Every week in 2018, the plan is that my friend Rod is going to ask me some geeky question that will answer in a post. This week is Week #46, and today’s question is one that Rod describes as quite basic–indeed, he wasn’t sure if it was something he’d already asked. But he hasn’t, and so hear we go.
