While rumaging through this blog file, I found this apparently unposted entry. I barely remember writing this, but I suspect that it had something to do with my old darts team. I am pushing the "publish" button, because I really do not care about possible backlash (I mean that).
I've been in the ACME Lab quite a bit lately working on the Exocet design. Early mock ups have been, shall I say, less than successful.
I've hired a couple of assistants for my lab work since the "nano" portion of the development is still in, well, development. Due to certain complications, I found it necessary, to conscript an assistant or two. Perhaps developing dart warheads is similar to the development of computers where, in the early stages, they are rather large in scale.
Please meet Nevil and Frances. I have negotiated a contract of unconditional labor hours for match tickets and free ACME lab samples.of other ACME products. Nevil was quick to agree to the terms, while Francis required additional coaxing. Therefore, I reluctantly offered each of them room and board in the Lab...for now.

Now, I must develop the pocket size prototype due to the original prototype being somewhat on the cumbersome side of convenience. In a perfect world climate, the final design should be in the neighborhood of 4-5"...not just small enough to fit in the neighborhood itself. I have labeled the next stage of prototype, the ACME -Rocket Powered Exocet.
I have contracted a company located in Brooklyn in order to reduce the overall size of the Exocet power plant. They have sent me the first ever ACME -Rocket Power Plant sample. Impressive I say, and yet, affordable.
In other developments, the government has become quite interested in the ACME Laboratory work. I was able to workout a treaty of sorts. Of course, I didn't give them the actual name of our cause, because, well, that would violate all rules of Top Secret endeavors.
That is all I have for now. Be safe out there. I have heard rumors that, in our midst, are spies representing the opposing forces. It is imperative that we maintain secrecy in all of our ACME Lab works.
Your ever courageous leader,
