- Almond Roca.

Yeah, I know

what your favorites are.

- Angela Bennett!

- Who is it?

- FedEx.

- Coming.

Thank you for using our reservation

service. Have a pleasant flight.

Line five, please.

- Oh, I have another one going out.

- Okay. Here you go, ma'am.

And here's your virus, Dale.

- Can I use your pen?

- Yeah, sure.

This is a nice place.


- Have a nice day, ma'am.

- You too.

Mozart's Ghost!

The hottest band on the Internet.

- Cathedral Software.

- Dale Hessman, please.

Please hold.

- Hello.

- Hi, it's Angela.

Angela? FedEx had you signing

for that disk three minutes ago.

- What took you so long?

- I was having way too much fun...

with this Mozart's Ghost.

By the way, I sent you a whopper

of a virus for your hall of fame.

Just be a little careful

with the escape button.

Look, here's the problem.

Pop yourself into concert information.

All right.

Houston Utilities. Dale, I think

you took a wrong turn here.

Not quite Ticketmaster, is it?

See anything unusual?

No, looks like a normal web page to me,

except for that...

little icon at the bottom

of the screen.

Click on it, and then

press control-shift.

- My God.

- So, what do you make of all this?


It's a programming glitch.

It's a futzed keystroke that sent you

the wrong Internet address.

Last night it sent me to Amtrak's

central mainframe and the Mayo Clinic.

Neither of them

are on the same subnet.

Angela, I've accessed

a system I shouldn't have.

If someone gets ahold of that disk,

they'd have an awful lot of power.

Why don't you just crawl in there,

find the program error and delete it?

Not quite ready to do that yet.

Look, what's your day like tomorrow?

Oh, no. No.

I'm going on my first vacation

in six years.

I just confirmed my reservation.
