I'll toss my generosity into the ring. I'll promise to keep an uploaded
version of Wayne around (no information loss, very extropic), however I
can't guarantee that I'll give you real-time CPU rights. Being realistic
I think one can assume that the goals of near-gods probably trump the
goals of pre-post-humans.

Wayne, let us know what the worst moment of your life has been. I'm sure
I can setup the VR such that I can arrange to have it endlessly replayed.
