Hi On the subject of computers giving silly answers, (or programmers making silly mistakes), there is a story of a Artillery Computer which, in a test version of the software, tried to fly the proj all the way around the world. What I mean is, say the tgt was one K east, it pointed the gun West, did its sums and then decide the tgt was out of range. Spherical trigonometry or some such. What fun!
