From Episode 23:

“You need to come with me,” Hiram declared. RIGHT NOW!

“But…” Jay started, but Poof—they were gone!

It took a few seconds for the natural disorientation of traveling to and from the Real World and Cyberspace to dissipate, and a still recovering Boomer said just a little shakily: “Silverthorn’s—I think.”

    Ines: Poof you? You must be kidding! You are one of two AR folk who regularly visit and comment [sigh]. Still, a happy note, our daily hits are slooowly trending up without linking from our AR blog!

    Bob: Careful – your caricature is not too difficult to conjure up. BTW: One “Pops in” and when one leaves – “Poof, they’re gone!”
