Yeah, that page is definitely screwed up:

 * The daemon mascott is there to offend people!  Oh, woe!
 * The daemon has blue/purple shoes (slippers?).
 * "You are now in the directory "math".  I beg to differ.
   I am in Houston.  I am in a nice swivel chair.  I am in
   a knit shirt and cotton pants.  I am in socks and shoes.
   Some might contend that I am insane.
   I am not, however, in a directory, "math" or otherwise.
 * The page claims to offer ``the'' one-line descriptions
   of the packages.  No matter what the descriptions are, that
   can't be right since there's no unique one-line description.
   Had it said ``some'' instead of ``the'', it would be okay.
