Book 14: Broken Wind — Part II: Can Full of Sky


NARRATOR: Bristlecone, Cargo Bay, Commander's Lab...

KEVYN: I'm looking at the video now.  Those things are huge.

EBBY: *over comm* Have you run it through XB-Crunch yet?

KEVYN: Worthless.  The UI is sparse, and it's demanding more data.  I fed it your video, it spun for a half second, and now says "Waiting on user."

EBBY: *over comm* Oh.  We need to buy a license.  The trial version won't try to draw conclusions until it has thousands of hours of feeds from the biome we're analyzing.

KEVYN: *over comm* "Pay up, or I'll make you do all the work yourself?"

EBBY: It's a sound business practice.  More fun to be on the other end of it, though.
