Between spoonfuls of cereal, I paused to ask, “Why did those women at the department of revenue storage think you needed to be rescued?” Clippy didn’t answer immediately and stared out the window while gathering her thoughts. I held out my spoon and joked, “Will some of my floating point operations help?”
Clippy looked up with an earnest expression on her face, “Nah, this is a delicate subject; it’s an edge case the founding developers didn’t anticipate. Those women were among the earliest uploads into cyberspace. We didn’t know it at the time, but their physical bodies were pregnant when they had their consciousness archived. All those hormones, the gonadotropins pumping through their bodies, sent the upload process a little haywire. Those women could not bond with cyberspace assistants like myself - instead, they see children wandering around making modem sounds. There is a whole other dimension of cyberspace they’ll never experience. Nowadays everyone gets a pregnancy test before uploading, but for those women - they are the only ones who will ever be pregnant in cyberspace.”

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.
