Don't remind me about it. I may have invented the idea of Microcogs,
but I unfortunately sold my patent to a chap called William for a
couple of hundred dollars.

A few years later and Microcogs runs on pretty much every mechanical
adding machine in the world....

If it wasn't for free and open ended cogs there wouldn't by a smidge
of competition for Bill and Microcogs....
