It was after the Millenia Wars. Bill Gates was dead unprepared for the backslash after the leap year crash. Frat boys, media whores and the Humongus pillaged what was left. Most of the Internet running Linux and Unix servers was still intact. Rumors about a walled city with a 12 volt solar grid were confirmed by scraps of E-mail from an NT server that managed to boot. Those that returned were changed, different somehow. No matter how they tried to put it off as the deranged visions of old hippies or the mad ramblings of the psychotic ones the man still burns in Gigsville, the last outpost of Black Rock City.
