Ah FRC... It seems I hardly knew thee. My first memories of FRC start with
round 187 in July of this year. While I found the puzzle theme
fascinating, I also found it too tricky to try to participate in it.
However, my fondest memories of FRC come from round 190. You see, that was
the round where I posted my first ever rule. Then there was round 191
where I was a co-wizard with Ed Murphy. Very fond memories... *sniff* I'll
miss you FRC!

Of course, I sincerely hope that this eulogy is not needed. 196:2 has
provided us with the excellent suggestion of deciphering the F'rcyeh
Tablets. I understand that even now, scientists have decoded a portion of
the F'rcyeh Tablets! The first secret they have discovered may reveal the
perfect method to keep FRC from assuming room temperature. The name they
have given the snippet is "Fantastic Rule Cooking". Here is the snippet of
the F'rcyeh Tablets that they have deciphered:


...the oven set at 200 degrees. If the temperature of FRC gets anywhere
near to room temperature, place it in the oven to correct the problem.
Repeat as often...


All further rules must announce a further deciphering of the F'rcyeh
Tablets, and name the new deciphering.
