Hi!

I'm writing a cyberpunk version of Moby Dick. So far it's pretty straightforward, at the moment I'm basically finding nice replacements for various sea-related words.

Edit: I'm finished!
MOBY DICK; or, THE CYBERWHALE
Code + original text

Here's an excerpt:

"There are some hackers running ahead there, if I see right," said I to Queequeg, "it can't be shadows; she's off by sunrise, I guess; come on!"
"Avast!" cried a voice, whose owner at the same time coming close behind us, laid a hand upon both our shoulders, and then insinuating himself between us, stood stooping forward a little, in the uncertain twilight, strangely peering from Queequeg to me. It was Elijah.
"Going online?"
"Hands off, will you," said I.
"Lookee here," said Queequeg, shaking himself, "go 'way!"
"Ain't going online, then?"
"Yes, we are," said I, "but what business is that of yours? Do you know, Mr. Elijah, that I consider you a little impertinent?"
"No, no, no; I wasn't aware of that," said Elijah, slowly and wonderingly looking from me to Queequeg, with the most unaccountable glances.
"Elijah," said I, "you will oblige my friend and me by withdrawing. We are going to the Indian and Pacific networks, and would prefer not to be detained."

I think this gets the award for the first Moby Dick adaptation of 2015!

I love this! It might be nice to replace some city name with "Neo-Tokyo" :)

Nothing more happened on the passage worthy the mentioning; so, after a fine run, we safely arrived in Neotucket.
