One of the many benefits of OnSIP is that you can set it up all by yourself. There's no waiting on your service provider (us) to set anything up for you. Want to add users? Missing a few voice mailboxes? You can do it with a few clicks of your mouse. How about an auto-attendant or a call group? Same deal.

Checking your OnSIP voicemail is as easy as dialing *98 from your desk phone and entering your mailbox and pin numbers. The Voicemail Manager allows users to check their voicemail messages or manage their voicemail box. But what if you're away from the office and don't have access to your SIP phone?
Suppose your on summer vacation with the family and just remembered that you forgot to change your voicemail message to tell clients that you'll be out of the office this week. Or maybe you travel for work and need to check your messages from the road. Whatever the reason, we've got you covered.

Overall, Drupal 7 has improved a lot in terms of core and UI. It is a lot nicer to navigate around the administration area and easier to find what you need. It has a bit of WordPress feeling to it.
From the development aspect, Drupal 7 is better organized and simplified with a few great additions. For example, one core addition is the out-of-the-box jQuery library, hence, the fancy overlay administration interface added in D6. Another cool addition is having the CCK Fields module included.

Security means different things to different people. To a system administrator, it can be the difference between a relaxing weekend and weeks of hell that never end. To end users, it's a trade-off between convenience and using something other than 'abc123' or '123456' as their passwords. Here’s a metric many can understand: security is the opposite of convenience.
We have very secure SIP passwords for OnSIP. We get all kinds of comments on the complexity. We are proud of that complexity; it keeps all of us secure and allows us to give you a great service at a bottom-line price. If we let everyone make their own SIP passwords, we’d be getting hacked all the time, which would be costly. NO ONE wants that! Our SIP password security keeps our CTO smiling. I think.

The Small Business Loan Fallacy
I talk to many small business owners, customers, partners, and friends, who all tell me they can’t get loans from banks. (Thankfully, this isn’t problem for us. I’m the CFO of Junction Networks, and we are fully bootstrapped and profitable.) On the other hand, I hear so much in the news about the $ billions of federal programs that are helping small businesses. So, I thought I’d look into the matter.
Yes, it’s bullshit. Sort of. Banks are lending, but only indirectly to small businesses. Here are the top three questions a few banks asked when we discussed working capital loans:

On Sunday night, we were hit hard with snow in NY, NJ, and surrounding areas. Outside my door in Westchester, we got 25 inches or so. My beagle can hardly hop through it, and my car was absolutely buried in it. Once upon a time, this wintery wonderland meant no school and no work, but not today. For those of us at Junction Networks who couldn't make it into the office, we can bring our office to our couch. This is because we use a variety of hosted applications to communicate and work. In fact, there is almost nothing I can do at my desk that I can't do at home. Here's a quick overview of tools that make virtual working a cinch:

Every once in a while, I come across an innovation that makes a task in my life much easier. It's that feeling of clarity when the clouds open, sunlight shines down, and I wonder how I ever got along in life without it. Some examples: Google Maps/Docs/Mail, keyless pushbutton car ignition, Shazam, PetFoodDirect.com, SeamlessWeb, HopStop.com, Kindle Mobile App, Alarm (any, on mobile phones), and now Mockingbird.

When firefighters, police, and EMS respond to an emergency, they do so with the help of trained people in the 911 center who know how to get as much information as possible from the caller reporting the emergency. The more precise the location, description of the incident, and caller's contact information, the faster resources can get to the scene with the proper equipment and trained personnel. Lives can be saved or lost in the seconds it may take to find victims. As a volunteer firefighter and friend to many 911 dispatchers, I know how important it is for them to get as much information as possible. It's a very hard job, trying to get someone involved in a life-threatening event to calm down and tell what the street name is. You're probably wondering what the heck it has to do with OnSIP, other than the phone part. My wife tells me that every conversation I have, I find a way to interject "fire nonsense".

This blog is by Mike Steiner, a member of our Support team. Traveling for the holidays? Did you know you can easily forward your OnSIP phone number to an external phone number so you don't miss a call? Just think, you could forward it to your cell phone and leave a little early for the holiday. (Note: It's probably a good idea to ask your boss first!) If you'd like to try this out, but need some guidance, feel free to check out how to add an external phone number for further information.
