â¦this set me off laughing again. Good exercise for the diaphragm, I guess. I think itâs a great idea, BTW. If I lived closer than continental distances from your event Iâd definitely attend and buy one.
In any case, the reason I have temporarily delurked is to ask what is the most egregious real-life version number of that kidney that people have encountered? I vaguely recall finding mention of one about half that long when I was looking for something else (I think it was a Microsoft service pack when I was searching for something Mac-related), but unfortunately I didnât really register the details. The longest one I _can_ remember the details of was just something of Knuthâs (TeX perhaps?), which got longer and longer, asymptotically approaching pi, as bugs were fixed. That hardly even rates a mention, though â" not enough egregious verbiage involved.
