Very "Rocky Horror Picture Show" methinks!
Looking forward to seeing you in your Spandex in Edinburgh :)

Not many people are going to believe this, but, here goes:
I am currently working on a way to type classical Sanskrit documents
cross-platform; this involves 4 things (which, luckily I possess):
1. A working knowledge of Devanagari (the dominant syllabic-alphabetic
writing system used for Sanskrit).
2. A moderate knowledge of Runtime Revolution.
3. Knowledge of unicode fonts and how they are made.
4. Bordering certifiable lunacy.
Yesterday I programmed for 9 hours flat (see point #4); which didn't
just involve the donkey-work of repetitive code, but thinking my way
through a tricky logical labyrinth.
That was after teaching EFL kids all day!
I went to bed and DREAMT in Revolution all night!!!
