Conditioning works on pretty much anything with a brain as far as I know... maybe it needs to be a vertebrate brain or even a mammal brain, but cats are mammals so that's not a big concern

Milk; he was going after my cereal so I gave him some of his own (minus the cereal)

I learned on Twitter that cats haven't recognized the legitimacy of any human government since the fall of Cleopatra VII.

And super-fast, too-- that's how they always land on their feet, because they can do the three-dimensional force calculation on how exactly best to adjust their body.

Now, some scientists probably think that's "instinct" and not "deliberate calculation", but scientists say lots of things

I feel like Dexter would constantly be saying "give me food, bitch" which would probably make him a little less endearing

He likes to follow people into the bathroom and just sit down and stare at them while they do their business.

But try to do the same to him when he's on the litterbox, he hates it

Now that we've gotten rid of the Space Shuttle, spaceships mostly fly themselves. So I guess you might as well have a cat instead of a human play the role of "spam in the can".

I'll go with the Canon Cat, it's more an oddity...

And I'm definitely going with the Cat if it's the one from my blog post :-3

The canonicity of cats is itself non-non-canon.

The PET 2001 had no speaker, so no :) But people modded them with one... but if you count mods you can do whatever, someone could wire a Raspberry Pi to the PET's serial port, doesn't mean you can run lynx on a PET :P

Hm; I figured there was no reason you couldn't run an IRC client on an Apple ][, but what I found are using a "serial to modern computer" hack, so doesn't count... If we allow that, then the winner is probably some Intel 8008-based terminal, which really doesn't feel fair. (I doubt the Intel 4004 was used in anything capable of even serial bridging to IRC)

So, ugh, the 1981 IBM PC might be it. Sadly it predates the 68k machines. Why am I so disappointed? The PC is bor-ring! :P

Now, of course, that's talking about microcomputers. Dunno any reason why early UNIX computers ("boxen") couldn't run IRC clients, but the PDP-11 and its ilk didn't have single microprocessors like the tiny machines did, they all had "central processing units" that were composed of multiple chips as far as I know.

EDIT: Okay the General Instrument CP1600 from 1975 was a single-chip implementation of most of the PDP-11, so if the PDP-11 can run IRC, then the CP1600 probably can and would have good odds of being the oldest-- but I can't find any evidence the CP1600 was used in any computers, just Honeywell controllers and, somewhat oddly, the Intellivision
