Okay, it's Friday afternoon, and I've had a rough couple weeks. John Dvorak,
writing in the Dec. 3/02 issue of PC Magazine: "When this device was first
introduced, I was skeptical. I thought it was another false start in the
neverending, weird hope that within our lifetime, we could actually make a
robot that could potentially turn on us humans and kill us. Mankind will
have accomplished something when that day comes."

If you're doing the documentation on this product, you have my sympathy. And
I can't wait to see your questions to techwr-l on how to phrase the warning
messages, your legal liability, the user interface, dealing with the
developers, ... <g>
