<Previous Chapter<Table of Contents>Next Chapter>
“Yueyue, it’s not busy now, you should go home first.”
Passing by the bookstore from yesterday, Jiang Fuyue paused, thought about it, and pushed the door in.
Going straight to the innermost row of bookshelves, there were three bright characters next to it – old books area.
The book cover was old, the dust heavy, the stacking was not neat, and there was a musty smell of decay around it, no wonder no one was interested in them.
“Are these books for sale?” Jiang Fuyue found the clerk.
“…You want to buy it?!” The other party was a little surprised.
“En. How much?”
“This… I have to ask the boss.” Because no one ever buys them, let alone asks for a price.
Soon, the boss came over: “You want to buy these old books?”
Jiang Fuyue nodded.
“Originally, this had to be cleaned up. There are too many old books and they take up space. Since you like it, I will sell them to you at a cheap price. You can choose any one for five yuan.”
“Thank you boss.”
“Just don’t buy it and then regret it.”
“Don’t worry, I definitely won’t.”
“Okay,” the boss pointed to the shelf, “You can choose slowly.”
Jiang Fuyue was very fast and left in a quarter of an hour to checkout at the front desk.
“Yo, that’s it?” The boss smiled and glanced at her, thinking that this girl looked clever, but her brain was not very good.
Jiang Fuyue nodded: “I’ve chosen ten books.”
The boss took out a large plastic bag for her, watched Jiang Fuyue leave, and muttered to himself, “A book that doesn’t even have a cover. It’s amazing that someone actually bought it…”
Jiang Fuyue did not go home, but went to an Internet cafe opposite with the book.
“Please open the machine.”
The network administrator looked up and said, “Student?”
She calmly said, “I am an adult.”
The other party didn’t ask her for an ID card, “How long?”
“Twenty dollars. Cash or card?”
Jiang Fuyue: “…an hour is enough.”
For this, she spent the last ten yuan on her body.
Going to the innermost corner, it happened to be the blind spot of several cameras.
Power on, log in, and her ten fingers flew.
The original normal computer desktop freezed twice, and the screen went black.
Jiang Fuyue ignored it and continued to type on the keyboard, and a string of codes appeared, quickly filling the entire screen.
With the hit of the Enter key, the screen instantly brightened, and then a website landing page popped up.
Jiang Fuyue entered the login name: I live with a worried heart.
Then the six-digit password.
After the successful login, a cluster of fireworks bloomed in the middle of the screen, followed by a large purple iris blooming, like a welcoming feast.
Jiang Fuyue’s secretly thought oh no, and immediately switched the login status to stealth.
In an instant, the iris withered and gradually faded out of the desktop.
She breathed a sigh of relief, took out her mobile phone, and transferred the cover pages of the ten books that she had just shot in the bookstore to the computer. She selected “Hide seller information” and set the online auction mode.
Time: 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, California, Country M, at 0:00 a.m.
The old professor who had already taken off his glasses and was about to finish his work looked up and saw a large piece of withered iris appear on the table, and disappear in a blink of an eye.
His eyes were round, and he couldn’t tell whether it was a reality or a dream.
After a while, he almost typed out the code with trembling hands, the screen switched, and he jumped onto the homepage of a website.
Originally, he was in a logged-in state, but because he did not move the mouse for a long time, the privacy protection clause enabled the safe mode to return to the computer desktop.
Fortunately, he was in the logged-in state, so he didn’t miss the scene of the Iris’ fading just now.
This sea of purple flowers had disappeared for twenty years!
He put on his glasses, clicked on the system message, and a red exclamation mark appeared——
[West Eight Region time: Founder, I live with a worried heart, went online]
“It’s him! It’s really him!”
Capital of China, the sun shone fiercely.
Q University, Room 307, Laboratory Building.
The young master student watched his instructor stand up from his seat like a madman, staring at the computer screen, and there was a flash of wetness in his eyes.
“Professor Xu?” He stopped the experiment in his hand and prepared to go over.
“It’s okay… I’m just…” Too happy.
The old man stopped the students from approaching, and then clicked on the background to view the system messages –
Sure enough it was him!
At this moment, the landline rung, but he ignored it, sat in front of the computer, and quickly logged in with administrator privileges to check the other party’s IP address.
The landline stopped, and the phone started vibrating again in a blink of an eye.
Xu Kaiqing was about to hang up irritably, but at the moment of scanning the caller ID, he quickly pressed the answer button: “Old Pi—he has appeared!”
“Xu! He’s back!”
The two spoke at the same time, stunned at the same time.
Yes, they all saw it.
Old Peter: “I’m not an administrator, I don’t have permission, and California has been very strict on intranet inspections recently. You can track the IP address immediately, and you must find Chou! We have lost his news for 20 years, and there is no next 20 years, we can wait!”
“Yes, I know, I’m checking… it out!”
“How is it?!”
“…” There was silence.
“Xu? Are you listening? Hello?”
“…The online time is too short to be found.”
As soon as the voice fell, the two sides were silent.
Suddenly, Xu Kaiqing frowned, and saw an auction transaction authorization pop up in the background of the administrator.
He was about to check the details, but was preemptively passed.
Only founders and administrators have this permission, so-
“Old Peter! Old Peter! He’s still online! I just passed an auction transaction!”
“Auction?” There was a crackling sound on the keyboard from the other end, “I see it! Volumes 1, 2, and 3 of Feynman’s Lectures on Physics, they were out of print in 1987, and there are also seven volumes of manuscripts that Wheeler has not made public. The originals are in the Museum of E country, and copies have been banned since 2000, and they are no longer in circulation!”
Xu Kaiqing: “The auction ended two minutes ago, and the transaction amount displayed 20 SA coins in the background.”
SA coins, virtual banknotes traded inside the website.
1 SA coin is roughly equal to 10,000 yuan.
After the auction was completed, the money will be temporarily transferred to the intermediate account, and it can be transferred to the seller’s account only after the administrator has reviewed and approved it.
And this transaction was authorized by “Chou”, so can it be considered that…
Chou is the seller of these ten out-of-print books!
Xu Kaiqing’s eyes lit up, and was about to check the seller’s news, but a dialog box popped up in the administrator’s background –
[I live with a worried heart]: Long time no see, Xu.
【Xu】: Are you back? !
[I live with a worried heart]: Yes. Could you please exchange SA coins?
[Xu]: Of course! What currency do you want?
[I live with a worried heart]: RMB.
Xu Kaiqing’s breath stagnated, which means…the other is in China!
[Xu]: Good. Send to the same outter account?
[I live with a worried heart]: En.
Thirty seconds later, Jiang Fuyue received a reminder.
[I live with a worried heart]: Thank you.
【Xu】: Is it convenient for you to meet now? Less than half of the experimental conjecture that year was completed, Peter and I fell into a dead end.
[I live with a worried heart]: No rush, the time will come, I will meet you naturally.
After typing this sentence, the other party turned offline.
Xu Kaiqing only traced that the IP address was in Linhuai, but there was no way to find out the exact location.
But it was enough to get him excited.
“Cominh! Teacher Xu!” The assistant trotted in from the outside when he heard the sound.
Xu Kaiqing: “Help me book a flight to Linhuai!”
“Yes! The sooner the better! I’ll go back and pack up immediately. Have the car drive downstairs…” After speaking, he took off his lab coat and strode away.
“Hello? Hello?! Xu—can you hear me?” It turned out that the other person was still on the phone, and Old Peter’s anxious voice came from within, “Have you found Chou?”
“No. But I have to go there myself. .”
“OK, I’ll book a flight right away.”
“No, don’t rush over, wait until you find that person, the most important thing is to sort out all the experimental data. I have a hunch that it will come in handy soon.”
Xu Kaiqing ended the call, and when he reached the stairs, he realized that he forgot to take the computer. He quickly turned back, took the computer, and walked away like a gust of wind.
However, one detail was overlooked. The computer was turned on, but now it was closed.
The master student let out a turbid breath, with a bit of fear.
Then he approached a doctoral student in the same lab—
“Senior brother, I have something to ask you.”
“What website is S-SA?”
The doctoral student’s expression changed slightly: “How do you know that?”
” …I helped Professor Xu to turn off the computer just now, but I didn’t mean to peek at it! Brother, is there anything special about this website? I feel that teacher is very secretive and doesn’t want to mention it.”
“Actually, it’s not as mysterious as you think. S-SA , the full name of Science-Sale, also known as ‘Science-Sale Station’ in China, is used for the sharing and trading of academic materials, and it is said that there are a large number of out-of-print scientific research materials and first-hand manuscripts,” after a pause, he added with a smile, “The ones that can be used for collection, that sort.”
“And this kind of website? How come I’ve never heard of it?”
“S-SA implements a membership system, and the qualifications for the launch are only held by top scientists in various fields in the world. This group of people can authorize three admissions. It is said that there are less than 50 members in the world’s first launch, assuming that these people have used the invitation authority, it only adds up to about two hundred. Little shrimp like us can’t even get in. It’s strange if you heard of it, I only found out last year…”
“…There is really little information on the Internet.” The master student released the mouse and looked dazed.
That kind of feeling was like…
The world he originally knew, after opening the door, suddenly no longer looked like it used to.
