So much of a "sort of" that you wouldn't mind going for a round of such "sort of" now?

Yeah, I didn't think so.

True, but the slice happens at 8 days... this prick(ish) happens--in CV's case--at like 74  ;D

Don't tell me that.

I hope to be entering my 13th prime at that age.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
