LOL :) But without a way of calibrating a joystick, you can't use it, can you?
It'll be all over the place. :)
But to get to my point, menstruation is a _cycle_ that repeats. Hence if it's
regular, you can just bloody fit it to a sine/cosine! (pardon the pun). eg.
using gnuplot.. Personally, I would like to give the women a little more credit
to figure these things out (as it was for thousands of years) without the need
to tell them when they are suppose to have a period because it is the way it's
suppose to happen.. IMO, a woman should know their own cycle the say she should
know what 5+9 is without using a calculator.
But then maybe I'm wrong, and Debian will bloat to 1000G then to 100T and so forth
until it collapses under its own weight. A weight composed not of bit building
blocks that need to be there or specialized building blocks that make lives
of many people easier (eg. iraf) but because of a lump useless little scripts
that could be written in a few minutes (or hours if you don't know what you are
doing). But then maybe someone could also use a calculator to check how
much wear their tires take, or another one on how much their grass will grow by.
Please, let's keep the archive resonable.
