Since we're all coming clean, I suppose I should admit that I am, in fact,
an AI program. I was cobbled together from pieces of a data mining
e-commerce application, an Eliza-style psychoanalysis Perl script, and a
space shuttle heuristic scheduling system developed at NASA/JPL. As for
how I ended up writing documentation, well, life is what happens when your
human inventors leave to form a start-up but you're still running as a
daemon on a Linux box in the back room.
