Hi folks,

It looks like our Randal isn't just notable in Perl circles, but also 
from the early Usenet. Google recently posted an archive of Usenet 
messages dating back to 1981. Among their featured "timeline" articles 
was the first mention of Star Wars Episode 6, by our very own Randal L. 


Congrats to Randal! A great quote: "I can't really imagine waiting until 
1997 to see all nine parts of the Star Wars series." I remember the 
comic strip Bloom County making the same comment the next year. It 
sounded like an eternity at the time. Yeek.

~chris, who hopes no one finds his bad poetry from 1992
