Not likely, that seemed to involve paying attention.

I notice the puddy tat seems to have given up with the bus diagram and homeopathic tea puzzles, if Whiskas could carry on ignoring it for another few years that would be lovely

Since 'g' is defined as 2 rather than 1, that implies calibri is an FSM friendly font.

The exercises all devolve to straight forward substitution and arithmetic, followed by conversion of the results into roman numeral notation.

If you're going to go solving things that will take all the fun out of the thread
