Davia the devil? I don’t want to sound mean, but I shouldn’t be in charge of the IT department of the house while Fran is gone. Worse than that, Boris wants to tap into the corporate domain and make us here at the estate, a sub-domain. Thurston Richenbach is old but still in charge of his wits and fortune. But, he doesn’t get out much any more. Slowly, the third floor has become the corporate settings for meetings of the board and staff which is in NY. No wonder Fran beat it. She’s returning shortly and Lisa needs to get with it or they need to hire an IT professional full time. - Why so many kids here? Mr. Dupuis is part of the financial team for the Richenbach fortune. Consider there are 27 full time accountants in NY and you get the picture. But Thurston did stop me on the stairs to ask about the busted laptop. He’s elderly but sharp. “I heard you found a broken laptop recently Davia?” He also reads minds. “Yes, Sir, I found it in the Baxter room and took it up stairs to salvage for parts as it was too far gone.” He nodded but didn’t press the issue. “I’m glad you gave it to security. I really need Jim or Pete to come back soon as we have to shore up security once again do to some recent changes.” I escaped that one, I didn’t want to have to tell him it was the Dupuis kids that broke it even if he knows already. - Did I shirk my detective duties by not investigating? Yes, I did. I have too much chemistry work to do besides get ready to move my “tech room” upstairs to make way for more offices. - Several folks mentioned the detective ten commandments and further explanation of what Peter called the “five doors of detective work.” I’m just learning myself. If you would like to see private pages on this site, write a quick note saying so and perhaps we can expand it.
