Maverick Woo sent me an email to let me know that Google does roman numeral arithmetic.
I can’t help but imagine the discussion between between the Google engineer and his boss:
- (Engineer) Hi boss! I plan a new feature for our search engine… roman numeral arithmetic!
- (Harvard MBA) What a great idea! (Thinking to himself: I need to replace this guy.)
As a basis for comparison, it seems that Yahoo! does not have this feature.
Beside my blog’s captcha, where else do you ever use roman numerals?
