The Perplex City Banking Corporation The Sentinel



26 Apr 06

Kurt sorts through his mail and finds one or two intesresting things. For instance, he urges everyone to check out part two of Oistin Meade's psychology survey - this time, it's a conceptual art challenge.

(Kurt doesn't have any idea about what Von submitted in the personality test, by the way.)

There's a brief nod of respect towards the Thirteenth Labour guys, then a huge swerve away from personal relationship issues. Kurt, Kurt, Kurt... if anybody needs a psychology test, it's you...

Oistin's Research

24 Apr 06

Anna's colleague, Oistin Meade, has released his psychological study - more like a personality test, really - and is asking people to participate.

Take a couple of minutes and visit his little questionnaire here to do your bit, and maybe Oistin will hand over that Ceretin 6 research paper at last.

(Be warned - Oistin is definitely on the eccentric side of genius.)

Polygon Marathon Expected to Break Attendance Records

18 Apr 06

The city's biggest marathon is coming up - as well as the parallel 'puzzle marathon', which sounds as testing for the mind as for the body. The police, of course, are gearing up for what will be another major crowd-control exercise.

Cognivia Shareholder Report

10 Apr 06

Here's the text of the Cognivia report - more of an update than a full-on annual report, fortunately, though it does include one or two hints that all is not well in the land of cognitive enhancement.

There's also a tantalising last line regarding the latest generation of Ceretin: "Proof copies of the forthcoming C6 research paper will be available to CE professionals in April 269."

Tippy's revenge

10 Apr 06

Cube Hunter 'badbarry' emails Tippy, suggesting that she should give us Helix Hesh's password to his private files. Tippy, in the spirit of gleeful vengeance, duly obliges (albeit in a slightly elliptical way).

A quick bit of guesswork reveals the password to be appassionato. And that gives us access to Hesh's copy of the recent Cognivia shareholder report. To take a peek at some of Helix Hesh's other files you'll need to log in to the Hesh Intranet file system with the password s3cur1tyh0l3.

Cognivia Drops on Report

3 Apr 06

Sentinel news in brief: Shares in Cognivia dropped 7% today on the release of the company's shareholder report. Analysts say that the pharamceutical giant has failed to show any true innovation lately, instead relying on incremental improvements to its existing products or new, niche drugs with very limited potential markets.

Cause of death

3 Apr 06

Kurt gives his own analysis of the police records regarding Cymbalisty's death. He's particularly suspicious of the 'possible black market Ceretin' found in Cymbalisty's blood. Surely the police would be able to recognise most black market versions?

Having said that, Kurt's still not convinced that this is proof of foul play. Nor does he know how he and Anna can proceed in their investigation.

At least this hiatus gives him more time to go running and hang out with Miranda. (The lad deserves a break.)
