Joint Post // Video

[The video opens with Mordin and Peter smiling at the camera, apparently in a lab of some sort. Given the height difference between them, Mordin is stooping a bit and Peter is kind of on his tiptoes to get them both in frame.]

Have announcement to make. Culmination of joint project. Upgrade to communicators. Could change the way Port-outs are handled.

[Peter rolls a small, penny-sized disc across his knuckles, then catches it between his first two fingers and holds it closer to the camera.]

What we have here is a sensor which, when attached to your communicator --

[He peels a little film off the back of the disc with his fingernail, grabs a comm from offscreen, then sticks the disc to the back of the comm, turning it so viewers can see how it’s attached.]

-- is designed to send out a signal to our computers here at the moment you get exPorted.

Calibrated to particular form of energy emitted by Porter. Very distinct. Records on communicator as well as sending signal. Should eliminate uncertainty after disappearance.

Right. [He nods.] No more worries whether your friend has been sent back to their home or if they’ve vanished off the face of the Earth for, well, an entirely different reason. Or that’s the idea, anyway.

[As Mordin taps his chin:] Of course, can’t entirely account for Lachesis. No way to tell if she’d be able or inclined to sabotage upgrade. More research required.

That’s where you guys come in.

Asking for test volunteers. Would receive upgrade, allow us to see whether sensor works after Port-out.[Pause, blink.] Obviously, don’t hope to see you Ported away. Unless you want to return home. In that case, wish you luck.

[It sounds like Mordin’s getting on a roll, so Peter interjects hastily:] Either way, if you’re interested, speak up in the comments or you can reach us privately through either one of our comms. And thanks for participating in the scientific method. [Yes, he said that in complete earnestness.]
professorlionface: (How very interesting...)

Ah! Quite an interesting development. I'd volunteer myself, but unfortunately I won't be able to pick one of these sensors up for a few weeks.
incywincyhero: (peter: thoughtful)

Right, I heard you're out of town. How's the trip going, Hank?
professorlionface: (Um.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-09-09 05:42 am (UTC)(link)
It's hot. But the diplomatic end has been going easily enough, I suppose. Bridge-building and the whole shebang.
incywincyhero: (spidey: so then I said)

That's good to hear. But hey, if there's anyone I'd trust to be one of our imPort goodwill ambassadors, it's you.
professorlionface: (Primping and preening!)

I appreciate the vote of confidence! I'd like to think I have some experience in the topic, given how things were back home, but we're hoping this tour will help makes us at least a few friends out in the world.
incywincyhero: (spidey: eureka!)

[personal profile] incywincyhero 2012-09-10 10:29 pm (UTC)(link)
We sure could use them. You guys are doing good work.

How're Max and Bobbi holding up?
professorlionface: (Well...that's something.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-09-11 02:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Max is doing fine. Optimistic, even. It's a little infectious.

Bobbi, well, after Sunday...she could use the break.

Yeah, I can imagine. It's ... [Long pause.] You know, I wish I could have done something before it happened, but thinking it over I'm not sure I could have. Funny how you can know someone pretty well, you think, and it's still not enough.
professorlionface: (Hmm?)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-09-22 04:16 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't think any of us doesn't wish there was more we could have done. Last time I spoke to him, he insisted that everything was alright, but I can't help thinking that... Maybe I wasn't attentive enough?
incywincyhero: (spidey: moody b/w)

[personal profile] incywincyhero 2012-09-23 10:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Seems like there's this really fine line between supportive and intrusive, and none of us know how to walk the tightrope.
professorlionface: (I'll have to think about this.)

video;

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-09-24 01:17 am (UTC)(link)
Well, it's a precarious balance. Overplay your contribution, and you may only cause more damage. Go other other way, and, well...here we are.
incywincyhero: (spidey: tugging neck)

Y'know, normally I'm the last person to suggest getting all official about things, but sometimes I wonder if it wouldn't hurt to get some kind of training on how to deal with stuff like this. I mean, we're Avengers, right? We should be on top of this stuff. Especially considering that this, uh-- [The words come out in a rush:] --isn't the first time one of us has had a rough time and then made things rough for everyone else. Ahem.
professorlionface: (Sigh.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-10-01 07:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Knowing how to spot the warning signs is one thing, but working to manage the issue before it becomes worse is another. I'm not sure how we'd go about with that, really.

Any chance I could have a spare to tinker with? You know, one for use and another to play around with.
professorlionface: (I find myself brimming with thoughts.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-09-11 02:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Relatively simple design, I imagine. Just the sensor and the transmitter?

How bad were the production costs?
professorlionface: (I must take this data down immediately.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-09-12 03:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, this is exactly the sort of innovation the company's looking for, so I doubt Amanda would mind footing the bill. Porter energy must be a difficult thing to capture, however. You must have been clocking overtime trying to catch the moments when and where it arose!
professorlionface: (I'll take your word for it.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2012-09-14 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
When was that, exactly?

Though it does raise the question of how this may respond to false-positives. I've had two cases over the summer where she's whisked me away somewhere that wasn't home.
professorlionface: (Um.)

Back in June, just after prom. I was suddenly stranded in San Francisco with a couple of others, but we made our way back eventually.

I'm not entirely privy to the catalyst, but it didn't seem like an especially isolated incident. Groups of imPorts suddenly found themselves scattered across the world, with our communicators disabled.

Maybe she was bored. Maybe she wanted to shake things up, get us back on task.
