I don't know how much credit I can take for "Dave's duck":
ruby -rdrb -e "DRb.start_service;duck=DRbObject.new(nil, 
'druby://whytheluckystiff.net:6503');puts duck.daves"

Why the lucky stiff drew it, and some software I found turned it into ASCII 
with a bit of configurification by me.

But I did claim to have posted it:
"Dave posted ..., and an alternative big ASCII-art duck that was ..."

Feel free to improve this text if it's unclear.

Cheers,
Dave
