Now, the next blood drive will be October 3-6th at KSU.
October 3-5 @ 10:30-16:30 in the Union, 2nd Floor or 15:00-20:00 in Putnam Hall. And, October 6th @ 08:30-14:30 in the Union, 2nd Floor.
Such a wide range in dates....wonder which date and time will I choose to give blood.
Deciding that I would give up on my D-Link DPH-540 for the time being and wanting to use my BroadVoice 'home' number as my 'home' number. I went onto eBay looking for an affordable ATA that I could transfer my BYOD service to.
Previously, I contemplated getting another locked service or waiting to cancel one of my current services and seeting about getting that adapter unlocked.
But, I ended up winning the bid for an unlocked Linksys PAP2. It arrived around the time of my high school reunion, so I wasn't able to pick it up until after my return. But, I quickly set off to get it going. Also among the spoils to pick up from the UPS Store, were the Uniden cordless phones to make my 'home' number available around my home.
Setting both up was pretty straight forward. A little tedious reprogramming numbers into the Uniden handset....but so far no issues there, though I have yet to make anything more than test calls.
The PAP2 was also pretty simple....at first I tried to guess how to fill in the blanks....but then it occurred to me that I was being silly, and I went onto Google to get the procedure. Again, only a few test calls so far...... But, I think all will be good.
Except, that I don't feel like making the trip back to Dublin, Ohio just to give blood there.
Looks the different regions don't share data....and it isn't just a mistake that my lifetime count is back to '1' again (for the second time)....
Oh well, one of the reasons that attracted me to this job...was the prospect of it being easier to donate blood on a regular basis.
I'm debating whether to get another account with Broadvoice or go with a different VoIP provider for a second VoIP line at home.
The problem is trying to track down the multitude of VoIP providers and figure out which ones offer Manhattan, KS local numbers.
That's when I came across http://www.voipreview.org, it attempts to filter the many providers it knows about down areacode initially. But drilling in further it can filter down to city.
And, then there are lots of options on the kinds of features you want from them. Like BYOD. Which I haven't decided on...though it becomes a question on whether I want my BroadVoice number to be my 'home' number or 'wifi' number.
Though one of the services claims to do Fax to Email. But, not sure I really need such a service. I haven't set up my fax machine since the move (no where to put it...connect it...) and haven't really been missing it.
But, if I go with that company...then it should probably be my 'home' number...in which case it doesn't really matter if it is BYOD or not. Except for the lower activation cost.
Though it'll be the difference of using an adapter that was locked to a different provider, which is now unlocked (but could relock itself should it go through a factory reset)...or to get the *same* adapter locked to the new provider.
Since both offer the variety of simulring/call-forwarding options....it isn't like I could miss a call by having given out the wrong number.
And, there's always the NetZero voicemail account to resolve the issue of voicemail should handle my messages...
I suppose it might be safe to say that I've pretty much decided which provider will be my other number....I just haven't decided which will be which....
The main thing is that I've already been giving out my Broadvoice number as my new 'home' number. So, maybe I guess that also has answered that question....or not.
It is time to retire this wretched pen.
I almost never use it as a stylus, and the ink pens skips terribly....and, it isn't all the pratical when I need a pencil.
Not sure what I want....pretty much I just need a write anywhere pen that fits my holster.
Might go with a Fisher....such as this one. except that they don't seem to make it anymore....
While, I accomplished stuff this Labor Day weekend....there is one thing I wanted to do, but still haven't done.
That is to get all caught up on my email....I'm currently running some 1200 'filtered' emails behind (over 2 weeks).
'filtered' meaning spam and time sensitive emails removed....though its mostly portfolio tracking and news & weather emails that are the time sensitive ones that are removed. Order tracking and Customer Support emails are harder to pick out since I don't get a consistent flood of them....
Someday I'll get back on track.....
The backup of my laptop has reached the point where it now requires 2 tapes. And, it has been on my list to get new tapes to keep both backup setups happy.
But, I seem to have this deliema.
Do I buy a new tape drive and different tapes...and probably a new SCSI controller...for more money than I have (and will likely be able to come up with during the remainder of this year, and still meet other objectives ).... Or just buy more DLT IV's.
The reason this seems hard, is the other day in an unrelated search on eBay...I saw what kind of price I might be able to score an LTO drive. 100GB per tape is still an improvement from my current 35GB per tape.
Doing this will free up the 'good' DLT IVs from the other setup to my laptop backup setup.
It however doesn't address the fact that I have 3 other systems, largely running with no backups...with significantly more data at risk.
Perhaps I need to get a network backup system of some sort.
