Hi, I'm working on Listing 15.3 in TextWrangler (running in Terminal) on OS X 10.6.6. It seems that what you intended to happen was that "How" would be printed immediately, then two seconds later, "are" would be printed, then two seconds later, "you" would be printed, then two seconds later "today?" would be printed. The problem is that if I run the listing exactly as you wrote it, it simply waits 6 seconds and prints "How are you today?". I've discovered this is because of the commas- if I take out the three commas and run the listing, it prints as it should, three seconds between each word.

However, when I take out the commas, it prints all the words on separate lines. I assume what you meant with the commas was to have all the words print on the same lines, but unfortunately this seems to add all the "sleep" functions together too.
