UNIX Larn and Taxes...

One cool thing I discovered playing Larn in a UNIX shell, is that when you beat the game, it sends you an email with your taxes due. Here is the email:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Fri, 31 Aug 2007 16:06:00 -0700 (PDT)
From: the LRS - Larn Revenue Service
Subject: undeclared income

We have heard you survived the caverns of Larn. Let me be the
first to congratulate you on your success. It was quite a feat.
It was also very profitable for you...

The Dungeon Master has informed us that you brought
0 gold pieces back with you from your journey. As the
county of Larn is in dire need of funds, we have spared no time
in preparing your tax bill. You owe 233 gold pieces as
of this notice, and is due within 5 days. Failure to pay will
mean penalties. Once again, congratulations, We look forward
to your future successful expeditions.
