The CITI Terminal

Characters: someone, me

I was asking a group of people in a dream what they could tell me about their world, the date/etc. Feeling like things would be most effective if I could read the news, I asked if I could use the internet.
someone: "Computers haven't been invented here yet."
I pointed over in the corner at what looked like a terminal.
me: "Well, that looks like a computer."
I walked over to it and it was very simple, running something DOS-like. I tried typing a couple of simple commands like "time" and "ver", getting back relatively meaningless information. Looking closer at the computer it had the word "CITI" all over it, with an arch over the T, as in the Citibank Logo. I explained to them that that was from a bank.
Currently I am experimenting with using Disqus for comments, however it is configured that you don't have to log in or tie it to an account. Simply check the "I'd rather post as a guest" button after clicking in the spot to type in a name.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
