It's you Rob.
Well usually when a female asks a question, she is smothered with replies/answers. Especially in this environment full of geeks desparate to talk to a girl of any shape, form or size. I am sure that if she posts one more time that she can't solve it, someone will reply with the actual code.

Of course, 90% of "girls" on the internet are actually men.

actually it isnt true.
in a recent survey done on the internet the following conclusions were made:
50% of the "girls" are actually men.
20% of the "men" are actually girls.
10% of the "girls" who are actually men are gay men.
2.2% of the "men" who are actually girls are Klingons.
0.01% of the klingons are star trek fans pretending to be klingons.

Did you know that 82.3% of all statistics are made up on the spot?

Yes, but 87% of all respondants indicated that they believe statistics.

But among people with an IT background, that figure drops to 56.9%.

However, the most recent survey has found that among the same group of people that figure actually rises to 57.01% during the third week of every other month! Fascinating.

Also, and this is scientificaly proven, the vast majority of people beleive that if it is printed it must be true or if it is on the internet is must be true.

And, I'm just replying because Jessica posted in here and she is female - of course, according to Roy there is a 50% chance that she is really a guy, but there is also a 20% chance that I'm really a girl, combine that with all the other percentages mentioned and I guess there is a pretty fair chance that I am a gay, klingon female, who likes Star Trek. Or maybe I'm Jessica ...
I'm confused now... gonna go lay down...

I just did a home survey and I found that 100% of respondants agreed. This poll has a sampling error of +/- 100%.

90% of the people who have posted messages here are the same person. Possibly it could be this Paul Wheaton feller wot runs this site trying to make it look popular . Let me join the other's in congratulating you Rob. That was a very clever thing you did. If I may be permitted to say so, I think you are a genius.
