Not looking for one. Just played the game for entertainment and enlightenment. Can't believe I missed the order-of-magnitude error on the metric conversion of 0.10 inch (which should be 2.54 mm).

Never documented machinery. Rarely worked on machinery -- not since letting go of the '67 VW camper 20-odd years ago. (Relied on John Muir's awesome manual for many years to keep that bus running.)

Do read a lot, though. And tend to know a little about lots of things ("encyclopedic generalist," Asimov called it). Also tend to write sentences with implied first-person subject.

Do it even more than you start sentences with "and."

Do believe it's Friday. :-)
