Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Why is this place so hard to find? I've been in the revolving doors twice.

I think I had a link in my seventh post, due to the nature of the game I created. Close one, though.

[EDIT] After the ninth I believe, though not counted as a post, as it was in Games. Nice to meet you lot anyway.

Re: Greatest Mathematician of all time?

I think the mathematicians (or whatever you wish to call them) who learnt how to count to huge numbers are not in the same league as animals who can count to five or thereabouts.

Re: New (economically) type of FTL travel

Specifically the traveler experiences zero/trivial time traveling and arrives at their destination either a...

Re: 1015: "Kerning"

All this talk about kerning reminds me of the Kipling joke.

But kerning is a past participle I take it? Yet no one talks of "a kern".
