Irish attorney specialising in intellectual property law (fl. 1951 – 2007)
[My first edit on the English Wikipedia was to our article on the Star Alliance at 10:28hrs GMT, 27 May 2006 while in one of their airline lounges. Before that I'd (anonymously) corrected a few spelling mistakes and such like. I also edit other Wiki's.] contribcounter
The 'Political Compass' certified me as: Economic Left/Right: -3.75,
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.03
which, I understand, placed me just to the economic right of Nelson Mandela and as considerably more authoritarian than the Dalai Lama in 2007...
States I NEVER visited in the United States:- Alaska;
Provinces and Territories I NEVER visited in Canada:- Nunuvut;
Nations I NEVER visited in Europe: Cyprus, Iceland, Malta;
I have also been fortunate enough to visit all ASEAN members, Africa and many of the Pacific Island nations; guess I'll never get to visit South America or Antarctica now...

A diagram of vernier calipers, a device used to measure the distance between two opposite sides of an object, showing the individual parts:
Here the metric scale shows a distance of 2.475 cm between the jaw faces: the 0 mark on the vernier is between 2.4 and 2.5, and the 7.5 mark is the one best aligned with a mark on the main scale. Similarly, the inch scale shows (155/)/16, or 125/128, of an inch.
