I played with asterisk for a few minutes when I realized how not trivial it is to set up and then thought about what I needed it for and realized it wasn't worth it.
I'll keep the ekiga thing around (hey it's free and easy) but what I really want is cheap phone and my 948 number so I'm going to see if the magic jack thing pans out.
Funny you should mention. I noticed just last night on dr. horrible's sing-along blog that when there were large areas of flat surfaces that were dimly lit, there was a bit of pixelization (large blocks actually). Still like it thoug as I am impatient and it is nice to have lots of options without having to mess around with a DVR.
I imagine you can pick up a used one pretty cheap nowadays.
or are you saying mount the device as a file and do it that way...
You go http://translate.google.com/translate_tts?q=text (where 'text' is the phrase you want it to say) and you get back an MP3. It works with any string up to 100 characters.
down-translating everything to ASCII and wrapping several layers of escaping around it seems to be a clear advance then!
there rather should be something like a corba interface to it instead, so you can query it using the commandline but can also work fast with it.
without all that wrap in/ out back and forth!
That, and sleeping on a cot in the AI Lab...
The good news: I have a three year warranty on it, which is actually still in effect for another couple of weeks!
The bad news: I bought the laptop at CompUSA.
A little Googling reveals that the warranty is still going to be honored, but I'm expecting this is going to be one hell of a bumpy ride getting my laptop fixed.
android is very good at the write once run anywhere thing, though. its apps really do run on a wide array of very different handsets.
the technology exists to do this, I just haven't seen anyone actually do it yet.
All it takes is a bootable CD with a hex editor loaded, and a knowledge of the device you're trying to reconstruct.
This is of course assuming that the device is not physically malfunctioning.

no problems apart from that its an interpreted language where
everybody wants to talk away the fact that this will be slower than
just because of you store a pre-parsed copy of the interpreted code,
thats no compiler. No body would call the zend-cache a JIT
zero clue, too.
you also missed the fact that nobody cares. programmers are more expensive than hardware.
depends on the number of users you're trying to address. at some scale it does matter if you need the double number of computing power.
In that case/scale i'm talking about, it probably is, since the nginx thing will work without db interaction.
It's not a /mode/, it's a /lifestyle/.
