Nous ne résistons pas à cette occasion à l’envie de partager avec vous ce petit clin d’oeil repéré sur multicians.org:

The following was circulated anonymously at MIT Project MAC in the mid-70s. Thanks to Sammy Migues for unearthing it.

Now that Multics is a marketed product, there seems to be
a need for some formal titles that express one's level of
involvement with Multics.  How about the following for a

User - one who learns something more about Multics every
    time he logs in.

Multician - one who knows a fair amount about several 
    phases of the Multics design; a jack of all 
trades, master of none.

Multicologist - one who studies part of the Multics
    design in depth, unearthing relics of the
    past, and making exciting discoveries daily.

Multometrist - one who measures and characterizes,
    compares and scrutinizes, Multices.

Multical Theorist - one who is able to talk about Multics
    without once referring to pxss, ipc, page, or

Operator - one who is certain to know less about Multics 
    than you do.

This note is a formal non-working paper of the Project MAC
Computer Systems Research Division.  It should be reproduced
and distributed wherever levity is lacking, and may be
referenced at your own risk.
