* A minor detail about Buzz and Delete; In "A Day At The Spa", Buzz comments that if Hacker doesn't need them "It's back to the cyber cheese factory for both of us!" But according to "Buzz and Delete Save the Day", their parts are from a cybersite called Botopolis and Hacker bought those parts and used them to build Buzz and Delete. Hacker building Buzz and Delete seems to be what everyone accepts as canon despite Buzz's comment (though I know it's supposed to be a throwaway line) in "A Day At The Spa". What's the truth?

* How did Motherboard know Matt, Inez, and Jackie's names in the first episode? It may have been that she somehow heard them introduce themselves to each other, but does that mean that she was watching them at the library?

* Considering it's obviously possible for computers to suck people into cyberspace, why aren't there tons of people living there where anything they want can be programmed in instantly? Surely the people who design and program computers are aware of this possibility; they invented the whole thing. (Yes, I know this is just a kids' show.)

**That's one of the few episodes I remember well. Hacker actually persuaded the kids to help him by giving Motherboard the antivirus ''before'' the kids defended him from the law and got him out of jail. They helped him because for all they knew, Hacker just cured Motherboard so now they need to keep their end of the deal. Although he revealed to his lackeys at the very end of the episode that it was only a ''temporary'' antidote....

** I might be confusing it with another episode, but didn't the crown turn Hacker into a ''RealityWarper'' (at least within Radopolis itself)? That's not someone you'd want to mess with, even on a kid's show.

*** To make this one worse, a later episode has Hacker holding Inez hostage with Jackie having to complete a task to rescue her.

** Motherboard being the cyberspace equivalent of a god cannot be defeated in cyberspace...however in the real world she is nothing more than a computer program. Hacker having once work for Motherboard and help maintain her probably figure out a way to manipulate the real world computer systems to make Motherboard...but only for a brief period(otherwise he could have just make another virus to use against her). Hacker probably spent years trying to do this.

** This is complicated by the fact that they're implied to be metallic but magnets don't affect them in any way (Didget is able to keep a magnet inside his chest compartment which also contains several pieces of important equipment; in real electronics, this would damage if not ruin said important equipment).



** Cyberspace seems to run on specific rules that everyone on any given site have to follow; the reasons are never given but they're strict enough that only evil villains seem to want to bend and/or break them.



** Odds are they dont have proof. Considering that people in cyberspace have right to trial they dont have any evidence, after all no one was looking at that time or video tape it.
** Not only do they not have proof, does that particular Cybersite have any jurisdiction over him besides the ordinance violation? You can only arrest someone for the laws you have, after all.

* Cyborg Cybology (yes, I did that on purpose): Good gods, where to begin? Well, you're technically going to live forever, so why bother having kids? For that matter, how exactly does this whole kids having thing work? There are denizens who are clearly robotic, others who look like hybrids, and yet others who seem organic. How organic are "borgs"?

** Though they never bring it up, to quote Inez in the estimation episode, "close enough is good enough". Plus Matt and Jackie both use "about" to describe the portions. Here's a paraphrased but still close rendition of what they said.
