Going to Hackito Ergo Sum 2011

I've bought a ticket for HES 2011 in Paris, where I will meet some fellow spies.

It's now become completely certain that I am being followed. I used my sources in the Russian government and discovered that Nikolai is ex-KGB ! The guy who is following me around is Yamato Ryoichi, aka the Dot Slasher, an infamous assassin from the Japanese Yakuza.

At the HES conference, I need to pass the information on DFS to my colleagues, in case something happens to me.

Nikolai Grigorev is KGB !

Nikolai is a mysterious guy. I've tried to dig up information about his past, but all I could find is that he used to work for the USSR army and was in control of the first spacestation ever launched. After that, his record is wiped.

After tracking his movements for a couple days, I found out that he makes regular visits to some
(apparently) abandoned building on the other side of the city. Last night, I broke into that building and discovered that it's a Russian safehouse !

I discovered official documents from the KGB(!) that indicate there is more going on with DFS than anyone thought. The goods produced in the spacestation are in fact classified and illegal weapons of mass destruction ! Cameron is on the KGB payroll aswell. The reason he doesn't work on the factory module code is not because he is a smarty pants, but because the KGB is developing the code instead.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any code of either the factory module or the orbital module. It has become a high priority for me to break into this orbital module and destabilize the spacestation's orbit so that this factory burns up in the atmosphere.

Before I left, I noticed a group picture on a desk and recognized the asian guy who is following me. I wonder how Nikolai and that guy are related ? Is he also KGB ?

Being watched

Some Asian guy is watching me. Ever since I got back from vacation, there has been a black van parked in my street. Now that I think of it, I should never have bought Mazur's computer with my own credit card, especially since it's trivial to track me down this way.

Under normal circumstances, I would have proceeded more carefully. But this is my first job in months and I was eager to start. Too eager it seems, since I've attracted the interest of some people with a black van.

I only need to find out how Nikolai's spacestation module works and then I can disappear again.

an act of non-random kindness

During the wine-binge at Laurent's place, he also gossiped to me about Mazur. It seems Mazur got into quite some problems with DFS after his laptop was stolen. Because the theft was his fault (he wasn't supposed to take the laptop with him as a junior employee), he now has to buy a new computer out of his own pocket.
Laurent informed me that Mazur is actually married and has 5 kids at home in India. He sends most of his paycheck there and has almost no money. Now he's almost starving himself to save up enough money to buy a computer.

That sucks ! I wasn't aware of this when I had the laptop stolen. It's not like I can give back his old computer now... Instead, I've decided to buy him a new computer anonymously. Today I went to, ordered a computer in his name and paid for it with my credit card.

To reward myself for this awesome gesture, I'm taking a week off.

Laurent Badeau

Last week's wine-tasting lesson was cancelled. Laurent seems to have scored with Maria.
After tonight's lesson, Laurent invited me back home to thank me for suggesting the date.

I accepted gladly and met them at his home, where Maria was also waiting. We had some snacks, played some boardgames and had a LOT of wine. I guess that's the advantage of knowing a wine-expert with his own wine cellar.

While both of them were passed out drunk, I logged in to the DFS VPN from Laurent's home computer and made a copy of all his files. Some time ago, Laurent accidently deleted all his files while drunk. From then on, he keeps backups. He told me once that he regularly emails his software to a hotmail account as a backup. I asked him if he thought hotmail could be trusted with his code and he just smiled back, saying that noone would figure out the hidden data in his backup.
