Nice obfu. Yet I hope you realize that this curve existed way before xkcd made it popular and that it has more to do than the sole geekish entertainment.

    Of course (hence 'featured', not 'introduced'). I'm guessing XKCD was not around in 1891. That's why I linked Wikipedia first. More info at the following excellent sites: Hilbert Curve at Mathworld and Peano Curve (more general) at PlanetMath.

    Update: Oops. Just looked at your profile, which states that you hate xkcd and wikipedia. Sorry for the salt in the wound.
