So when the third round began, Bruce Wright and I were
on one side of a table, and Ken Thompson and someone else
from Bell Labs (who years later I realized was Brian
Kernighan), were on the other. I noticed that when Ken
Thompson logged on, the Bell Labs computer printed:
Chess tonight, please don't compute.
I mentioned that that was really neat to be able to get the
comp center to put out a notice like that. He said something
non-commital in response.
