I was a bit under the weather last week, and wasn't able to post.
Now that I'm feeling better and back into service, I thought I would pass on the following website / service: http://www.callsteward.com/
The site allows you to schedule calls, and get confirmations back from those called. You can get a free demo on the site. I could see a use for this in a variety of situation, above and beyond union calls. Check it out!
