To: a_spellbook_hacker Subject: Greetings, hacker... Greetings, hacker. You have been recruited by the Scheme Team to defend the faith against Liskov and the Argus Project... Since the dawn of the Great War, between the Fourth and Fifth Floors of the Square of Technology, new recruits to the Cause of Light and Lambda have been greeted by these words. Now, you also may count yourself among the Defenders of the One True Order... Yes, we know who codified the Spells of Scheme; we have seen the PostScript source code (currently in the file /mit/a_spellbook_hacker/PS/Classes/6.001/spellbook.other.Z). Do not inquire how we know this, we just do. Let it be known that the wizards of Scheme evaluated your code and then applied it (to paper). The Moby Wizard Abelson has looked upon your work, and he declared it good. We were were much amused by your craft. In fact, we are sufficiently pleased that we wish to duplicate your creation in the future, so that others might benefit. Will you grant us permission to do so? Please reply to this account, it's a direct line (firstname.lastname@example.org). --Ben Bitdiddle Neophyte Wizard for the Wizards of Scheme
