    I'll have to check what the limit on radio power transmission in Vegas would be.
    Depends on the band you want to transmit on ...

    Thorn! Good to see you. Now I feel like asking if I'm being served...
    "Beef with Green Peppers" is about the closest I get to Chinese on a daily basis. The only Chinese symbols I really know are 平静 , but that's only because I'm a Browncoat at heart.

    And only Capt Peacock would ask you "Are You Being Served?"

    Oh I for got to mention, the title line is Chinese. An invitation (thrice fold) to join a quest from the old classic "Romance of the Three kingdoms".

    Here's a snippet from online
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    It's Chinese.

    The Japanese translation is 三顧の礼.

    In Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Liu Bei visited Zhuge Liang 3 times before he has him as one of his men. So the phrase means visiting someone 3 times to hire or invite him, more broadly, trying to hire or invite someone with utmost respect.
    -------------------------------

    Zhuge is an unusual Chinese surname and because he was a cunning strategist, it is now sort of a nickname for a cunning strategist.

    You guess that you shouldn't guess? Are you sure?

    It would be fine because technically number stations don't exist, which is why they're illegal to listen to (wait, what?).

    Yes, but we aren't controlling a space station, or are we?
