what a week

ISDN lines: they said it wouldn't work, but guess what--you really can make long haul lines (<= 1 km) from the NT-1 to your subscriber equipment if there's only one on each line--it's called "extended bus." I laugh at danger.

Data--dedicated T-1 didn't happen. We're going to "cheat" the demo by running VNC from the booth to the demo machine over the VPN. Woo-hoo. (VNC is like an open source pcAnywhere that works on Macs, PCs, and most UNIX flavors).

Bottom line--they said we couldn't do it, but we did it anyway. Well hell, even we said we didn't think they could do it.

Grumble.

We're doing it.

I'll be offline a lot next week...in Atlantic City for the NDIA Homeland Defense symposium as an exhibitor. Any of you going to be there?
