Auto start for older fax machines
When an older fax machine and a telephone, which share a line. are located in different rooms, an annoying situation may arise. When the telephone rings and the receiver is taken from the hook, it is found that it is a fax message. By the time the fax machine has been reached and the start knob on it is pressed, the caller has given up.
