Every so often out of sadness comes a truly inspired idea.  The origins of X-Clacks-Overhead may just be one such moment in geek folklore.  It is very fitting that the name of Sir Terry Pratchett should live on in a very subtle manner following one of the ideas from his own stories – keep sending out his name as part of the actual machine overhead itself.  Forever.

My own set of discworld books have faded covers, from many years on and off bookshelves, but are now being read once again.
