delta came back just now, and when i wouldn't let him in he started
yelling about needing his copyrighted song lyrics that were left in the
space, and threatened to call the authorities.  because they were
copyrighted, this was supposed to somehow get him entry into the space.

this reduces my optimism for his willingness to enter a beautiful
montage where he becomes a hacker.
