I don't mean to be a nuisance, but...is anyone good with electronics, or repairing them? I could use some help fixing something I got from home.

[Okay, so maybe adding the finishing touches on a suit of fusion-powered armor is a bit beyond the typical electronics hobbyist, but in Rick's mind anyone that can successfully fiddle with a circuit board is intelligent enough to build a jetpack. Right? Isn't that how these things work?]

[Typing comes slowly to Gilles, who never used a keyboard in his life, and whose fingernails are almost more like claws than human nails. Nevertheless, these shortcomings aside, a conversation with Lancer and the example of the anon meme have given him an inadvisable idea. He is about to join the proud ranks of those who have asked for love advice on the Tower Network.]

my friends!!

i come to you to ask your advice ! i believe i might be in love but how do you you tell if oyu are?? if iam how do i maek my intentions knowN? please advice me as to what i should do?

my thanks!

[Also, as Gilles is big and obvious and takes ages to dramatically type his replies, it is quite possible for one to encounter him in the library, where he is eagerly awaiting replies that may assist him in his hour of need.]

It's starting to get cold. I heard the power was out for a long time last winter, so I'm trying to make things like gloves and scarves. If anyone in particular wants some, please let me know. Also, if there's anyone who could make cloaks or something else like that, it would be a good idea to do that.

I might as well say it now too, November 30th is Saint Andrew's Day, and I'd like to try to observe it. Assuming nothing prevents it from happening, I'll be preparing a feast on floor 25 on that day. Everyone's welcome to it.

A few questions for you.

If someone's existence or action is so reprehensible as to require a form of vengeance, is it then 'right' to act against them? Does one evil act justify another?

Furthermore, does any act justify murder in the name of what's 'right'? (Assume our example is in a place where death actually has normal consequences.)

[While it's been a while since Diarmuid posted to the Network himself as opposed to just responding to others, his expression is very similar to the expression he had the last time he posted--tired, worn.  Unlike last time, though, he actually seems happy to be as tired as he is.]

Those of you who were here in May probably remember a post that Saber of White made where she and I asked for assistance from people who would be willing to help make copies of maps and documents that warn others of the dangers on each floor of the Tower.  Since then we have continued to gather information and discussed the best ways to organize that information.  However, in light of recent developments and the very real possibility that things might be about to take a turn for the worst around here, I think that the time for information gathering and discussion has come to an end.

As a result and with Saber's permission, I would like to ask anyone who volunteered back then or who would like to volunteer now, to please meet at the Library on the 3rd floor early tomorrow so that we can begin making copies of the information and maps.  A printing press has been found so that will make copying the written part of this project much easier.  However, the maps will still all need to be hand copied and that will take much longer.

My friend and Master Waver Velvet will be helping me organize this.  Anyone who wishes to learn how to use the printing press need only ask one of us and we will be glad to show you how it works.  I would like to make enough copies to post one on or near each floor and then leave multiple copies in places like the library, cafeteria, and lounges where people spend the most time.  From my tests with rough drafts of the information, nothing we post to the floors will remain there for very long, but if we can keep copies in the libraries and other places where people gather, that will be better than nothing.

Once all of the copies have been made, I will also post a copy of the guide to the Network since I suspect that is the only place where it will remain permanently as long as the administrators don't decide to remove it.

Anyone with questions or comments please feel free to respond to this post.  I thank you all in advance for your help with this.  I realize that there is little we can do to truly make the Tower a safer place, but every little bit helps especially when we have bigger fights to focus our attention on.

(OOC:  Please keep in mind, the meeting in the library is handwaved.  Anyone who would like to say their character came to help work on this is welcome to do so!  Work is going to continue for roughly three days after which Diarmuid will be posting a copy of the guide to the Network and thanking those who helped out with the project.  If you have any questions about the guide itself and what can and cannot be done with the information, please refer to this OOC post.  Thanks!)

I hate to ask it, but if anyone has any seeds, or knows of a way to get some, I'm hoping to put the farmland to use. I'm in room 1-10 so if you'd like to just drop them off, it's fine to slide it under the door.
