Our current Call Manager 4.x servers are creaking under their age, and we are looking at replacing this either with a new Cisco telephony system or a completely new system altogether. The system has to use IP as the connection to the handsets, as we don't want to add in more cables.
Has anyone any experience in deploying a new Call manager setup, or a similar telephony system, and how was the accessibility?
This is a frequently asked question on linux lists. It usually generates quite a bit of debate because the military doesn't usually tell people what they can do so you can only speculate on what it would take to destroy the data so that even the military can't recover it. Certainly, if you destroy the platter physically by doing something like hitting it with a hammer, that should do it.
But most people believe that just wiping the disk a dozen or so times will do it. You can do that with the dd command lie this:
Dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/sda
Thats if your disk is a sata drive. For IDE drives, the command would be:
Dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/had
Those commands write random digits over the entire drive, wiping out the boot sector, partition table, and all data. You would have to do that several times because the read/write heads might not line up exactly right to destroy every single bit if you do it just once.

This announcement represents a friendly reminder for all of you to listen to an important, two hour live Main Menu coming right up later today.
Coming up on an exciting two hour live program, we hear from a panel of technology industry experts all about CAPTCHA (visual verification) and other forms of visual authentication, accessibility challenges to existing visual verification systems, the balance between human rights and security, existing solutions for providing reasonable accomodations to visual authentication and emerging accessibility solutions.
We are proud to introduce an impressive panel of experts and their primary areas of focus:
* Matt May from the Adobe Systems Accessibility Team will discuss his 2005 W3C note on the inaccessibility of CAPTCHA.
* Luis von Ahn from ReCAPTCHA at Carnegie Mellon University will describe their accessible solution.
* Steve Dispensa from PhoneFactor will tell us all about an innovative, telephone based two-factor authentication system.
The accessibility of CAPTCHA (visual verification schemes on the web) and other similar forms of visual authentication is a topic of utmost importance to the blind, visually impaired and others with print reading disabilities. Real, universally accessible solutions are going to require significant amounts of effort, good will and out-of-the-box thinking. We encourage active participation by the blind community, members on all sides of the issue from the mainstream technology industry and those sighted people who care about what happens to us.

I have openssh installed on a thumb drive. It works with both jaws and nvda. I have nvda on the same thumb drive so I don't need to install anything on a borrowed computer if I need to do some work.

.I'm going to be taking a trip this holiday weekend. I'd like to do

I'm a university student, and I have finished all my coursework for my
computing course. I am therefore writing to offer you a copy of my
project report. As you will see the project is based on a technical
support system I plan to set up in the future, using JAWS Tandem to
remotely assist somebody in using a computer.
If any of you would like a copy, please let me know off list, so I can
possibly attach it or upload it somewhere. Note it's 23 pages in length,
and it's in Microsoft Word 2007 format. I can, however, convert it if
Thanks, and I look forward to any offers.

Subject: [Blind-sysadmins] Any Accessible Way to do Cisco Router Simulation
I fear I know the answer to this, but I'd rather not assume. I'm working on my CCNA course, and am curious if there's any way at all to do router simulations of any sort without having a physical device. While I can use the devices at where I'm taking the class, there are times I want to try something without having to wait to go in and use them. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
