It's funny to notice the font/type used here is not from 2001, but an allusion to the trademark for IBM. Over some duration an unfounded story developed that HAL was was an acronym intended to be an inference to IBM (HAL being the immediately preceding three letters of the alphabet to IBM sequentially), with the whole of what HAL was an acronym for being invented to accommodate that. Eventually however, Arthur C. Clarke and Stanly Kubrick very explicitly confirmed that what seemed like a "Caesar" cypher was purely the result of coincidence, without there ever having been even a previous notice, much less any intention, of it being a cryptogram. (Clarke even wrote, "As it happened, IBM had given us a good deal of help, so we were quite embarrassed by this, and would have changed the name had we spotted the coincidence.")
