Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]
Well... there's still time left for you to order that last minute gift to give to that Big Head Press fan you love so much. Including if that someone's you. Big Head Press Santa has been busy the last few weeks setting up the Big Head Press Supply Store at Zazzle.com.
From our supply store, you can buy coffee mugs, t-shirts, posters and more,sporting the Big Head Press logo, as well as images from Big Head Press stories like our current running popular slightly weird sci-fi webcomic Quantum Vibe. Many items you can customize their colors. We've stocked the store with a few items to start, and will be adding more over time. Stay tuned for announcements on that.
But the fun part is you can take any of the art work we put up on the zazzle store, and you can apply them to pretty much any product Zazzle will put it on. The list is too long for here. Check it out for yourself. And hurry, only a couple of weeks until Christmas!
The Transcript For This Page
Seamus deals with the Felipe Mendoza and the Agent Stone. Somewhere we can see Nicole's Sun-Shooter jacket folded and laid on a counter or table. Nicole is not in evidence. Mendoza tries to get in Seamus' face but he's not tall enough.
Mendoza: I am Felipe Mendoza, Hilliott Security.
Mendoza: Why did you return to your rooms after you checked out?
Three-shot, Seamus, Mendoza, and Stone.
Seamus: For the fifth time, we did NOT check out, despite what your records say.
Seamus: Your system is not secure, sir, and you have been hacked, no doubt repeatedly.
Seamus and the agents. Mendoza is enraged, Stone looks bemused. Seamus looks at Mendoza levelly.
Mendoza: Slander! How DARE you make such a claim?
Seamus: Because I hacked it myself in less than two minutes. If you'll shut up for five minutes I'll explain everything.
Three-shot, Seamus, Stone and Mendoza. Mendoza is apoplectic but remains silent.
Seamus: I had called Room Service to reserve a flegg to the spaceport for us in the morning.
Seamus: The clerk said we had already checked out and addressed me as 'Jerome' and told me to stop pranking him.
Seamus and the agents. Mendoza pipes up..
Seamus: I logged into the hotel's administrative section and saw this whole section of rooms had been flagged 'vacant' as of 13:00 yesterday.
Hotel Agent: You logged into … that's a restricted area!
Seamus and the agents. Mendoza is too aghast to interrupt Seamus. The Insurance Agent looks on thoughtfully.
Seamus: That's when I looked on the maintenance schedule and saw that this section was scheduled for vacuuming at 03:30 this morning.
Seamus: This was no coincidence – it was a special command entry created yesterday morning.
Now Stone has a question.
Stone: Any idea who made that entry?
Seamus: No – there was no time to investigate, as I had only five minutes to warn Ms. Oresme and then get into my emergency pressure-suit.
Now Nicole enters the frame. She has put her anysuit on and is using it to generate a curve-concealing dress-suit, with an ankle-length skirt. She has a sour expression, and Seamus is blushing.
Nicole: Five minutes? More like 5 seconds.
Nicole: Unless you put your suit on first and then remembered to warn me.
Seamus: Ah yes, well ...
