Not sure.  Most of our computers are run by humans.  We have tried to 
train our bacteria to run them, but the keyboard was just too much for 
them to handle.  We are currently attempting to get some simple fungi to 
run one of our older PC's, but they just screw up the diskette drives.  
So far, the lowest life form that we have successfully used to run a 
computer is a toad.  Unfortunately, the code still has a few bugs in it.
