If this had been a film noir this would not surprise us at all, but actually this is Western Norway, 2007 and it is quite impossible to slip anything under the door. It is well insulated. Inside the envelope was a single, dirty DVD, marked "Nebular Spool", containing a few audio files (in .snd format) and a plain text file (Unix line ends).

On one of my solitary voyages to the ruins of urban landscape I found a half of portable computer buried in sand.
