1. I really wonder about that. Part of me thinks he's not going to become CEO, just sit in the sidelines and let Alan run it, using his Powers of Stock Ownership = What I Say Goes.

2. Pretty much. I'm not sure about mismanagement as it sounds like the company did well, but definitely years of the company being run in a way contrary to what they want. And good luck taking a huge international company with a lot of shareholders and running it like a charity. Several of my characters in various fics have suggested to Sam that he'd do better to start his own and run it however he wants-- from the one who's simply a skeptic that he can change a company that big, to the one who wants him to become competition and take Encom down.

3./4. Of course we all know I'm difficult about Dillinjr, so, yeah. I got nothing.

5. Yeah, pretty much what I've been saying, only shorter.

6. Ah, good point. In a basement, I might have my doubts, but then again, my experience is with a phone that is nearly ten years old and has hit the floor a few too many times to be a credible source on the possibility of signal, even within my own network (it took going somewhere with my mom, who uses the same company but has a newer phone, to realize that maybe there aren't issues with the company's coverage... just with my phone...). Although it might be a far stretch to assume there's somebody sitting out there monitoring the airwaves around the arcade, just waiting for something to happen... but I suppose Disney might run with something like that.

7./8. Don't know enough about these sources to comment.

9. Again... I'm glad you can make the same points without running off on a tangent. I need to just start quoting you and adding "this" and everybody will still get the point.

10. See 7./8.

11. Another possibility. And of course you've seen my "Evil Alan" monologue, so, yup. Although I'm not entirely convinced-- despite writing that possibility for fun-- that Alan's not too goody-goody/straightlaced/sensible for that sort of thing. Flynn? Totally would (see Clu). And of course seeing discussion in other threads I've started recently, you might even argue he did-- if sticking your head in the sand and allowing bad shit to happen because you somehow convince yourself that's the best way to proceed, counts.

What do you want? I'm busy.

Program, please!

Chaos.... good news.
