I finished typing the password into the system that I had spent days trying to hack into. Although I had spent most of my life hacking into systems, this system gave me a lot of trouble, but I had expected as much. It was a virtual reality, VR, system after all, and they were some of the most secure programs in the entire world.
VR had exploded onto the market about twenty years ago, the first one created by a London company for a gaming warehouse in Utah. After that, they popped up everywhere. They had started out as games, yes, but not much time passed before high class society used VR for vacations, meetings, business, etc. Ever since the water levels started to rise, and the snow started to melt, the usual vacationing spots closed down and VR became the answer.
