Don't bother with the datasheet. Not only is it irritatingly heavy with
graphics, it also fails to give any other insight (except for maybe a
very indirect one) as to how it works. That's a real boderation.
Another heads up: mai pen rai is not my quote; it's a rather old Thai
idiom that means 'No worries' or 'Take it easy', more or less. I wish to
preempt its attribution to me. Appending a novelly ironic vocative
clause, was, however, my innovation.
It is also worthy of note: comical substitution of the palato-alveolar
approximant 'American r' with its close alveolar counterpart 'l' is
largely a phenomenon of two Altaic languages, Japanese and Korean, and
even then varies. For instance, the proprietor of Teppan restaurant does
this. My good friend Dr. C. M. Lee does not; his English is nearly
perfect. It is a mistake to apply them to anything else, and makes one
look silly. (Unless, and I don't know this one, Finns, Turks, and
Mongols do the same thing. Could be!)
