Ha ha! What a wacked-out, fascinating little jukebox. I worry about your web-surfing habits, sarge - but thanks!

John Percival Hackworth is a nanotech engineer on the rise when he steals a copy of "A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer" for his daughter Fiona. The primer is actually a super computer built with nanotechnology that was designed to educate Lord Finkle-McGraw's daughter and to teach her how to think for herself in the stifling neo-Victorian society. But Hackworth loses the primer before he can give it to Fiona, and now the "book" has fallen into the hands of young Nell, an underprivileged girl whose life is about to change.

and you're confused ?

nyxxxx - it's an interesting collection of improvised pieces of music, some of which are unusually catchy.

The design (and, above all, the fruit) make the site look outlandish but, in reality, it isn't.

Thank you. I'd say the swedish experiment was a success although the dutch might have been a failure.

You never know. Cunning beasts, those dutch people.

Welcome to the Tutti Fruiti programs? Is that what it says? Such wisdom I think bespeaks to the success of Dutch experimentation with drugs.
