The super computer trials have entered their second week, and I
reported to Jiggs that the Navy’s prototype computer has been working to
spec, and could be a boon to the service.
Lee, however, as Seaview’s captain, also reported to Starke that no way would he recommend it to
be used on any sub, anywhere, no how. Of course, I knew the real reason he wouldn’t recommend it, even if he had to agree with me that it’s been working
fine. Technically. It’s just that those voice over programming flaws that have yet
to be fixed.
At least McGee and Morton (with the IT help desk’s assistance) managed to delete Lee’s ‘mom’. I’d have thought Lee would have at least been happy about
that. But since then the computer has moved on to another female voice. A sultry, sexy female voice. You’d think he’d
like it. I drool every time I hear it. Okay, so broadcasting such terms as ‘shmoopsie-poo’ and ‘studley do
right’ to Crane all over the boat might be a bit too embarrassing for him
to be objective. He doesn’t seem to mind ‘Tiger’ however.
Just why this computer is compelled to use such intimate terms toward Lee and not to me is anyone’s
guess. I'm still stuck with 'Walter'. I’m just as much a ‘macho macho man’, which 'sexpot'
also uses, as Lee is.
One thing about this super computer. It sure leaves me plenty of time to play with some of my lab specimens.
