I think I'm going to check out mon.  I haven't used it yet but it looks
very cool.  Thanks for your input.  If it doesn't work out, I'll hit you
up for a peek at your script.

Experts?  Well, Jared Smith knows his stuff but I don't think he follows
the list.  He will likely present to one of the user groups in the area
on the topic (it seems to be a topic many are interested in).  Other
then that, there are several of us on the list that use Asterisk at work
and home.  Start a new thread with your questions and we'll see what we
can do.
