(In a discussion about how advanced the technology will advance, Kiri agrees there is no limit and uses her work computer up on the base as an example of how far we have to go. For example, she uses a small cube to possibly hold trillions of gigs of memory.) 

Skip: but let me ask a question.

Kiri: uh-huh.

Skip: is there any limit to this?

(regarding the technical limits of future technology)

Russ: no.

Kiri: no.

Russ: look what they've got up there? We can't even touch it.

Skip: I wasn't thinking about what they have, I was thinking about our advances in technology.

Russ: I think we're really going their direction but at the same time so are they. And so, computers on Hades Base are going I'm sure at the same speed we are as far as progression.

Kiri: oh we're going hell for leather, we're always constantly working on things.

Russ: sure.

Skip: uh-huh.

Kiri: we use, we have little cubes that we use that we can literally pick up and pull out and that's storage and that holds, I don't know how many millions of or trillions of gigs of memory. Little tiny cube.

Russ: we're at 50 (laughs).

Kiri: and my laptop that I carry around, it's only about yea thick and about yea big....stands about yea big, it has the equivalent and I guesstimate to probably, the CPU's probably about a million or even higher? The RAM is probably about maybe 500,000, as I said I'm guesstimating, 500,000 gigs. It has a solid-state generator, it has a projection scanner, you name it, it has it and I need it.

Russ: what do you hook up to the net with on it? A T-1 connection?

Kiri: T-1? That's slow. What is it? A T-3 is faster isn't it?

Russ: multiple T-3's are really fast. That's if you are maxed out at multiple T-3's right now.

Kiri: uh-huh but that's irrelevant to us.

Russ: uh-huh.

Kiri: we get instant access, instead of the waiting I can type in, and if I use a uplink that's connected to the sixth dimension, news from Sirius. Real-time communication with Sirius instead of the distance of 6 1/2 light years, real instant communication, real-time talk.

Russ: yeah that's way beyond our capabilities.

Kiri: and that's not done by using regular transmission, that's by using the gap in between the dimensions and stuff.

Russ: we can talk across the world now in instant real-time but we can't talk across space in real-time yet.

Kiri: no, you are transmitting directly with a normal transmissional signal.
