Oh, and I’m not a bot - shenanigans.” The attendant tapped a few keys on her terminal and then looked up, “Pass. Here is your revenue storage system.” She handed over what looked like one of those plastic bags you get for fish from the pet store - except it had a metal frame for a handle, along with a pump and pressure gauge.
I thanked the attendant, and next to me, Clippy let out a sigh of relief. “I thought you had blown it with that stuff about voting. Algorithms optimize social systems in the cyber-state; elections are more like a bit of ceremony here.”
We turned and headed toward the door.

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So to everyone that supports this place - thank you.
