    I think it was probably Arthur C, Clark
    who wrote a story about the 10,000 names
    of God. A technician had just completed
    installing a massive computer in a Tibetan
    lamasary. The head lama told him the computer
    would randomly type out the names of God
    and when the number eached 10,000 the world
    would end.
    As the technician is riding away from the
    lamasary he notices that the stars are going
    out, one by one.
