Hmm... intelligent extraterrestrial life?
Maybe I'll just hit "Cancel".
later, after a bit of VB coding, I had this nifty
little program running on a coworker's computer
(we'll call him "Klif" to protect his identity).
It worked like a charm -- when I came in the next morning,
Klif told me rather excitedly that his computer had discovered
extraterrestrial life. "Unfortunately," he
said, "it locked up while it was sending the data back,
but I sent an e-mail to SETI with the all of the information
on my screen."
somebody at Berkeley is laughing right now.
