    That's what I was thinking - wasn't that the name of the computer in Terminator?

    This must be a joke?

    Yeah.

    Sarah Connor and Dave Bowman must be running for the hills.

    Cyberdyne is the company that made the computer in the Terminator series, the computer was called Skynet. ;)

    It's my favorite franchise, but not big on the Sarah Connor Chronicles TV series, they messed up too much in it.

    Lol. I bow to your Terminator superiority. I haven't seen the new one yet, or the TV series. Is the new Terminator movie worth seeing? The third one was so bad I blocked it out of my mind, but I loved the first two.

    I recognized the HAL reference, however. I think this must be a joke.

    Bah! I keep forgetting to see the newest movie, so ask me again in a bit, I'm going to find it now. :lol: But the third one as horrid by Terminator standards. Check out the comic series, that's pretty good.

    Seems JB's science and technology sources have finally come to light ... he gets it from a humor rag. ;)
