After doing a strange pose for a few seconds while loudly humming a generic JRPG "### has joined the party!" theme, Vegetal says something along the lines of "kthxbye!" and gets into the elevator. He presses the button for the 200th floor (main offices, if I remember correctly). His first stop is none other than his own cubicle.

He leaves Sir Leroy with the (half eaten) sausage pizza he got from his departed friend Joseph (we hardly knew ye). Two seconds before the elevator doors close, he shouts: "When the time comes, use it!"
Some KS levels by me:

Matt, running out of mental energy by the kinda poisonous effect of the 3-methoxy-4-hydroxybazadawhatzit (he can't remember such a long and complex name) is unable to teleport so he just walks to the CMR (Captain Monorail) station, and takes the CMR to Northbridge. Also, since it seems tradition, he gives his PurpleBerry and MechaMail addresses to everyone else:

Data discovered!

Matt's PurpleBerry: 707 378-8078 (277 has changed to 707 over all these years)
Matt's MechaMail: neyenm@mechatec.vr (Matt is an executive, nominated by the real Yukabacera)

Random fun fact: Matt's phone number isn't randomly picked. It originally contained '1337'. His new phone number turns into 'BLOBBLE LOL' when viewed from upside down.

The guy from 5th floor exits the lobby to examine the street, if it can be called that. Everything in front of Northbridge is a park; Belle Vue Gardens, to be specific. In the center of the park is a memorial to commemorate first contact with the Nirnians. The industrial park is to the west, the residential district to the east, north is a district that doesn't really have a specific name (but that's where the port is located), and somewhere to the south is a highway that leads away from Messville and presumably, at some point, to Granville Heights and to the other cities and landmarks. The grim façade of Eyrie is to the east, and the lavishly decorated façade of Turnvale is to the east.

There is also a CMR station here. А sign on it reads, "Belle Vue/Northbridge".

Vegetal risks the elevator, and goes up to the 200th floor. He quickly finds his cubicle in the maze of, well, cubicles using the handy digital map on the wall and guiding lights MechaTec installed at the last minute and great expense.

Matt takes the monorail. The sobbing girl working the ticket counter tells Matt it's Free Monorail Day Bonanza today. Before going into the train, Matt notices that the cause of the girl's sobbing is That Depressing Movie*, which she happens to be watching on a miniature TV.

Arriving in front of Northbridge, and completely recopvered from the effects of Yukabacera(?)'s Koffee, Matt uses his PurpleBerry to contact the MechaMail address westwoodlem@mechatec.vr hoping Yukabacera answers.

Soon after sending a message to Westwood me, he receives a reply:

Vegetal grabs all the seemingly-useless items, hoping that they will come in handy.

Frowning upon his lack of a party EXP bonus after everyone left, Mocha checks the current inventory status and type of his sylladex

If you haven't an idea what a sylladex is, http://mspaintadventures.wikia.com/wiki/Sylladex

After filling up his inventory with a whole lot of seemingly useless items, Vegetal goes to the system administrator's office. Vegetal harbours a grudge against that jackass since the day he deleted Vegetal's 50 GB stash of high-def Junipr0n from his personal server account... just so the jerk could make room for installing Mass Effect 2 on the server. Nearly two years worth of pr0n-collecting efforts gone in the blink of an eye... just thinking about that makes Vegetal's blood boil with rage. But he decides to swallow his pride and go see the sysadmin anyway.

Sir Leroy finds out this isn't a MS Paint Adventure and that there are no Sylladexes in this game.

The guy from 5th floor goes up to the filing office. It's a huge, cavernous place, with filing clerks milling about doing something no one else in the company would ever do if they gave him a million dollars. There's a desk next to the elevator, and a clerk that isn't doing anything is sitting behind it.

Vegetal goes to the sysadmin's office. He enters without knocking, and finds the sysadmin at his desk, turning the dial on his radio, listening to some kind of music he's never heard before.

He notices Vegetal, and starts speaking:

"Hey there, man! You still angry about me deleting your porn? Come on, meet me here one day after work and we can find some mighty fine ASCII porn. I've got the address of a website with the good stuff."

Vegetal starts to speak out, but the sysadmin cuts in:

"You must have noticed this radio. I'm picking up a really weird station. I've heard the Panopticon* is picking it up too. Maybe it's like, aliens or something! Well, more aliens. It's pretty decent music, anyway. You want to listen to it too?"

Before Vegetal can say anything, the sysadmin cuts in again:

"Of course you do. Here, take this." He gives Vegetal a portable radio. "It's already tuned, no need to mess with it. Oh and, if you want, you can come here after work one day and I'll show you the kickass weapons I found in ME2. I'm totally seducing my yeoman, too."

He finally shuts up.

The radio blurts out some kind of evacuation order, then starts playing a song about dreams and a certain "Mister Sandman".

PointLezz Info™ Entry Unlocked: PSV Panopticon.

This intrigues me and I wish to know more.
Some KS levels by me:

After noticing he set a final boss theme as his ringtune (which he actually wanted to keep a secret so it can be used in a trial chapter) he realizes Yukabacera can't help him yet. He then watches a video of the easiest boss battle ever (to win, you don't have to do anything). After that, he teleports back to Eyrie tower and talks to everyone in there to find out something about the culprit.

Sir Leroy opens his briefcase, and finds a bunch of paperwork inside. However, under all those papers, he's hidden his life savings: exactly 100.000 dollars in cash. He also notices his wallet in the papers.

Vegetal consults the PointLezz Info™ entry about the PSV Panopticon:

The PSV Panopticon is a Parnathen-made prison ship that transports the most dangerous criminals in the Tri-Planet Union (Arvel, Nirn and Parnas) to a top-secret prison that is reportedly located on an asteroid in a system somewhere in the Eta cluster. There have been many reports of prisoners being treated harshly and unethically on the Panopticon, but there is no solid evidence to prove this yet. The Panopticon is a converted class-5 multipurpose ship, and is currently the only prison ship in the Tri-Planet Union. The name comes from a type of prison which allows a single person to observe all the prisoners without them knowing if they're being watched, thereby conveying what has been called the "sentiment of an invisible omniscience".

Matt teleports to Eyrie Tower, and ponders on which of the 100 floors to start on.

Vegetal speaks to the sysadmin:

"Yeah... yeah, let's not talk about the pr0n anymore, please. I'm still a bit touchy about that subject. Rather, I was hoping you could shed some light on a strange incident that's been bugging me. Say... you wouldn't happen to know an user which goes by the handle "ISPEZ-5", would you? He's been sending me those disturbing "U IZ LE HAWT" messages through the debugging console* and I can't have any coding done. I'd like to have a word with him personally. I swear, if he's that jerk from the 27th floor that trolled my World of Text and deleted my Earthworm Jim ASCII art..."
