Most of my colleagues have teamed up with the neuromancers to try and find a quicker solution to the problem. For the most part these efforts have not been rewarded with success.

Sorry for the visually unexciting page today, everyone! I'm in the midst of building up a good buffer, so I had to release this page individually instead of as a pair like I'd originally intended.

See you next week on the 23rd!
