4.5.0 Parrot "Buff-faced Pygmy Parrot" Released!

In honor of M0: "The tiny bird, which is not much bigger than an adult
person's thumb, is smaller than some of the insects with which it shares the
forest. On average, buff-faced pygmy parrots (Micropsitta pusio) stand less than 9cm tall and weigh 11.5g (0.41oz)" --BBC Earth News.

4.4.0 Parrot "Banana Fanna Fo Ferret" Released!

Its existence guarantees nothing in itself, and the catalytic or
Promethean moment only occurs when one individual is prepared to cease being
the passive listener to such a voice and to become instead is spokesman, or
representative.

But it's important to remember the many dreary years when the prospect of
victory appeared quite unattainable. On every day of those years, the "as if"
pose had to be kept up, until its cumulative effect could be felt.

Parrot 4.2.0 "Ornithopter" Released!

"Technology, in common with many other activities, tends toward avoidance of
risks by investors. Uncertainty is ruled out if possible. Capital investment
follows this rule, since people generally prefer the predictable. Few recognize
how destructive this can be, how it imposes severe limits on variability and
thus makes whole populations fatally vulnerable to the shocking ways our
universe can throw the dice."

Parrot 4.0.0 "Hyperstasis" Released!

At one extreme, it is possible to approach the subject on a high mathematical
epsilon-delta level, which generally results in many undergraduate students not
knowing what's going on. At the other extreme, it is possible to wave away all
the subtleties until neither the student nor the teacher knows what's going on.

Engineers
