Time Event
I knew I should have looked at README.TXT
Help! I'm stuck in VR!

I managed to talk my way into getting onto the beta team for this new massively multi-player virtual reality entertainment system. (I'd tell you who's behind it, but they made me sign an NDA.) It's really cool -- you should see the excellent moves I can do in here. The other players are really helpful, too: even though I didn't bother to read any instructions before jacking in (I figured I'd just pop in briefly for a minute or two to try it out first), everyone's been happy to tell me everything I need to know here. They even showed me how to access a terminal to get on the real WWW.

Interacting with the system is easy: you just have to think the right command phrase. If I want to change my costume, for example, I just need to think "suitswap outfit 'formal'", and voila, I'm wearing a tux. I mean literally, right now, I've suddenly got a tuxedo on. It's great.

But the problem is, nobody can tell me how to log out. It's not that they don't know; they all say it's trivially easy. And they seem to be perfectly willing to help me out. But as soon as I ask anyone, BAM, they're gone.

How the heck do I get out of this place?
