Yes, that is what I am looking at. There can be no other possible 
answer. Apparently they look in cookbooks and old sock piles for prior 
art on software patents. Maybe someone should nudge them and point 
toward Google.

Step 1: Take the title of the patent and copy it.
Step 2: Paste it into the Google search bar.
Step 3: Click the I'm feeling lucky button.
Step 4: Print.
Step 5: Send to patent applicant with denial letter.

Hmmm, that process definitely looks patentable.
