Got caught up in some reading, and then in designing a character for next weekend's tabletop game.

So teeensy bit distracted for a bit, in other words.

Tabletop? Do people still do that? Egads.

We were visiting the colony to see if anyone wanted to work at the Count's abode, right?

How far away is the colony from our current position?

Right. I forgot we were dredging a lake for a minute there.

Still. Couldn't hurt to get a crew sorted to go to the Count. Pretty sure we could make a tidy sum selling books and paper.

Going into publishing is probably going to be more profitable in an urban center, especially since the Count seems to be the classic 'land rich, cash poor' type. Though it occurs to me that we probably should radio ahead and get the folks back at the ship to find and maintain the sub before we get back, because that might take a while.

Well, main reason I want to work with the Count on this is because the dude is an absolute wealth of readily available local knowledge. We can work out the actual logistics of sales later. Getting the team set up in the first place is gonna take a hot minute, especially if they're working on the side to maintain the Count's abode.

Apparently the local pre-funerary usages include a moment of silence as the guests gather.

Yeah, it has been pretty silent.

Apologies, I've been caught up with... um...

Alright, in all honesty, cards on the table, I downloaded a really neat game called Mindustry and have been messing around with that in the free time that I have.

...

...yeah, sometimes I'm easily distracted.

No problem. I have the attention span of a ferret myself.

Assuming Piper doesn't stop me, Felix will express interest in setting aside a block of time with Arkady to talk about immaterial matters.

A fair amount of that conversation will probably be Arkady shrugging his shoulders and admitting that he's wondering how he's going to explain it to the inevitable conclave of his colleagues, too.

I'll save the surprise for then, but honestly I think Felix has managed to glean an insight that may very well flabbergast Arkady.

Also, would it be theoretically possible to build and maintain a greenhouse that mimics certain climates so we could grow crops that might be less amenable to hydroponic gardens? Like banana stems and cocoa trees? Felix wants to try his hand at exotic gardening and he has something of a hankering for a chocolate banana split.

They grow bananas in the Bronx, so it should be possible to do whatever we like if we're willing to do a bit of climate control in the greenhouses.
