I took a cursory glance at the newly release Android 2.3 SDK. There’s one item that immediately caught my attention, the addition of SIP.
My impression is that it is a very basic SIP stack. There’s not much to it. Create your session, tell it who you want to talk to (URI), make the audio call. What I don’t see (or it’s not readily apparent to me) is a way to easily extend the class to add to or modify the SDP. If I’m wrong, please correct me.
Doesn’t seem to support video. Doesn’t seem to allow use of different or custom media streams.
A couple friends of mine have asked how I protect my most valuable digital possessions, the 1000+ pictures of my daughter.
Over the last 9 months we’ve amassed 1000′s of photos. I quickly realized that if my computer hard drive failed (and some day it will), I would lose every single one of those memories. I’m going to share with you what I think is my full proof plan to backing up my digital photos (and any other files or data you need to backup).
I’m getting the hang of Outlook 2007 and I’m trying to really use the “To-Do Bar” more effectively. I’m using it to track all my open items that need to get done. I do most of my effort tracking through email. When something comes to my inbox, if I need to make it a task I mark the flag for follow-up.
I ran into a problem recently with regard to personal folders. I use my rules to dump messages into personal folders instead of storing them on the Exchange server. When I try to track these messages as new tasks they wouldn’t show up in the To-Do Bar.
Right click on your Personal Folder and select “Properties for ‘Personal Folder’”…
Make certain the box is checked for “Display reminders and tasks from this folder in the To-Do Bar”. Hit “OK”.
Now if you select any message for follow-up, it should appear in your To-Do Bar as a new task.
I’m not crazy about the digg revamp. But it is what it is and I’ll deal with the change. EXCEPT when it comes to advertisements in the digg posts. The list now contains ads (very clever guys).
I’m an adblock user, so I’ve added the following to my adblock filter:
That seems to keep the digg list ads blocked for now.
