D'oh! Guilty (and ignorant) as charged. Thank you Mike (and others) for enlightening me :)

Bloody classic really - I've always know it worked that way because I used to "tap out" free calls home to Mum to pick me up when I was a lad and needed a ride home. This was before the times of cellphones of course - but there were these little red telephone boxes all over the place and if you 'reverse tapped' your phone number you could call Mum without needing 20c!

Now I gotta get on and drive this mob of sheep down to the market then get some fush & chips...

Happy NY all
