The surface of the cube is described as an ancient and discoloured bronze like metal rather than stone. The word Device is properly spelt with a capital D like Earth to distinguish it from the more mundane variety.--Teletran 08:33, 27 January 2007 (CET)

Interestingly CuBe is the chemical name of a copper alloy; Cu=copper Bu=beryllium. I wonder if Pratchett knew this? I'm also wondering if the Devices are partialy based on the Rubik's Cube.--Teletran 10:27, 27 January 2007 (CET)
You may wish to submit that as an annotation. It's an interesting tidbit. Fhh98 01:51, 28 January 2007 (CET)

There is also article Cube. A case for bringing the two together?--AgProv 01:32, 17 August 2007 (CEST)

definetly. Is here a policy about always using singular instead if plural? If not, it might be needed to clarify how a page should be named. --Trublu 11:05, 17 August 2007 (CEST)

Absolutely. AgProv modified this article the same day he created the new and redundant one. Why? --Old Dickens 14:49, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Usually it's "whatever is the most logic". Mostly that's singular, but if something only exists in plural (like the Agony Aunts) then that's the best. So in this case, Cube is the correct article. --Sanity 17:42, 17 August 2007 (CEST)

It's been two+ years... are these articles ever going to be merged? TC01 23:33, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

AgProv chose to create a parallel article here and I'm at a loss to reconcile them. If you can, congratulations. --Old Dickens 02:42, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Done it. --Sanity 11:53, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
