I stumbled on a version of Genesis 1 written only with words starting with the letter 'A': llamasandmystegosaurus.blogspo

One of Larry Wall's Three Virtues of a great programmer is laziness. So, instead of creating a nice #gopher site, I'm writing a script that would build a nice gopher site out of a bunch of Markdown files thrown randomly into a directory.

I've been using the collaborative online with end-to-end encryption (and getting a lot of friends to use it) so much that I'm considering setting up an instance on a server.

@cryptpad is now fundraising for some awesome milestones:

- Spreadsheets and Office-like docs by integrating onlyoffice.com
- Commenting
- Shared Drives
- for pads with cross-instance commenting and messaging!
- Offline editing
- Suggested edits

I haven't exercised my set logic neurons enough recently, and was wondering if someone could help.

If i have 3 sets:

s1 = {1}
s2 = {1, 2}
