Ack, poor SAIROC! So many awesome plot hooks, though. Reminds me I need to catch up on Know Evil.

So i guess Ord is a tad bit annoyed with the party. Anyone have an idea of what to do when buying blueprints for stuff that cost expensive?

"Expensive+", followed by "Expensive++". Basically add an extra 10,000 credits each step up after Expensive.

Check this shit out! If you could do psychosurgery at range this is would be total Eclipse Phase.

That's probably what the world of Eclipse Phase was like 50 years before the Fall - until they disabled remote brain hacking.

Well, cyberbrains you can still hack like that if you can break their firewalls.

cut from Gatecrashing: http://mobunited.wordpress.com/2012/09/19/cut-from-gatecrashing/

I can see why it was cut.
It's a good rideup, but it's far, far from what I envision as Eclipse Phase.  I think it would go gunso really fast.

So, after hearing frequent mentions of the movie The Room on the podcast, I finally saw some clips of it.
.....
Holy shit.
Honestly, I think my mind is still trying to process what I saw. I'm thinking about seeing it in it's entirety, but it occurred to me: my god, it could very well be a basilisk hack. If I see the whole thing, it'll rewire my brain.
It might turn me into...I have no fucking idea.
