: ...Unless you're a programmer, that is. If you know the C programming
: language, like Jason, you'd associate that exclamation point with unary
: negation, and read it as "Tycho is NOT dead".

Yes indeed, one of those little revelations spotted early in the history of the Story page by Arthur van der Harg (Sept 29, 1995).

: It's a niche reference, but so is all the Latin, and it's not the last programmer
: in-joke we'll see. I'd just learned C at the time, and I read that part as
: Leela figuring out that Tycho is still around, which also makes sense
: story-wise.

And according to the Original Level Notes, Tycho was to have a much bigger part in the story.
