> "increments" and "decrements" were used as VERBS!

I have been using these verbs for about 30 years, and I was astonished to
discover today that they ain't in the dictionary.

May I have a show of hands on this one? Did you know that these verbs aren't
verbs? Do only programmers increment registers?

Email (another good verb) me your response, and I'll summarize. ...RM
