! = factorial operator, * = multiply - it avoids confusion with x the letter.

As to what use it is, what use is music?
Have we got time for another cuppa?

For me its

Sudoku/killer sudoku - until I get fed up of the game, then I leave it for a while, then do them for a while, rinse and repeat
..
Learning stuff - I no longer have to learn stuff for professional reasons, so I learn stuff that looks interesting. Much more fun that way! Go round library, pick up random books
..

Just realised, stopped doing sudoku (used to buy a newspaper every day)
+1 for Too Many Books of course

Latest plan is Upgrade to Fixie to free brain power that was needed to change gear :wink:

An article about current collectors on electric locomotives defeated me, but I shall try again

Went shopping yesterday, quite relaxed, checked my list
Back home I realised I had forgotten feta cheese, one of my staples. Fortunately I did not realise that while walking home, then I should have had to decide whether to go back

No quite retired, but looking forward to helping my son with his ebike business. Just started last year, and he's doing very well so far.
