From the Jargon File:
Some four years ago, I wrote in Fun with Markov chains about T9 collisions (the fact that predictive text input on mobile phones sometimes turns out interesting alternatives).
Last night I was contacted by someone who'd found the original post and was looking for a T9 collision translation (i.e. translating a T9 pair in language 1 to a T9 pair in language 2, trying to maintain the meaning).
That's still in progress, as you can imagine. I did find a nice new (half-)Dutch pair, though: godfather = infecties :-)
My company sent out an e-mail newsletter today, and I was just taking a quick peek at the bounces and out-of-office messages.
One stood out:
Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange Server has matched a filter.
Filter name: "KEYWORD= no_go: relationship"
I guess "relationship" features relatively frequently in spam, but bouncing an email just because the word appears seems a bit blunt to me.
When Aphex Twin's "Nanou 2" just came up on my playlist, I decided to Google it, hoping for some "if you like X, you'll also like Y" serendipity.
No such luck, but one of the first hits read:
Unfortunately the lyrics of Nanou 2 performed by Aphex Twin are missing.
Surprising, that. (And if that doesn't make sense to you, check it out. I'm not a big Aphex fan, but this is beautiful.)
