Seeing as StankDawg invented the term WarTyping, I guess that would make him a "findige philosoper" - well according to "Der Standard" (German News publication) anyway. ;)

If anyone knows what "findige" means though, i'd love to know as it doesnt seem to be in the dictionary!

BWAH-HAH-HAH! A "findige philosopher" ? WTF is findige?

...as opposed to a wiseass with a knack for finding odd things interesting...

Do I wear to wear a robe and smoke a pipe now?

Just found out an interesting fact, after I translated wartyping.com into English from German (I clicked the link on the translation of the article - google modifies all links so that they go through its translation engine)

Got the following:

DDP is apparently German for Strip Packing!

sorry guys, I was in a game of Warcraft3 when you IM me, and it didn't break through my game! (which I am glad of). When I got back and saw your message I was like, WTF?!?!

HTF does DDP = strip packing?

Those crazy Germans! :) Do we have anyone who speaks German on the board who can translate these the correct way?

Well, according to a friend, DDP stands for "Deutsche Demokratische Partei", or the German Democratic Party. No ideas on how they get Strip Packing out of that, though . . . Too weird.
