Comic #3801

1 Iki Piki: As odd as it is to say, Serron has a point. How does a virtual computer running on our ship's computer run faster than the actual computer?
2 Spanners: Remember our computer steals CPU cycles from computers in the past. It has almost infinite resources.
3 Spanners: It can simulate millions of multiple copies of itself in parallel.
4 Iki Piki: Why can't it do this while we're in normal non-cyber space?
4 Spanners: Windows Security Policy settings.
