Chantilly is a suburb of Washington DC

For your amusement lucy.

There is also a horse track in Paris named Chantilly ;)
(or at least was in 1963).

Not strictly in Paris ..but near enough to the North of Paris to cause confusion..

Pronounced ( as near as an American will get )
shon tee yee ..

Also where the lace comes from..in the song ( The Big Bopper ) and the cream..and...

Ah ha. I thought it was an odd coincidence when I saw these two threads side by side in List New :)

I kinda think this particular lookup says "Chantilly" when it has to say something but doesn't know what to say. I mean, when the colo is in Washington (State) and the humanoid owner is in China...

There's another free lookup that uses a map. When they don't know where something is, they show the geographical center of the country. Took me ages to figure this out-- because the physical center of Canada happens to be within spitting distance of where much of my target audience lives. Northern edge of Manitoba, sure, sounds plausible. And why shouldn't Kansas be filled to the brim with servers? There's gotta be something there besides wheat fields ...

And a pony tail hangin' down
A wiggle in her walk
And a ... ::

et cetera. If this were a different forum I'd slip in a pair of music notes at beginning and end; I've got them in a range of colors for decorative purposes.

Chantilly lace and a horse race, what could be finer?!

I sent Leosghost a link to a site that I don't want to post here because it will identify me -- Leosghost knows who I am so I sent it to him so he can hold me accountable to what I'm going to say here.

Long before I became fascinated with computer algorithms I used to study running patterns of horses. Of course my classroom was the local horse race track :) -- with a copy of the daily racing form tucked under my arm, off I would go.

I learned that horses run in performance patterns of 3 races. They too run like algorithms and have peaks and valleys. It took me about 2 years to crack the pattern but once I did I participated publicly and did quite alright with it. I would just wait for the most unanticipated longshot and pounce on it when it was due. It was a blast! But I got bored with it when it was no longer a challenge.

Anyway my record is public but I don't want it known. Leosghost call call me out on it if I'm not telling the truth here.

Ahhhhh the good old days.

Nothing to "call out"..:)..SevenCubed has indeed shown me the proof, his "public record" , on a major horse racing site ( that is not his ) that he does indeed know what he is talking about..and his claim to have cracked the pattern..is no idle boast..it's fact..he cracked it :)
