SoundByte, you are of course correct. I don't know if Christine can find anything out, but I sent her your suggestions. Hopefully knowing how the wormhole happened would allow her to shut it down. I rather expect that what she need are the technical details of how it was created and who sort of factors may have been involved in its failure. I haven't received a report from her, yet, so who knows if she has been successful in her search.

I did, however, get an odd phonecall from Gabrielle today. I picked up the phone on the third right.


Patrick. We are not amused.

"Hello? Is this Gabrielle?"

You know damn well who this is. Who do you think you are, Patrick? Are you trying to play with us?

"Play with you? I don't even know who you are, you keep saying I don't need to know."

Very funny. What you're up to isn't going to work, Patrick, it's going to take more than a little disinformation and thinly veiled threats.

"If there's anyone around here making thinly veiled threats, it's you."

Perhaps you should keep that in mind as you work, Patrick. Yes, I think definitely. What you're doing isn't working. We want results now.

And then she hung up. What was that all about?

This is Bob. Patrick, you ask, "What was that all about?" I'm damned if I know...and there is no way in hell you can give Gabrielle and her crew what they want, unless they TELL YOU what they want. They are being cryptic to the point of being self defeating. You can't please them if you don't know what they want you to look for, and right now, you clearly don't. Neither would anyone else, at least based on what we've seen so far.

Seems to me they need to level with you. NOW, and at least tell you who they are and what they expect of you, rather than just letting you stumble around out there without any assistance. Unless secrecy and deniability mean more to them than results (in which case Gabrielle and her pals would have to be tied to the Bush administration and other domestic and/or foreign government operations, because that's the typical mentality of a bunch of government security operatives).
Good luck.
