After finding a copy of The Devil's DP Dictionary in my father's library, I became hooked. I've read it several times, and I keep laughing as if it were the first. (And I had to do some research to understand it all - I'm not an engineer - my father is -, and I was one year old when the book was published.) If the text above is any indication, you have definitely kept you edge after all these years. Thank you!

Fine work Stan. I conceive that you were at the wrong college, and a hundred and fifty years too late to boot. Wordsworth might have enjoyed your company, if not for your perhaps better way with the language than his. But then there is base 15. That's not cricket. Hardy perhaps (pardon the chronological whiplash), but Wordsworth could not have played in that game.
