Oh, right, you're just a supreme human being that is allowed to be super selfish and post things that can be found JOKE EASILY on the same site you posted on, but expect others to do it for you for some reason. Sorry I didn't jump all over helping you sooner since you've contributed zero to these forums other than showing just what type of person you are. Have a nice life.

On an internet forum, having other people respond to your requests and be helpful is NOT a right. It is a privilege. And such a privilege usually must be earned with some minimum standards of courtesy.

BTW, Romes is a well-known long-time member of our forum who has written how-to articles on card counting the game of blackjack. I have had some off-forum association with Romes and he has earned my respect on many levels many times over. I am proud that he is a member of WOV forum and grateful that he occasionally takes time from his busy life and tries to help people here who are genuinely asking for help.

And I know that Romes doesn't need me to defend him, but dammit, that needed to be said.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

I know who he is, his contributions, have met him, and have several mutual acquaintances. I meant to be sarcastic, perhaps came off wrong. If Romes takes any offense to it, I apologize for that.

In this case it has no effect on my opinion, but if anything, you vouching for someone would lower my opinion of said person because of your “my shit don’t stink” way of carrying yourself. Go find a double amputee to vouch for. Good day or week or whatever comes.

I am married, so every day of my life I have someone who reminds me how un-special I am! Duly noted that you have an unfavorable opinion of me and no hard feelings on my part.

Uh, "thank-you" for raising the bar on the level of discourse here ?

Did you read your post and count to ten before posting ?

Can everyone please relax, yes sending the calculator was an answer. One could also have said standing on the soft 17 is better. Either way let's all be kind to each other, one never knows what might be going on with someone else...

I voted yes... more fun.

Appreciate the kinds words Gordon. I wasn't too miffed, just the 1,000,000th person to think the world, and subsequently this forum, revolved around them =).
