Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part III: Credomar Command


ENNESBY: I've incorporated q-crypts in Pi's cutting charge design.  Barring extensive hacking on millions of pieces of actual hardware, they can only be set off with our detonators.

ENNESBY: The whole evacuation system is secure now... installers, detonators, cutting charges, and the teraports.

ENNESBY: Of course it's only really "secure" if we can depend on King Lota not to destroy the city with it.

ENNESBY: Everybody here is going to be living in the barrel of a gun, and Lota's finger will be on the trigger.

EBBIRNOTH: When you talked about putting all your eggs in one exploding basket, I didn't think we'd be the ones rigging the basket.
