With Vonage, I have a little phone router called the PAP2 from Linksys. It uses a 5V 2A AC adapter whose tip's polarity is positive. Through the tragedy of moving internationally, I have lost the original adapter. I have sought high and low for a replacement. To make a long story short, in Canada, I can go to The Source (formerly Radioshack) and if you go to the digital camera section instead of the AC adapter section, you can find the one adapter that will fit your needs. 2000mA, with voltages at 3, 5, 6, 6.4, 7 and 7.5V DC. I'll note that none of the plugs are the right fit, so you might have to spend another 3CAD on a K-type plug tip.
Now joining the ranks of IMAqua and DJAqua as unused but awesome plugins comes EvoAqua. A plugin for the Evolution mail client that announces aloud an incoming message's sender and subject.
It uses Speech Dispatcher, as always, to speak.
GNOME Bug 607610 has the patch to Evolution to add the plugin. I'll try to separate it out at sometime, but it will require at least Evolution 2.29.2, since it relies on functionality that wasn't around until then. So, most people will want to wait until 2.30?
My girlfriend isn't fond of her desktop e-mail client starting up to handle mailto: links to people's e-mails. I am not sure why, but even I once used an extension to make Gmail's compose window open for e-mail addresses. Well, now no extension is needed.
Go to your options window (Linux: Edit -> Preferences, Windows: Tools -> Options, I think), then go to the Applications section, and then filter on "mailto". Then, you can click the handler on the right (Evolution, Outlook, whatever), and change it to Gmail! (Or, Yahoo!, whatever.)
