Take this personality test! What is the name of the paper size that is twice the area of A0? [Poll]
@wobin Ask any engineer over 50, or a younger one who used logarithm tables.
(Spoiler: in some professions, notably engineering, numbers less than zero are represented in complement form where only the part before the decimal point is negative. 1̄.37 = −1 + 0.37 = −0.63.)
@futzle what if I'm an engineer, and a programmer, and I forgot most of my math but can't afford to pay for ISO specs?
@futzle DIN 476 from 1922 FTW! Nowadays that's ISO 216.
Sometimes it's also called A00.
But I guess you knew that and I outed myself as a norm-nerd?
