Well friends, like a pooch in the classic Pavlovian experiment, ol' "Riley"
salivated when I rang his bell. Here's the scenario:

I was curious whether or not the Great Intellect was still looking in on
behalf of his Master in the UK, so I mentioned some irresistable stuff in my
posting earlier today. Ding! He responded. The fax machine hummed, and I
received a printout of my posting from his home. Moments later, the phone
rang and he said, "Geller hot line!" and hung up. You see, this is to show
me that the GI was still vigilant, watching for crumbs he could offer his
Master. I, at that point, was supposed to cringe upon knowing that GI was
looking over my shoulder. Yawn.

Technology should not be allowed into the hands of juveniles. Or clowns.
