The Kenigsberg Address

Four score and seven days ago my Unix mentor brought forth on this mailing list a new software, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are lousy spellers.

Now we are engaged in a great effort, testing whether that software or any free software so conceived and so dedicated can long endure and reach revision 0.4. We are met on a great website


We have come to dedicate a portion of that website as a final resting place for the new version 0.4, created so that the nation might spell correctly. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what the new version did:

We here highly resolve that this software shall not have been written in vain - that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom - and that spell-checker of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

Dan Kenigsberg.

P.S. I seldom go to the theater, so don't get any ideas.
