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


NARRATOR: Bristlecone, Cargo Bay...

PARA: Commander, I'm losing Ennesby.  I'm trying to scrub him, block by block, but the Tagii gestalt shifts with each pass.  It's getting harder to tell the two of them apart.

Ordinarily I'd run an incremental, scrub it offline, and then merge that with a banked gestalt.

Purge, restore, done.  Easy as rounded pi, and lots more accurate.

PARA: So... I'm wondering if you have a backup somewhere.

KEVYN: Maxim 41: "Do you have a backup?" means "I can't fix this."
