Since then it has been reprinted twice as part of the Discworld canon: once as an "extra" in some editions of Snuff , and most recently in the new anthology of short stories and ephemeral writings, A Blink of the Screen. The story concerns a meeting of the Faculty of Unseen University to urgently discuss the threat posed by an inspection of the University precipitated by Lord Vetinari.

The faculty meeting has more than occasional echoes of the dismal faculty meetings Henry Wilt is forced to attend at the Fenland College of Technology, where academics prove to have much the same grasp of reality and bureaucratic doggedness as their counterparts at UU.
