The Dicer is Coming!
This August 7th is a very significant anniversary for me in regards to this site. In honor of the occasion, on that date I shall post in this thread the first-ever dicer on this site. What is a dicer, you ask? You shall see.

PS: It has nothing to do with infomercial cutlery. :)

Durnit, that was gonna be my guess! :mad:

And now I want to see what a chopped-up mix of fivers could look like. :(

Chancellor Valium 07-23-2007 09:43 PM

Is it like a Dyson Die? You roll it, and it covers up a star, kinda-thing?

Nate the Great 07-24-2007 02:09 AM

Okay, here's a hint: The word dicer, like so many of my fiver-related terms, gets the "er" from the fact that it's...well...fiver-related. :)

The "di" comes from one word, and the "c" from another.

NAHTMMM 07-24-2007 04:02 AM

Oh, well then.

This ought to be good. :D Never really thought about it, but there must be some pretty bizarre versions of 5MV in other dimensions . . . .

I was kinda hoping that there'd be less interest about my newest fiver vocab word of the day, and a little more wonderment about what it means, and what the significance of August 7th could be.

NAHTMMM 07-24-2007 04:02 PM

I could probably guess some of it, but I figure you'll tell us when the time comes. ;)

PointyHairedJedi 07-25-2007 05:39 PM

I really don't have a clue. I'm guessing it has nothing to do with dichromium bonds though

EDIT: Or carbon-carbon bonds, for that matter.

Nate the Great 07-25-2007 06:27 PM

No dichromium bonds.

Okay, here's a hint:

dir____ co____ fiver

Maybe I'll reveal more letters as the date approaches.

Zeke 07-26-2007 04:20 AM

Heh. This is like a Poirot story, folks: you have all the information you need to figure out what he's talking about, if you know where to look.

Nate the Great 07-26-2007 06:24 AM

Please don't spoil the surprise, Z. I expect that you're the only one privy to that information. And it was and continues to be a significant event in my life online.

Oh, and don't worry. It will be here on the 7th. I already know what I'm going to do, not like the Towel Day/Day of the Jedi crossfivers.

NAHTMMM 07-26-2007 02:03 PM

Oh. Well, it probably isn't the anniversary of the publishing of your first fiver then.

Nate the Great 07-26-2007 02:14 PM

Actually, now that I look into the matter, no, it's not. My first published fiver was for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. You won't be seeing any dicers for that, whatever they are. :)

Nate the Great 07-27-2007 03:43 AM

The first draft is now complete, and as a bonus you're getting TWO dicers for the price (namely nothing) of one!

NAHTMMM 07-27-2007 05:13 AM

Nate the Great 07-27-2007 06:14 PM

Seriously, you guys must know of a place where I can find out how to type out characters that turn into those fancy smilies. I'd really like to know!

NAHTMMM 07-28-2007 04:13 AM

There's always here.

I am? Then I was wrong about what it is. I'll have to think about it again.

Nate the Great 07-28-2007 12:14 PM

Oh well. You'll all see what it is soon enough. I'd just post it now, but five years is that important of an anniversary.

PointyHairedJedi 07-30-2007 07:41 PM

Has it really been five years? Gosh. I can't remember what I'm up to now, but I think it's at least that, maybe even six.
