Author's Note Upated 5/17/2012: Due to severe hand pain, I'm using voice recognition dictation for writing, nowadays. Sometimes Nuance Dragon Dictate puts in him him him him him when I breathe, which is why you see the hmmm in the title. The good news is that ComputerWorld's Richi Jennings found the title humorous and linked to it. Hmn, now that's really funny.
Sometimes you may see in the middle of an article something like "Sit down, stop biting me," from when I scold my dog, Ewok. My hands hurt so much, I sometimes manipulate the mouse wrong and save unedited articles. Please forgive my errors, while I adapt to the new technology. Even Siri makes mistakes sometimes.
