Here's what is probably a common experience for those who listen to broadcasts of sports events on the radio. You are happily listening to the commentary, when it is rudely interrupted by someone in the studio turning off the commentary and giving score updates from other matches.

Tired of raucously fighting and mating cats waking you up at two am in the morning? How about this dastardly scheme to keep cats in their homes at night - I am sure all cat owners will appreciate this one!

How often have you rung a telephone number, an answering machine replies, and you hang up because you don't want to leave a message? Is it possible to design the system so the ringer is alerted by a particular ringing tone that an answering machine is switched on and will come on in say one minutes time if nobody answers the phone? We would then have the option of hanging up before the machine answers the call. It would save a lot of money. For example, in Australia where I live, if...
