Fine art!
What strikes me, though, is that Kevin Meltzer seems way ahead of the time: the document states it's from October 2001 and to quote my computer:

And the winner brings up a few other thoughts:

  • is there a tengwar mode for writing perl? ((x)emacs support would be nice)
  • what about rewriting The Camel in Cirth and carving it into stone?
  • is there a version of perl which doesn't use English words but Quenya for it's statements?
;-)

    Ha! I would normally say that I was bored of this month so I set all my clocks ahead to get to December more quickly (to celebrate my birthday).. but alas, the date was really put there by CMP since the issue is/was to come out in October.
