"Starring the Computer" -- A website dedicated to the use of (real) computers in films and tel(evision/ly).

In "1970s TV and movies - and home computers?" newsgroup thread, Your Name mentioned Starring the Computer -- "... a website dedicated to the use of computers in film and television. Each appearance is catalogued and rated on its importance (ie. how important it is to the plot), realism (how close its appearance and capabilities are to the real thing) and visibility (how good a look does one get of it). Fictional computers don't count (unless they are built out of bits of real computer), so no HAL9000 - sorry...
