and the CD of Power
Of course, we have to have a Lord of the Rings reference:
Recently one of my friends, a computer wizard, paid me a
visit. I mentioned that I had recently installed Windows on my
PC, told him how happy I was with this operating system and
showed him the Windows CD. To my astonishment and distress he
threw it into my micro-wave oven and turned it on.
I was upset because the CD had become precious to me, but he
said "Do not worry, it is unharmed." After a few minutes he took
the CD out, gave it to me and said "Take a close look at it."
To my surprise the CD was quite cold and it seemed to have
become thicker and heavier than before. At first I could not see
anything, but on the inner edge of the central hole I saw an
inscription, in lines finer than anything I have ever seen
before. The inscription shone piercingly bright, and yet remote,
as if out of a great depth.
"I cannot read the fiery letters," I said. "No," he said,
"but I can. The letters are Hex, of an ancient mode, but the
language is that of Microsoft, which I shall not utter here. But
in common English this is what it says"
"One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them
One OS to bring them all and in the darkness bind them."
