Work is pretty crazy so I haven't had a chance to announce there has been adjustment to the UOM known as a "Werby." After much debate during last Friday's round we have a final ruling from the Office of Weights and Measures division of 24 Chains. The final ruling is 3 Werby's equal 1 Sprow (previous ruling was 2 Werbs to 1 Sprow). There was much debate of the matter and it was a fruitful discussion. But, at the end of the all it was felt that 3 Werby's is the correct measurement. Moving forward please make the adjustment at you next 24 Chains round or any such Pirate Sponsored event. I have actually adopted the UOM's permanently. When I play with weird normal people, I will rarely say I'm 40 ft out. It's 5 Sprows out or 18 Werbs

That is all,

Sooo... if 1 sprow = 3 werbys, then wouldn't 5 Sprows = 15 Werbys, not 18? Or is that another update to the UOM that just happened while you were posting that? :-p
