Subject: Weekly Classic Computer Trivia Question (20150204)
This time lets refer to some classic fictional computers used in movies.
Everyone probably knows about the HAL 9000 used in the movie 2001 a Space
What was the name of HAL's sister computer in the movie 2010 Odyssey two?
That was a warm up question. This one should be more difficult.
What was the designation of the computer in the movie WarGames and what
does it mean?
As silly as it was the movie Hackers referred to the mainframe computer in
the movie as a Gibson.
Where did the term Gibson come from?
PDP-8 SN 1175
