1. consult your electronic I Ching calculator
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 03:34 PM by MrCoffee
it's a Douglas Adams/Dirk Gently reference...

Dirk bought an electronic I Ching calculator that did beautiful math so long as the answer was less than 4. for all problems with answers > 4, the answer was "a suffusion of yellow"


at least, that's why i use it. anyone else who uses it is ripping me off.

7. dingbat definition
A dingbat is an ornament or spacer used in typesetting, sometimes more formally known as a "printer's ornament". The term supposedly originated as onomatopoeia in old style metal-type print shops, where extra space around text or illustrations would be filled by "ding"ing an ornament into the space then "bat"ing tight to be ready for inking.

Yup, sounds like our Robb.
