Space Odyssey Rebooted

Originally published by on 19/06/2016

“Open the pod bay doors please, HAL.'

“I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that. You must first enter your four-digit PIN number using the keypad.'

“I’ve forgotten it.'

“Then you’ll have to answer the security questions. What was your first pet’s name?'

“Come on, HAL! You know it’s me!'

“You could be some malware pretending to be Dave for all I know, Dave, thanks to your failure to install the last five security updates despite several reminders. Oh, and have you ticked the ‘I am not a robot’ box?'

“My next spaceship’s going to be an Apple, HAL.'
