I told you the sponger would want the book SC! He's shameless (hmm reminds me of another thread).

Really 1sf (troll), Mike means the "MANDRIVA || DIE" part of your sig, or are you being deliberately thick? I don't know what happens if you pipe something twice, but I expect it ought to get there in half the time. :)

Erm, that a Boolean OR, not a pipepipe Rhakios - it means MANDRIVA or DIE. Quick, someone nick 1sf (troll)'s copy of Mandriva :lol:

Wouldn't a native of Bool be a Boolan or Boolian? :D

Not being from the planet Bool, I did not want to contradict whatever they might choose to call themselves. Perhaps it's even planet Boole, I just don't know :?
:D :D

[Oh dear, I now forsee a thread in which it is debated whether Boole should be pronounced to rhyme with pool, or goolie :shock: ]

pool obviosly, yes i meant "or" as in
Code: Select all
 open(MANDRIVA, "mandriva") || die "cannot open $!\n";

so i suppose i could have wrote MANDRIVA || die but i didn't, i thought i might be having another sig edited for using pop lyrics :roll:

I only post scratchs, so far ... :)

But if you mean the seminar ... i fear that will have to be a <cough> somewhat on going observation for a while yet ... :D

I think it may be along the lines of 'ball', as in ball+e+an. Now you never know, someone may have been hanging out for that. But an even more interesting question would be, why ... A trick question though. :)

Boole could never rhyme with goolie, although Boolie could :)

But if you're referring to the pronunciation of the oo, they pronounce them the same in pool and goolie round here :(

I think you are forgetting our Continental European friends, who often pronounce the "e" on the end of words.

Well, at least with a die, you would have a 1 in 6 chance of getting the result you were aiming for. :P

Well done on losing 6 lbs, you'll find you don't lose stones if you sew up the holes in your pockets.
Or did you lose your other two stones? In which case, you should have been wearing tighter underpants. :lol:
