"5. Satiric movie scenes ...is taken from "Start Trek IV" when Spock and Scotty are on earth and supposed to use a 20th century personal computer. Scotty tried to talk to it as he is used to do on the Enterprise and of course failed. He was then advised to use the mouse, which he did - assuming that it is used as a microphone." He states that Spock and Scotty attempt to use a 20th century computer, when it was actually Scotty and McCoy (both shown in the accompanying picture). Just sayin...

All the simple programs have been written.

Working...
