I have no idea what secret powerful incantations he can muster nowadays,
in what arcane languages. But I hope for the sake of humanity, he uses

prophets: Torvalds, Stallman, Cox.. and sacrements should include
encryption, compiling code, and creating divine objects as inspired by

Make (chant: Compile as commanded, Lord..)
Make Test. (chant: We have been tested and found pure)
Make Install. (chant: Place us along the righteous paths you have given us)
Let us pray while invoking the commands the lord has given us.
(chant: Life is given, It lives. Amen.)
I'm in Guyana S. America rigt now, I feel the urge to build a compound.. .
Kool Aid anyone ? --Mike--
