    I think I'm doing this right...anyway... I've been wanting to take an ASL class for ages, but they didn't offer any in my area. Finally they are offering one, so I signed up, although this class is more SEE/PSE. I'm not too thrilled, but I'm going to stick with it. I'm already noticing a few of the signs are different (whether they're different completely, or we're using an outdated/different region sign, I'm not sure), such as "brother" and "sister," so this will be a challenge. My question is this: If I get through this class, am I paddling backwards, learning-wise? I don't mean to offend ANYONE, but I've been told over and over to not bother learning SEE/PSE and to stick to ASL, but...I don't really have an option right now, and honestly, I'm happy to be doing any signing at all. I know basic ASL grammar, so I'm pretty confident in my ability to transition once I'm out of the class and start dropping the extra SEE words I used (like "the" "is"), and fixing my grammar to be more ASL-like. Was just wondering everyone's opinion.

    Not sure where to ask for people to post a new sign, so I'm asking here. In math, does anyone have a sign for RISE and RUN (as in, the slope of a line is equal to the RISE over the RUN)?

    I could not find a good place to start a topic. I wanted to mention the Free / Open Source Software (FOSS) "Universal Subtitles" project which makes it easy to caption videos in multiple languages. See: http://universalsubtitles.org/en/

    When I see a new concept, I try to identify a verb action for the concept - it helps in usage, as well as in deriving new signs from the verb sign. For example, COMPILE/COMPILER
