The classic C64 one-liner

10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10


yes '╱ ╲' | awk '{printf $(1.5+rand())}'

Gordon Moore was not only the co-founder of Intel and the namesake for Moore's law, the claim that every two years the number of components on a chip double, he was also, together with his wife Betty Moore, one of the donors who made Wikidata possible.

Thank you for enabling us to make Wikidata happen.
