Tommy loved to read and he loved his computer. It was a sixteen core Linux box.
Everyone called him "geek" but Tommy didn't care. They are all stupid anyway.
He'd found the paperback at Deep Discount Books. The fifties artwork caught his eye so he dropped $2.95. The stories were kind of good and kind of lame. Obviously this guy had never heard of Moore's Law.
Setting the book down Tommy went to his computer and started to code.
Ten minutes later, overhead, without any fuss, the stars were going out. Tommy didn't notice until the Sun went dark.
