Sorry :(

Hello folks,

This is not a question – it’s an apology for not posting for the last few days. I’ve been swamped with work, and Devadutta’s going through some big life changes at the moment :)

We’ll get right back to posting starting tomorrow, and I’ll be posting multiple questions per day to make sure we catch up.

Thanks so much for your patience!

In the meantime, if you would like to donate time to the recovery efforts, we would like a few questions from you guys/girls! Please send them in to boiledbeans@gmail.com if you’ve got something for us.

Guest question from Manish Achuth

  1. Identify the man.
  2. He was an assistant to someone. Who?
  3. And what first does this “Movie” have?

In the wake of all the SOPA/PIPA (yeno papa) talk going around, this does seem fairly relevant :)

(This question will be modded on the 24th)

Ok, I’ll level with you – we’re desperately in need of guest questions :| Send in anything you’ve got! boiledbeans@gmail.com

Veery borderline geeky. What special achievement connects:

  1. Colby Nolan
  2. George/Chris Jackson
  3. Henrietta/Ben Goldacre
  4. Kitty O’Malley
  5. Sassafrass Herbert
  6. Sonny/John Licciardello

This is, sadly, not an exhaustive list at all. There are many more.

(1) was the first and, believe it or not, the paper it was published in was rejected! The technique did take hold though and grew to become very popular. (2) was the first of a body part.

What technique?

The technique goes by multiple names – we’ll be liberal with the points.

Plaintext question. Obviously, rampant googling might occur, but then again we trust you to not do it, so please don’t :P

“Formal” syntax of what?

       Accept-Additions = "Accept-Additions" ":"
                          #( addition-range [ accept-params ] )

        addition-type   = ( "*"
                          | milk-type
                          | syrup-type
                          | sweetener-type
                          | spice-type
                          | alcohol-type
                          ) *( ";" parameter )
        milk-type       = ( "Cream" | "Half-and-half" | "Whole-milk"
                          | "Part-Skim" | "Skim" | "Non-Dairy" )
        syrup-type      = ( "Vanilla" | "Almond" | "Raspberry"
                          | "Chocolate" )
        alcohol-type    = ( "Whisky" | "Rum" | "Kahlua" | "Aquavit" )
