Damn!  I had an AI-oriented task-solver I was just about to release after a few
more tweaks on the flux capacitor, but I guess I needn't bother because it's
probably obsolete already.  It seemed to work pretty well, but there's no
arguing with that 97% figure.

With the accelerating rate of technical progress, it's hard for all us
ahead-of-our-time geniuses to stay current.
