Though what really struck me as odd was that as she was clearly using a laptop in the frame he didn't pop into the router and figure out who had the most recently used ports and simply message the terminal in use.

If I then go optimize the process so that I can kill many people with the minimium output, I start to question my humanity which leads to my distraction/death. So it basically depen...

Solution to the music detatchment problem:

go to the local university and sign up for a rotation show. The rotation show will let you hear and experience all sorts of new music from bands you've never heard. Also my studio at least gives away old disks after they go stale.
