The CUCM 6.1 moan

We recently upgraded to CUCM 6.1 and 6.0 - and the main reason for this was the fact that 6.0 was full of bugs. 6.1 is no better sadly and we still have "interesting" things happening:
  • Pressing the DND button leaves a "???" on the phone screen.
  • Call Pickup Group notifications have randomly stopped working (for certain people)
  • Calling certain numbers results in a "fake display" appearing on the phone screen in the CLID area.
  • The BAT tool is still a bag of crap.
  • Sometimes faxes stop working randomly.
  • System slowness

Grrrr! They're fairly minor issues but if I can try to sort them, will post up!

Been a while!

As always a busy guy, and have been installing 6500's over night for customer's and a few other bits and bobs. I also got to go on a Palmersport day which was incredible! Being able to drive a single seater sports car similar to a Formula 3000 car was just mind blowing - though I proved I had a lot to learn if my driving skills were to be as high as Louis Hamilton!

Just a word to say that I treated myself to an IBM X41 Tablet PC! I found myself using the UMPC less and less due to the speed of the unit and I can now safely say that the X41 has replaced my T60 in the office! I can now grab my PC and start writing when a support call comes in. I also plonked Vista SP1 and it's pretty quick (suprisingly!).

My ex missus went a bit mad though and decided to snap my UMPC pen (lol!), so if anyone knows where I can buy an Asus R2H Stylus please let me know!
