ASCII Ad for Dante’s Inferno Hidden in Digg’s Source Code
Feb 4th, 2010, 1:28 pm
Here’s an Easter egg for the ages: the folks at Digg have put an ASCII promotion for Dante’s Inferno in their source code.
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 http://www.hellisnigh.com, 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.
