The Wonders of Technology

The wonders of technology - I have found random word/plot apps for my phone. To quote Eddie Izzard "I have found 'techno-joy'". Though I do wonder how I could incorporate a plot involving a warlord, two dragons and the words 'neck' or 'untraceable'.

I should get some sleep :-)
