Two people (one rarely understandable) discuss network security.
Syncs with fe-13-a:84 (you can hear "... that's not an option..." at 0:40 there)
A: I'm worried we're gonna come up short. How much line do you have?
B: We've got thirty-one [unintelligible] meters, but it's just fucked [unintelligible].
A: [unintelligible] yeah, but then we still gotta run north, to link up. We should figure on 42 kilometers.
B: Yeah, [unintelligible]. I get it. I always said - fiber optics is a supply problem just waiting to happen.

A: Hell, you're using an opening to call me right now, and you didn't tell me?

B: Oh, come on, people drop out - they change their minds.
A: Orwell, I've [unintelligible] your terminal now. You need to run. Understand? Run!
