The Whiz Kids Were Right

I would like to point out an error in your response to David Smith's question about Whiz Kids (COMPUTE!, February 1984). You mention that the sprinkler system that they turned on should have shorted out the terminal they were using. You may have missed this, but it did short out. For a while they were successful in keeping the terminal dry by standing over it, using their jackets as umbrellas. But when the water did get to the terminal, it shorted out.
