John's desktop, with the Pesterchum chat client open. Two alerts are flashing in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen.
The desktop shows the green slimer from Ghostbusters over a green/yellow background. There are six icons on the left:
An icon of a monitor/PC labelled "SYSTEM".
An icon of a green snake monster with a white head labelled "TYPHEUS".
An icon of a pair of yellow faces labelled "PESTERCHUM".
Two icons each of a carrot embedded in a cake labelled "pff.^CAKE" and "FUCK FUCK FUCK.^CAKE".
An icon of a blank-eyed, stitched-mouth face labelled "AAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUGH.~ATH".
There is an orange chat application window on the right. From top to bottom it shows:
A yellow title: "PESTERCHUM 6.0"
The pair of yellow faces logo, against a black background, and the label "CHAT CLIENT"
A highlighted chum with a yellow face icon, "turntechGodhead"
A second chum with a gray circle icon, "tentacleTherapist"
A third chum with a gray circle icon, "gardenGnostic"
A centered yellow button labelled "PESTER!"
A label "MYCHUMHANDLE:" above a black area with John's handle "ectoBiologist" in white to the right of a yellow face icon
A label "MOOD:" above a three rows and two columns of choices. All but the last are black text on a yellow background with the same happy yellow face icon to the left: "CHUMMY", "PALSY", "CHIPPER", "BULLY" (with a checkmark), and "PEPPY". The last has a red background and angry red face icon: "RANCOROUS".
On the toolbar along the bottom of the screen the controls are:
A rectangular button with a green circle icon labelled "ACTUATE"
A task with yellow face pair icon and label "PESTERCHUM"
A currently minimized flashing task with yellow face icon and label "gardenGno..."
A second the same but with label "turntechG..."
A clock in the bottom-right corner, showing date "04/13" and time "17:02"
Clicking the first flashing task plays an ascending sequence of tones and pops up a message window on the left of the screen. It has the beige chumhandle title ":: gardenGnostic ::", and a white area labelled "PESTERLOG:" which contains the top section of text from the pesterlog on this story page. At the bottom of the window a cursor sits ready to type into white text area to the left with a yellow "PESTER!" button to the right
Clicking the second flashing task plays the opposite descending sequence of tones and pops up a different message window, this one titled ":: turntechGodhead ::". Other window elements are as before, and this time the content is the second section of text from this page's pesterlog.
