    Ridiculously Trivial Trivia

    Here's one of those fun questions that are of no importance at all, and carefully designed so that they're impossible to answer.

    Well...... Almost impossible.

    What do all of these individuals have in common?

    George Washington, Paul Revere, Robert Fulton, Ed Sullivan, Walter Winchell, Franz Schubert, and Casper the Friendly Ghost.

    Their full names all have the letter 'e' in them.

    No, guys, this isn't a joke, or a random list. It's an exclusive list, and a true legitimate question. There are a few other fictional characters besides Casper who could be included; but, to my knowledge, there are no REAL people who belong on the list, except those named above.

    It's only fair to tell you this -- it's purely a "quiz" type question; you either know the answer or you don't. You might guess it, if you're lucky. But it isn't something that can be "figured out."

    The six names on my list are the only REAL people who appeared in the 81 original CASPER cartoons!
    I fail to understand how George Washington could have possibly time traveled to the future to appear in a cartoon...

    All of the persons named and also the fictional entity Casper are dead.

    Morbid but that to me is the link between them.

Trivia question: max value for -w in ping command?
Trivia question: max value for -w in ping command? I don't mean the max wait a ping can experience. I just mean the maximum value after -w on the command line that will not give an error. If they use a 32 bit integer then it's pretty big. But if it's only 16 bit maybe we're limited to 64k? ...
