    Re: Post Race!

    What does "val" mean in French? I know what "beau" means, but not sure on "val" or even if it means anything or if its just a made up word or someone's name.

    For example, the CSA President's (Jefferson Davis) home, Beauvoir is named for the beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. Just wondering if Beauval is something similar (preferably with a less racist past).

    Val is a other name for "vallée" (valley or vale)

    And I'm glad the highlight tag still works since I'm the one that added it to the forum many, many....many years ago. (but that is simply a little CSS/HTML).

    Yeah, that kind of highlighting still works. I never used the other kind, so I don't miss it any.

    I'd like to think that val actually translates to "function that converts an object to a numeric value" so that it'd mean: beautiful function that converts an object to a numeric value

    I was expecting that pun from Shaggy not you you cut him the grass underfoot (french expression) I think the corresponding English expression is "the rug pulled out from under him"

    What will you do with it? I have a couple degrees. I think my BS is around here somewhere (most of you assume my BS is around whenever I am, but that's not always true). As for my MS...I'm really not sure whether or not I ever got any physical object, or what became of it.

    The college wanted $15 to send me my BS degree. $15 was a lot of money to me back then so I never got it. Think I bought beer instead.

    I stopped buying books in my sophomore year because I realized I could buy a LOT of pizza for that money. No good professor in science taught from the books anyways. The books were just there as a supplementary resource...that gouged you good and proper.

    The forum has new owners? Does that mean I can post my off-color and somewhat less than G-rated but still side-splittingly hilarious humor without getting my posts deleted? Or is that still too much to ask?
