LLC paper accepted in record time

My LLC paper, the 9,000 word one about the inadequacy of markup for cultural heritage texts, has been accepted, exactly 30 days after it was submitted. I was expecting a wait of two years or so; this approval makes it the fastest paper I have ever had accepted. Who says the humanities are sleepy? Obviously they thought this was important enough to approve straight away. And I don't think the reviewers were bored. Unlike many papers in the field it doesn't concentrate on a small specialised area - e.g. the digitisation of one author's works, but on the digitisation of all of them. A pizza and beer tonight.
