The Blinky Console

In Sharon's dream world of Harry Barker, the Blinky Console is a small tavern and inn that is considered a safe haven for hackers away from the "luddie" world. When Harry runs away from home at the start of "Harry Barker and the Prisoner of Angband", he travels to the Blinky Console via the Scuzzy Bus. When he arrives, he is reunited with Harmony Stranger, Don Measly, and the rest of the Measly family.

The Blinky Console is the analog of The Leaky Cauldron from Harry Potter. Its name was chosen to invoke the same irony as its Harry Potter namesake; just as a leaky cauldron is not very useful to a wizard or witch, a console that blinks in and out is not very useful to a hacker trying to code.
