### Re: Magrathean diacritics

It seems wrong to include your "u", as all the other terms are logarithmic, or kind of logarithmic, but "u" is linear. So relative to all the other terms, "u" is exponential. "u" is scaled to one prime 5 for every 1000 difference in the ratio (the 1:1001 "perfect" 71st scores exactly 5.000 on the "...

### Re: Notation for George Secor's High-Tolerance Temperament

A fourth message defining the fifth itself and noting a number of commas of the temperament appears here , which is linked to from the sagittal.org homepage. In order for this temperament's commas to have a 12edo keyspan of zero, 8:11 has to be an augmented—not perfect—fourth (:(|): = P1; :/|\: = A1...

If we put a nickel in a jar every time one of us edited each other's post instead of quoting it, we'd be... well, we'd probably have about a 7C by now. ...You mean, like, 240edo nickels?

There's something a bit fishy about it, I think: the repetition of the symbols and for discontinuous capture zones. I don't know what to make of it.
And also , , , and

I don't either. Now we have capture zones with gaps in them. Great.

### Re: Magrathean diacritics

[Tables elided] Something tells me that 1/(limit - x) - 1/limit isn't a good fit for some of these... Thanks for making those tables. I agree, it looks useless when applied to the 3-exponent. But not so bad on the error. I could be wrong, but I think @volleo6144 might have been saying that if we cr...

This is the first time I ever noticed someone using the "Post Icon" feature. I still haven't used the signature feature either.
It also seems like the post icons are only available in some boards (the two in "Just for fun"), for some reason.

### Re: Emoji-ttal

This happens on iOS when a font (such as Bravura) using specific code points in the U+E000..U+F8FF range fails to load. iOS first had emoji in 2.2, a year or so before Unicode officially added them. They were mapped to "Private Use Area" (6400 code points at U+E000..U+F8FF; there's also supplemental...
