[OT] a while ago, I mentioned (on another list) that all real programmers   
have three extra fingers on each hand. (Business opportunity: Halloween   
costume makers could put out gloves...) There's an icon somewhere in my   
machine that's a hand with seven fingers and a thumb; unexpected location. 

Reply was that that was not true at all. Four fingers are good enough for   
all hex digits (pun?) and the thumb is for digit parity.
