Thank you,

That voice is the computer "HAL" from 2001, a Space Odyssey.

Nice looking site and easy to navigate. I will be needing a league schedule in the near future. I'm sure many will appreciate the work you have done. Between the site and the programs, your spare time must keep you busy.

Yea, I recognized it. Do you know why they called the computer HAL in the movie?

Having initially been upset by the use of their corporate logo in a film that featured a computer that killed several people, IBM was further angered when they discovered that the letters H, A, and L are only one letter removed from I, B, and M in the alphabet. Arthur C. Clarke, who said the letters stood for “Heuristically programmed Algorithmic computer” spent many years attempting to dismiss the rumor that this had been done intentionally, claiming as early as 1972, “we were quite embarrassed by this, and would have changed the name had we spotted the coincidence.”

Ha! Great idea to use the HAL sound bit. That was one of my favorite scenes when Dave starts to remove HAL's memory and we see HAL regress to the point of singing "Daisy, Daisy..."

Very nice website. Best of luck with it.

Thanks Rod,

It keeps me from getting stale and helps me enjoy my retirement. Now, I'm busy learning Java2.

It is my understanding that HAL was derived from the letters immediately preceeding I, B, and M.

Hi Fran,

I've had various sound clips from the movie for a number of years. I wrote some accounting software for a Movie Payroll company and put in various voices when errors were made. One of them being HAL saying "It can only be human error." My favorite sound bite was when a user logged off and Arnold came on saying "I'll be back!"

I have an extensive collection of fine art, drawings, post cards, paintings of beautiful women, in lovely dresses, playing pool from the l920's, I would be happy to share it with you, perhaps you could get some idea's from these.

You were looking for a teacher, I live a long way away in
Atlanta, but I have been asked to come out to LA, &amp; film a 2nd prime time TV appearance in Burbank, at CBS. After the thing is in the can, I am headed your way. Once a year, I take a vacation &amp; go to the north shore to hang 10, then to Maui, then to Kauai.
When I come to Ha vie e, I normally skip the big Island, because of time. I love the Island, but you can't do them all. If you want, I can hop a shuttle over from Maui, and perhaps I can show your son some things, and even fit him in a cue that is right for his size &amp; weight. If you are interested see my web site, www.fastlarrypool.com (http://www.fastlarrypool.com), and email me. Fast Larry Guninger

Fast Larry I would love to see those pictures /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif I just love graphics and fine art.

North Shore wow! you don't mess around when you hang 10 /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif The winter swells are huge here in Hawaii 30 footers /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif When I see a wave that huge, I run LOL.

I have seen your site but I don't see how much you charge. If you were to hop over, how much will charge and such?

As for not being able to visit all the islands, I know the feeling. I haven't been to Kaua'i or Moloka'i yet /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif and I live here LOL. I sure hope one day you get to enjoy the beauty of Big Island. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
