Are you thinking of STLQuote? They're the only "canned" system that I
know of. STLQuote was owned by Formability, which is (was?) one of a
series of companies that Ron (James) Barranco is behind, which includes,,,,,, and The earliest
correspondence I have tor STLQuote is April 2002, and May 2002 is the
earliest copy of the website that maintains. Of course, APP
owns STLQuote now, and if they're concerned about the QuickParts patent,
it probably isn't in their best interest to reply in public.

If it wasn't STLQuote, do you remember anything about it that may help
track it down?

I hadn't heard of the "combover" patent, but I have heard about a patent
for exercising your cat: 5443036 (although how the cat can see
*in*visible light eludes me.) The patent you're referring to is
4022227, if you want to look it up!
