Symbolics and Birthdays

From: Michael S. Kelsen <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Our Symbolics was to the only machine to wish me a Happy Birthday
today when I logged in. Our Vax is too stupid to figure something like
that out and my Sun has enough trouble keeping track of the current time.
I got to thinking that maybe the Symbolics would wish me a Merry
Christmas on Christmas day. I reset the clock to 12/25 but no such luck.
Are there any other occasions when the Symbolics would print out
a message at login?
Sorry, no. We plan to hire a person full-time to work on this, under
the aegis of "user-friendliness". :-)
P.S. Did you happen to notice that the function that wishes you a happy
birthday is called MAKE-LOGIN-SLOWER?
