"My PET 2001 did something very weird the other day. I had my CB2 speaker on in order to listen to a file which was loading (this is very helpful in detecting load errors, try it). The cassette was brand new and only had the file on it and the tape deck was recently cleaned, demagnetized, and realigned. However, instead of the usual buzzing after the file header, I heard, 'This is King's Army!' It couldn't have been more clearly spoken (much better than 'The PET Speaks' program in COMPUTE!, November, 1981, #18). My PET crashed after those famous last words and the speaker emmitted a soft whine typical of a crashed PET. Should I now address my PET as King's Army? Is my PET on the verge of AI? Does the CB2 line listen in on tapes that are loading and CB's too? Now that it has talked, will it soon start to walk? What happened?" Michael Hall
