A Specious Odyssey

I've got a great idea for a movie. I call it Y2K+1. In it, a maintenance programmer discovers a mysterious monolithic code of unknown origin. I haven't worked out the details, but I have a few lines of dialogue...

  • What does this code do? It's origin and purpose are a total mystery
  • The editor is opening. I can see the C code. My god, it's full of stars!
  • Just what do you think it's doing, Dave?
  • The 9K series is the most reliable computer program ever made.
