Space Thinker D: Part 11"See D, I told you I could get things my way"
"They put a collar on you Alex?"
"Yeah, to track my whereabouts for the duration of the punishment"
"On the Domicile they'd make us go into isolation chambers with nothing to do but lists of things to memorize for a punishment."
"Did they now?"
"...They said it was 'to make sure we learned something."
"Well, did you learn something? No, don't tell me what it is, just tell me if you did."
"Yes, I'd say he did" 32 piped in, somewhat disgruntledly as she had had to carry a heavy piece of luggage up the steps to the manor. "I administered it to him."
"Say, what's that thing on your arm?" Alex was actually looking past D at this point and really talking to 32 but meant the growth from part 9.
"That's what we thought we could ask you Mr. Alex. Do you have notes from your father or grandfather about biomachinery?"
"That statue gives me the creeps."
"D, that isn't a statue that's my grand... hey no don't"
Space Thinker D: Part 10"Mr. Alex, the board finds you guilty of withholding information from the Cor."
"Is there a way I could buy my way out of it?"
"We will decide that amongst ourselves. you are a rather valued client and a contributing member so that may work in your favor but your violations of the terms of service in your contract shall not go without punishment. Punishments tend to be severe."
The council of the board of directors huddled together and murmured as they worked at reaching a consensus.
"Ahem! Well Mr. Alex, in recognition of your family's years of loyalty to the cor, we have elected to minimize your punishment. You will not be kicked off the board."
"We are not finished yet."
"...You will not be kicked off the board. However, you will be placed under house arrest for a length of time."
"I won't be allowed to leave my estate?"
"Correct; provisions will be made to allow you to continue carrying out most of your affairs fr
Space thinker D: Part 9The Artifacts, D and 33-a were brought up to the Domicile.
She reported on the report of D's findings to 32.
"It seems to have information inside it which D is able to read. Sort of. Mr. Alex insisted that we should take it to his mansion and said it would be relevant to some of the things there."
32 thought for a moment about the implications of this.
"So then that doesn't follow with his earlier story of being just a wealthy con who lacks basic understanding of the technology his family made for us." Now it made sense why Alex wanted to make the request that he did.
"We don't know that yet. He is being detained at the moment and z is talking to him."
"Well how is D doing? The machine didn't make him sick or anything, did it?"
"Why do you always ask about him? Don't you think I did a good j..."
32 shot 33-a a look that said 'I am still in charge.'
"... Yes 32. Sorry. He had a bit of initial redness and
Space Thinker D: Part 833-a was not too happy.
"You guys are a bunch of dumbasses. If the artifact reads as bioactive and leaking microorganisms you could all be infected and you just infected us. I may need to call off the whole dig. This isn't going to look good to 32 or the supervisor."
"33-a, wait, before you do that,- we never assembled the three pieces. Also, our initial analysis reads that the bugs on the outside are nonpathogenic. We wanted to get some people to check the insides first before trying to reassemble the apparatus."
Alex wandered past the cordoned off area of the camp and stared at the artifacts intensely for a few moments then looked away from them. Much like there was something he may have recognized about them but was not saying.
"I could, if it isn't any trouble allow you to put this system back together on my estate D, 33-a."
"You know I can't allow you to do that because it is against Cor regulations."
"Ah, well, at least I tri
Space Thinker D: Part 7"Hey new guy, get your head in the game!"
"I'm the thinker, I'm supposed to help you guys"
"Pffft thinkers. 84_f you get a load of this guy?"
"Not yet 89_w. Hey man, you going to direct us here or what? Stop thinking about how much more important you probably think you are than us and get with the directing here. Oh, that isn't what you were thinking about? Look Mac (oh, D, that's your name), this is a cor company job. we've got to know what we're looking for. Start interpreting our data ok?"
The two diggers having said their peace, a chief hacker stepped forward.
"77_K reporting. Look man, do you have any idea what the people up top want us to find...? Cracking this old security won't be too tough, I've been practicing a lot."
D reflected for a moment. "They said this used to be a research hospital"
"Let me finish"
"alright 89_f, let the man finish."
"Continuing,... the records say that back i
Space Thinker D: Part 6"Okay D, I'm not exactly thrilled to be your field manager either, but just do what your job is from the file or whatever. I don't particularly care, if you mess up it isn't my problem." 33-a also grumbled a bit about having to mind the project, it not being fair because they were about the same age so what makes D special and how she'd rather be doing something else.
"So do I meet up with the team of workers now?"
"Okay, workers, we have an assignment today..."
"We know," said one of the archaeology diggers. "The cor gave us pamphlets already."
"Oh. Uh, this is my first time doing this."
"We kind of figured that."
"Look, are we going to work together as a team or not?"
At this point a hacker chimed in "Relax D, we know what we're supposed to do already, you just need to manage us a bit then turn in a report to her. The site is about 10-12 kilometers away from us. If you find something odd tell us but in the meantime just tr
A Comparison of Windows Versus Linux ArchitectureA Basic Comparison of Windows and Linux Atchitecture.
Note: this is not meant to be an in-depth explanation of either Windows or Linux or their respective architectures. Rather is is meant for people with little knowledge of either, or who only have knowledge of one, to understand why these two are so different (and I admit to some bias in favor of the Linux concepts over the Microsoft one.)
If you know Windows, then you may have a general understanding of most of this information, but even if you are a long time Windows user, you may not know much about the internals of how it works, so this may help you.
Microsoft Windows originated from the DOS operating system. DOS stands for Disk Operating System and was meant as a method for allowing computers to access larger amounts of data than could be easily stored on RAM or ROM chips. Windows grew from DOS as the Graphical User Interface pioneered mainly by Apple became more and more prevalent.
In it's most basic sense, Windows
Ranting Time: Why you should never trust believersWarning: This rant will contain strong language that your kids will don't care about, or stuff that may offend you. Click the on something else if you don't like see my full opinion.
I feel like this rant need to be made, because there are too many idiotic believers out there that is make our society lacking the sense of logic and knowledge. What's the of those type of people? It's makes some of us wants to go up to them and punch them in the face. Here's what they do. They want to talk about some bullshit that doesn't make sense and want to shared that to the world for everyone to here, but some people that have more intelligence knows that this is whole beliefs is absolute nonsense. This is exact same thing that people on the internet do. This is mostly common in religion. Such as these type of religious people that some people have deal on the internet and possibly real life Christians, Muslims, Jews, Atheists, and other types of religious people that I don't
My Top Ten Favorite Linux AppsMy Favorite Linux Apps and Add-ons
Here are a few items that I normally install on any Linux Computer I use...
1) Compiz... This Comnpositing Window manager gives you so many cool effects and ways to tweak your system that I feel lost without it. While it is only suitable for fairly recent hardware, and works best with a good graphics card with a fast GPU and lots of dedicated RAM, once you meet those requirements, there's nothing else like it. It can be tricky to set it up, but there is a wealth of information online for nearly every distribution of Linux and how to install Compiz and get it working (assuming your distro didn't come with it already installed)
2) KWIN... a slightly more stable alternative to Compiz. It does not have as many effects available, but it does have the most popular ones. It can be a bit more stable and proably uses a little less computer resources than Compiz as well.
3) Cairo-dock... a wonderful, very customizable dock bar that can be used in many ways and
FAQuinterview - Foire aux quiches et aux questionsQu'est-ce que l'Oetherium ?
L'Oetherium est un univers que moi (Zlo) ai développé sur mon blog, dans des textes improvisés à partir de dessins que je publiais chaque semaine pour me forcer à écrire et développer un peu mes neurones fondus sur un exercice en free-style total. J'ai été rejointe par Helly au fil de nos discussions sur de petites improvisations aussi courtes que délirantes. Puis au final, ça a commencé à avoir de la gueule et à donner les signes d'une structure d'histoire plus large cohérente, tant et si bien que c'est de cette trame que nous sommes parties Helly et moi-même un soir, sur un délire skypesque plus grand que les autres et ça a finalement donné... hem, beaucoup plus de pages et d'improvisation que prévu, mais en duo .
L'Oetherium est, en très résumé, un monde en symbiose avec le nôtre, se
What it means to be in moirallegiance
I wanted to write a little thing on moirallegiance and what it means (at least to me). No matter where I looked on the internet I could not find a good definition or explanation of moirallegiance, so I figured I’d try my hand at it.
Firstly, I wanted to touch on the realness and importance of moirallegiance. Although the term moirallegiance is borrowed from a web-comic and applies to troll relationships I do truly believe it applies in real life to humans. I am also of the belief that moirallegiance is just as important and serious as matespritship (what is traditionally viewed as romantic love).
Moirallegiance is a platonic variation of love. It is a person’s platonic soul-mate. Many people liken a moirail to being a best friend, but I don’t agree with this. When someone is truly someone’s ‘rail it means they provide the other with balance and security. The relationship between moirails is built on the ability to balance each other. With out each other mo
A Moderate take on Climate and Energy UsageLennart Bengtsson: The Science And Politics Of Climate Change
Lennart Bengtsson, Neue Zürcher Zeitung
The science isn’t settled and we still don’t know how best to solve the energy problems of our planet.
Since the end of the 19th century, we have known that the Earth’s climate is sensitive to greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. At that time, the Swedish chemist Svante Arrhenius showed that an increase in CO2 concentrations would lead to a warmer climate. However, Arrhenius harbored little hope that this would happen. Consequently, the Swedes would have to continue to suffer in a cold and miserable climate. Since then, much has changed. Annual CO2 emissions have now reached a level that is about 20 times higher than that of 1896. This has caused concern worldwide.
More CO2 in the atmosphere leads undoubtedly to a warming of the earth surface. However, the extent and speed of this warming are still uncertain, because we cannot yet separate well enou
Bryan Singer Accused of Molestation in '99
Bryan Singer, director, producer and writer of more than two dozen productions including the X-Men films, was accused Wednesday in a federal lawsuit of having sexually abused a 17-year-old boy at estates in Los Angeles and Kailua, Hawaii. The alleged conduct took place in 1999 and included rape and other physical force and forced intoxication with cocaine, including at "sordid parties," according to the highly graphic lawsuit.
"The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit," said Singer's attorney Marty Singer. "We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit.
"It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan' s new movie (X-Men: Days of Future Past) is about to open in a few weeks," he said.
The plaintiff is Michael F. Ega
German Lesson #1First of all ... German is easier than you think, I needed only one year (because I lived in Russia then but i'm half Russian and half German) but that's not the matter ... I go especially for the Hetalia - Fan Fictions because when it's going to be romantic ... I can't sit properly anymore because it's so funny. Anyways I first off show simple words like the following but first of the "rule" like I call it :I <-(Smileys are always very useful to explain things x3).
English | German (rule #1)
her | sie (sie is by the way a formal version ... in a german letter for example, if you don't know someone you usually write : Sie, Ihre, Ihren usw
you | dich (eexample-time: I love you = Ich liebe dich)
her | Ihr (example-time: das ist ihr muffin = that's her Muffin)
his | sein/e (example: His 5 meter = Seine 5 Meter)
me | mich/ mir (example:what's with me? = W
