Once he launched the console again, he had to reconnect to the management server…a small price to pay for the convenience of a refreshed console view:


“Thanks, Registry Man!” said the citizen. But Registry Man was nowhere to be found, as he was off attacking corruption in other workstations.

What a true hero and fashion genius.
