The derivative of x is 1.

There's one on the spot in the road where Kennedy was assassinated. I saw a pic this evening of my brother in law standing on it.

I wondered how often they have to repaint it.

I miss being able to get vertical colums of x to be spaced as close together as horizontal rows of x, so we could actually create interesting artwork out of various cmbinations of x.

LT, press shift+enter when you do a carriage return and you will only skip one line instead of two.

Thanks for the tip, CF!

Unfortunately, even though Shift-Enter indeed created single line spaces, they turned into the usual double space upon posting. Or, on second thought, maybe 1.5 space. Why?

Not only that... I find the new fedora desktop kind of stupid (as in.... there is none). XFCE is like old fedora, and that's why I put that option on one of our laptops.

Plus... there's plain old:

I'm running Voyager Linux on my main desktop.   It's a re-spin of Xubuntu but with a much prettier XFCE desktop.   Also run the XFCE version of Linux Mint Debian Edition on my old Thinkpad laptop.

There was a Firesign Theatre track, in which they were doing a an for a fictional horror movie called THE STRAIGHT PEOPLE-note, this was done in 1969, and in their parlance "straight" meant "non-hippie".  The outro for the ad was "this movie is rated 'X-"the unknown'. Positively no one admitted".
