I just thought I'd pass along several new articles about getting an Asperger diagnosis as an adult, from www.autism.about.com.  Here are the links (followed by similar links from NAS UK).

www.autism.com writes:  "If you're impatient to find out more right now, though, there are some great resources available. One of the best is a terrific online quiz, created by Dr. Simon Baron-Cohen and colleagues at Cambridge's Autism Research Centre. This Autism-Spectrum Quotient quiz isn't a diagnostic tool per se - but if you find you score especially high, it may be reason to look deeper into your concerns about AS."
