What should I be seeing here?
This is what I am seeing:
A blank screen, a '.' appears bottom right; the dot becomes a 'o', which in turn becomes a '~', which then moves up and left; a bunch of '~'s appear then disappear; the lone tilde return bottom right, becomes a 'o', then '.'; the end.
Is this what I should see?
Examine what is said, not who speaks.
