Thank you for your patience, my flatbed scanner wasn't working.

Got this excellent documentation from Janus Mail on the Call for Recall. Now I really could not recall what I had sent and it turns out I had not sent anything. So quick as a bunny I sent off something for the next call - Ray of Light. Wonder if Ray knows he has a cult following.
