Iron, like a L10n, in Zion

Was reminded by all you second-year folks handing in CS247. Translation thanks to Claire.

(Background: We were assigned a small software engineering project last year which was designed to handle bookings for a car rental agency. The messages the GUI should display on success and failure were described in a specification, leading to "Booking impossible" entering our lexicon as a term for general failure.)
