Meanwhile, on the demonic front

Something clever?: Is your computer possessed by a demon?

An evangelical from the US apparently put forward these propositions in a book in 2000:
  • Demons can possess anything with a brain, including a chicken, a human being, or a computer.
That would account for some evil chickens I have encountered in my life.
  • "Any PC built after 1985 has the storage capacity to house an evil spirit."
I suppose that means they can live in USB keys too.

Fascinating.

My first computer was something from Dick Smith's that had soft, squishy buttons, and you had to hook it up to a tape recorder and fiddle with the volume for ages to try to get it to record a program. I think it may have been so dumb that it could not be possessed.
