Uses for the automated prayer machine

Astute reader and friend Austin Kelly took time off from fixing the housing market this week to send me an email noting the similarity between the automated prayer service I posted on a few days ago and the goings on in the famous Arthur C. Clarke short story entitled "The Nine Billion Names of God." A discussion of the story (but not the story itself) is here.

The story is well worth reading.
