Characters: me, him

I was watching someone use a piece of software that reconstructed timelines... it looked like video editing. It was showing thousands of clips that were being manipulated all at once in some kind of semi-automated way.
me: "What is this program called?"
I was shown a very dull-looking brown box that looked like the kinds of packages productivity software came in during the 80s. The title of the program was "Ionic Multiplier".
Note That isn't a popular phrase on the internet, but has two mentions in the context of chemistry and physics.
Later a man was showing me some technical specs and had Clear Gigabit Ram.
me: "What does clear mean in this context?"
him: (shocked?) "How could you not know?"
me: "I'm sorry, I don't. Is it optically transparent, like can you see through it?"
him: "No. It specifically relates to the way memory access is performed."
Beyond that, I couldn't get it explained in a way that I could understand.

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?
