It's 2/10 of a cent. My guess is that some dumb computer kept dunning him for that almost-zero amount and he just snapped.
It happens...My sister closed out a bank account years ago and kept getting monthly statements showing a balance of $0.00. She finally wrote a check to CASH in the amount of $0.00 and the statements stopped. I guess that HAL (2001's computer) wasn't the only machine that was insane in the mainframe.

Webmaster blurred the name, but the only thing blurred in the original was the routing & account #s. It's a different guy, but the date coincides with that guy's blog. I'm sure they're related, but only indirectly.
