Whoops. See, I was asleep at the wheel. Just call me native! to the core.

This was my take on the code. It seems to be a way to use a centralized, non-brand specific system, where branding can then be used to personalize the response.

I would prefer a message something like, "If the sun spots are not too bright and you *have* paid your bill, then the message has gone through." ;-) By the way, the "person" that lives at 416-555-1212 is really fascinating! ;-)

program. It is clever. First, I've specifically noted, but I have little doubt that there are more out there.
End of my irrelevant comments, except to acknowledge that I was not paying close attention to the messages. Sorry!! (Scott gracefully exits stage left) --Scott Jones
