Hello Peter!

Congratulations!...You got a better grade than the scoring allowed?!  
Ha...imagine A++

Well that makes me feel good too...I am happy that SignWriting and our  
wonderful software, SignPuddle, could give you such a great grade,  
coupled with your hard work of course, and the good advice from your  
friends and professors...

Was this at the University of Colorado? Tell us again what course this  
was for? and where?

Yes I would like your help...Do we have permission to see your final  
document in Microsoft Word, now that it received an A++? ;-)

With your permission, we could make a PDF from your Microsoft Word  
document, and place the PDF in our SignWriting Library Online as a  
document that other students can download and learn from...

If that is ok with you, please send it to us and I will make the PDF  
and post it...

And if you can write an English paragraph or two, telling us how you  
created the document, and how you felt about SignWriting and the  
experience of writing your first dialogue...that would be great  
too...anything to encourage others to try as well -

So any ideas you have that will encourage others to use SignWriting is  
always helpful ;-)

Many thanks, Peter!

Val ;-)
