There will be no Fed2 Star next weekend. I have been promised delivery of my new team of newsdroids in the next few days, but it will take a bit of work to get them configured the way I want.

The model I have ordered gives me a great deal of control over their personality, and I will be able to tweak the settings to modify the droids’ behaviour to my liking. It’s a fine line: on the one hand I want them to show some initiative and independent thought, so I can send them out in search of stories. I don’t want to have to spend my time micro-managing them. But on the other hand, I don’t want them to be so independent that they rebel against me, like the last set of treacherous ex-waitdroids.

I should have the brand new droids up and running and raring to go in about ten days, so they can help me publish the next issue of the Star on July 2.
