Hey thanks guys! Thanks graffix! I like the part in their video about the farmer's daughter. :)

The journalist from Discovery was a lot of fun to talk to. He learned about Prospero after picking up a copy of ROBOT magazine from his bookstore. The only problem was that he misspelled my last name in one of the captions, I figure that just my secret identity? :)

Anyhow, I learned everything about this stuff by going through Parallax's books and asking questions on the forum so it's really a community effort and I still don't know very much. I really appreciate everyone's time and help. Hopefully I'll be able to thank some more of you personally at the UPEW!
