And usually cropping up in the middle of a serious discussion, so there is often a pause while everyone else considers the remark as a serious contribution to the discussion, then realizes that it isn't.

From an "old fart" like me, the secret to long life is to "learn something new every day".

If facetious is that, then you're on your way!

For those who need to google "facetious" like me:

If you're lazy you can substitute fatuous; very similar meaning and takes fewer letters.

Yes, I did see it as facetious. However, it also raised a defensive response and the need to pontificate.

Well, at least I have an excuse...  One of my nicknames, bestowed by others, is "Pope Paul" - so if anyone has the right to pontificate, it's me.  ;D


(To save looking up Google, one of the pope's (unofficial) titles is "pontifex (maximus)" - "greatest maker of bridges" - from which we get the verb pontificate.  "The Pontifex Maximus (Latin, literally: "greatest pontiff" or "greatest bridge-builder") was the high priest of the College of Pontiffs (Collegium Pontificum) in ancient Rome."

Hi Simon,
many thanks for the explanation about GUIDs - I'm just that bit more educated now  8).
It all makes perfect sense post your explanation. I was being naive in my expectations.
I guess my solution is to keep a mapping of the Erwin <=> Sparx GUIDs. I'm not sure if I'll then run that into a CSV file (with the Sparx GUID) using the CSV facility to do then find the elements or just python it all the way.

with thanks to all for the discussion.

Or you can acknowledge that facetiae are witticisms and fatui are idiocies.

Rather be facetious than fatuous ANY day! ;)

It's a thin line, most people think they're the former but are perceived to be the latter.

I can't resist suggesting that facetious may be a synonym for facebook.
