One student's course notes from https://www.unm.edu/~aierides/505/.
I have finished the whole set of notes for my statistical mechanics class which is taught by V. M. Kenkre 2014 Spring. Professor Kenkre’s lectures are as fantastic as an excellent thrilling movie without which I could never finish notes like this. I am very grateful to him for this adventure to modern statistical mechanics. The words I can think of to describe these lectures are the words used on the best chinese novel, Dream of the Red Chamber

...which is too hard to translate. It basically means that the subplot permeat[e]s through thousands of pages before people realize it's importance. Professor Kenkre’s lectures do have such power that a tiny hint could develop into an important result as the lectures go on.

From the Eye of a Legal Storm, Murdoch's Satellite-TV Hacker Tells All
Among the countermeasures he says he created was one known among pirates as the "Black Sunday" kill -- an elaborate scheme that destroyed tens of thousands of pirate DirecTV cards a week before Super Bowl Sunday in 2001.
Instead of being delivered all at once like other measures, the Black Sunday attack code was sent to pirate cards in about five dozen parts over the course of two months, like a tank transported piece by piece to a battlefield to be assembled in the field. "They never expected us to do this," Tarnovsky says.
The kill didn't last long before pirates found a way to jump-start the cards. But it holds an enduring position in pirate lore; for the first time, they could see a cunning mind at work on the other side.
