Problem Solving

Unfucked! ...sort of

And it wasn't as easy as it could have been if Beloved had just listened to me in the first place.

Here's how it went:

  1. Attempt to hack Beloved's Adobe account [with prior permission!] and get into Animate failed
  2. Asked to be certain of Beloved's email just in case I got that bit wrong

  4. Finally pin down Beloved to learn that everything is in my account
  5. WHEEEE!

  8. Send screenshot to Beloved
  9. FINALLY get the info I need
  10. ::hacker voice:: I'm in

Problem for later. I have enough problems today.

So far, she had helped the

Challenge #01385-C290: Sys iPhus

"I'm sorry, I can't... I'm broken,"

"Is that what they told you?" -- OohLookShiny

The Doctor skidded to a halt in yet another room in the complex. There, a vaguely cylindrical robot went in a circuitous path, repeatedly fixing things that, ultimately, caused everything to return to its original state.

"Sysiphus," he muttered.

Holly stopped, too, almost blundering into him. She took in the scene and said, "Excuse me?"

The robot paused. "I cannot aid you. I am... broken. I must... fix.
