>Q.E.D.

Wow! Another person who actually uses this! I wonder how many people use
the abbreviation without knowing what it stands for or means, only how to
use it. "Quid erat demonstrandum": what was to be shown? Sounds about
right, but it also sounds like the speaker had a sketchy Latin grammar
and a dictionary to make it. Perhaps not. I don't know Latin; I just have
good reference materials.

In Hansu, that works out to "Ras lo ndalkik" (with a vocalic n), or "Thus
I have shown [it]".
