This is the story of Loney Gloom, known outside the virtual world as Andy Pfifer. Andy was a pretty normal guy, like most guys are.

His younger sister would say later that it was the real world he was visiting from time to time, as a refreshment from his virtual lives. The world was made from 1s an 0s as far as Andy was concerned.
