The survey is available here. Questions are listed below.

Note: My regular-expression fu clearly didn't catch everything on the first pass, but if you're just trying to get a sense of what the questions are, this works. If someone else can apply sed and clean it up, I'd much appreciate it. Thanks! Mel Chua 02:02, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
