Okay, I can take the hint. ;-)

Actually, I was going to offer to write some stuff, but I thought
that maybe we were trying to keep it all in CFAI and that's your
(Eliezer's_ project. But, if that's not a concern, I'll write away
because I have the time (hey, it's summer vacation and college
doesn't start until late August) and a Web page to which to post it
all. Besides, if I write some stuff, it will have my own nice spin
on things. :-)

Also, in case anyone was wondering, Asimov now lives in my closet
(and you thought he was dead) and writes my papers for me for school.
Over the summer, though, I'm willing to loan him out to the highest
bidder. ;-P
