Over protective dog while I'm away at ITEXPO?

January 25, 2008

While I'm away at ITEXPO covering all the latest VoIP news and meeting with industry insiders, my wife snapped some interesting photos of our yellow Labrador/Shepherd-mix dog Jessie with her paw on our 21 month old daughter, Megan. The look on Jessie's face says it all, but I'll translate for you just in case...


Jessie: Just stay down kid. It's a dangerous world out there and Dad's not home. Dad's away at ITEXPO learning about dangerous VoIP security exploits, and something about business SIP trunks.


Joined The Biggest Loser

January 17, 2008

Well, I joined The Biggest Loser. No, not that Biggest Loser. It's being run by Body Health & Fitness Club, my local gym. After fellow blogger Om Malik's heart scare, and my weight ballooning from 170lbs to 198lbs over the last 3 years, it was time to do something about it.

Every Day Heroes

November 5, 2007

There are many kinds of heroes in this world. There are the police and firefighters that save lives every day at their own personal peril. Of course, there are the brave men and women service serving in the U.S. military.

Disney World Vacation Photos

October 12, 2007

Thought I'd share a few photos from my Disney World vacation that I took with the rest of the Keating clan. Actually, my mother-in-law came as well, so part of the Monegan clan came as well. I must be on my Braveheart kick again using "clan" instead of "family". It is the greatest movie of all time after all.

Cape Cod vacation

July 9, 2007

Well, I'm back from Cape Cod where I spent the Fourth of July holiday. I did periodically check email via EVDO, but only at our house rental and not the beach. I thought about blogging on the beach and considered snapping a few photos of the ocean and beach to post to the blog, but I decided it was better to just take a mental break from blogging. Hence, you may have noticed an entire week went by without a single blog entry - a record that I believe goes back to when I started blogging in 2004!

In any event, I'm back now.

Grinch, CTI, VoIP, Seinfeld, Newman, Darth Vader, and all that stuff

December 8, 2006

Back in 1998, TMC had a publication called CTI Magazine which covered the convergence of the Computer and Telephony - or Computer Telephony Integration. At the time, Richard "Zippy" Grigonis worked for Harry Newton's publication CT Magazine, TMC's arch-rival publication. Zippy was like my Newman (Seinfeld's arch-rival). Similar to what I do for TMC Labs, he wrote some reviews and did a good job writing technical articles on CT/CTI.

At one point Zippy called me and said that CT Magazine was interested in hiring me away from TMC.

I surrender my email address to spammers

November 17, 2006

I surrender! I surrender! Just as Captain Kirk begrudgingly surrendered the Enterprise, as of today I have surrendered my corporate email account to the spammers. Spammers can have my email address, which has become completely overwhelmed with spam.
