A while ago, Ron Garrett posted a big text file containing all messages posted to comp.lang.lisp. I extracted some data today: nearly all of Erik Naggum's article sigs. Here are some examples that made me smile:
-- SIGTHTBABW: a signal sent from Unix to its programmers at random intervals to make them remember that There Has To Be A Better Way. -- suppose we blasted all politicians into space. would the SETI project find even one of them? -- if we work harder, will obsolescence be farther ahead or closer? -- (defun pringles (chips) (loop (pop chips))) -- if you think big enough, you never have to do it
It would make for a good fortune(1) file, if anyone still used those.
