Sounds like a great idea, and good experience as you say. Let us know how the
module works out for you after you've used it for a couple of months or so.

That's the best way to start em out, when they're young and don't know any

WHAT'S THAT!!! STOOGES ON A VACATION!! NEVER!!! And the day after I sent that
"useful" primer on the descending second formant too -- a true diy tutorial
for the masses since it required no special tools or knowledge other than the
ability to read and speak English. It may look like an easy job being a
Stooge, all that eye poking fun, but actually it's hard thankless work. Nope,
there are no holidays or vacations for a Stooge. It's a full time profession
-- a true calling!
