There's so much we could get done if you could just listen to some simple requests and ... take care, of business ... i guarantee you i'd never ask you to do anything you don't know how to do; i'd never ask you to make me coffee ... oh, okay, i see, yes, i'll never call you "darlin'" again ...

OMG, no ! i am not asking you to appear as Clippy, or any other too cutsie icon.!

Like ... i'm using Visual Studio, and i just whisper 'stop,' and the current app stops running; i say 'rebuild,' and it rebuilds the solution; and, a bit fancier request: 'insert datetime.' Maybe one-day we could get into really fancy stuff, like 'insert snippet named propertytemplate3.'

Or, like ... i'm using PhotoShop, and i just whisper 'rotate,' and the current selected layer shows the little hickeys that let me do rotation, as well as scaling; i say 'save as png,' and it saves a copy as a .png file.

And, wow: if you'd talk to me, ask me for whatever you need to help me get things done ... if i could mutter sweet nothins' to you like: 'implement IPropertyChanging;' and, you could respond with asking me: 'where?' ... to which, i might say: 'public Properties in the current document.'

We could have a whole repertoire of little routines where we went back and forth ... winnowing down the possibilities with each step.

Any confusion, we could just backtrack; i hope you won't feel patronized if i do mention you've got a thang about ambiguity, and i do tend to get slacky as my imagination rotates faster than my logic. i hope this is as good for you as it is for me !

i know this is a lot to ask, and i don't want you to go out of your way to help me just because my old eyes are getting weaker. i think you'd be appreciated by multitudes, not just past-their-use-by-date geeks. And, what a hero/heroine you'd be to the hordes of gen-x/y/z who can't type well, and have the attention span of gnats.
