research, you and your experience of the loft

6:37 pm noel: The archive is never closed! 
6:37 pm noel: hmnnn.... 
6:38 pm noel: how would that thought work with "there is no Meta- Archive?" 
6:39 pm noel: It said something about that in the text I think

9:47 pm Oliver: Are there any other old photos? The stories behind them sound
