Additional Card Rulings & Errata
  Ruling Source Date
Since a Runner can use Pile Driver to break "up to four" subroutines on a piece of ice, the Runner may choose to pay the extra bit only for those subroutines he or she wishes to break. Netrunner FAQ v.1.0 05/22/1996
Under Dropp's corrected wording (0 Break all subroutines...) the Runner cannot choose to break only some of the subroutines on a piece of ice. The additional one-bit payment must be made for all or none of the subroutines. Netrunner FAQ v.1.0 05/22/1996
Trivia

Crystal Palace is an orbital space station the size of a city in the Cyberpunk 2020 background. It is owned by the ESA and orbits at the L-1 Lagrange point, between the Earth and the Moon - thus the long time-lag effects which are simulated by the card. High above the petty concerns of the mud-bound world, Crystal Palace is a hub of the Orbital Rich and the commerce that made them that way. It does not hurt that they have orbital mass drivers to enforce their presence...

The card artwork is based on an illustration of Crystal Palace from the Cyberpunk 2020 role-playing game.

A location called Crystal Palace Station also exists in the novel Teklab by William Shatner.

Crystal Palace is also the code name for Cheyenne Mountain in the USA, under which is the command bunker for US defense command SAC and NORAD. It was designed to survive a direct nuclear strike... the whole place is on springs and is buried deep inside the mountain.

The card illustartion was submitted by R. Talsorian Games Staff, since they designed the game Cyberpunk 2020 upon which Netrunner is based.
