Technician Ted is an enthusiastic young computer hacker who bounces to work at the local Microprocessor factory every day at 8.30 am.
Anxious to please he knows he must complete his 21 daily tasks by clocking off time at 5.00 p.m. or incur the wrath of the Big Boss. But his fiendish boss hasn't told him what the tasks are or where they are located.
Undaunted Ted gets his mate (who also works at the factory) to give him a rough sketch of the rooms close to the Canteen after promising to buy him a cuppa at break:
We Call Him Sir Ted's Desk, Canteen, Reception, Cloakroom, Silicon Slice Store, Boardroom, Photocopier, Main Corridor.
His mate says the first thing he's got to do is go to his desk then visit the Silicon Slice Store. In each room he has to hit two flashing boxes in the correct sequence.
The only other words of wisdom his mate can come up with is the next task is in the Diffusion Furnace, but unfortunately his mate doesn't know where it is. He does know that for some tasks time is of the essence and the two parts of the task must be completed Megaquickly!
