I spent most of the day reinstalling my Mac in the hope that it'd get the bluetooth headset working, found it didn't, and finally worked out how to fix it anyway.
The headsat (Jabra 250V) was pairing and connecting fine, but not appearing as an input/output device in sound controls. I'd been through the solution here a dozen times before and after the reinstall, but it didn't work. Finally I worked out that a) this headset should work fine on Tiger, b) this was a known issue on machines that had previously run Panther then upgraded to Tiger, c) it couldn't be a software issue as I'd completely wiped the machine, and d) the "reset your NVRAM" hints that had been scaring me elsewhere for Bluetooth issues actually made sense here. Once I rebooted with CMD-OPT-P-R it *finally* paired correctly and appeared in the Sound control panel.

http://www.idrewthis.org/ is amusing, again.

And I got about 10 minutes dedicated to my email on the last In The Trenches podcast.
