Continuity mistake: In Chapter 19, Wade describes the small efficiency apartment he has moved into, which used to be an average hotel room. He says at one point that the room "was basically a cube, about ten meters long on each side." A ten-meter cube is actually a really big room - that's over 32 feet on each side, including ceiling height. Then, just to confirm that this is indeed a mistake, later in the same chapter he refers to "my tiny one-room apartment."
Continuity mistake: In Chapter 24 Wade tells that Daito's avatar was killed the same day when he passed the second gates, after that he rants about IOI and the fact that in the next 2 days they have found the third key, and yet in next couple of day he felt depressed and finally he got a call from Shoto and when Shoto visits him in Chapter 25 he says that Sixers killed Daito a day before.
Question: In gate 1, Wade power cycles the TRS-80 after loading the cassette program - all of the units I used (I'm old) required the operator to boot, load the program from audio cassette, then run - not reboot and autostart as an Atari or Nintendo did - was there a trick from 30+ yrs ago I'm forgetting?
