Sure, you know your ABC's, but how well do you know Unicode? Its special characters are used in i18n applications, and are commonly seen on college campuses, where the greek alphabet (αβΓΔ) seems to pop up everywhere. Now, thanks to some clever substitution, it can even be used to uʍop ǝpısdn ǝʇıɹʍ!

Apparently Unicode also facilitates synchronicity.

Don;t understand the allure of this - it's not even worth one post, let alone a double!

Or perhaps I'm just upset that it displays as a series of empty squares on my PC?

There is nothing wrong with your monitor. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur, or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to ... metaslashdiggdotfilter.

So we should be celebrating a post that isn't straight off of Arts & Letters Daily?

Wow, a rare breed of double post: photo finish + second post better than the first. I vote for this one to stand.

And as always, I vote for the haters to suck it.
