[[Yoshi is typing on his computer]]
Computer: S1R3N: "the mutex?"
Yoshi: B0R0M1R: reading docs now. it's a development machine, so i can scan the sources.

Yoshi: looks like a suped-up server, except for these special extensions. if i didn't know better, i'd say it's a virtual reality system...

Computer: S1R3N: virtual reality? can you patch us both in?
Yoshi: B0R0M1R: not with the native interface, which appears hardware dependent. but maybe i can emulate it...

[[Yoshi sips from a drink]]
Computer: S1R3N: how long will that take?
B0R0M1R: couple of minutes. a genius with an adolecent metabolism and lots of caffeine can work miracles.
