We always dig the most amazing and varied expertise out of the woodwork on this forum but this one should be a challenge.

Although I'm not directly responsible to find this software for them, I'm working with a client who needs IP based (SNPP)software that is a simple front end for paging. It is for a hospital and their emergency services so they need to be able to page individuals and groups as quickly as possible.

They want to mimic their old system where if they know the pager number they hit a button that macros the first 7 digits (always the same) and then they simply type the 4 remaining digits and hit enter. Also, hot keys for key emergency groups that will send multiple pages via a distribution list.

The key is, they can not be forced into a system that requires a mouse. Their mouse hand is already too busy running the switchboard program on PC #2. Yup, they even refuse to run the paging system on the same PC as the switchboard because they feel they would lose precious seconds [alt] [tabbing] back and forth. Their switchboard software even supports paging but they are really stuck on the separate app on a second PC.

I've looked at a couple but thought I'd throw it out here for fun too.

I read the first sentence, Murph, and I'm lookin' everywhere for pix of something made from wood.

In future, please warn of any and all approaching metaphors. Thank you.

I used Sendpage on a couple servers to receive SNPP messages. Included in the package is a SNPP client written in Perl.

I don't know of any off-the-shelf software that'll do what you want. Though there may be, I've just not looked too hard, because I'm on the other end of pages. If there's not, it shouldn't be too hard to whip up an interface that calls the SNPP client software in the background.

Thanks!
See even finding someone on "the other end of pages" fulfills my metaphor.

>>Warning:: Another metaphor approaching!<<
I'm sorry to hear you can't find any wood Bob. Don't worry, your luck will change.

Edit: OK more of an innuendo but hey, I write technical stuff all day. I come here to express my inner randomness.

Crosswalks for your metaphors are greatly appreciated.

Got anything for tornadoes?

Bob, I'm sure all you need right now is another wood innuendo.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.
