Stupidly Brilliant

For the second book, subtitled “Seriously Bonker’s selected bigrams synthesised by synthetic brains, I’ve started recording the source of the SB. This is stored in the Supplied by taxonomy.

AI (7) Alex Horne (1) Andy Wood (3) Ava Mae Cowe (2) Billy Connolly (1) Brean Jenkins (12) Corporal Jones (1) Dave Gilmour (1) Dave Salmon (1) David Baddiel (1) Dawn Jenkins (4) Dion Mandziej (3) Giles Stanley (1) Greg Brown (2) Hilary Miles (3) INXS (1) Isla Ruby Cowe (1) Jean Wilson (1) Jenny Hopper (2) John Boyd Brown (1) Jonathan Edwards (1) Louise Cowe (1) Mark Fitzgerald (1) Mark Willcox (3) Mike Boyd (1) Mike Brown (3) Peter Miller (1) Phil Sparshatt (1) SB (1) Steven Johnston (1) Susan Miller (3) Tony Cullen (1) TV advert (5) TV Rugby Commentators (1)

You may notice that my name ( Herb Miller ) is missing from this list.

For the time being, for any SB that isn’t yet associated with the Supplied by term, then by using this lookup table you can infer who came up with it.

If the SB is one of these then it’s likely to have been Supplied by
Created in 1991 Someone in the Silver Bullet team
Sandy Bits Someone from Rowlands Castle Golf Club
Spanish Break One of the Madrid, Scotland and Hampshire set
Sampled Bigram me, Herb Miller, since I would have written all of the bigram’s contents
Seen Before? me, Herb Miller, since the logic that kicks in to create bigram’s in this category only works for logged in users. And I’m the only person who can do this.
it’s got a photo me, Herb Miller, since I would have taken the photo.
Surf Bite Now it gets a bit trickier. It would have been me that took the screen capture but someone else who used the SB.

Originally sampled from sand box.
