    Re: Whats the difference?

    "What is the difference" is a rather Zen-like question, like "What is the sound of one hand clapping?". We'll probably leave it here so that Loungers can meditate on it.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday - see <post#=410329>post 410329</post#>.

    Re: What's the difference?

    Soooo sorry about this....I started a puzzle and accidentely posted it when I thought I deleted it.
    None the less....it is probably a classic unsolvable....I can be proud about the mistake.
    Any moderator out there can delete this post as it is pretty useless
    Sorry again.
    BTW -- Welcome back Hans, I trust your holiday was GREAT!!!!
    Regards,

    Re: What's the difference?

    I figured it out!

    You received three responses ahead of John Gray's (still forthcoming) post, nitpicking over your omitted apostrophe in the Subject. I still can't figure out the secret though. How did you manage it?

    Re: What's the difference?

    I see you still remember our little minor minute atom-sized fall-out a week or two ago on a certain board in a certain post! (I assume you are refering to this post?) -- Real GOOD memory Alan.
    Just to avoid corrections from John, (although I realize he is just doing his required job!!) I shall re-edit the Subject: "What's the difference?"
    It's all in a days work for the moderators...let's keep them happy... (Said in high spirits!) <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: What's the difference?

    Nope, I was referring to any post with a spelling or grammatical error. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> Now, however, with your revelation regarding the significance of only the terminal letters of words, perhaps we can drop the formality of getting the letters in the right order, altogether.

    Re: What's the difference?

    It's the "same difference".

    This was quoted in the memorial to Dr. Kenneth Iverson, creator of APL.

    The story: He is travelling in a car with colleagues. One colleague uses the phrase "It's the same difference". Second colleague pipes up "That's a meaningless comment; if they're different they can't be the same". Dr. Ken, ever the mathematician, interjects "Five minus three; four minus two; it's the same difference".
