Thank you; I mind not at all. And if you or someone else could get to the point at which the voice actually is heard (in the unlikely event, as you say, that it happens like a Hollywood movie) I wouldn't at all mind. As long as we don't get disassembled. And as long as we can upload. And so on. . . .
