    != is not a lol-emoticon type inequality sign. It's fairly standard and should be recognizable to anyone that has taken a basic programming class in high school or college.

    Well then I must be an ijit because I never took either. It's just easier if people would just type out what they are trying to say.

    Well even if you didn't take it, it's pretty straight forward. It's not a stretch for the mind to understand that != means not equal, especially given the context of the post.

    ^None of this is relevant, let's get back on topic. I don't think it's straight forward in the least. ! makes me think of factorials or expression, so why on earth would it suddenly mean "not"?

    For the record, I usually see =/= to indicate "not equal to" on the internet, as one would draw an equal sign with a slash through it. Everybody needs to be a little more open minded and stop getting so defensive!

    Er yeah, I'm 35 and I don't have my IT geek to creative arts dictionary out. Sorry. Back to topic.

    Like I said, just say 20 Hail Groks and eat a steak. Getting back on track is all you can do.

    I always get achy and grumpy after eating wheat. Pain is a good motivator to avoid the cause. Grain is a carb but it is a BAD carb. Root veggies are good carbs.

    Well, I must have been sick that day the new math rule was covered. I missed it, but recognized the post as so over-the-top as to elevate it to joke status. Or were you just quoting some ADA?

    So did the same thing a few weeks ago, Mike. I had two beers and an ice cream on a Friday night awhile back, and I paid for it for three days (I am a 5'2" girl, so that's a lot of carbs for a small body.) I had all your symptoms, plus stomach upset and diarrhea. Ugh....

    Back on the wagon!
