Re: Paging Comfort CWI Gurus...


Yes, I probably will drop Dan a line.  Thought I'd post here first as
the CWI group is very quiet and Dan seems to be busy on other business
projects guaging by his web site.

By the way, did you solve your problem with Remote Desktop?  I noted
this as when you raised it, I was just in the process of switching to
a new server (located in the loft too) which could run TTS. I had the
same problem with Remote Desktop so have dropped back to VNC. While
perhaps not quite as quick as RD, it seems to me, perfectly fine for
managing a remote server and allows reboots etc too.

One other query, I think you use TTS too.  Which voices do you use and
where did you source them?  I'm still trying to track down a UK
supplier of ATT's Audrey.
