3000 Visitors on one month!
I remember thinking, when I hit 2000 visitors in a month, I will never make 3000!
jbmurphy.com’s first year in blogging
I had a goal last year, a goal of blogging 2 times a week for the entire year. I ended up with 116 posts. A couple of those posts were a few dates late, so I did not meet my exact goal of 2 times week, but I always managed 4 posts in every two weeks. My year end results are 16,368 visits and 14,067 unique visitors. Fun stuff. I know is it no much, but I see a upward trent in the graph below! Wonder where I will be next year?
I hope my tech ramblings are useful to the 14,067 people that visited my site.
Back to 2000 visitors a month!
September and October we light. Backup up at 2000 for November! I better get busy if I ever want to hit 3000!
Fun with Toshiba IPT 2010 phones and NAT
We have a Toshiba phone system in our office. I don’t know much about it, because it is run by the very capable @mattsix, but today I jumped and did a little troubleshooting.
The reoccurring issue we had, was that a remote phone would connect to the IPU, ring, but there would be no audio. We were testing with an Airport Extreme hooked up to a DSL modem and an IPT 201-SD hooked to that.
First, we found this thread. We checked the “NAT/No Peer to Peer ” settings and they seemed right. Then I cam across this post. Wait, what? There are different types of NAT? I did not know that. As soon as we moved the Airport Extreme out of the mix, and put in a D-Link gaming router, the audio started working.
I guess the Airport Extreme is using Symmetric NAT and the D-Link is using a more capable NAT.
Mystery solved? We shall see.
Update: I found this in the “Starta CIX General Description”
The Strata CIX supports the use of IP telephones that are behind NAT firewalls.
Symmetric — At this time these routers may cause unreliable service or cause unwanted symptoms. These routers are not compatible with Strata CIX and Strata Net IP configurations

1000 visitors in a month!
I have been using this Analytics Widget on my dashboard and I just hit 1000 visits in a month! I know that is nothing in compared to a real site, but it is a milestone (in my mind)!
DrivesMeNuts: Windows shutdown tracker
You know that drop down box that looks like this (called the Shutdown Tracker):
Every month when I patch servers it DrivesMeNuts that Microsoft did not put in a “Planned” option for “Operating System: Patching”
Every time I click the shutdown tracker, I think: “Microsoft intentionally left “Patching” off the selection list, so that the logs don’t track the amount of patching we have to do!”
