MINERVA: Episodic, Single-Player Half-Life 2

Excuse me, I seem to be having terrible problems with my steam installation -

"My steam just isn't working properly."

"Have you tried adjusting the valves?"

"That might work. Thanks!"

Georgetown Steam Plant, just south of Seattle. With complicated opening arrangements that mean it's only open to the public the first Sunday of each month, it's absolutely worth visiting for anyone interested in dusty old industrial machinery.

In other news, I've also acquired a midget computer. Embarrasingly, in the past I've bought entire generations of desktop PCs and dedicated GPUs with lower technical specifications than this. It's currently in use prototyping the next generation of blog-beast-oriented web systems. The wonders shall never cease.

One of the gag pages for april fools years back had an add for Durandal B Gone, and Minerva's first bit was loosely based on Silent Cartographer.

Fair to say everybody's favorite metastable madman influenced our lady of perpetual peevishness.
