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.

m.p.

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 stata.com,

"update from STATA"

in the command field.

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