A young man stands in his BEDROOM. It just so happens that today, the 13th of April, will be the day that humanity would be nearly wiped out be a storm of meteors. That is the destiny of humanity, doomed by the pretense of a game called "SBURB." But is such a fate inescapable? This young man's name is David. No, we are not going to do the lame name gag. Maybe later when we meet the trolls. For now, though, you happened to come in as David was starting to chat with one of his friends on an hacked old version of the online calling program "Pyke." Lets see the conversation.

VC: Hey Andrea : D
SK: Hiya. :3
VC: How's it going?
SK: Pretty well, actually! That game you ordered for everyone came in today!
VC: Wait, really? Sweet!
SK: Yeah! My computer's been being used all day, though, so I'm just now getting around to installing the server disk.
VC: Alright, so it'll probably be a bit, then?
SK: Yeah. By the time you get around to installing the client disk onto your laptop and it finishes, mine'll probably only be a bit away from being finished with the server.
VC: Well, just remember the plan.
SK: Yeah, I still think you have it completely too complicated.
VC: What's so complicated about forcing a four-player game to have a six-player session?
SK: ...
VC: ...
SK: ......
VC: ......
SK: .........
VC: I can do this dot game all day, you know. I don't work tonight.
SK: Yeah, I know :3 You should probably go check the table to see if your copy of the game came in today!
VC: uh... Andrea?
SK: Yesh?
VC: ... Nevermind. I'll head down and check the table.

You're guessing that she probably assumed that yours had arrived in the mail today when she said "By the time you get around to installing the client disk onto your laptop and it finishes, mine'll probably only be a bit away from being finished with the server." Now, time to go get that package. First, though, look around your room.
