My mistake, Roy... I presumed you were talking of Asperger's Syndrome

I hadn't heard of "Aspergia" myself either, or not that I recall anyway.
On account of "Rainman" however, one of the people from /A.O.L.M./ - he
now no longer resides there as he found GNU/Linux way over his head for
now and said he'd only come back to the newsgroup when he felt ready to
deal with all that information - had been a journalist for the New York
Times. He had a son who had a Pervasive Developmental Disorder,
presumably also Asperger's Syndrome.
This person had at one stage actually met the real, existing autistic
person after whom Dustin Hoffman's character in "Rainman" was modeled.
I believe he also sent me a link to an article on (or interview with)
It's been a long time - almost a year ago - but I think I may still have
that link, if you're interested. ;-)
