Your Writer: Jon Kilgannon I thought hard about how much exposition to put into this page. Too much, and it becomes a dissertation on network security. Too little, and the entire plot flies over the heads of my readers who don't eat and breathe computer networking. I was able to finish the script when I put the exposition into the form of give-and-take between Juruna (who is playing dumb) and Caprice (who is prompting Juruna to talk).

I sometimes feel like the last technically-oriented person in the world who hasn't gone over to wireless. I even installed in-the-wall network cable between my home office and my wife's home office so my LAN can be completely wired. Partly it's because of concerns about security, and partly it's cost. A wired network card is ridiculously cheap - especially to someone like me, who still remembers the days of five hundred dollar network cards. (Token ring cards. Slow token ring cards. Uphill. Both ways. In the snow!)

Your Artist: Mark Sachs Wait, Dr. Juruna wasn't wearing her glasses last page, what's going on? Actually, she has 20/20 vision and just wears the pince-nez for effect.

Keep an eye out for Sunday's update when we'll upload a keen new fan art!

P.S. Squeeeeee!
