Its hard to sleep with this strange foreign object in your skull.
A chum on Shadowland wrote that it only takes a few days to get used to,
so you're not _too_ worried. But its still strange, this new, expensive
hole in your head.
With a large cup of coffee at your side (insomnia doesn't stop you
from felling tired, after all), you decide to re-read some of the files
you got off the Shadowland "Newbie Decker" sections.
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Matrix (Decker's Edition); Surfing the
Matrix; Virtual Realities -- all good books, but not specific enough.
Even Scott Yanoff III's guide isn't what you want.
You want a comprehensive listing of _everything_ a Cyberspace
Cowboy might be interested in. A list describing places like Shadowland
that anybody with a terminal can access, _and_ describing the
meeting-places hidden in cyberspace that only a decker worth his 'trodes
can get into.
You want the fabled NeGuTTNe: The 'Net Guide To The 'Net.
