My buddies are funny. They actually do relate to music, art, and better than the generations before them. Then, they bring up good points and arguments about telephony that even I find to be true or truer than most of what today's generation states what they believe to be as factual. There's a difference.

There's a difference.The dinosaurs may be extinct but at least they have a solid history. Today's youth or geeks that are infatuated with doing everything on a computer want to rule the world. Dinosaurs by their very nature dominated the world. Today's nerd doesn't know what it means to hear true stereophonic sound since they are glued to their MP3 players and iPods that never will replicate audio from the concert, song or even dance. Stereo is seemingly by its nature, obsolete when compared to the lesser audio quality we get today from SIP, VoIP running scared across the web, Skype, and whatever else the computer gods can drum up. They do miss a beat and more than one.
The reason is simple- they haven't tasted of life, they haven't experienced sound in its truest sense of the word 'fidelity.' Heck, they don't even know Fats Domino or Chubby Checker let alone Mitch Miller and Al Hirt. But those dinosaurs, along with my buddies and me too- yes, we do know them and the meaning of quality and it is defined in some book that defines a bunch of acronyms and hoped for behaviors called best practices.
So when we talk about quality it is something still meaningful today. For those punkers thinking they have gnosis of the words 'quality and sound,' they haven't lived. It's been said before- life is wasted on youth. As long as quality lives, I'll always have a job.
Again, that's another difference between dinosaurs and rulers of the world- the dinosaurs just do and they do it better and then we die. The rulers keep trying over and over until they get it right, and by the time they do- they die too. So excuse the idiom: size matters- big iron telephony still dominates the quality circles and little iron telephony is still trying to rule and manage their fiefdoms while ignoring quality.
Now don't get me wrong- we still have things in common, neither of us wants jitter and at least one us doesn't want bugs, and it's discerning as to why one of the two does call into question that thing called profit.
VoIP still hasn't delivered "stereo quality sound" that has been boasted of, bragged about and marketed to the masses. Until then, keep trying. I encourage you to keep going, you may eventually get it right. Then, you can work on consistency. After that, get back to me- I'll probably be enjoying retirement by then.
Now for the code or challenge that I think even the untrained eye of the geeks will have problems solving.
444 4 4
444 4 4
44 444 4
IF you can decipher the code then call me on 443-426-2120 and leave a message and be sure to include your name and address- but the final test is figuring out how to successfully leave me a message. Oh, and keep dialing if you can't get through- the world-wide-web doesn't always deliver the first time around. GOOD LUCK. Prizes will be awarded at VoiceCon in Orlando, provided of course you come to the Troubleshooting session and give me solutions to all the questions I've raised.
Okay- I'll leave a hint: 6+6 = 12 the first set, first entrant, the second set: 9-9 = 0 thus you have it- the second entrant, and the third set is 6+4 = 10, again use the first entrant only. This will get you in the door but you still need to solve the code to get the prize.
Official rules of this contest: don't be angry and Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain, you may not like the prizes.
