Not offhand.  However it should be possible.  There are a number of
commercial programs for Unix that might do such a thing.  Also it would be
very very interesting if we somehow combined this stuff with Hylafax's
ability to do alpha-numeric pages.  Then we have a world class environment
that can page people with appointments/important events through

Anybody working on a backend of something like that?  Or can we use
Hylafax as a codebase.  I'm not sure if it's GPL or not but that might be
a good project.  (not me, I don't know enough about this stuff)

I think I can try do that.

An interesting proposition.  I'll see what I can do.  I've long been
petitioning that our company give donations to GNU software project as we
depend on some of these tools to do our business.
