short version: I finally got a hold of Wen. It sounds like we're ok for now.

more detail: The Patent Examiner assigned to out patent is very "green" (that's what Wen keeps calling him). The Examiner responded (1 month ago) to our latest response (from 2 months ago), basically saying that our new claims were completely different from the original claims (this is WRONG! what we did was totally fine, I had checked it out doing my own legal research and confirmed my understanding with Wen and the technical changes with Jay.... we should have been fine). To this Office Action response from the Examiner, Wen responded within 1 week (he's supposed to follow-up with the Examiner and the Examiner's Supervisor) soon by phone to make sure that Wen's latest response (from 3 weeks ago) addressed everything the Patent Office needed.... This is a very long process and a lot of paperwork getting shuffled around, but it still seems like it'll be worth it.
