortunately down to having two phones though, one for going out on the town (like a Motorola Razr that is just hidden completely) and one of these for work, business trips, car travel (It has GPS!), and a shed load of other things.

I can smell the burning cash already…

The tale of the mysterious DN numbers...

Today i’m having to deal with a bizzarre problem for a customer. They want Outlook Dialling using TAPI. Dead easy!
Or not.

This person who wants Outlook Dialling is finding that 37 CtiParkDevices are appearing in their list of Cisco Lines to Dial from, with DN numbers that don’t exist in CallManager (and never have done!). The icing on the cake is that the SEP line that they’re looking for to do the dialling is not in the list.
If I run Phone.exe (from the SEP line appears in the list and therefore demonstrates that: 1) TAPI is installed correctly, 2) All passwords and whatnot are configured correctly, and 3) The customer is not going mad.

WTF. If I fix it i’ll stick it up here.
