Haha check this out I just found this easter egg:
# nmap -v Starting nmap 3.81 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2005-09-01 21:50 BST Happy 8th Birthday to Nmap, may it live to be 108! No target machines/networks specified! QUITTING!
So cheers to nmap, jeers to the moron at 188.8.131.52 who just tried to brute force my sshd, and beers for the guy in a datacentre in New Orleans who managed to keep the forums up, despite a hurricane, for so long.
