Petition to Withdraw Holding of Abandonment under 37 CFR 1.181(a) 
Sir, 

This letter is in response to the Notice of Abandonment dated 1/24/2008. In response to 
the Notice of Abandonment, Applicant respectfully requests that the holding of 
abandonment be withdrawn and that Examiner enter the issue fee payment properly filed 
on 12/24/2007. In support of this request, Applicant submits the following statement: 

1. On September 9, 2007, Examiner Nagpaul sent a Notice of Allowance to 
Applicant for U.S. Application No. 10/764,710. 

2. On December 24, 2007, Applicant filed a response to the Notice of Allowance, 
The response was filed via first class mail and included a proper certificate of 
mailing. The signed and dated certificate of mailing showed that the date of 
deposit was December 24, 2007. The response also included a check for $1740 
and an authorization to charge deposit account 200678 for any deficiency in 
payment. Furthermore, the response included a Notification of Change of Small 
Entity Status. (See Enclosure 1) 

3. Nevertheless, even though the issue fee payment and publication fee payment 
were timely filed with a proper certificate of mailing, on 1/24/08 Examiner 
Nagpaul sent a Notice of Abandonment. 

4. Because Applicant's December 24, 2007 reply was timely filed with a proper 
certificate of mailing, and included the required fees as well as an authorization to 
charge all fee deficiencies to deposit account 200678, Applicant respectfully 
requests that the holding of abandonment be withdrawn and that Examiner enter 
the response filed on December 24, 2007.
