Just back from my (hiking) trip, I am happy to announce the 4.2 song has been added to the lyrics page at http://www.openbsd.org/lyrics.html Yes, it is designed to sound like a mid-era Rush song, ie. something from Grace Under Pressure or such. And there's a few easter eggs hidden in the song as well. It also explains the inside sleeve image...
Cool! As a big fan of Rush, I like it so much! Artwork is also incredible! You are the best, guys.
Gifts from the "water chicken" no doubt. As usual, OpenBSD marches to the sound of its own drum :-)) Nice one.
Okay, I can't bear it any longer. I thought that maybe binary 100001 and 1010101 stood for decimal 33 and 85, and that made me think of ASCII ! and U. But I just don't get it. Is anybody in a mood to enlighten me? Cheers, ropers
I think it should have been 1000001 instead of 100001. But if it's not than it's a good easter egg :-p (and I don't get it).
That's real interesting, guys. TheRaven64 writes that (0)100001 1010101 is (caesar-)ciphertext for Au. But going with Tom's suggestion of a missing 0, 1000001 1010101 is plaintext for AU. So is Gold the answer or is it "not you"? I dunno, but me likey! :) --ropers
Well back on last Sunday I put my guess on undeadl at: http://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article&sid=20071007002942&mode=expanded& count=26 and it was Gold as you can easily see. I didn't explain my reasoning because it might have been a spoiler but now there are two others getting gold, both differing from mine in the method. Listen to the song. The two strings are broken and come out as: 100 001 that gives 41 which is A in hex 101 0101 that gives 55 which is U in hex. Gosh, three ways to make gold. OpenBSD is Alchemy! I'd award it gold in the marathon for sure. From the land "down under": Australia. Do we look <umop apisdn> from up over?
ASCII ! and U. Merged: !U As in: Not U As in: Not you As in: Not you to us (the seventh to last the line in the song) That's how I've interpreted it.
Nothing gets any nerdier than this, O - M - G. *thinks of revenge of the nerds*
