MUSHCode for Answering Machine

@create Answering machine
@desc Answering machine=A simple answering machine, it listens for people to arrive, then records the time they visited. If you want to leave a message for the owner, type 'memo <whatever you want to say>'.
@va answering machine=<+>
@vb Answering machine=<_>
@vc Answering machine=@switch strlen(v(va))=3,{},{"People have visited.};@switch strlen(v(vb))=3,{},{"You have messages.}
@vd Answering machine=NOTES: the commands to use this machine are 'show guests', 'play messages', 'clear guests', 'memo <message>', and 'clear messages'. These commands do exactly what you would expect them to. The AHEAR on the machine makes it so when the owner of the machine arrives, his/her name is not recorded(to save space). The AHEAR will trigger VC when the owner arrives. VC checks to see if anyone has visited, or if there are any messages, and will notify the owner of such facts. If there are no visitors, nor any messages, the answering machine will do nothing when the owner arrives.
