Pity all the poor saps who didn't take the time (or have the ability?) to 
copy the call after jumping on the packet spot, as they all now get 
penalized for NILs if Eric turns in his log.  The log-checking software will 
figure out they were actually working Eric, but that they logged the call 
incorrectly, thanks to the wonders of technology.
