The longest S-expression in the history of Lisp (of which Computing Science is a subset, of which "Information Technology" is a subset, of which what you''re currently doing probably is a subset - a circumstance which does not plead in favour of your intelligence, or for that matter moral values)

Quoth the logs :

phf: entire wot as one giant s-expression, for people who are into that sort of shit, (9.5MB)

It occurs to me this is a rather momentuous occasion. As it's well established by now, Lisp is a fine language with no practical applications - except, of course, for La Serenissima, which is using it extensively, along with all sorts of other ancient technologies meanwhile buried in a cloud of cargo cultist shit (like for instance the RSA signature and encryption schemei, or static linking, or so on and so forth).

In which vein, let us make a day of it as the saying goes, and list the wonder for inquiring minds which might wish to know : s-exprtxttarii.

Congratulations. You are now a lot closer to computing than any 4 year undergraduate program could ever have put you. Doesn't it feel great ? Now consider it didn't even saddle you with financial debt (to say nothing of the technological debt the retard factories saddle alumni with)!

  1. No, "PGP" or "GPG" have nothing to do with RSA signatures. Not anymore. It's been confiscated from them, on the grounds that the fuckwit Zimmermann (not the one that shot the porch monkey ; another one) actually admitted to having "lost" his historical key, then pretended like this is not important, and generally moved on to serving USG with all sorts of faux "dark phones" and assorted Tor-ish skulduggeries. The other USG assets involved don't even have the distinction of a faint bright moment in their distant youth. []
  2. This should have been inline, but can't be, because everything that came before us is wrong.

    Holy shit it cut out all the dots in the filename except for the last one also! []

  1. Worse yet. Modern GPG isn't even at all Zimmermann's, but that German dude's - the one who allowed GPG2 to be a thing.
