GoDot (S. Beckett Software) is an idle daemon that chews up all the
available time on your system. Execution is halted when you log in to the
'godot' account (password: endgame).
GoDot consists of two processes that send messages back and forth checking
to see if 'godot' has logged in. This design was done to insure that no
cycle goes wasted.
Oh, yes. :-).
