Three chapters today. The first one's fairly short, although the other two aren't. But all three are either transition chapters or, in the last instance, a bit of a digression, and it's time to move along a little more smartly. Besides, they conclude this section; I'll start a new section Wednesday, and get back more closely to the main story. There's a bit of Spookish fun to begin, which ought to put a point to the degree of power that a computer can wield in today's electronics-dominated world if it comes alive.
