Hi, Arky.  Maybe introductions are a good idea, though we've worked
some together already.  I'm Bill Cox, CTO of a small software startup
I founded ten years ago in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  My first
programming job was as a senior in high school in 1981, and I've been
hacking ever since.  I'm losing central vision and am highly motivated
to help whip GNU/Linux accessibility into shape before I have to rely
on it full time.  I'm also familiar with programming by voice, as I
could not type for three years in the late '90s.  I'm helping out on
the Vinux project, where I fix bugs in various packages, and where
many users test improvements.  I'm looking forward to working with all
the programmers who are willing to contribute.  I'm comfortable
working on pretty much any part of the system, and work well in team
