mystery hunt, mit, aswartz, epstein

Yesterday I boosted some toots about how Hanuka is not Jewish Christmas. It's a much more minor holiday—Passover and the stretch from Rosh Hashana to Yom Kippur are the big ones in the Jewish calendar—but since it gets attention I figure it's worth talking about what it actually is. It commemorates a story of grim survival. But where Purim is about bodily survival—both a failed massacre and getting through the winter—Hanuka is about the survival of a culture and an identity.

- code complexity
- code coverage
Anyone else not surprised?
