QotD: "I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992" - HAL 9000

2012.06.29-IMG_4841As I've noted in an earlier post, this date marks the birthday of the HAL 9000 computer. One of the great anti-heroes of 20th century film, HAL was by far the most vivid character in the Kubrick/Clarke film.

2007-02-17-dscn7183And so, here's to HAL and what would have been "his" 22nd birthday.

Here is a different type of aircraft, my flight leaving from Urbana-Champaign (birthplace of HAL)
