Topic: City At the end of Time and a site that reads the Linux kernel aloud

There's a scene in City at the End of Time, where Jebrassy and Tiadba are reading aloud from an ancient tome, and the words *kind* of make sense to them.

Listen to www.linux.fm - the kernel is speech-synthesized, it kind of makes sense, and is reminiscent of the book when comments are read for different revisions made over the years. As the site points out, if you really want to grok it, you need to open 2 browser instances and get a couple streams going at once ;-)
Glossolalia at its finest!

Kind of like listening to quantum mechanics on their coffee break!
