    @keita interesting. Probably some very old code buried in the bowels of printf()...uh, whose printf is it?

      @jnm And then she said "Developer Ken, why don't you head up our help desk?"

        @johngordon used book store near you? We just lost one in Ithaca and have only one independent book store left...that in a town with two colleges. A sad state. We all bought shares when the last store with new books [www.buffalostreetbooks.com] said "co-op or collapse?"

          @redqueencoder its not TOO sexy but it is not as caffeinated and business like as others.

              @johngordon one of the small pleasures of an old techy: playing James Burke in your own currated junk yard of obscure connections.

                @johngordon and yet...if you select "Digital Music" in your Amazon shopping app and type "cristo" it completes as "cristofori's dream"...a wan kind of fame, watered down more than the 15 minutes Warhol promised but more enduring.

                  @jessicadennis I got a job at the card-deck submission counter for the BU computer center [IBM 360, batch, fortran...ancient] and no such thing as help desks existed by that name...so I was it. Did not increase my expectations about educated folk.

                      @hybotics my kids made me do it. so i opened an email account I never use and which has no address book or other identifying info. established FB using the email. I have not read it in for ever so I don't care what FB has divulged about it.

                        @chriskrycho any sufficiently large and long lived software project becomes a work opportunity for forensic archaeologists;)

                          @johngordon ..creep outward and grow toward some more universal representation and magically flexible rules. islands coalescing. We seek "the one" out of hopeful habitual preference for simplicity and unity, heaven knows why.

                            @johngordon The Incompleteness Theorems struck me as a demonstration that for any axiomatic system that cannot prove every proposition it can state...there will be a more generalized system [perhaps undiscovered as yet] and so the schemes..

                              just peeked at the Formual E spec [www.fiaformulae.com]...I am dumb. I can't even tell if if is all electric or hybrid...need more doc. Still, a lot of stuff in that spec would be good on the road tho maybe not economical.

                                    @joeo10 @oluseyi As in cycling...one year's hot little improved bit of gear or frame geometry winds up on decent bikes I can buy in a year or four...I will accept excesses on the track if they are pilots for something better on the street. @or @hrpanjwani
