How to change from PartnerMail to Asterisk?

I would like to upgrade my company's aging phone hardware from a Lucent PartnerMail system to Asterisk. Can anyone point me to a site, or worklog detailing something of this nature? We would like to keep our existing phones, and I'm not sure if and how it would support these phones.

Using 2 keyboards on one XP box...

I want to expand the number of keys available for mapping as hotkeys in some of my games. Is it possible to connect a second keyboard under Windows XP, possibly a USB one, and use it as, essentially, a very large keypad? If so, how would I go about it without causing IRQ conflicts? [more inside]

Oblivion Hardware Question

Gaming Hardware Question: I recently started playing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Right now I am running just about at the minimum required for the PC version: Pentium D 820 Dual Core (2.8 GHz) Radeon X300 SE 128MB Video Card 1GB DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz 160GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) Right now I am playing at the lowest resolution, which is fine for me. I am enjoying this game immensely as is. The only real problem is that when I an fighting 4 or more enemies at once, the game slows down and it becomes almost unplayable. I am wondering what would be the best upgrade to improve this specific aspect of game pay. I am not an obsessed gamer or anything, so I don't want to sink tons of money on a top-of-the-line video card. I don't want to spend more then $200 or so, and I am wondering if I would be better off getting a bargain 256mg video card, or if I should upgrade my system memory. Thank you.
