Struck down by an illogical faith in the Law of Averages... Hey-ho, stiff upper lip, brew another pot of tea, corporal, tally-ho... >!< I've got two ideas for the Hallowe'en competition, just waiting for some Health and Safety info on UV LEDs.

You already have a Leatherman! Honestly, I thought one of yours would come up as well. It was a one-in-four chance!

There were only 4 random authors? Or are you referring to the fact he had 4 ibles, and there were 16-or-so ibles in the "pot" total?

Not only do I have a Leatherman, I also have a son who wants his own. It's his birthday tomorrow, it would have been nice to win him his own knife.
