One small ray of sunshine!

I now have voice mail. And not just any voice mail, either--this thing will send an e-mail to me with a .wav file attached of the message that I can listen to! I feel so very, very 21st Century!

Thank you, Phone Guy!

Now then, back to the salt mine.

Oh, and I found out it's not really salt--best as I can tell, it's a giant septic tank.

I have never seen one of those voicemails--how does it work (generate an email to be sent)? Is it part of your computer (a software package?) or is it a separate hardware device with some sort of USB connectivity? And can we email IT?

My voicemail is like that and my phone is voice over IP.

The system is Cisco Unity, and it somehow interacts with our Microsoft Outlook (I suspect it has to do with spider monkeys) to generate a phone message notification and attachment. You can also call in and get your voice mail just like a regular system.

Does this mean Chet is on the unemployment line?

No, we're talking about my paying job, not the volunteer work I do as maniacal dictator of the Axis of Weevil. Chet is still safe.

For now.
