I told my wife this morning before she left for work that I "less-than-three'd" her.  She looked really confused.

That's better than my wife would have taken it..... she would have thought I was calling her a 3 on the scale so to speak. FWIW she is a very sensitive girly girl so your lucky she was only confused by you statement. I should say it to my wife too just for the laugh factor I'm a a$$ that way and deal with the fallout after  :'(

Glad I could liven up your (and your wife's) day!
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

She emailed me this morning from work "Now that I've had my coffee this morning, what did you call me as I was leaving?"  After explaining it to her, she thought it was funny. 

She has also been brewing with me lately and brewed a couple of her own batches, so she knows what Beersmith is and said "tell the guy on the homebrew forum that Beersmith is a great tool and he should get it."

As a novice homebrewer (only brewing 2 batches thus far). I find BeerSmith to be a useful tool.  I like the fact that I can look up most any grain, hop, yeast, or style of beer and get some information on it.  I like seeing how the additions of certain grains can change the gravity while others barely budge it.  I also enjoy the timer, being able to take notes, and create your own system setup that is exactly tuned to what you personally have. 

Like others have said, It won't tell you if your beer will turn out good or not, but it will provide a snapshot of just about everything you can imagine, so when you go back and analyze your brew day, temps, what happened when, etc, you have it all in one neat, easy place.
