Fellow Yrekan Austin Sendek's quest to get "Hella" the official prefix for 1027 has scored a Googol-sized success. Err I mean a Google-sized success:
Austin also writes to inform me that there is an official petition, which can be found here.
Also I'm amused to note that the google-monster also recognizes smoots.
1027, not 1024:
It was a couple weeks ago when I stumbled across the fact that smoots were known to the Google, and I rolled across the Charles laughing when I did.
Hella. Another bright idea from the people who gave us the footpound.
May I humbly suggest syvto- and syvta instead?
There is prior art (femto-, atto-).
Nino- and nina- would also be nice but there is a problem with the letter abbreviation (lower-case n is already taken).
A fatal flaw was that they failed to have any representative posts ready to go up when the blog went live.
Had they done so, and had the content been surprisingly acceptable, the reception might have been better.
Instead we get this "Hi! Welcome to ShillBlog!" (crickets) and everyone, quite reasonably, expects the worst.
