Eric Muller's laptop is acting up in a novel way:
Twice today my laptop has said to me, a propos of nothing, “What would you like me to say? You may type anything.”
I haven't the faintest idea why this is happening.

Virus? Prank? Emergent, lonely AI? Demonic Possession? Surely if it were a mere virus, Google would have something on this by now….
No, not possessed. I know this thing, its a banner ad for a program that lets you create online avatars for your website and make them talk, but for some reason it always starts a-talkin at least 2 minutes after you’ve navigated away from the page…
That page doesn’t seem to have the name for it, but I believe its SitePal.
