One late rainy night I had an idea. There is a hill on IL route 29
in Peoria IL, that people climb and write a small message across this
hill for everyone to view from a far. What would be better than
spreading my two most favorite words across this hill. So we set out
with a little over 200 garbage bags and nearly 400 nails. 12:30am and
rainy so you can figure that a hill of that size is going to be
slippery (lol) nearly falling down hill with every step we start
building each letter. At around 2:30am we have finished and now the
sun will rise over a hill which spreads the words Free Software to
every person that passes by. This is by far a vary small non-complex
hack but I beleve it is a hack in it self. This is a tribute to Free
Software [and the GNU Project].
