I thought that was an exclamation point!! I'm not sure I've even seen that in a formula before.

### ! is typically used to mean

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

so the answer may be 16! = 16*15*14* ..... *4*3*2*1 = some large number

I'm looking forward to Season 2!

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?
