BTW, for those of you who are interested, HAL was supposed to be developed
right here in Champaign-Urbana Illinois like two years ago. I think the news
story here said they really *did* have a HAL computer, but that they were only
up to about HAL 2 or 3K, not 9K yet. Oh, well. We still have 6 years to
permanently settle the moon and mars and build a really big space station.
