The remainder of the walk back was thankfully uneventful. I feel out of my element here and a little weary considering the cautionary words from Levin and just the guy’s strange appearance itself. I need to find out the players in this game and find out quickly.
There is a large box next to my room door. This is what I suspect is my equipment. The box is mechanically attached to the floor, so I’ll just have to take my equipment out. It’s almost like hotel room service, but with a lot more security. The box has a bio analysis based locking mechanism on the top. I place my hand on the device and it unlocks. Everything appears to be in order. It also looks like all of my more covert tools are still intact.
I sit back in front of the room’s terminal screen. In my equipment there is a memory card wallet, I pull out one specific card and snap open the casing. Inside is a switch that changes the memory card’s data connections to a different part of the circuit board. I flip the switch and reassemble the card. This contains my set of basic system access tools. I load the card into the terminal and run through a temporary install procedure. I load up the data module from Levin and run a program to verify his claim to be a Government monitor. After 30 minutes, a full sub-atomic level match is found. One piece of the puzzle is now placed on the board. I was half hoping that the guy was just crazy. No such luck. That’s probably enough for today, I need some sleep.
