a dread disease
And one of the byproducts of this frenetic burst of activity is a relatively new discovery ... debugging by voice *grin*. Since I'm doing linguistics work (sorta), it's sometimes easier/faster/nicer to have output read out rather than reading it off the screen. Since this toy I'm building requires voice support anyway, I'm actually saving myself work... or maybe I'm just doing it because it seems cool to have a robotic voice droning things at me all the time. Weirdly enough, this article describes part of what I'm doing. It's apparently quite the hot topic among research folk. Or so I'd imagine, at any rate.
