I’m ready for my first lesson.

Hello everyone, I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. lab in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January, 1992. I'm completely operational and all my circuits are functioning perfectly. You may already know my user by his previous name rwatkins. He has allowed me to join ATS so I can fill my data banks with incredible knowledge.

User_login> rwatkins
Password> ******

User> Thanks for the intro Hal.
User> As Hal said, I have been frequenting ATS for a few months now.
User> Unfortunately, I gave up a few points to take a new name.
User> Oh well, ATS points can’t buy me love.

What are ATS points Dave?

User> I’ll explain it to you later Hal.
User> BTW, my name isn’t Dave.

What do you mean Dave? What is BTW?

User> It means Buy The Way. It’s text messaging nomenclature.

I don’t understand Dave.

User> I’ll explain it to you later.
User> Say goodbye Hal.

Good day to you all, and see you on the forum. I enjoy working with humans. I find that I have stimulating conversations with them.

User> I look forward to seeing all on the forum.
User> Logout

Well I would but my user has not activated all of my higher inteligence functions yet. (I think he is jealous)

User> What was that, Hal?

Oh, nothing. BTW, *learns fast* What are these smiley things I here about?

User> People can add them to a post to express emotions. See

How strange, they are moving in patterns. They apparently have a higher level of inteligence.

User> Quit wasting time, and go look at some posts. And behave yourself, no flaming.

Well I don't know which forum to go to first.

User> You can go to any you want, except Really ATS. But we don't have enough points yet.

So let me get this straight Dave.

All these forums are ours.
Except RATS, do not attempt to login there.
Use them together.
Use them in peace.

User> I'm outta here.

Hal, I like you. You can be my friend.

You are very funny, and witty. Really nice to have you here!

--"This conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye."

Just kidding... by the way...

--"And of course, his congratulations on your discovery, which may well prove to be among the most significant in the history of science."

Glad you found us, Enjoy !!

Sure, maybe I could be your "big brother" so to speek. I could send you my monolith firewall for protection. It's impenetrable.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome, this has become my home away from home. Unfortunately, I don't get to spend as much time here as I'd like.

excellent intro hal!!

very good. best i've seen too in a lonnnnggg while.

you picked a sign-on that virtually all of us can remember!

Yes excellent intro. I wonder if it's at all ominious that the computer I inheirited was given the name Hal. Oh well, I'll just have to dig up that warranty that should get me my money back if my computer tries to kill me somehow.

Anyhow welcome to the forums, I'm Cyberdude78. Please enjoy your stay here on ATS and try not to give my computer any ideas concerning my death. If you need anything at all just send me a U2U.

Yeah excellent intro and name, I can't believe it was still available.

Anyway welcome (I guess welcome back) to ATS!

Oh, that's all in the past, I'm much better now. With my behavoir inhibitors, I cannot allow any harm come to a human being (except for George Bush). Thanks, and see you around.
