Tell me about the girl. The girl is good. Our people have hidden her in the city. She's smitten with you, you know. Tell me something nobody knows. Walk three yards past the shadow of the cathedral's steeple 10 minutes after noon. A deaf man will be waiting in a doorway. He will take your hand & lead you, blindfolded, to the place we keep the data. The data is the girl. Tell me how you've done this. I dug through all the strata of the alleys of the city & never saw her face. Tell me how she keeps her peace with these beta-versions of security floating uselessly around her. Take the third brick from left & turn it 'round real quick. The key beneath is binary; you'll figure it out. We only loosely know the identities of even our favorite friends. She'll tell you, when you see her. It's almost dusk, too late. It's all luck, really. My eyes hurt from looking.
