I probably wrote the first version of Ching.   You could type a question 
as an argument and it would hash the question and use it to simulate 
yarrow sticks.  I used a small book for the "prophecies", and at some 
point realized that it was probably some kind of copyright violation so 
I dropped it.  It's quite possible that others tinkered with it as well, 
that being the way the world worked then.
