unbelieveable!
they have managed to square the circle! make a square R2D2!
they sould get a nobel prize in mathematics (if there were such a thing) for this achievement.

i was gonna rush and make one and then, to my disappointment, i saw that the letters were wrong (for me at least). :(

I didn't understand this until I had a look at the Wikipedia article. Amazing source of information (and abysmal ignorance regarding this holiday on my part :roll:).

I don't know about moving in on a permanent basis, but you are welcome to come visit here any time. That goes for dolphinius_rex and MediumRare as well.
