Yep. I like it because we share our knowledge, and learn, give, learn, give, learn. What's better? You LEARN!

Yes.. I do feel guilty when all my names are up there. I feel like I'm trying to dominate these forums! [:o] But I do it anyway, as I have nothing much better to do, and I like typing. [:D]

Heh.. I had this little CD when I was young called .. Dunno.. But it was something to do with typing, but it was like a game.

There was like a monkey bar course, and every letter you type right, you go one step further. If you get the letter wrong by accident, then this little green jelly like (flubber kind of) thing would get bigger everytime, until it pops.

It was fun. Improved me alot though [:P]

Most common abacuses have two groups of counters in each row, a group of 5 and a group of 2.  The idea is that, since 2 x 5 = 10, so each row can count up to 10.

The abacus you showed had two groups of counters on each row, but they were two groups of 5 counters, and 5 x 5 = 25.  So each row can count to 25 before you move to the next row.
