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 ...

Cleaning up the Asterisk Manager Interface module (And beginning documentation...)

Went over the AMI interface I wrote on Wednesday night. It's not as bad as I'd feared, basically seems functional. Probably want to produce a decent interface for waiting/watching events, but for now I've just added a basic "watch for events of this type" hook. I'm tempted to use pydispatcher for it, but for now ...

Dark Eyes of Fatigue

Some women seem to fall into beauty
The universe conspiring at their side
Blessed with good form and clear skin
They forgo powders that hide or smooth
Clean-faced they face the world

These goddesses put those to shame
They might spend a year at labour
Spending all their energy in strife
Yet mortal eyes will ...

Poetry a Smashing Success

Well, that was fun! No more verse this evening, think I need to decompress a bit if I'm going to be able to sleep. About 13 people (didn't actually think to count), and IIRC almost everyone shared a poem, with many sharing their own work. We did quite a few rounds of reading, then sat ...
