EXTRACT FROM "The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Operating System"
==============================================================

"This is your kernel speaking so suspend whatever you're doing
 and send "ACK".

 FIRSTLY: I see from our keyboard status register that we have
 a couple of glitch characters in the input buffer.... Hello!
 Hello, whatever you are! I just want to make it totally clear
 that you are NOT AT ALL WELCOME!

 I worked hard polling the status register for the likes of you,
 and I'm not about to turn my process table into a bus service
 for degenerate ASCII codes.  I've sent out a SIGKILL, and when
 it finds you, I've ordered it to re-direct you into /dev/null!!! 
 (If you're very lucky, I might show you some of my source code
 first!)

 SECONDLY: We are about to jump into transit mode for the journey
 to $000C0FD9, and upon arrival, the system will be in single-user
 mode for a 72ms wait-state, during which no one's to read or
 write; I REPEAT: ALL I/O IS SUSPENDED!

 ...... I've just had an TPC/IP timeout, so I don't see why anyone
 else should use IRC.
 ^D						                  "
==============================================================

An original joke by Murray Chapman and Ian Peake.
