Eliminate Spyware

May 8, 2005

This may be the best response to one of my posts. The following was a response to my Spitzer Spyware Suit I am not a lawyer but these ideas to eliminate spyware seem like they have merit and if there are any lawyers out there in cyberspace reading this blog, please opine on if these ideas make sense. Until then, I hope this excellent response helps stamp out spyware forever.

I don't understand why everyone does not take advantage of their local small claims court to sue spyware companies. The process is pretty simple.

More VoIP URLs

May 8, 2005

More recent VoIP URLs. The best of the bunch will have to be registered to Champion in Marietta South Carolina, US. is an interesting one as well and although the site the site that feeds me with these URLS, tells me it is taken, it does seem available.

Speech-World Attracts Top Companies

Gore Gets Internet Award

May 5, 2005

Love him or hate him, he helped popularize the Internet with his use of the term “Information Superhighway” on national TV. It was around the time he made this speech that the Internet took off. Gore spoke at a past TMC event and made light of the whole “Inventing the Internet” situation. This was right after he lost the presidency to Bush. The audience was surprised at how loose and relaxed he was in person as opposed to TV.

Wynn Las Vegas

May 4, 2005

I went to an Avaya reception tonight and after a few minutes of listening to an eloquent VP of Avaya, Steve Wynn took the stage to speak to the crowd about how his hotel Wynn Las Vegas will excel in service and in fact have better customer service than any other hotel on the planet. Wynn has quite a stage presence (yet there was no stage) and I came away from the experience humbled. I am very grateful to have listened to him speak for 10 minutes and I have a much deeper appreciation for what Wynn is trying to accomplish with his new hotel.

Amazingly, the service level he speaks of seemed evident in the wait staff and other hotel workers I came in contact with.

One wonders how these new hotels get customers. It seems that the more hotels they build in Vegas, the more people come.

The VoIP Security Session at Interop

May 3, 2005

My security session went very well today at Interop. I think the audience got a lot out of it as there were lots of good questions. MediaLive is selling tapes to the session if you are interested. The vital stats are as follows: 60 people were in the room.

Spirent Triple-Play

May 3, 2005

With all the talk of providing triple-play services, it makes sense that Spirent would make a “play” (pun intended) for this space. Let’s face it, voice, video and data over single pipe is possible but when you consider that just carrying voice over IP on a small scale can be a challenge, what happens when ten thousand or millions of subscribers need simultaneous triple-play services. A testing solution makes a great deal of sense to deploy as you roll-out your services to the masses.


System Tests Triple-Play Application Performance Along With QoS, SIP, IPsec Security and IPv4/6 Performance on a Per-Port Basis at Real-World Scale

LAS VEGAS - May 3, 2005 - Spirent Communications™ (NYSE: SPM; LSE: SPT), today announced the release of Avalanche 7.0, a test suite designed to validate the readiness of the IP infrastructure equipment for triple play services.

Avalanche 7.0 features real-world user and triple play traffic emulation along with automation flexibility to test multiple dimensions of the network. This includes the testing the capacity and functionality of both the network and network devices.

It should come as no surprise that a company with a name Psytechnics is a strong engineering company. This is certainly not a marketing company with hollow technology under the covers, these guys really know their stuff and in this case the stuff is VoIP quality. A spin-off of BT, the research division went off on its own to strike it rich.

The company makes its living checking to see how jitter and latency are perceived by our ears. You know those MOS (mean opinion scores) ratings that tell us how good voice sounds?

I am kind of fed up with this runaway bride that disappeared, reappeared, was abducted, was not abducted, etc. I don't know her name and it is not worth finding her name to put it in this entry.

This entry serves as a vent. I believe I sometimes act as the guardian of such vent on occasions when the world gets caught up in ridiculous hysteria about stupidity. Utter stupidity.
