Dear Click and Clack:

I notice Tommy has been playing with various ways to state yourphone number on the air. Perhaps you have already thought ofthis one??? Roman numerals. I can find only the Roman numeralsup through 1,000 [M], so I had to segment your number the waythe phone companies do rather than write one eleven-digitnumber...and I still don't like what I wrote for the lastfour digits [8255].

Anyhow, this is what I came up with:

I-DCCCLXXXVIII-CCXXVII-MMMMMMMMXXLV

Or, you could segment them into a series of one-digit numbers:

I-VIII-VIII-VIII-II-II-VII-VIII-II-V-V

Whaddaya think? Maybe you guys can find other Roman numerals fornumbers higher than 'M'.

I love the show. Keep up the good work, you two "zeroes."
