I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the Book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed, but I must admit that such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold my Myst book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written. -- Atrus

Whark Aircrafts

Yesterday I watched Monsters vs. Aliens (2009) and was startled to see what looked like a whark-shaped aircraft.

I hit IMDb to scan the trivia section, wondering if perhaps it was Myst-related, but instead I discovered that it was designed after a real aircraft used by NASA called the Guppy beginning in 1965.

Still cool.

Nothing new to report otherwise.  iota has been unavailable, so no recent progress there.  I am anxiously awaiting my Mysterium and Obduction t-shirts.  Based on the schedule Cyan sent out,  they'll be sending the t-shirts out mid-August.  So hopefully it will be here for my birthday on August 15!

Looks like Mysterium has a great schedule of events, too, so I hope all who go will have a great time!
