From the log of an afterhours messaging service operator . . .

Technology will never be able to overcome human stupidity. In one of their few efforts to provide more reliable cable, one of the companies fitted their equpiment with a temperature sensor to alert the office in case of an overheat. The only problem is, they failed to program it to give us any useful information concerning its point of origin, and since, after hours, we receive calls from every city that company services, the manchine could be located in any one of several hundred cities. All night long, we would occasionally receive a call from this machine, with its Speak-N-Spell voice, informing us of an overheat, in some desperate cry for help. This was both sad and quite eerie in its own way.

snicker. Look, people, if you're building some new high-tech gadget, THINK about it!
