I've often told them "you know, you could just stop taking A LOT of that stuff", especially after they tell me how sick they get from the side effects...

So why don't you write them a prescription for what they *actually* need. I'm guessing you're a certified doctor because you know what they should and shouldn't be on.

Our PBX lets us specify the Caller ID for any extension. However if we attempt to use a number not in our DDI range BT will clip the Caller ID to our main number. Any legitimate telecoms provider should do this to prevent spoofing. The same goes for *some* of the SIP providers I've talked to - they need proof of ownership of the DDI before they will allow you to set the Caller ID, however I imagine it's fairly easy to get around.

CO2 works fine too, but the hand flapping and increased respiration attempts aren't real pretty to watch

I'm pretty sure that the increased respiration attempts aren't enjoyable to endure either - the body senses heightened levels of CO2 as a sign of suffocation. Whereas CO simply attaches to red blood cells instead of O2, meaning there's no sense of suffocation.

There are no data that cannot be plotted on a straight line if the axis are chosen correctly.
