I guess I meant for this to be a question: Anybody still have those measurements?  I remember that it wasn't a linear progression...

has the original dimensions

Each step is 3/8ths of an inch taller and approximately 7/32nds wider
(actually 3/14ths, but good luck finding that on your ruler), so a six
pip would be 2 1/8" tall and 1 21/32" wide.  Approximately.  (Actually
1 9/14")

 That's right isn't it?  Double check my math.  Wednesday is bad for
 And I think that IS linear growth, pretty much by definition.
