I love it. I wonder if I can get this inserted into the code...

I've run across a few more similar messages, which lead me to conclude
that this particular programmer may have gotten his start in the
computer gaming industry.

Gene mentioned other countries, but if it was
<not-other-country>-made software, I'd be expecting
a further pop-up message a few seconds later, stating
that the event been disallowed at the highest levels,
all record of it had now been redacted, the area
had been 'sanitized', and all downrange personnel
had been extracted and debriefed... plausible deniability
had been maintained. and... this message will
self-destruct (taking your computer and all
unshielded electronics and wetware with it) in
<mumbledy> seconds...
