It may be in the form of rain, snow, sleet or hail, or in minor forms such as dew and hoar frost, but existing theories do not yet satisfactorily account for all the observed characteristics.

4.17.1 Software agents

A software agent is a program that displays a certain minimum level of autonomy – it acts as a surrogate for a human user. An agent does something for the user automatically, when given instructions.

An agent can be run on a client (the user's machine) or on a server (for example, a web server). It can also be anchored (stationa
