Talking Dictionary315. His Computer Is His Master


315. He tried to open a music folder. A dialogue box said, "You don't currently have permission to open this folder. Click Continue to access this folder." He clicked Continue. He got a new message: "You have been denied permission to access this folder. To access this folder you will need to use the security tab." He clicked the security tab link. He clicked My Music Properties. He clicked Everyone. He clicked To change permissions, click Edit. He clicked Edit. He clicked Add. He clicked Apply. He clicked OK. He got a message: "An error occurred. Access is denied." He wanted to pull his hair out. How could his own computer deny him access to his own folder? How could his own computer be telling him what he could and could not do? It suddenly dawned on him. His computer was actually the son of HAL, the renegade computer in "2001." 4.4
