Nice! Turns out I have a copy of "The Book Of Five Rings" right here in my office, between "The Tao of Programming" and Harbison-and-Steele "C: A Reference Manual".

This whole thing does raise some historical questions, though. For example, if the Earl of Sandwich is famed for inventing a method of having portable meals, then did the infamous Count Down invent the idea of zero, or that of very small feathers?
