The main issue I'm having with it is that's not how they go about informing next of kin...


The text of the letter is taken largely from this one from 1917 and this one from 1918 (sixth post down).

Sure, maybe I should check these things more often, but someone could've told me :mrgreen:

Turns out the checksum for #2660 was wrong, so it was returning 404. All sorted.

So ln(2π) would be just irrational sex. It goes on for a very long time, and you're always getting something new (i.e., no repeating decimals).

It probably does, but before it loads images. So you get moved some when the images load and make some posts larger.
