|Time frame||May 1990|
- Mark and Jackie Gravengood's kitchen in Spearfish Lake
Mark retires from the telephone company after it is taken over by a larger concern, and they reassign him to an area outside of Spearfish Lake.
He decides to set up a new company, Marlin Computer, making a full time business out of what he'd been doing anyway.
He also decides to set up an ISP for Spearfish Lake and the immediately local area, using his knowledge of the local telephone infrastructure to get himself a very good deal on a data circuit with enough capacity to run an ISP.
- "David", the high school sophomore that works for Mark at Marlin Computer
