Hey kids! The next print installment of Quantum Vibe is on sale now.
Volume 2: Murphy picks up with Nicole safely away from her imprisonment on Luna, bound for Mars, so that Seamus may take care of some business matters. Nicole quickly learns that Mars is a planet of intrigue disguised as civility, and it's not long before she stumbles head long into plots so twisted you'd need an AI to sort them out. Fortunately, she makes friends with one.

The .bit Revolution Begins!
I know the crypto/digital freedom fighters out there are wondering how in the world will they get to see the next daily update of Quantum Vibe after the forces of tyranny seize control of the Internet's domain name system. Well fear not. Michael W Dean of Freedom Feens told us about a decentralized domain naming system which makes use of a bitcoin like technology called namecoin. You may have seen a reference to it earlier this week on Quantum Vibe.
This distributed registry resolves Internet addresses for domains ending in .bit. Now, you can access the bigheadpress.com and quantumvibe.com websites using the names bigheadpress.bit and quantumvibe.bit.
If you want to try it out, you can download the free firefox plugin, freespeechme, from here.

The Transcript For This Page
Re-establish the scene: Guy, Pierre, Sherwood, Rosenberg, Henry, Suki, the koi ponds (which are now very important), the bambo beyond.
Rosenberg: Please, Sv LeBoeuf! I have not finished.
Rosenberg: The field of combat is in the central koi pond, immediately behind me.
Medium close-up on Pierre, looking shocked.
Pierre: What! Uh â€¦ how deep is it?
Sherwood steps forward to answer Pierre's question. Include Pierre and Rosenberg in the shot, with Henry and Suki behind him. Sherwood, Rosenberg, Henry and Suki are grinning.
Sherwood: It varies between about 160 and 165 centimeters.
Medium shot of Pierre, about to blow his stack. Guy, also grinning, stands by.
Pierre: But, that's nearly to the top of my head!
Pierre: This pÃ©dÃ© would have the advantage! That is not fair!
Medium close-up of Rosenberg, smiling a bit as he speaks. Leave plenty of room for the dialog.
Rosenberg: But fighting with swords would have given you a clear advantage over Sv Freeman.
Rosenberg: You had no problem with that, did you?
Rosenberg: Yet, you complain if the circumstances favor your opponent.
Two-shot of Rosenberg and Pierre. Pierre can barely contain his rage.
Rosenberg: Sv LeBoeuf, you have two choices.
Rosenberg: Swim â€“ or sleep â€“ with the fishes or abandon your challenge. Which shall it be?
Pierre, his face very red, stalks away from the group, towards the right side of the panel. In the middle ground, Guy addresses the group. He is partly turned so that we can see him grinning. The rest of the group is all smiles.
Guy: As Second for Sv Pierre LeBoeuf, I hereby abandon his challenge to Sv Freeman.
