Hah :) What? :O

No, for the record it was the first summit of
Mt Everest without supplemental oxygen. [1]

But: One never wants to add data to a program
which has no meaning - the data has no meaning,
that is - and "meaning" here in terms of the
program, of course - one never wants to do
that, but here I couldn't come up with a way to
do it otherwise, at least not without thinking
beyond what I thought was motivated as the
"no-meaning data" solution still solved the
problem with the time program. I didn't have
the time to do it any better than that...

     Timeline! This is no time to argue about
     time. We don't have the time!
