Very nice. Thanks Ken! Josh is really great about helping people.
Nice to see it is appreciated.

Tweak it 'til it breaks, then learn how to fix it.

Great phone, Josh.  Hope Ken is recovering well--the Reglue blog hasn't been updated in a while, I keep checking to see if he's posted anything recently.
EDIT:  Just checked again and see he has posted something recently but had to take it down temporarily.  I'll check back.

I'm doing ok. Trying to adapt without the ability to speak, but it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. We've released an alpha for the front end for MaryTTS, But I see that you know that. You can pass that along if you want. Other than that, I'm doing ok.

That's great to hear. I admire Ken very much and try to contribute to Reglue when I can--wish it could be more often.
