I know this will be a lot of help. I feel real "Charlie Brownish" today
(wishy-washy){GRIN} and one of my vendors called me a "Propeller Head"
Yesterday. Has anyone heard this term before? Or am I just that far out
in the middle of Wisconsin that it took this long to filter in?

[Back on Topic]

All I know is that our PM3's that we bought 4 months ago have been running
flawlessly. The biggest drawback I see with them is Future Compatibility
with Emerging Technologies.

I'm afraid that they will go to the stack of PM2's in about another year,
only to be replaced by something that will do "ip Telephony". Video
processing, or some new thing that the PM3's poor little 486 CPU won't be
able to handle.

You might have better luck with a PM4, your TC's or I believe Ascend make's
a more advanced product.
