Anyone on here using Charter Telephone VOIP service? I've currently
got Verizon, but the wife hates it because our phone lines get flaky
all the time, esp when it rains.
So I'm thinking to save money and combine all my stuff onto Charter.
I've already got High Speed internet and regular old cable. Not wild
about Digital Cable since I'm happy with Tivo and I don't want yet
another set top box to have to deal with...
So, any horror stories about Charter Phone VOIP quality and service?
At work, I have an RS6000 running AIX 5.3. The on-board NIC controller
failed. I installed a dual-port Intel Pro 10/100/1000 NIC card.
When I start the server, the Intel card isn't recognized. SMIT doesn't
see it either. What do I have to do in SMIT so that I can use the card?

the request came to me via a friend:
I'm looking for working PCs that are no longer needed by
their owners. We have many students that could benefit from the hands on
learning that can only be made available through private donations. As one of
three instructors here at the Shriver Job Corps Center , I would
personally see to all systems being cleaned of private information by wiping
all internal hard drives using DOD, (Department Of Defense), Standards. Each
operating PC would then be entered into our training program for our students
as a break/fix computer.
If you know of anyone who may be interested in participating
for the sake of our students, please pass along this note. Although all
donations will be greatly appreciated it would not be a tax write-off but you
will be able to sleep better knowing that you have helped aspiring technicians
learn a trade and become active working participants in this great country of
Anyone having questions, please don't hesitate to call or
I hope you are having a great summer.

I have a friend looking for donations of old equipment to help out http://shriver.jobcorps.gov/, a "no-cost education and vocational training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor that helps young people ages 16 through 24" at Devens, MA.
If anyone has any qualifying equipment, let me know and we will see about arrangements.
