@AndresF. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Programmers.SE created for exactly this kind of trivia? :-)

@AndresF. Also worth mentioning, My main site on the network is Gaming. By definition it's marginal trivia and useless information, but it has by far the highest vote and view rate of any site on the network. Just remember that our marginal trivia is a hell of a lot better than all the other stuff on the net!

@AndresF. The reason this post has done well is that it's something a lot of people will be interested in, behind a good title. It spent a day at the top of the supercollider, and made it to Hacker News etc. It may be marginal trivia, but it's good content!

@YannisRizos Sorry, I'm not a regular visitor to this site! I guess when the contest comes along I could delete this post and re-ask it. I'm sure that would be fine.

Especially when it's written (several times!) on this page!
