Great. Spoke to Thorsten, he is really pleased that his phone bill will
get picked up, thanks Steve. Also this now means that he will be able to
call out more often (since on calling him, you can get hstuck with
Deutche Telophone D2 lines busy, and they don;t try to cre-route to him
- annoying. His calling out, however,  is usually foolproof.)

All we need now is somebody in Europe, who is in good phone contact to
volunteer to be Thorstens' intermediary.
