       We've got Bakery/2, but that's still a bit long. B/2?
bookworm, Aug 14 2000

       ...or not B/2. That's the question...

       'Slashdot' came from the punctuation '/.'. I like '.5bakery', and typing a whole eight characters doesn't bother me...

       3 chars, seperate fingers, quick, simple, stupid. confusing?

       What about making it "oneslashtwobaked" and for extra pizzaz you could caps every other letter and stand on your head while typing!

       ...or not.

       H/B - simple and effective.   

       Shouldn't this idea be re-named "Standardized Halfbakery Abbreviation"?

       The best symbol would be the IPA code for a "rounded back open vowel", in Unicode LATIN SMALL LETTER TURNED ALPHA, number 0x0252, which has the form of the bottom half of the letter B.   

       Of course, a thin letter E or thin number 3 would each resemble half of a B, sliced vertically.   

       Wow, recommending unicode characters is dull.

       We could just assign one of the private use code points to be the Halfbakery Symbol, and use it wherever appropriate. (There's no need to actually design a glyph for it.)   

       There's a bakery near where I live which has an awning which is slowly losing its letters. The B and A are gone and the K is looking tattered. So it's nearly a half bakery. Soon, soon...
