Working around Firefox 1.5's SVG target problems (Sure it's simple, but it takes hours to try all the other hacks...)

Cinemon, as some of you may know, uses SVG graphics as one of its core navigational mechanisms. Until today we've basically had to have users use either the Adobe SVG viewer or be annoyed by the Mozilla browsers loading the whole site into the iframe where the navigation graphic is displayed. This is because Mozilla ...

Bit of maintenance among the learning tasks... (Or, what I did for the last few days...)

I'm continuing to work on making StarPy a decent platform for writing Asterisk applications. In between I'm working on Cinemon administration (and a bit of code) and little bits of the VoIP project that need handling.

Wound up installing FreeBSD, the HotSpot software and Cinemon on a box for one of our partners. Ran into ...

Funky GSM playback with Asterisk 1.2.1 (Load issues, maybe...)

I upgraded my Asterisk development machine to 1.2.1 a few days ago (from 1.0.something). Since then I've had really poor playback of the GSM sound files (slowed down dramatically, often dropping out) even to SIP phones connected across a local LAN. Connection and link to remote machines produces fine quality, so I'm assuming it's a ...

She'd Retract It

So she'll no longer tell us
In her so-circumspect new verse
Of men hard within
Rubbing up against her skin
She'd retract the words
Pretend we'd never heard
Yet what harm if she's bedded
Those mortal yet god-headed
Who are we to judge it fall
When Zeus or 'pollo comes to call
Upon a gentle ...

Admonition to the Hyades

Be gentle, gentle raining daughters
There's no man born worth
Tears so hot or sharp with pain
Their hearts are hard things
Rocks set against the seas
Not worthy of such devotion
Not capable of proper love
Forget then your wailing
Stop the rain from falling
To drench the o'er watered earth
Let your storms ...

StarPy Twisted Protocols for Asterisk AMI and Asterisk FastAGI (Release so early it's not even finished yet)

Rather than wait until it's all finished, why not dump the code on the unsuspecting world and let all two or three people who want to use Python with Asterisk play with it. This is still a very early engineering prototype (many of the functions have never been run, let along properly tested), so don't ...

Almost done the FastAGI protocol for Python (Almost as messy as the manager protocol)

I've built a FastAGI protocol for Twisted, just writing code now to test the various methods. Have already discovered that "HANGUP" doesn't seem to work from a FastAGI application (the MTA just stays on the line even after a hangup).

I've got the whole FastAGI API wrapped as a first-crack hack (at least, as much ...
