Somebody cited this story, which appeared in Weekly World News,

> 10% of computers built since 1985 are possessed by Satan. Satanic
> computers can actively mock their users.


It appears to be a hoax. An acquaintance could not find Rev. Peasboro in or around Savannah, and thinks it is unlikely that a preacher would have an unlisted number. My acquaintance was unable to verify this story.

So, it seems that Weekly World News made the story up for whatever purpose, a piece of glorious humbug.
