ZorbaTHut> gunjar, Devo Lyric Transfer Protocol
Gunjar> huh?
ZorbaTHut> it's a server and a client that communicate solely by sending Devo lyrics to each other.
ZorbaTHut> See, I only need one bit to be sent.
ZorbaTHut> "Run your command now"
ZorbaTHut> but I don't want anything to accidentally trigger that, so I don't want to, say, just send a single 0 byte
ZorbaTHut> I figure sending a line of Devo lyrics is sufficiently unlikely that nothing will accidentally do that.
ZorbaTHut> It only recognizes one specific lyric right now ("I say whip it! Whip it good!") but there's room in the protocol for expansion.
