Re: We have arrived at the stage
acutally, i've just thought of a use case.
our dog goes mental when the doorbell rings, barking loudly, scratching like mad at the lounge door
so some system that would put a message on the phones of the people inside instead of the loud ringing bell would be perfect. we could get up and get the pizza without the mutt being any the wiser.
however, i doubt there's anyway the pizza delivery person would be bothered with all of this, so i'd have to say that this implementation of a solution to my problem is flawed
