Guess that explains all the characters around here.  :-)

Actually I find vectorizing puzzles to be quite fun as puzzles.  As do
many others it seems, given how quickly questions like "how do I do
this efficiently" get answered around here.  But sometimes I just want
code to write itself -- and do so efficiently -- without me having to
think.  ;-)
