Yeah, I even mailed Christine Ecker to see if there was any way I could get scanned in advance of it becoming generally available but didn't get any kind of reply. I hate being ignored by email.

My own assessment wasn't 100% conclusive simply because I had no 'objective informant' to provide a developmental history. For others in the same position as me, a test like this could be useful. I don't think my employer will be too convinced by "consistent with aspergers" and "working diagnosis".
