after a long hiatus I am back to hacking! It feels very good to be getting work done again... I think that working on this project is going to be hard to stop once the school year starts ;) Anyway, I've got the message cap working properly... the mailbox hangs up on the call when the incoming message hits X seconds (60 seconds is the default).
Up next is coding up a GUI form for the mailbox config parameters. I'm a bit worried that my Swing-fu has gotten weak from lack of exercise, so I may have my nose buried in a tutorial for a good portion of the rest of this evening.
Wish me luck.
