A Short Story of a Boy, A Girl, and a Journey Through Wormholes

In the interwebs...far away, there was a girl in an old computer tower...waiting for her geek to come and reprogram the hard-drive to save her. 

Perhaps the geek should have relized his journey would be difficult, since he would have to travel to far away places to find the right wires and battle the sands of time. After-all, this is no role playing game...this is real!

Needing to cross the universe, he knew what he had to do. He called for back up and ordered  Linux MPP (Massively Parallel Processor) supercomputer for parallel programming. After hours of learning the multi-threaded programming, he was ready. With a flip of the power-strip, all systems were a go. With his mixed tape of The Orb, Lords of Acid, Devo, The Pixies, Fugazi, The Smashing Pumpkins, King Crimson, Queen, and Massive Attack all set up, he prepared with a deep breath and said...LET THE JOURNEY BEGIN!

Finding the tower code would be easy using his new super-power...he pushed his visor to the side, drank a beer and focused on finding the message...SAVE ME SAVE ME SAVE ME...flashed across his screen. Where was this message coming from? Digging deeper into the codes, he discovered it was transmitted in an unknown code, being bounced off far away planets. Now, to find these plants!

The first signal was coming from Jupiter.
