Small Colon Collider, up, running

Back in business:

“The Small Colon Collider is a huge project involving cooperation between many European nations and we therefore built in filters for acute and grave accents, umlauts, cedillas, circumflexes and even the ringpull on the top of a Swedish å, but the Spanish only came into the project late and gummed the whole thing up with their mañanas.

“The tildes kept slipped off the first n and getting stuck in the machinery.

“But now we’ve cleaned them all up and installed a tilde filter, so it’s all systems go.”
