, as you may recall
at the end of the last episode, our trio of Technocrats, now re-branded as Les Trois Mousquetaires were smote down by the Kings Guards. Bruised, bloodied but not yet beaten, they repair to a cozy little inn, not far from the Palais de Chaillot. Succoured by Article 19 of the UDHR not to mention a half a dozen single
malt Scotch whiskies - for medicinal purposes only. A cunning plan is hatched.

. Scroll down, itís halfway down the page. This is the root of DíArtagnanís boeuf)
At first, it seems that our trio now exiled, gagged, and their swords blunted, are neutered, mere poodles floating aimlessly in cyberspace. But all is not as it seems. So how are they to engage The Vendor? Luckily, for our trio, the Kings Guards have their feet up and are Relaxing Lah!, For a short while the Praetorian Guard, replete with hubris, have dropped their ever watchful gaze. Enough time for Les Trois to regroup and gather their wits.
Meanwhile, back at the Inn, their cunning plan is refined. A safe haven, a Fort of their own with impregnable battlements from which to launch their raids is what they need. A Wizard of their very own is summoned and in a heart beat they have their castle, indeed itís a Website that they can call their very own, a Forum solely for Multihulls no less, based deep in the Yorkshire moors.
It is from here that they will lure the hapless mariner to savor Article 19 and other deliciously subversive ideas. We may be seduced. Each of the major manufacturers including Vendor X has a stand alone section.
