PRAISE BE TO JUAN VALDEZ, there’s coffee in Cryptosphere Global HQ again!

We hope you’ll forgive us, kittens, for our late links on this fine morn afternoon, but we really couldn’t get going until a passing drone took pity on us and parachuted us some lovely espresso beans. Thanks, random, probably state-sponsored drone! You have our loyalty forever, buzzing skygod!

We are tanked up, jittery, and ready to rumble now, so here are your links to make sure you don’t do anything as radical as unplugging during lunch hour. I KID, I KID!

Nobody gets an hour anymore.
