(14:13)pwnz0rz: cool, so glad were past the parrt where sonja treis 2 correct my grammer
(14:15)EntropicPhantom: Well, this is officially a terrifying thing to be talking casually about.
(14:15)SonjaOfTheMoon: Why do you think I'm not giving Luke flak?
(14:15)FelisKitty: And I'll stay here playing Only Sane Women with Cat. Sonja, make sure to get that program to me ASAP.
(14:15)EntropicPhantom: Hold up, I think I missed something. Maybe when I was off chatting with Arby?
(14:15)SonjaOfTheMoon: Just a simple heartbeat script. That way, if we lose contact, we'll be notified, and something @henay can happen to try and rectify the situation.
(14:16)EntropicPhantom: Oh, good idea!
(14:17)FelisKitty: So, is there anything else we need to take care of before we go play discount superheroes?
(14:18)SonjaOfTheMoon: Er... It's not super-important, but there's one loose end I'd like to tie up before I go. Just a personal matter.
(14:18)EntropicPhantom: Oh yeah, we don't want to be worried about that while we're in the air. Go for it.
(14:19)CGoddess: Your phrasing concerns me.
(14:19)EntropicPhantom: Ah, well...
(14:19)ReverseTheStreams: Oh hey, Sonja!
(14:20)SonjaOfTheMoon: Hey, Revvie. Have you heard from Theo yet?
(14:20)ReverseTheStreams: No, what about?
(14:20)SonjaOfTheMoon: Oh, er... something... came up. :/
(14:20)SonjaOfTheMoon: I'm sorry, but it's not something I can explain easily, and I'm not going to be able to work on the thing for at least a week.
(14:20)SonjaOfTheMoon: ...which looks really bad so soon after joining, I know, but... let's just say there've been some Issues space-side.
(14:21)ReverseTheStreams: "[S]ome Issues"? You mean like Pancake's space station falling out of orbit? Because that's been all over the news. Any relation?
(14:21)SonjaOfTheMoon: Yeah, actually. You know how he bankrolls the moon base? I... don't really think I should go into the details, but...
(14:21)ReverseTheStreams: Hey, you don't have to justify anything to me! I'm about to announce I'm going on maternity leave soon, anyway.
(14:21)ReverseTheStreams: It'll be fine. Theo wanted to keep this on the DL a bit, but he's got deep pockets. He'll be fine.
(14:21)SonjaOfTheMoon: Actually, it's not so much Theo I'm concerned about as you. I'm going to miss chatting about things.
(14:21)SonjaOfTheMoon: Wait, you're having a baby?
(14:22)ReverseTheStreams: Yes! Duke and I have been trying for a while now, and... it worked!
(14:23)ReverseTheStreams: I mean, it won't be for a couple months still, but stilllllllll!
(14:23)ReverseTheStreams: It's hard not to just bring it up at everyone!
(14:23)SonjaOfTheMoon: Is that why you're bringing it up right now?
(14:23)ReverseTheStreams: I plead the fifth!
(14:23)ReverseTheStreams: Anyway, hey, you're more than welcome to chat me up whenever you want to! I like talking to people.
(14:24)SonjaOfTheMoon: I've noticed. ;)
(14:25)SonjaOfTheMoon: Only.... I think that'll be difficult for much the same reason. :( I guess the real reason I'm bringing this up is to apologize if I lose connection for a week or two. I'll be back, I promise.
(14:25)ReverseTheStreams: Thinking about me in the middle of your moon crisis? Aww, shucks.
(14:26)SonjaOfTheMoon: Uh, maybe, why?
(14:27)ReverseTheStreams: Ah, they contacted me... in a really strange way a while back. It's probably nothing.
(14:27)SonjaOfTheMoon: No, please go on.
(14:28)ReverseTheStreams: Uhm... they tried to get me to do a job for them, and when I said no, they made weird threats... about the baby, which...
(14:28)ReverseTheStreams: Well, I guess there's not much we can do about it now. They haven't bothered me since, so, it's whatever!
(14:29)SonjaOfTheMoon: How did this person know about the baby?
(14:30)ReverseTheStreams: I don't know. They... uh, they knew they...
(14:30)ReverseTheStreams: I'm sorry, I lied earlier. I'm not just going on maternity leave.
(14:30)ReverseTheStreams: The conversation touched on my AI research. And it's like... they had access to the chat log. Duke and I decided it's better if we protect ourselves and get out of there.
(14:30)SonjaOfTheMoon: "like... they had access to the chat log"
(14:30)SonjaOfTheMoon: Could you elaborate?
(14:31)ReverseTheStreams: Er, they knew the baby names Duke and I were talking about. It was very strange.
(14:32)SonjaOfTheMoon: Oh my Gods.
