Is there any way I could be promoted to maintainer, so I can maybe tweak out the settings and then start promoting the community itself? I think the place is fantastic, but I'd like more (and more, and more).

Q before U



the letter Q

A nice summary of the history of the letter Q:

During the Old English period, we didn't use Q in English: we wrote, for example, CWICU for 'quick' and CWEN for 'queen' (Old English, like Latin, preferred C for the /k/-sound instead of K). But then the French-speaking Normans conquered England, interrupting the English literary tradition, and, when English once again began to be written after the Conquest, a number of French spelling conventions were introduced, including the business of always writing Q for the /k/-sound when the next letter was U. And we're still stuck with it.

The letter Q is of uncertain origin. There is a sign in Egyptian hieroglyphic writing which denotes a looped rope (1). Another sign in the shape of a doubled loop is found in a very early Semitic writing used in about 1500 BC on the Sinai Peninsula (2). Both of these early signs have been compared by some scholars to the Q sign which was developed in about 1000 BC in Byblos and other Phoenician…

The meaning of Q

  A strong leader with a powerful influence and executive ability you exude determination, discipline and effort. Financial success is very likely because of this. People follow you because you are inspirational and original yet still realistic. Your ambition, courage and drive means that you rarely give up on a goal and with your sound judgement, organisational skills and resourcefulness you are able to accomplish anything.



  Emotional and artistic you have enormous energy and creativity although a rather serious approach to life . Through your own experiences you have learned to be understanding and compassionate towards others and always willing to help out. You are courageous, independent and strong willed with a desire to use your talents in progressive projects which will benefit mankind.
