I remember seeing a Chicago city vehicle sticker with the word 'cipher' under any '0's in its serial number.

Also:

-'oh' (as in saying the letter 'O').

76 reviewed, considered and alphabetized terms for nothing - as a first post - in response to a long defunct thread. That is serious slacking, worthy of Cyburbia in its finest traditions.

We don't give gold stars here. We give these.

:macys::

and I'm going to throw in a big hug from uncle ursus :)

77. Devoid
78. Utterly lacking
79. Missing
