"Well what were you planning on doing about it then!?" asks Bina. "If you knew this was going to happen, you have to have a plan!"

"I do but - Dammit!"

"It wasn't supposed to start happening for another forty minutes! By then I was planning on having showed you how to reboot the Moment and run a basic debug routine! It must be damaged, or something else is putting stress on the mechanism."
