It’s definitely on my mind as I write him – the idea that he had an entirely different life, long ago, that he doesn’t like to talk about. The Mantlo/Mignola/Gordon “Rocket Raccoon” limited series got reprinted in one of the Marvel UK comics of my childhood, so I do have some rosy, cosy memories of it. He was pretty much a totally different person back then – and from what I recall, a much less troubled one. Occasionally, bits and pieces of that old life will surface – someone will get past his defenses by reminding him of the old days, or he’ll have retained a piece of kit from his time as Ranger Rocket – but to remember is painful. It’s a very noir trope – the old, good time that the hero lost and can never get back. The long-buried sadness. -- Al Ewing

Most cpus will still function for a bit without coolant.

Sure, after a minute they'll overheat and be toast, but it takes more than 10 seconds for a cpu to cook itself.

You can't assume human computer construction norms with alien tech.

Yeah, but I would hope that this bomb proof vault at least lasts as long as an i7-6700k without a fan.

True perhaps, but this CPU was searching the most common name in the galaxy at the same time, so... ;)

Fun fact: This is a story about an interstellar heist with comic undertones.
Fun fact: The planet's name is Digriz.
Fun fact: James Bolivar "Slipper Jim" DiGriz is the real name of the Stainless Steel Rat, the protagonist of Harry Harrison's classic comic heist/thief/spy science fiction series.

Almost anything.

(Master Order looking and acting distinctly like YHVH from Shin Megami Tensei over in Ultimates wasn't deliberate.)
