Steve -
If you write the software relating to a specific SignPuddle dictionary  
that is dedicated to times and dates starting at 399 BC (smile), then  
our non-profit organization can hire signwriters to write all the  
dates and times, creating a great big database that you can access for  
your software...

In this Date-Time Database, we could start with ASL, but be able to  
add other signed languages, as the writers are found to enter the data  
in their sign language...

Is this what you need, Steve, for your software?

This would provide part-time work for signwriters, to enter the  
SignWriting data into the database...

If there is anyone on the list, who would be interested in part time  
work writing SignWriting data, please write to me privately and we can  
talk about it...

The work would be under our non-profit organization, the Center for  
Sutton Movement Writing...We need to build a team of signwriters for a  
variety of projects...

Val ;-)
