22623772 spells...

The intuitive text setting on my mobile phone is one of the wonders of the modern world.

It saves me a lot of time, notwithstanding that it often takes longer to text someone than just call them. Especially when you're like me and insist on sentences, punctuation and coherency.

But is also really intuitive.

When I press the keys that would spell "Canberra", just before I get to the last letter, the result is "Cancers". Or, if I continue and complete the key-pressing, it says "Cancersa".

Which is like, totally my phone saying to me "Canberra is like cancers, eh?"

How does it know how I feel about Stinktown (TM - patent pending)?

Now that's intuition.

Snappy comebacks, eh?

So, Stinktown would be 784658696?

I know you're a nerd, Georg, but could you please translate that to English?

I got the RSS feed from your blog (as the link isn't on the site I guessed it was http://comicstriphero.blogspot.com/atom.xml because all blogspot ones are in that format and I subsribed to it in my newsreader (NetNewsWire) and now every time you put up a new post I will now without having to visit the site. Simple!

Yes, I am simple, I don't need you to tell me that.

So I guess you'll never miss a single gripping installment...
