! is typically used to mean factorial ie. N! is the product of all the integers from N down to 1.

I believe that season 2 is underway (http://usefulramblings.org/?page_id=10801).   I am working on the incorrect date/time stamp.  Check it out  and let me know about  the streaming side.  Is it reliable?
