re: VOIP for business? - DoctorTechnical

Best way to describe the effect: it's as if the first letter of many of the words have been cut off. If you can live with your customers hearing "'est way to 'escribe 'he '...

To be fair, the cord is soldered onto the switch terminals. OP might re-consider his reluctance to tape the wire together... th...

Wished that Herington and Becker could have wailed a bit more, but from all the roadies on stage beating on equipment during the first song I'm guessing there may have been some technical problem. Crowd did look like an AARP convention. But still... damn was that a fine show. And they played A...

re: Mule show at Sloss last night - DoctorTechnical
While it's on one of the Red Mountain towers, it's not the most high-powered signal, so if you get up toward Trussville or down past Pelham it can get noisy. Understand also that BMR is basically a grown-up college station, so they can get "talky" some times. But they do love music and all things BH...

Buy an extra box of the remote buttons. Then, after the cheap / Chinese-made button fails after six months of being out in the elements, you can just put in another button. Better than trying to find a matching button post-failure. Ask me how I know. On second thought, please don't. :banghead:...
