That's where speech-to-text software comes in...I suppose if he wanted to read something, he could print the page out, and scan it with optical character recognition, get it into a text file, and use text-to-speech on it...But that's for another topic.

One time I had a Jack and coke and it had a lime in it, And I saw that the lime was floating. That's good news man. Next time I'm on a boat and it capsizes, I'll reach for a lime... I'll be water skiing without a life preserver and people'll say 'What the hell?' and I'll pull out a lime...and a lemon too. I'm saved by the buoyancy of citrus.

Although there is Mcrosoft Sam. Good luck on that.

They're books about games, which really makes me worried about my one-tracked mind. :P

Must I say that Elite Beat Agents was nothing special. I played in Best Buy the other day. It was sorta fun, but not really amazing.

Okay I just realized that the 15th has come and gone and I haven't chosen the winners yet! :) So right now I'll make a list of everyone who's entered so far, then send an email to people who have lots of posts on the forum but haven't entered yet to give them a chance to enter. Then in a couple days I'll choose the winners. :)

I kind of forgot about DGF (due to my busy schedual) after not posting for a while...
but then I got MZ's e-mail and was like "Oh yeah! The internet!"
I need to start posting again...sheesh.
I guess I'll try out for this contest then....?
