My telephone is more limited than Richard's and it only uses capital letters.
So the letter equivalent of 782-8272 (the common way of writing phone
numbers here in the US) is STA-TAPC. Wonder why they wrote that
as STATA-PC on the startup screen??? Hmmm.

For all of us who get picked on for capitalizing Stata to STATA,
implying an acronym, I just noticed that using Stata 9 for OS X, the
"Official Updates" menu option writes, when updating from,

"update from STATA"

in the command field.

Plus, have you ever noticed that the startup screen says 800-STATA-PC? :)
