Not too eventful of a chat:
|04:10PM jdonahue: Hello again, Mr. Tidwell.
04:11PM ttidwell: Hello John. How are you?
04:11PM jdonahue: Fine. I just wanted to tell you that I won't be defecting to the Restorers anytime soon, so you might want to remove me from your list.
04:12PM ttidwell: OK. I will. That's no problem. I managed to get the list when I was in IdelTech. i don't even thinks marcus knows yet!
04:13PM jdonahue: Well, I wouldn't go tooting your horn to everyone, because Marcus is bound to find out.
04:13PM ttidwell: Oh I don't care about him! What can he do?! He was stupid enough to hire me!
04:14PM jdonahue: Well, I guess there's nobody to trust in the world when people start posing as good samaritans; How do we know who to trust when the only good people we know are liars?
04:16PM ttidwell: Indeed you are correct. Most people in the world are liars. But you must choose wisely who to believe - that's the game of life.
04:16PM jdonahue: Since when did life become a game? I blame Milton-Bradley.
04:17PM ttidwell: haha!!!
04:17PM jdonahue: I have a question. How do you know what TOBI can do? As a lowly security guard, I doubt you had access to him.
04:19PM ttidwell: Ahh, well that's where you're wrong. I was a security gurad, but I had complete access to the whole complex, and was often required to work nights.
04:19PM jdonahue: Wasn't TOBI password-protected? There had to be some security measures.
04:20PM ttidwell: When it runs, it displays its output on several computer monitors - each showing different elements of his search - images, names, various databases
04:21PM jdonahue: But weren't those monitors in sealed, keypad protected doors? Oh, wait, you probably had the codes.
04:21PM ttidwell: Exactly!
04:22PM jdonahue: Those audio tapes you sent to some people...were they a serious request by Marcus or were you using them to try and convince us that our boss is a bad person?
04:24PM jdonahue: ??
04:24PM ttidwell: Sorry John - I lost my connection there for a minute
04:24PM jdonahue: That's alright. Happens to me too.
04:25PM jdonahue: 04:22PM jdonahue: Those audio tapes you sent to some people...were they a serious request by Marcus or were you using them to try and convince us that our boss is a bad person?
04:27PM jdonahue: Are you going to answer that?
04:29PM jdonahue: Mr. Tidwell?!?!
04:30PM ttidwell: Sorry - I just had to answer the phone.
04:30PM jdonahue: OK.
04:31PM ttidwell: The tapes were genuine.
04:31PM jdonahue: I know. But did you give them out on Mr. Thesburg's orders?
04:32PM ttidwell: My doorbell's ringing - be back in a minute!
04:32PM jdonahue: All right.
04:39PM ttidwell: Sorry John - been busy tonight. Another buddy coming round to finalise plans for the protest.
04:40PM jdonahue: Oh yes.
04:40PM jdonahue: Who was at the door?
04:40PM ttidwell: I did not give them out on Marcus orders - he asked me to file them away on a server. I used this request as an excuse to get in touch with an employee and pass the recordings on to them
04:40PM jdonahue: Oh.
04:40PM ttidwell: See above.
04:41PM jdonahue: OK
04:41PM ttidwell: I listened to the recordings and decided that it might be wise to get a copy to a third party.
04:41PM jdonahue: What for?
04:42PM ttidwell: Just to be held in case they were needed.
04:42PM jdonahue: I have a question for you. Do you really think that TOBI will be more of a threat to the people of America, than a proper tool for protecting said people?
04:43PM ttidwell: That depends on who you believe. But yes - I think he will be more of a threat than a help.
04:44PM jdonahue: I see.
04:44PM jdonahue: Do you think that if TOBI wasn't used to "spy" on average Americans, it should be used for good? Or do you think TOBI should not exist.
04:46PM ttidwell: I think it is like a nuclear weapon - I would rather see that type of power never created in the first place.
04:46PM jdonahue: I see. But it is inevitable, in my view.
04:47PM jdonahue: Reading the Restorers' mission, I wonder, are you willing to stoop to the lowest levels to ruin Ideltech's reputation and TOBI's viability?
04:48PM ttidwell: That depends on what *you* consider to be the lowest levels.
04:48PM ttidwell: Shoot I gotta go again - more people at the door. I'll chat to you soon
04:48PM jdonahue: Dirty play. Spies.
04:48PM jdonahue: OK. Bye
04:48PM ttidwell: Not spies. No. Dirty play? What do you call dirty play?
04:49PM ttidwell: Good bye for now.
Kind of solidifies his stance and shows us that if you just tell him, "I don't want to work for you," he'll respect your decision.
