Lurching off on a tangent:

If Pentax is the first party, and Yvon is the third party, who is the second party?

I know that this sounds like the beginning of a Marx brothers routine with reference to a sanity clause , but it's more-than-halfway serious question. It probably belongs in another forum on another site but here we are .....
But the even more pressing issue is "Who's on first?"

party question

You are!
It really is the right answer.

1st party - Manufacturer
2nd party - Customer
3rd Party - whoever else is in between, beside, before or after...be it a supplier, distributor, or someone who makes something that's an add-on to the 1st party's product.

So we recall the following:

Minder announces: I am number two.

Prisoner demands: Who is number one?

Minder blandly responds: You are number six.

OK, enough cult Patrick McGoohan references.

Thanks - that makes sense. Probably should have figured that out myself, but why bother with so many helpful folk about?

I don't know.

Triumphant chorus: "Third base!!"

Not sure everyone here follows references to the Marx brothers, The Prisoner, or Abbott and Costello.

I should go back to work ....

Or perhaps with slightly different punctuation. But that would be a spoiler.
