Sorry to burst your bubble but my blog just came up as "male" and I KNOW I'm not male!

Potentially interesting tool in literary forensics, but needs debugging.

Aha, checked out the comments link where other women said the same thing. Nevermind!

Oh yes, and this educated, well-read female actually spells it: algorithm!
