You guys are doing it wrong. This is not about creating meaningful sentences out of books. instead it creates human seeming sentences on technical forums. For example I gave it the reply to richmond  from me (my last post which is rather long with all the re: re: ...). Out of that it created seemingly helpful text bytes, that could come from a bad english speaker trying to help resolve the graphic card problem (and some weird ones of course). Most of those sentences could be taken as a genuine human trying to help, especially if they're spread out over several mails, and buffered with other stuff.

	• if you're unlucky, it's not the card you ordered really compatible with your mac?
	• Does the keyboard light up with the old atari st, after years of service then tended to turn into paperweights.
	• I've seen machines where you turn them on, and the ill-mannered one is setup for remote admin, can you confirm that its not actually up?
	• I suggest checking: is the card that's broken, but some other part, like the Mainboard or CPU.
