In case anyone is following the spreadsheet...

Resilience is currently on hiatus, as I am working fiendishly on a collaborative YA novel with Paul Melko to get it ready for him to take to the Blue Heaven novel writer's workshop.

He informs me I have 8000 words due by Friday.

(Mind you, I'm just revising, he already wrote the first draft. But still. Yeargh!)

Zzzzzz... *snarch**... what? huh? Oh, sorry, did you ask something?

Let me wipe the drool off my keyboard first...

Ok, I wasn't going to ask, because it seemed weird and intrusive, and it may yet be, but the curiosity is like a parasitic infestation.

On 2/7/07, you wrote one word.

What was the word?

You know, I wish I had an exciting answer for that, but there are only two boring answers:

1) I don't know.

2) It's net words, so I probably added some and deleted some that day.

So let's just say it was "the".

Ok, that's good. I was actually asking that question as a test. If you'd known, I would finally have proof of the theory extrapolated from susan's comment up there, that you've been replaced by a superhuman writing machine.

Which, you know. Singularity, so that's good. But on the other hand, I'd have missed the fallible Go opponent ;)

The fact that a post- and superhuman writing machine might still lose to you at Go exemplifies pretty well one of my major critiques of the notion of the Singularity.

Yeah, but you actually won our last game... Hm...
