    I thought that looked familiar. 😀

    Unfortunately, I can't vote on this poll: there's no "Still don't remember" option. 😞

    The next time that I visit "the mists of time", I will make a more thorough search. 🕵️

    nothing, its possessive.

        thanks for the smiley, but I meant exactly what I wrote. Welcome to my sense of "humor".

    It doesn't stand for anything...

    It's a psy-op instantiated by snake sellers suited to serving their insidious spread through surreptitious insertion of sibilant "s" sounds... :-)

    Just another Perl hooker - My clients appreciate that I keep my code clean but my comments dirty.
