"Golly!" Gadget exclaimed, "That computer is gi-normous and soooo last century!" she remarked, looking all around at the old, room-filling computer with it's exposed reel-to-reel tape system as she instinctively went to its control panel.

"Funny how quickly technology advances," Rich remarked. "I bet the computing power in this electronic dinosaur is surpassed by the computing power in our iPhones."

"I'm pretty good at fixin' things," said Gadget, "maybe this computer can be fixed to help us with the next clue!"

"Jingle-jingle, Jingle!" Tink said, agreeing.

"What?" Gadget said, "You say you're named Tink because you're a tinker pixie... and tinkers fix things? Well, I guess I'm a tinker, too, then!" Gadget laughed.

Basil observed, "Between the two of you, I deduce that you'll have this old computer running again soon!"

"But can they fix it in time before the Heartless get the last piece of Walt's Keyblade?" Dale wondered out loud.

"Tink and our Gadget can do it!" Chip said confidently. "I believe in them!" he continued, which made Tink smile and glow brighter.

"Hmmm, that's interesting..." Gadget said, peering down at the control panel.

"What is it, Gadget?" Dawson asked.

"I think I see the reason why it isn't working...but I just can't seem to..." Gadget muttered, trying to peer more into the computer control panel.

:smart: Narrator - Tinker Bell then flew into the Computer Control Panel, since she was just the right size to get a better look.

"Jingle...Jingle!" Tinker Bell started to chime.

"What's that?" Gadget replied, "You found something that looks like a crispy, burnt burrito?"

"You found my lunch in there???" Johnny asked.

"No, silly!" Gadget giggled, "I think Tink means she found a fried diode or something."

"Gosh!" Mickey said, sounding worried, "where would we find old parts for this ancient computer?"

That started Gadget thinking out loud, "Yeah, that would be hard nowadays... Maybe we could bypass that part of the circuitry, but I'd need something to put there in place of it..."

"Wanna check what to do using Google on my iPhone?" Rich offered.

"Golly, that's it!" Gadget exclaimed happily.

"Google?" Goofy asked.

"No, not Google," Gadget replied, still thinking out loud, "But I could use the iPhone. If you have your charger connector with you, Rich..."

"Got it!" Rich nodded.

"...I might be able to patch your iPhone into this computer system to bypass the faulty subsection of it..." Gadget said, clearly in her element.

:smart: Narrator - Gadget went on speaking technical jargon for about another 4 minutes before concluding.

"And that's how I could do it, with Tink's help!" Gadget summed up, beaming. "But I'll need an iPhone that's been jailbroken."

"Sorry, I've kept mine just as Apple designed it," Rich said.

"You could use mine," Johnny offered, "It's jailbroken."

Johnny looked around as he handed the jailbroken iPhone to the floating ball of light that was Tink.  "What?  I couldn't get it to do what I want with it anyways."

"How soon did you get that iPhone anyway?" Mickey asked.

"It isn't like we've got computers with internet access back in Celebration," Johnny protested.  "Besides, I'm holding out for the G1 from T-Mobile, that runs Google Android."

"Here's what I need you to do, Tink..." Gadget said as Tink listened closely. Gadget talked for quite a few minutes, with Tink smiling and nodding, the two of them completely understanding each other.

"Jingle-jingle!" Tink chimed, saluting to Gadget when she was done explaining, then Tink flew behind the control panel again, this time with the iPhone and its charging cable attached to it, and connected it to the computer as Gadget had told her to do.

"Okay, Tink!" Gadget instructed from the other side of the control panel, "Now switch on the iPhone and enter the commands I told you. I'll be rewriting the code at this end, bypassing the fried parts of the computer and having it use the iPhone's processor instead. I'll need to limit the iPhone's computing ability to be less than normal so we don't overload this old computer mainframe..."

"Just don't use Safari on the iPhone," Rich advised, "I wouldn't want the whole system crashing!"

:rimshot:

"Those JAMitors sure play loudly," Jessi said, "we can hear them all the way down here!"

"I hope this works," Mickey said.

"And works in time so we can defeat the Heartless with Walt's Keyblade and his treasure," Minnie answered.

"Walt's treasure..." Scrooge McDuck said softly, a greedy look in his eyes...

"Jingle Jingle!" Tinker Bell said from behind the control panel.

"All set? Okay, I just have one more code to put in..." Gadget said, finishing up the codes. "Okay! All set. Let's see if we fixed it, Tink!"

"Jingle!" Tink said, flying out from behind the control panel and stood next to Gadget.

:smart: Narrator - Just then....

:smart: Narrator - Scrooge McDuck casually strolled over next to Gadget and saw the previous print-out where she had laid it on the control panel's countertop and he then managed to subtly take it without anyone noticing. As he stood there in front of the printer, waiting for the new and better print-out to be printed, he surreptitiously examined the first print-out...

"I'd recognize these words anywhere, no matter how hard it is to make them out..." Scrooge thought silently to himself, "...'My treasure'... I cahn't make out the other words, though, so I better snatch the next print-out as soon as it appears!"

"Care to use my magnifying glass to get a better look, Scrooge?" Basil asked him, causing Scrooge to jump!

At that instant, Johnny managed to snatch the printout out of Scrooge's hand while the strength of his fingers were reduced by the utter shock of Basil's remarks.  "No grabbies.  We all get to look."

Johnny took one look at the printout, whistled, and handed it to Mickey.

"No, it's too muddled for me to make anything out," Mickey said. "How's it coming with the computer repairs, Gadget and Tink? We need to see a better copy."
