comment What is a reasonable amount of time to spend writing a product overview?
I think this is a Your Mileage May Vary question. Some people are inherently very fast or slow writers, people have different levels of experience and skill, equipment has varying levels of difficulty (as you pointed out). I don't think there's any right answer to this.

comment Seeking information regarding the use of a period between the day, month, and year formatting
It's in a few parts of Europe and in Britain as well. In Italy I've seen day, month as Roman numeral, year, so there's no confusion with the American system: 10.V.14.

@what If your normal speech sounds like you always have your nostrils clamped up, you may want to make an appointment with an ENT specialist. What you should be hearing is exactly what you spelled out in your answer above.

So... you're just sending a manuscript cold in the hopes that someone will read it?
