Home-grown conference manager repair

For anyone using my home-grown conference manager, otherwise known as a kludge, I've figured out what was causing the dial to drop to the default "s" extension: In the "callthis.php" script, in the line starting with "asterisk_command", change "Exten: Local/201" so that it reads "Exten: 201".

For some reason, the call manager only likes channel names in the Channel variable. It doesn't like them in the Extension variable when setting up calls.

In hindsight, it's kinda obvious, no?
