Plantain Ripeness

Here's another question: how do you tell if plantains are ripe?

Just regard them pretty much as you would bananas.  A properly 
ripened plantain will have a yellowish skin and a sweetish, 
banana-like aroma and will be a little soft-ish.  Even if it isn't 
fully ripenend when you use it, you'll probably still enjoy it, but 
it's pretty easy to determine the ripeness if you just think
