	Heh!  It's funny; I assumed you were Deaf because of how confident
you were about your work.  My comments weren't directed at you (you at
least have had some contact with Deaf people); I just wanted to mention
how this phenomenon of hotshot programmers is nothing new either.  In any
case, I appreciate that you're willing to listen and ask questions.  But
I'm still waiting for someone to ask some Deaf people what kind of
natural-language technology they'd actually like to see.
