Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

    When I created this nick I was reading a philosophy book which said Aristotle was called the "paradox log" because he talked using paradoxes. I didnt want to seem a philosopher, I just liked the reference. Rarely I have not find any mention to that out of books.

    Ummmm. As an newbie, I was only searching for long and complicated words. I settled with excogitator after I found it means "a thinker who considers carefully and thoroughly".
    I'm still lost on what exactly I'm supposed to consider thinking about.

    interesting that excogitate is so similar to exfoliate[ex-foli-ate]

    I wonder what cogito means? Rene Descarte uttered the famous sentece "cogito ergo sum", I think, therefore I am.

    cogito - think

    ex - means to originate, emanate, enormous, proceeding from.


    Oh well

    Actually cogitus is think, cogito is the dativus of cogitus.

    aha, so -ator indicates the person?(as in dictator, terminator, aggitator)

    Latin translations always sounds humbug, like -"oh yeah, like that really means that!"

    ex-cogit-ator is more or like "emanating/originating thoughts from a person"?

    correct?

    like biblioator = He who is an book?

    Ah, so its latin. Consider that. Took quite some thinking.
