Code: Select all

Means WHAT?
It will certainly be some nasty concept!
In fact, Richmond has also included "SEX" in its code.

Code: Select all

put (MINZ * 60) into SEX
wait SEX secs
But maybe he meant "6" in Latin!

There is an english idiom

As sure as eggs is eggs - meaning certainly no doubt - or something is 100% sure.

I don't know if Richmonds is "playing" on that and not getting my sexual connotation which I assumed he was alluding to as he used the variable SEX. - or maybe I have an overactive Hypothalamus .....

For all the non native speakers of the Queens English.

There is a sort of not said understanding that Sex can be about 3 Minutes - just about enough time to boil an egg.

Is that clear enough?

Maybe this will help

Oh and for any prudes - I am willing to post links to Java sites - you have been warned!!

Kindest Regards Lagi

Hi All,

Maybe Richmond is alluding to the "egg" as being a symbol of health, eternal life , the resurrection of Christ or the creation of the Universe.

The original "Pagan" (villager/country dweller) rituals which celebrated the coming of spring that has been "Christianized" in Christian and Christian Orthodox countries.

In Our family we have two "Easters" (they don't always coincide) - the English one where the kids get the Chocolate eggs and our Greek one when we Dye Real eggs usually red (the blood of Christ) - no time for ornate decoration like in Greece, Poland Bulgaria etc. Maybe a Cross but that is all.

Go on Richmond pray tell ....

Now back to programming ....

Regards Lagi

"In most languages the slang word for testicles is "eggs". This is true for Russian and all other Slavic languages…"

Sorry to interrupt the egg discussion, but I wouldn't use Richmond's handler. The "wait" command is blocking and will prevent any other use of LC during that time. And in some cases it will also block all background OS activity too.

We return you now to your normal discussion...
