To start with: I might be a little biased on this one, but hey, you really don't expect completely fair information from ANY Hitchhiker's Guide to Anything, _do_ you?

Darkle's Discount Emporium is my shop. It's located on First Avenue, between Third and Fourth Streets, in UrbanTIM. Or you can just @tel to #65306.

I sell all sorts of stuff, some of which is VERY nice and useful, some of which is complete useless crap which I made one day when I was bored out of my mind. Here's a little rundown:

The Personal Digital Assistant, called the PDA: I'm most proud of this one. Its star functions lie in handling lists of people--for instance, it'll tell you which of a list of close friends is connected at the moment, and allow you to page them all with a single command.
Teleport Ring: This one's showing its age, and is due for an upgrade sooner or later. It does one thing, and it does it well: allows you to teleport without having to remember annoying five-digit addresses. For instance, instead of typing @tel #270, you can just type 'tport Nex' and be in the Nexus. Things like that.
Morph-O-Matics: Description and details storage and quick-changing. Again, it does only the one thing, but it does it well.
Paint Blasters: Expensive fun. I charge lots of cash for these to keep morons from buying them randomly.
Spheres of Uselessness: Utterly useless. Totally, COMPLETELY, useless.
Bracelets of Social Value: Nice, but not vital to your existence. Not usually, anyway. I mostly use mine for random @doings.
Dimensional Pocketing Devices: Another one of those things which are nice, but not vital. If you have a huge huge inventory, but don't use a lot of the things you have often, this is for you.
Magic 8-Balls, Pope Ordinations, Flags of TIM: Tourist junk. Total tourist junk.
FugueEdits: Probably the most useful thing I have, if you have TinyFugue and do a lot of MUSHcoding. (I borrowed them from van's underground mall, because van appears to have
lost all of his.

That's everything. Well, I do keep my house above the shop, and you can come and visit and marvel at my tapestry if you want to.

OVERALL RATING: 7.5 (nothing really to SEE, but lots to buy)
LODGINGS: Only for me. This MIGHT be negotiable to the right person, though... =)
