Proposal: Open the pod bay doors, HAL

Times out 14-1. Ienpw.

Adminned at 16 May 2010 08:05:31 UTC

Add a new dynastic rule entitled, “I’m afraid I can’t do that” with text as follows:

Only one Blognomicker can be {HAL} at any given time.  {HAL} may choose whether or not to {open the pod bay doors}.  If {HAL} chooses to {open the pod bay doors}, then {HAL} and becomes Harmless and loses his status as {HAL}.  If {HAL} chooses not to {open the pod bay doors}, {HAL} becomes Harmful and {Dave} may attempt to {disconnect} {HAL}.

My apologies to Dave.

for I believe that the phrase “then {HAL} and becomes Harmless…” contains a typo. The word “and” should not be there

If {HAL} chooses to
{open the pod bay doors},
then {HAL} and becomes
Harmless and loses his status
as {HAL}.

So if Hal opens the pod bay doors Hal stops being Hal? (Even without the ‘and’)

for , but only if that errant ‘and’ found by Galdyn is removed from the proposal.

I apologize for the ‘and’.  No, it’s not supposed to be there, and yes, I am not perfect and sometimes make a typo.  I’ll read through my proposal more carefully next time.
