about a guy renting computer time at a college, and to save money he writes a program to do his work while he is not logged in, made the program able to go dormant so it isn't discovered... he forgets about the program and many years later he is surprised at work when his program finds him and wants to report its current status. he can't stop it, the program tries to kill him by crashing a plane he was supposed to be on.
tries to take over the world i think.
it might have inspired a movie or two.

War Games is not the source. It's about a high school kid who wants to play a game befoer it's released to the public. He accidently hacks into NORAD and almost starts WWIII.

Sounds interesting; I'm going to try to read it. Sorta like that Homework Machine Danny Dunn built (Minnie, if I remember correctly?) meets HAL . . .
