Okay, we've got SPDR probing things and causing weird text to appear on Dana's web pages. That's pretty thorughly established.
Something not clearly established is exactly what SPDR is doing, or what SPDR's output means.
A frequent theme in SPDR's output is "memory sectors:" master, primary, teritary. I'd like to point out that I've never seen SPDR list a secondary sector, a rather notable omission.
My question is this: Is there a connection between the sector that SPDR probes and the AI or data getting dumped? For example, does a "primary sector" probe always dump MAYDAY text, does a "master sector" probe always give Operator monologue, does a terinary sector probe cause something we haven't quite been able to catch? Or am I completely off-base here?
This is a guess, and I'm typing it up only because I haven't been able to check it; now that I'm looking for it, I simply haven't been seeing SPDR take a dump. So... help appreciated.
If this seems to be supported, the page will remain; if I'm shown to be thoroughly wrong, which I expect to be, please trash this page and remove the link I put to it.

The SPDR is an automated sub-routine designed to identify, defragment and repair Melissa's programming code. The Computer text revealing probes and such are in effect the SPDR's log. Since it is searching for Melissa's coding, the various memory sectors would be an indication of the relation of the data being accessed to the core Melissa programming. Master and primary are most likely both the Queen, as it would contain unalterable system data (the master sector) and also less necessary communications, memory and personality routines (primary). Tertiary would be the Flea, as it is another automated sub-routine of limited importance to Melissa's existence. Secondary memory sectors undoubtedly refer to the Sleeping Princess, which is inaccessible, explaining the lack of messages from that sector.
Presuming, of course, that I'm actually onto something. --UserWindrider 13:20, 29 Jul 2004 (PDT)
