    ROFL Bert.

    Czar, you make something as boring as a telephone stand out. It's the simplistic background that makes the image what it is as well as the dark tones to your processing. However, it certainly does brink back memories of my childhood listening to that buzz when you pick the receiver up and then hoping the telephone number you had to dial had no "big numbers or zeros" in it .

    Always baffled me that the emergency number was 999 yet it took the longest to dial.

    The M9 take this or your 40D?

    Thanks mate. It was the 40D. I had a rush of blood to the head last week, but came to my senses just in time.

    The 9-9-9 format was chosen based on the Button A and Button B design of pre-payment coin operated public payphones in wide use, (first introduced in 1925), which could be easily modified to allow free use of the 9 digit on the rotary dial, without allowing free use of any other number combination.
