Adding new Status in Office Communicator

I was browsing through web this week and what interested me is adding an additional status to the Office Communicator...so googling gave some 2 to 3 approach...but after doing some R&D...this is the final approach which was successful...so here it is for your doing and enjoy...

How many of us thought the status provided in the communicator is not enough! Here is the method to add your own status messages to Communicator Client in your system... See by default there are Available, Away, Do not Disturb, Be Right Back status present in your client
in addition we can tweak to add 4 more to the list (It is supposed only 4 more can be added, I feel thats the way it works!)...
All you need is to do 2 things...

Create a XML file in the following format and put the same in your
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Communicator – folder

Goto Notepad and paste the below code and save as Presence.xml

You see the XML tags in between? ...these are status that is listed.

*********************** XML File starts here ***************************


********************** XML Ends Here ****************************

You can tweak the same file to add your own status message like Lunch time, Working from home etc.


Next step is the important one...

Sign out your communicator, go to task manager and end the process of communicator.exe, this is to ensure next time you login the Presence.xml is read from the location...


Goto Windows registry editor... in Start > Run > Regedit

Traverse to node HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Communicator

Create 2 things given below,

1. Create a String key with name CustomStateURL, give the value as

file:///c:/Program Files/Microsoft Office Communicator/Presence.xml

(Path of your XML file in c:\ we are using File protocol to call it, that’s all!)











The purpose of creating DWORD key is in Office communicator R2 edition, they have secured the way the Status is read, they have made the status to be read from Server (they consider that Highly secure !?!).. Not any more!!!


2. Create a DWORD key with the name EnableSIPHighSecurityMode, give the value as 0 (ZERO), it will be interpreted as 0x00000000(0)





Done!! ... Sign in to your communicator and you can see your status ... Viola!!!

Penguins of madagascar - a review

I came across this animated series when i happened to see Madagascar animation film...in that DVD was this X-MAS collection of Penguins of madagascar episodes... I instantly hooked on to it and started to watch all the episodes and i don't know when i fall in love with it!... This show is run by 4 main characters Skipper, Private, Kowalski, Rico and supporting roles by the Otter Marlene and lazy King Julien...these 4 guys will solve all problems the zoo throws at them with military style, which i feel adds up to it.





I like Rico, who swallows valuable things like bombs,when need he will regurgitate and use them...one such example will be in an episode where one of his team mate will get lost , Skipper will devise a plan to rescue him from a lady who thought him to be a penguin toy and took home.... at last it was Rico's "Kaboooom".... which taught that lady a lesson... LOL :)


Kowalski seems to be scientific minded who comes with tricks and plan, when his skipper consults him... he is good at maths and physics who comes with a strategy to solve a problem...In an episode Skipper will always consult Kowalski over a solution
mostly with a 2 word statement

Kowalski option.... Kowalski status...

One such example is a popcorn bag being snatched by King Julien...


Kowalski... Legal analysis ...
He got you skipper ... It's finder's treaty of blah blah...


Well i can go on and write more but now i am watching an episode of penguins.. while i write this...there are many episodes which will make a good time for you... Enjoy!

Jhonty Rhodes - A man ahead of ball

Well what can i say about a man who changed the dynamics of Cricket game just by fielding and taught others how matches can be won by fielding alone...What thorough obedience in the fielding will cost...a man who always stays a foot or two above the ground... Yes, Its none other than our Jhonty Rhodes... who always is one step ahead of ball.




If ball does 100 Kmphs off bat,Jhonty will do 101 to catch it!!!...if i remember it right i came across a comment on him saying that "Earth is covered by 75% water and rest 25% by Jhonty."




If you see the above video, one can only imagine what happened as the stumps suddenly got uprooted!!!... It shows how Jhonty is attentive in the field.. the secret behind his ability is the pace he generates in the first few (nano..micro!!)seconds as he sees the ball approaching him...You can see him behave like normal man only in slow-motion video as he is terribly quick for the live one.


:) Good night!
