Posted by Arcane Gazebo at February 10, 2003 9:28 PM Spent today wading through calculations; mostly successful but I have to go back and fix a major error. Since I've been thinking in mathematics all day, that'll be the theme of this entry.

Captain! For 16 and 17, you've got four perfectly willing ones out here! You're just on the wrong coast.

Four?

Simultaneously? Hmm, if that's the case maybe I should move... :)

Re: Four?

According to the girl across the hall, we have wild lesbian orgies all the time. I still have yet to find out where we get the wild lesbians though.

Four?

Can you fix this site with WAP so I can start reading it while I'm traveling? I miss too much otherwise.

Re: Four?

"Fix" implies that something is broken. Inverse doesn't support WAP at this time, so there's nothing to fix. :)

Do you need WML-formatted pages? It is perhaps possible to set that up; I'll look into it.

Re: Four?

"Fix": "To provide or supply with (something needed or wanted). [As in] How are you fixed for money?" Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language.

I don't know whether I could read WML formatted-pages on my cell phone or not. I have been assuming the websites I access (e.g., www.continental.com) were through WAP but I may be wrong.
