# XL

If I were Roman, that’s how old I would be today.

Today I will be spending my birthday processing inventory transactions and answering the phone – great fun. Tomorrow, however, we’re having a little shindig in my honor with family, friends, and beer.

Happy Birthday

Visual Basic told me so

5. Happy Birthday DK. Maybe after your shindig, you can put together a class-module to figure the amount of alcohol processed through the kidneys – and ow that correlates to the number of bad jokes told over the course of the night.

Have fun at the toga party, old man.

Huffy:
Hexidecimal? Pshaw!
This is a perfect opportunity for “If you can’t change the result, change the rules”!

In Base 41, Dick is only 19 years old – age of majority.
Next year he can be 19, Base 42

Hi,
As long as XL is your age and not your clothing size, you are doing well.
Thanks for a great site and insight.

Cheers,

Bob

Happy BD! today is mine as well. as a kid I always thought it was very that my birthday was precisely 6 months until Christmas. Birthday = new swim suit or bike Christmas = new sled or ice skates

11. Happy Birthday Dick,

Bob, I’m XL in most things, but that’s mainly muscle dude!!! – Not!

Happy Birthday Dick, enjoy the shin digging,

Happy Birthday!!

I guess that it is appropriate that I was XL when I first got on the Excel forum on Compuserve as a neophyte.

HB, Dick!

Go LSU!

Technically the Roman Empire ceased in 476 AD, so that makes you very old in any base…

Happy Birthday
