We are in Danger of Imminent Attack From Killer Robots From the Future

 
I just saw this extremely frightening event in one of my recent terrorist FTP transactions on the intertubes:

[...]
Response: 150-Accepted data connection
Response: 150-The computer is your friend. Trust the computer
Response: 150 11.9 kbytes to download
Response: 226-File successfully transferred
[...]
(emphasis added)

So I quickly Googly-Mooglied the event [ 1, 2, 3 ], and found this:

[09:43:19] 150-Accepted data connection
[09:43:19] 150 144.0 kbytes to download
[09:43:20] 125 Open the pod bay doors
[09:43:20] 225 Pod bay doors cannot be opened
[09:43:20] 327 I'm afraid I can't do that, Dave
[09:43:20] 226-File transfer aborted
[09:43:20] Connection closed

Jeepers!

Oh sure, evil computers from the future are far more frightening than brain surgery-izing apes from the future!

"Trust the Computer. The Computer is your friend" is a quote from an extremely funny role-playing game called Paranoia.

Randal Graves: Hey! Don't be so hasty to judge this matter. brain surgery-izing apes from the future are plenty scary!

BruceJ: Yes, but you are not supposed to see it in a secure FTP transaction! :o)

Sue J: Ha! The HAL9000 is such a kidder!
