Cats, computers

Had a good break with Loren and the Old Cat Lady Geek. The Old Cat Lady Geek was talking about her plans for a program to teach cats the keyboard, the alphabet, some simple words, and to type their own names to log in.

Hacker-cats!
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
