The attendants celebrated inside the gallery - they must have been on commission. I wondered, “Clippy, are they uploads or algorithms?” Clippy replied, “Those attendants are uploads - all uploads work a day job till they create data with value. Once you’ve made it, you’ll have enough clams to buy expensive designer furniture.” Fair enough, I thought, but getting free designer gear sounded like the great cyberspace dream. I asked hopefully, “Will the cyber-state loan me one of those fancy couches?” Clippy sighed a little, “Where are you going to put it? You can’t really store it in one of those underground sleeping pods. And secondly, the cyber-state will only loan you the essentials: food, a place to sleep, that sort of thing.” Bummer, it seemed like I was going to have to work for my clams after all.

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.
