Glad to see that you're still around!

Yes, I got the scripts. Jessica has been looking into them.

To be honest, I've been busy looking for a job. Occassionally I poke at it, but it's going very
slowly, I'm sorry to say. I'm hoping to spend more time with it since I'm starting to believe
finding a programming job is going to be almost impossible.
I think Jessica is making progress, 'though.

Robert and I have been approaching the problem from opposite ends: he was
working on the LM generation, and I was looking into corpuses. I settled
on using a selection from Usenet as a good testing corpus (though I
suspect it's too small for final use):
Recently I started trying to build an LM out of it. I got the CMU Toolkit
mostly working, but couldn't actually successfully run the result. I
concluded I needed to apply your tokenizing scripts. I haven't gotten
around to actually playing with them yet, but that's next on my list of
things to do for xvoice-sphinx (which I work on about three hours a week
Hopefully late this week or early next I'll do more, and then I'll let
Jonathan and the list know how it goes.
Thanks for checking in, Jonathan!
