Lest you think that Jay Adelson & co. simply take hellbeast-shaped programming notes, the bottom of the ASCII block directs you to the Dante’s Inferno promotional site, with the password “excommunicate.” Alas, you need five more passwords to access the site’s innermost circle.

Better cross promotion than the sickle-tastic Dante’s Inferno book cover, IMO.
