Ah but Mike has viewed the depths of filesystem creation and seen the
dark Lords who live there dancing forever around the sleeping Nameless
One.  Its too late.. the best we can do is wall him up in a room next
to Seth and Stephen Tweedie and let them chant their prayers to their
new Mad Overlords: "Ph'sck mount'slafh Extphree" though Seth's is more
"O'yum rp'm" but they do go together as harmony.
