Linux numerologists warn of coming apocalypse

Author: JT Smith

From the tech humor site Segfault: "A small group of the local sect of Hasidic Linux
users, who have been using Linux to perform numerology on the Bible, Torah and other religious texts, decided to
use their analysis skills on the source code to the Linux Kernel. Aftering use wc to analyze various portions of the
code, adding and subtracting the results, multiplying it by the time, and gzipping it, they received the hexadecimal
equivalent of hourly snapshots of Microsoft's stock price from their IPO in 1986 to sometime in the year 2067."
