Kurt McAllister's email to UF user zaeil
I did a little research on Reynolds Ionisers this morning. I didn't get very far. The first - and only - thing I did was to conduct a search of the databases that I can access with my Academy privileges. The results came up totally blank, but my Key's security system detected a military-grade trace; it's only because I use custom security systems that I designed myself that the trace was automatically blocked. All I can conclude is that a Reynolds Ioniser is some sort of classified military item, and that it would be a very good idea to stop poking around in such things.

Wednesday, my sister Violet and her friend Kurt came to see me. Kurt's one of the few other people in Perplex City to have a website that can be viewed from Earth. We love to talk about the letters we get from people on Earth and compare thoughts but on Wednesday Kurt seemed sort of rattled, which was odd. Apparently last week one of his Earth correspondents had asked him to find out what a "Reynolds ionizer" was. He drew a blank, but his key (the all-purpose sort of computer we use here) detected that a military trace was being used to find out who he was. He thought he'd blocked it, but he's been finding a couple of odd things on his key since then, which makes him think that maybe something got through and he's being tracked.
I put the file folder back down on Pietro Salk's desk and stared at my reflection in the window. Nothing seemed to make sense, and I'd wasted a perfectly good evening searching through a dead man's desk. I felt ashamed of myself. I went to put the file back in the file drawer, to leave everything as I found it. Which was when I noticed something. A tiny note written in pencil but definitely in Pietro Salk's handwriting. On the back of the file folder, just by the metal hanging rod. It said this:
Reynolds ionizers. Viendenbourg.
