ACK informed me that they had finished assembling the machine I’m writing a manual for. ACK wanted me to check out the machine and hopefully clear up any misunderstanding I had about its functions. The machine itself was sitting in the factory at Mirai Kojo (Candy Land) so we had to make plans as to how I would get there. Originally I was supposed to go to Mirai Kojo (Capitalism Ho!) at an earlier date, but due to some circumstances we had rescheduled for today. Unfortunately I didn’t know what time I was supposed to go there. But seeing as how this wasn’t too far off standard operating procedure (I’m usually not informed of activities until the day before or day of) I didn’t worry about it too much.
9:00 AM rolls around and I get a call from ACK.
ACK: Um…Where are you right now?
Me: I’m at Namikata.
ACK: Oh. About seeing the machine at 9:00 AM.
After consulting some of my coworkers and agreeing that it was not possible for me to instantaneously teleport to Mirai Kojo (Party Central) we rescheduled the meeting for 10 AM. Shoe had some errands to run at Mirai Kojo (Electric Boogaloo) so he gave me a ride.
I met up with ACK and headed to the factory to see the machine. After pressing various buttons, setting off alarms, and trying to figure out how many millions of wires were actually connected to the thing I felt I had a decent understanding of how the machine actually worked. I cleared up a few final concerns with ACK and then went off to find Shoe and head back to Namikata.
