Definity AUDIX Failure, part never!

The AUDIX never failed. Apparently it was me who didn’t realize he didn’t have a “null” modem cable. Once I figured that out, and some questioning around the person who gave me the system, I got it to function. Wasn’t that complicated.

The confirmation that things were working was the infamous prompt.

Welcome to AUDIX. For help at any time, press star-H. Please enter in extension and pound sign.

No I don’t want to go back to a VOIP system that I was doing to replace the broken Cisco CME system. The Avaya was supposed to be “temporary”. Well let’s just keep that as long as I can! 😀

The AUDIX board is now working!!!

If you can recall, I had a series of issues when I received this around late February. It turns out it needs a “null modem” cable because it’s basically a modem connection to in basic terms make the keyboard and monitor acting as a terminal session to work.

My Mobile History

Since the world is going so mobile, I should write a little blurb about cell phones relates to me. This took nearly seven months to finally “publish” it…

I’d bet it’s the size of an iPhone 6 because it was scaled to children. Another one posted below was a flip phone. I felt like the important person in recess in elementary school.

Aastra/Nortel 390 Unboxing

It’s been a while since I have been updating the site. In fact, I haven’t logged in for a while ether. While I have some time catching up on things, I thought I’d share the unboxing (albeit sound only) of an Aastra 390 screenset, received by Joe the UCX Guy earlier last month. Joe: I’ve tried to reach you for acknowledgment and my email has  been acting very moody. Future correspondences can be sent via steven@vanitydomain (see banner). I have not forgotten you.

I’ll have stills and hopefully a video portion sooner than later.

Anyways back to some emails and other things I have to follow up. Been a busy summer for me, hence the silence here.
