Error’d: Opera version numbers

A new version of Opera, Opera 90.2, is available. Would you like to upgrade now?

My word! What an enormous leap in version numbers Opera seems to have done!

It seems no time at all since I upgraded from Opera 8 to Opera 9, and then not that long ago I opened Opera to discover this dialog box, inviting me to upgrade … to version 90.2!!

A new version of Opera, Opera 90.2, is available. Would you like to upgrade now?

I somehow suspect that something slipped through the error-checking stage at Opera Towers.

Made-up name

Close-up of book spine, Scientific Tables by Geigy.

When my nephew Benjamin was learning to speak he couldn’t pronounce my name (Gareth) properly. Instead he used to call me “Geigy” (pronounced Guy-ghee).

While I was lurking in some corner of the University a couple of months ago I came across this book: Geigy Scientific Tables, Seventh Edition.

Yay! It’s my nephew’s made-up name for me. I’m famous … sort of.
