Background[edit]

  • This user is older than dirt
  • This user, like Dilbert/Scott Adams, can remember programming with ones and zeros "and sometimes they didn't have ones!"[2][3]
  • This editor can remember the Great Depression and World War II. The walk to school was uphill in both directions with snow up to our necks! Our clothing was too light and we had to run to keep from freezing to death. There was no television. We could only get static on the radio but we were grateful for that! Not like you namby-pambies nowdays!

Useful editing information[edit]

Q: What is the difference between "criteria" and "criterion"

A: These often-confused words belong to a family that grammarians call "metronomes," meaning "words that have the same beginning but lay eggs underwater." - Dave Barry


Please note that I have "Autopatrolled" capability. This means if you come zipping along, exceeding the speed limit on the Internet Highway, you better look out for my blue light, cause, buddy, you are going to get a ticket!

Interesting pages[edit]
