  1. @iloveX I also didn’t understand immediately this “carton-style” (specifically “xkcd-style”) blog post (“A new milestone”) from Paulo Cereda .

    However, after some searches & guesses, I think I “got it”:

    The user “egreg” – http://tex.stackexchange.com/users/4427/egreg – that is, in “real life”, the Italian Algebra Professor “Enrico Gregorio” – http://profs.scienze.univr.it/~gregorio/ – surpassed 200.000 points (that’s what “200K” – that may be misread as “zook” -stands for, in this blog post) in the “TeX – LaTeX Stack Exchange” site.

    So, many congrats and thanks to Prof. Enrico Gregorio, a.k.a. egreg ! ๐Ÿ™‚
