Telecom News in TELECOM Digest

No offense, but I read other sources of news, and I see the stuff
below in several places where it's accurately sorted by topic.  I read
Telecom Digest to get *telecom* related information, not the latest
Dish TV "special" or what Amazon is doing this week.  Just a simple

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: And no offense taken. Monty Solomon is
a sort of exceptional case among my various correspondents. He works 
for free, mind you, with his e-press clipping service, sending me just
tons of good items for the Digest, stuff I would never be able to sit
around investigating and looking at own my own given my own limited
resources. Not all strictly, absolutely telecom related, except often
times in a very peripheral way. At one point in time -- maybe until a
year ago more or less -- I was simply taking all his material and
running it as one large 'column' of news in each issue. But then
several readers suggested breaking his stuff into individusl items, 
as he sent it, and run each piece separately, so that people could 
quickly sort through it and take only want they wanted to read, and
after some discussion here in the Digest, that is how it wound up 
coming down. Use your key to move forward and skip what of his was
not wanted. 

To improve on this plan slightly, last week with the help of our
reader jmat@mac.com (a guy named Mattox out of Madison, WI I think)
we 'colorized' the web-based newsletter published here in the
http://telecom-digest.org 'latest issue' file, making the subject
lines come out in red and emphasized slightly, so that people who 
choose to read that version and can slide their mouse rapidly down 
the screen picking through things to read (a lot like when you can
through a printed newspaper and scan for headlines of interest), they
can speed right along looking for the occassional red emphasized line
of print. Likewise, the notes I insert from time to time (too often
and too long in the opinion of some readers) are also offset with a
different color for the few of you who like to read my words of
wisdom (or tons of balogna if you prefer, so you can skip over those
as well.) The coloring is only for that file, which is usually set
in place with a 'pre' command and dismissed with a '/pre' command at
the end of each issue. The coloring is not in the archives, and not
on this ascii-text based edition many of you are reading now. I hope
that helps many of you sort through what you want and don't want to
see in the Digest each issue.   PAT]

Digium Responses for Telecom Digest [Telecom]
Moderator's Note: After a recent thread that brought up the subject of Asterisk PBX's, I decided to get some more information to share with the readers. I wrote to Digium sales, and submitted a list of questions. Herewith, the answers from Digium: because their response contained Microsoft character remnants, I had to redo the numbering. I also repositioned some questions and answers to make the topics more clear: any confusion is my fault.

Telecom Digest archives questions [TELECOM]
All, I had a discussion tonight with Bill about our archives. As most of you are aware we have long maintained our own set of archives here: http://massis.lcs.mit.edu/telecom-archives/. This forum started in 1981 when Sergey and Larry were doing whatever 8 year-olds did in 1981 and Google Groups did not exist. If we wanted an archive we had to do it ourselves. I can't speak for everyone, but going back and reading the old archives has been like a trip down memory lane. I remember when we had The Phone Company and would wait until 11 PM to call our grandparents to save on to...

Telecom Digest Info file [telecom]
This is the "Info" document for The Telecom Digest. It is sent automatically to new subscribers, and posted occasionally in the Digest. The Telecom Digest is an electronic magazine, or e-zine, devoted mostly to telecommunications, and mostly to the Companies, technology, regulations, politics, and people that affect, create, maintain, and govern the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) of the world. This is, as the above paragraph no doubt implies, much easier to _do_ than to _explain_. We cover any subject that's related to the telephone network, including Voi...
