Radical! I'll have to see if I can make it over to Seattle, but this should be quite a treat.

The JFP event is in February - lets hope the snow melts by then. :-)

Thanks for correcting me, Sii. Having just recently heard about the upcoming lecture, I eagerly misread its date as being Wednesday of this week instead of a Wednesday in the middle of next month. So much for the long ago when I worked as a proofreader.

I once drove through a freak April snowstorm going up
from Seattle to Vancouver, but then I heard when that
happens in Everett it's normal.

You're on this page... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_alphabet scroll down to the "obsolete" section ;-)

Hey, you guys did take up my keyboard layout,
didn't you?! :-) You and the Cupertino boys too.
That falls under my definition of "legacy"...

BTW, JF: See you in SoCal in February too, right?
Fingers crossed for an earthquake-free previous month. ;-)
