By the way, the g is silent.

I'm a computational-neuroelectrophysiologist-by-training turned functional imaging researcher who loves to use MATLAB at work as well as for my hobby (designing video games). I've used MATLAB and C for almost 15 years, and I'm also familiar with IDL, MPI, C++, and smatterings of Java and Ruby.

Some proposals on Area 51 that I'd like to see get off the ground:

comment What was the first set produced by The LEGO Group?
@Kramii: I never said the earlier bricks weren't compatible, but the official branding as "LEGO bricks" occurred, as you said, in 1953. Therefore, the sets I list above are the earliest I could find that could officially be called "LEGO bricks". The company made other building sets earlier, as you point out, but called them by a different name ("Automatic Binding Bricks").

comment Firmly connect bricks in a triangle
Can the two angled pieces be connected to one another? That would strengthen the overall structure.
