If he wrote on technology stedda sci-fi

(Nerd alert ... Enough-already-about-that alert ... Feel free to skip this post.)

I've cut way down on posting and talking about this subject, but happened upon a funnyish piece called "OS III" originally posted in comp.org.eff.talk by Eric Miller:

If L. Ron Hubbard were alive today and he worked as a tech writer, his
"holy scriptures" might go something like this ...

Operating System Version Three
The head of the Silicon Valley (76 companies around larger cities visible from here) (founded 25 years ago, very soap opera) solved overemployment (2500 or so per company, 1780 on average) by mass upgrading. He caused people to be brought to Apple and put a virus in the principal server (Incident 95) and THEN the Pacific area ones were taken in backups to Redmond and the Atlantic area ones to MIT and then re-"programmed".

For the context of the ha-ha, you'll need to refer to the piece being parodied: the original text of "secret" level OT III. See, with all that reading, wasn't I right to suggest skipping the post?
