I see no X here.

I see no X here.: Hackers (and the interactive computer games they
   write) traditionally favor this slightly marked usage over other
   possible equivalents such as "There's no X here!" or "X is
   missing."  or "Where's the X?".  This goes back to the original
   PDP-10 ADVENT, which would respond in this wise if you asked
   it to do something involving an object not present at your location
   in the game.
