I wondered a lot when I saw the Unicoin April fool yesterday. Since, in my experience, development takes a great time.

Is it possible to have some information about the effort which this development required?

It took 6-8 weeks.

(Jokes aside, it took a few weeks of work1 by balpha -- he will answer separately if he has time)

Original answer:

A little known fact is that in the stack overflow code base, there are exactly:

  • 37 usages of the F-word
  • 37 usages of the S-word
  • 60 mentions of unicorns
  • one usage of "giant S"
  • one mention of ponies
  • 5 mentions of waffles

How many can you find in our publicly accessible files?

  • @Undo That would kinda spoil the fun of "How many can you find" if all you have to do is Ctrl-F.

    @Undo there is the formatUnicorn function in the javascript. Rather useful one, does string substitution. +1 would unicorn again. Apr 2, 2014 at 6:28

    Uh, @Sklivvz, why does review.js create its own JSON function? Apr 2, 2014 at 6:37

    @ShadowWizard Don't think of it as one day. Think of it as months and months of productivity wasted by clicking rocks.

    I assume the f word is filly, and the s word is sire.
