This is PPC only! I say this because it will not operate on my MacBook Pro. Mac OS 10.5.6

on my powerbook g4, Robbie keeps telling me:

"SORRY, I do not understand anything you say ...",
which is very annoying at the very beginning of a new experience.

Robbie's answer to
"Hi!"
is a 28-words explanation about ...

... HOW he COULD NOT understand longer sentences (thanks to developer's tolerance for impaired devices).
