Gee, I sorta wish I had a consolation prize to give out.
The Techwr-l reverse-lookup-dictionary without the
Geoff Hart auto-responder is faintly less amazing
than I remembered it.
Perhaps if I made brownies?
One look at the shipping costs and I'd eat 'em all, myself.
Oh wait. I'd eat 'em all anyway. (The secret is the cream
cheese IN the batter... and then more cream cheese in the icing.)
So it looks like yer outa luck.
Apparently it's a thankless job being a reverse-lookup-dictionary.
PS: OK, crew, thanks for trying. I don't feel quite so bad now about not getting it by myself.
