Hm, that reminds me of one of the old classics on the early web. Tere was a
student in New Zeeland whose cat would stay on top of his modem, which was
warm and cosy. He also had some sort of permanent connection to his
university, so he set up a web server on his Amiga which had an ARexx script
which would accept forms input and talk it back with voice synthesis through
the speaker, so that people might keep his cat company while he was away. I
still have the (presumably broken) link on my '95 vintage homepage. =)

En ligne avec Thor 2.6.

        You are the logical type and hate disorder.  This nitpicking is
        sickening to your friends.  You are cold and unemotional and
        sometimes fall asleep while making love.  Virgos make good bus
