[ 2018.01.20 18:34:56 ] Parious MeHoff > “Greetings, and welcome to the Sixth Seyllin Conference!”
[ 2018.01.20 18:35:23 ] Parious MeHoff > “I honestly have no idea why Ms. Priano asked me to open the conference… I am not even remotely a scientist. Perhaps I should open with why I joined with this group of scientists and scholars…”
[ 2018.01.20 18:36:02 ] Parious MeHoff > “Humanity has always looked forward. Towards the next horizon. Through the clouds. Beyond that nebula. It is what drives us. We all look forward with wonder.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:36:56 ] Parious MeHoff > “I have always been a combat pilot. My first ship after graduating from the Republic Military School was a Rifter class vessel. All I knew was how to fire my cannons, and I knew I wanted something more.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:37:36 ] Parious MeHoff > “After some time doing odd jobs for the Republic, I found a group of pilots that sought to defend folk from the local pirates of Molden Heath.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:38:17 ] Parious MeHoff > /emote chuckles. “That went… Well it went about as well as it could when you have a group of green, idealistic pilots seeking to do good against a stronger force.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:39:01 ] Parious MeHoff > “Through all this time, I kept looking forward with wonder. A few years later, the Seyllin Incident happened. A new horizon appeared.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:39:46 ] Parious MeHoff > “Most of my small group of friends, the Galactic Collective, set up a small base in the Anoikis system of J151431. I’m sure nobody here has heard of it, as it has no name, but for my friends and I, it was called home.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:40:25 ] Parious MeHoff > “From our small base, we explored different systems. We searched Sleeper ruins. We saw that next horizon.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:41:09 ] Parious MeHoff > “We fought enemies, made friends, and defended our little corner of Anoikis. We found new materials, and built new ships. We saw those clouds, and traversed those new nebulas.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:41:49 ] Parious MeHoff > “After a few years, my friends sought new opportunities. Some sought Kredits, some sought killmarks. Over time, our small band went our separate ways.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:42:31 ] Parious MeHoff > “I found myself lost. I wanted to find that new horizon, but didn’t know which way to look.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:43:19 ] Parious MeHoff > “Soon after, something miraculous and terrifying happened. A star changed, visible throughout the cluster. Huge observatories began decloaking in random systems. Strange chrome ships appeared.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:43:55 ] Parious MeHoff > “I saw this nebula, wanted to know more, but didn’t know where to start. A message came out to meet at Site One, here in Eram.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:44:42 ] Parious MeHoff > “I found myself flying off the wing of a Drifter Silverfish flying in formation. I tried communicating, but nothing worked.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:45:30 ] Parious MeHoff > “They only seemed interested in one form of communication. They destroyed the TES Seraph, and with it, Empress Jamyl I. If they could do that, no one was safe.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:46:15 ] Parious MeHoff > “I wanted… No, I needed to do something to help, but I was just a combat pilot. I didn’t know where to start. Then I heard a call for combat pilots.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:47:16 ] Parious MeHoff > “The Arataka Research Consortium was actively working to discover the machinations behind the Drifters. They had scientists and scholars. They needed combat pilots.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:47:50 ] Parious MeHoff > “I found a way to help. There was something I could do.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:48:25 ] Parious MeHoff > “I guarded the scientists as they went about their research. I let the Drifters focus on me as they took samples and measurements. I saw things…”
[ 2018.01.20 18:49:06 ] Parious MeHoff > “I saw huge structures spanning hundreds of kilometers. Monoliths with huge assemblies around them. A swirling mass of debris, with more lightning than I had ever seen before.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:49:39 ] Parious MeHoff > “Over time, I became a member of this prestigious group of scientists, scholars, and philosophers, not because I was one, but because I was a combat pilot.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:50:23 ] Parious MeHoff > “They trusted me to become a director and fleet commander in ARC. I lead them into these dark places where so many feared to tread. Together, we introduced new pilots to these horizons, and saw the same look of wonder on each of their faces.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:50:57 ] Parious MeHoff > “The research they…”
[ 2018.01.20 18:51:05 ] Parious MeHoff > /emote clears his throat. “No, the research that WE do opens these new horizons for all of humanity to witness and wonder.”
[ 2018.01.20 18:51:45 ] Parious MeHoff > “And now I, a green, idealistic graduate of the Republic Military School, have the opportunity and pleasure to introduce these scientists to you!”
[ 2018.01.20 18:52:02 ] Parious MeHoff > “Welcome to Seycon 120!”
[ 2018.01.20 19:01:13 ] Jaret Victorian > Our next presentation – Corrupted Trinary Repositories and Recovery Operations is devoted to the research that is ongoing at this very moment some hundreds meters away from us on this station.
[ 2018.01.20 19:01:37 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote smiles “Hundreds of capsuleers and baseline scientists worked on this massive project and you are now here to witness one of the first public reports firsthand.”
[ 2018.01.20 19:01:59 ] Jaret Victorian > Please welcome on stage Lord Ibrahim Tash-Murkon and Trii Seo
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:03 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote claps
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:12 ] Francophobia > /emote claps and turns his attention to the stage.
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:14 ] Mizhir > /emote claps
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:20 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote enters from an off-stage position.
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:22 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote applauds from her position, before going back to skimming a datapad, then tucking it away.
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:24 ] Che Biko > /emote sets his drink down for a moment to clap.
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:25 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote listens quietly from the second row, though she applauds as the new presenters are introduced*
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:35 ] Khaprice > /emote applauids, looking over to Jaret > Sounds like some interesting stuff coming up too!
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:40 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote welcomes the reporters on stage and walks to the cameras
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:42 ] Alexi Hellsing > /emote claps with the audience
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:45 ] Jev North > /emote raps the bottom of her cane against the floor as the new presenters are announced.
[ 2018.01.20 19:02:51 ] Ninavask > /emote applauds and then settles quietly to wait.*
[ 2018.01.20 19:03:02 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote after sitting her cup on the floor she applauds
[ 2018.01.20 19:03:17 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote enters silently dressed as in the portrait and looks around
[ 2018.01.20 19:03:54 ] Nomistrav > /emote glances at Ioannis as he enters, gesturing toward a nearby seat as the presenters arrive on stage
[ 2018.01.20 19:03:57 ] Trii Seo > /emote enters right behind Ibrahim, the holographic ARC logos spinning around to display the black-white eagle, bearing a cracked padlock on its shield – before switching back to Consortium logos. > Good evening, Eram!
[ 2018.01.20 19:04:21 ] Khaprice > /emote gets a fruit juice from the porters and returns to her seat, cheers Trii’s entrance enthusiastically
[ 2018.01.20 19:04:26 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote nods at Nomistrav and sits next to the man nodding with a smile and observes * Trii Seo
[ 2018.01.20 19:04:41 ] Trii Seo > …and before any of you get any ideas, it’s just Trii.
[ 2018.01.20 19:04:52 ] Makoto Priano > Sotto voce: Ms. Seo.
[ 2018.01.20 19:05:01 ] Khaprice > Madamn Seo, surely not!
[ 2018.01.20 19:05:10 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “Thank you, Miss Seo and I will begin.”
[ 2018.01.20 19:05:17 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “Trii, even.”
[ 2018.01.20 19:05:19 ] Che Biko > /emote smiles a little as he waves two fingers at Trii.
[ 2018.01.20 19:06:09 ] Ayallah > /emote finds a seat in the second row, just behind Mizhir. She touches the Vherik woman on the shoulder as greeting as she sits down just as the next section begins.
[ 2018.01.20 19:06:52 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “Hello, everyone, thank you for attending and expressing your interest in these important affairs. Let me open with some background, to begin.”
[ 2018.01.20 19:07:03 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > As I am sure everybody remembers, in September of YC119 a network of previously unknown Sleeper sites became visible throughout K-Space designated as Enclave Warzones.
[ 2018.01.20 19:07:26 ] Mizhir > /emote turns around, smiles, and says a quiet “hi” before returning her attention to the stage
[ 2018.01.20 19:07:47 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > The sites were composed of Sleeper and Drifter wreckage following some type of engagement. If disturbed the sites came under the protection of advanced drones.
[ 2018.01.20 19:08:12 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > Designated as “Eosian Inquisitors” these drones were aesthetically similar to the Circadian Seeker drone or its Drifter variant the Autothysian Lancer.
[ 2018.01.20 19:08:44 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > Successfully disabling these protective measures allowed pilots to search the wreckage and find never before seen data repository devices.
[ 2018.01.20 19:09:17 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > Bearing hallmarks of Sleeper and Jovian technology these “corrupted trinary relics”, though damaged, seemed to have some value. Enter the Agency and the Quartermaster.
[ 2018.01.20 19:09:51 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > Two months prior to the Enclave Warzone incident the Scope Network had divested itself of all Capsuleer job brokering services. The buyers of the network were not disclosed.
[ 2018.01.20 19:10:31 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > However, reporting by Impetus Interstellar, backed with leaked documents, alleges that what would be branded as “The Agency” was purchased by a consortium of mercenary contractors and private military corporations.
[ 2018.01.20 19:10:47 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > These included organizations such as the Ostrakon Agency and Intara Direct Action.
[ 2018.01.20 19:11:12 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > It was through the Agency’s contracting network that the individual knows as “the Quartermaster” placed a Cluster-wide contract on procuring CTRs for an unknown purpose.
[ 2018.01.20 19:11:55 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > The Directive Intelligence Agency has labeled the Quartermaster as an associate of the Empyrean fighter pilot group called the “Valkyrie”. A rival faction known as the “Schism” is potentially involved.
[ 2018.01.20 19:12:16 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > CDIA believes the Schism is headed by former Guristas co-leader Jirai ‘Fatal’ Laitanen. The Valkyrie themselves seems to have a potential, former link the Guristas.
[ 2018.01.20 19:12:59 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > Many highly qualified fighter pilots began defect to the Guristas, it is rumored, in the years leading up to the first clone fighter pilots.
[ 2018.01.20 19:13:32 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > It is not clear what role the Quartermaster plays in this; a mere broker or an interested party himself. Dark GalNet recordings that have surfaced seem to show he has a longstanding interest in Drifter and Sleeper technologies.
[ 2018.01.20 19:13:47 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > These recordings have not been authenticated, however.
[ 2018.01.20 19:14:23 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > With so many unknowns behind the Quartermaster’s offer ARC decided the situation was too critical to not attempt to acquire a stockpile of CTRs for research by a transparent, international organization.
[ 2018.01.20 19:15:28 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > ARC’s mass acquisition program required a large dedication of funds and on the ground work by itself and allied organizations and individuals. In the end nearly 13,000 devices were secured.
[ 2018.01.20 19:16:34 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > These were transferred to research facilities aboard the, well, this Burraeu Memorial Laboratory in Eram. To talk about the recovery and testing procedures I turn you over to Miss Trii Seo.
[ 2018.01.20 19:17:04 ] Trii Seo > /emote nods and steps up > The amount of people who bought into the Quartermaster’s scheme shows that, despite all our superiority as immortals – we still, by choice, offload important decisions to those we consider authority.
[ 2018.01.20 19:17:04 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote claps politely.
[ 2018.01.20 19:17:07 ] Khaprice > /emote applauds
[ 2018.01.20 19:17:24 ] Alexi Hellsing > /emote claps with audience
[ 2018.01.20 19:17:27 ] Francophobia > /emote applauds
[ 2018.01.20 19:17:35 ] Trii Seo > We bask in our own glamour and riches, flaunt our finance and put it to use in internal conflict, or let it just rest – where, judged simply by what we can accomplish, we could be pioneers of mankind.
[ 2018.01.20 19:18:01 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote applauds, then cocks her head, listening*
[ 2018.01.20 19:18:04 ] Jev North > /emote head-tilts a few degrees, skeptical but interested.
[ 2018.01.20 19:18:15 ] Trii Seo > It took baseliners, pure guts and curiosity to venture beyond the stars known to men – where the map showed only “Here be dragons”. Maybe, in the minds of some, to check if there truly were.
[ 2018.01.20 19:18:23 ] Valerie Valate > /emote listens attentively to hear what details there are about containing meme worms.
[ 2018.01.20 19:19:22 ] Trii Seo > And it is our duty, as those who stand above and beyond in capabilities – to reach farther, discover more and brave dangers common men are too frail to undertake. You came here to witness and wonder, as we invited…
[ 2018.01.20 19:20:26 ] Makoto Priano > Sotto voce, from backstage: “Ms. Seo.”
[ 2018.01.20 19:21:10 ] Trii Seo > /emote raises her hand and the holographic projectors around explode in light, erecting a massive holographic image of three supercomputing clusters > …This, is the Evergreen cluster.
[ 2018.01.20 19:21:34 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote observes
[ 2018.01.20 19:21:48 ] Khaprice > /emote le gasps, looking to Franc next to her quizically
[ 2018.01.20 19:21:58 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote tilts her head a bit back to get it all in
[ 2018.01.20 19:22:26 ] Trii Seo > While they may have been classified, simply, as Trinary Relics – they were anything but a single type of relic. In reality, they come from a wide span of time – ranging back from, as far as we can date, the Ani constellation sleepers…
[ 2018.01.20 19:23:07 ] Francophobia > /emote glances back uncertainly, clearly very curious.
[ 2018.01.20 19:24:01 ] Trii Seo > …all the way to what we could consider modern era. Their types contain storage units that come close to modern solid-state drives, and magnetic media utilizing methods of storing three-state logic on a medium often considered binary.
[ 2018.01.20 19:24:31 ] Thaila Lemrenoy > /emote curiously follows the presentation
[ 2018.01.20 19:25:18 ] Trii Seo > /emote lets the cluster fade out a bit, replaced by a wide array of red dots – illustrating relics. Lines appear, segmenting them by era, by type, by sub-category of types – creating a three-dimensional matrix.
[ 2018.01.20 19:26:10 ] Khaprice > /emote whistles softly at the implications
[ 2018.01.20 19:26:39 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote cocks her head the other way*
[ 2018.01.20 19:26:46 ] Trii Seo > Each type used its own control mechanism. And each era, sometimes, changed their operating parameters. What was true of an Ani-era magnetic storage controller, was corrected within Sleeper era mechanisms.
[ 2018.01.20 19:28:10 ] Trii Seo > /emote begins greying out some of the dots, moving them on the edges drawn by lines > And that is before we even consider faults they carried. First we had to deal with a physical fault – something most of you may be familiar with.
[ 2018.01.20 19:29:03 ] Trii Seo > …Those of you, especially, who managed to cook a solid state or slipped on a bannana peel while carrying a stack of legacy magnetic units that had vital business data from five decades ago.
[ 2018.01.20 19:30:04 ] Khaprice > /emote nods, wincing
[ 2018.01.20 19:30:20 ] Nomistrav > /emote cants his head with a raised brow
[ 2018.01.20 19:30:25 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote tries to hide a smile
[ 2018.01.20 19:30:29 ] Trii Seo > /emote merges the dots into a cube above her head, and adds a funnel below. Multiple paths lead from it – and the dots begin to trickle down. Greyed out fall out the back on a pile, while others are categorized and moved to a path.
[ 2018.01.20 19:31:45 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote looks with interest despite how he doesnt seem surprised thus far. He supports his chin with one of his hands looking at Trii and her presentation.
[ 2018.01.20 19:32:24 ] Trii Seo > The selection process was the first step of the T-DART device. After we defined the characteristics of each device – it sorted each into a respective stack by type and era, as different methods of handling data transfer had to be used for some of them.
[ 2018.01.20 19:32:52 ] Trii Seo > …It turns out that disdain for standards is not a thing common only for our manufacturers.
[ 2018.01.20 19:34:54 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote tries hide a smile
[ 2018.01.20 19:35:00 ] Trii Seo > Now I’d like to tell you that it was simple to recover everything and it was plug and play but, that would be a blatant lie. Ani era solid states contributed to a few new grey hair on a few skulls.
[ 2018.01.20 19:35:58 ] Trii Seo > Offset by our first miracle of a discovery – one that, given luck and further investigation, may find use within our own binary storages.
[ 2018.01.20 19:37:02 ] Trii Seo > /emote zooms in on one of the conduits – showing dimmed dots lighting up as they were connected and given power > Apparently someone out there was kind enough to design a very good error correcting mechanism.
[ 2018.01.20 19:37:44 ] Trii Seo > …while not flawless, its success rate was surprising in comparison to how little capacity it lost due to space reserved for sector checksums or outright data backup.
[ 2018.01.20 19:40:54 ] Trii Seo > /emote scrolls the image forward > Next comes the most tedious process. Each block of each storage unit is tested against others. Should we find two complete units, we use valid data from one to fill in what the other is missing.
[ 2018.01.20 19:42:44 ] Trii Seo > /emote begins to roll forward with each conduit samples mix and match, some are discarded, leaving less and less relics, but each shining brighter. > The recovery process continues until we can solidly verify that all data is intact as much as we can…
[ 2018.01.20 19:43:43 ] Trii Seo > /emote steps back, letting the image shown at the beginning display again – each cluster unfolds from a simple icon into different racks of equipment. > Then we begin to test the data and its behavior against replicated environments.
[ 2018.01.20 19:44:11 ] Che Biko > /emote glances around for a moment.
[ 2018.01.20 19:44:51 ] Trii Seo > /emote points and zooms in for to the first cluster – showing a downright ancient amalgam of parts, filled in with new technology. > The Evergreen Ancient cluster, I’ve relived my days as a junker and salvager when helping build it.
[ 2018.01.20 19:46:42 ] Trii Seo > With how much has been documented of that era, coupled with hardware easily available through various means, constructing hardware to run our tests was an easy task. Much – like our next contender.
[ 2018.01.20 19:47:01 ] Trii Seo > /emote scrolls to the right, showing a bustling blue mess of cables and familiar black structures. > The Dormant cluster!
[ 2018.01.20 19:48:17 ] Trii Seo > /emote chuckles > Alright, it wasn’t as trivial. This is our primary testing cluster, hosting what we consider closest to a replicated Virtual Enclave environment.
[ 2018.01.20 19:48:39 ] Trii Seo > /emote glances at the audience > Those things fall apart when you look at them the wrong way.
[ 2018.01.20 19:49:32 ] Nomistrav > /emote smirks gently, shaking his head to stave a bit of laughter
[ 2018.01.20 19:49:57 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote chuckles looking at Nomistrav and then back at the stage
[ 2018.01.20 19:50:22 ] Trii Seo > /emote smirks as she scrolls again, to the final component – a towering, black structure without any markings. > The Tyrant cluster. Our biggest mystery, and built as a hypothetical testing platform. We know little about Drifter systems…
[ 2018.01.20 19:50:51 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote stares amazed
[ 2018.01.20 19:51:16 ] Trii Seo > /emote lets out a chuckle > …But hey, here be dragons, right?
[ 2018.01.20 19:51:57 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote has to smile a little at that.
[ 2018.01.20 19:52:19 ] Trii Seo > /emote zooms out to all three clusters and dots begin to split – each copied into the each testing cluster and blinking for a while before vanishing > Simulation is ran in two modes, primarily – pure logical data recovery, and runtime.
[ 2018.01.20 19:53:41 ] Trii Seo > In data mode we attempt to locate actual file structures stored within the relic. In runtime mode, we identify programs within the stored data and attempt to locate their entry point.
[ 2018.01.20 19:54:24 ] Trii Seo > /emote smiles zooming into a dot in the Dormant cluster that freezes for a second, then expands and another one appears next to it. Then another. Links begin to form between the three as it begins to establish shared memory.
[ 2018.01.20 19:54:28 ] Trii Seo > …Then we run them.
[ 2018.01.20 19:55:37 ] Trii Seo > /emote points at the animation > You’re sitting on that, and I can see a few nervous smiles. Ibrahim, why don’t you talk about that part.
[ 2018.01.20 19:56:27 ] Ayallah > /emote seems to have long ago checked out during this highly technical lecture.
[ 2018.01.20 19:56:54 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote smiles, “Thank you. Please, don’t be nervous.”
[ 2018.01.20 19:56:58 ] Francophobia > /emote continues to follow with interest.
[ 2018.01.20 19:57:09 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “It was known from the very beginning of this project that there was a responsibility to conduct all research in accordance with the law and the highest safety standards.”
[ 2018.01.20 19:57:18 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote connects his hands together and smiles with interest
[ 2018.01.20 19:57:38 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “Sleeper and Drifter systems are highly advanced, adaptable, and resilient; improper handling is irresponsible and potentially dangerous.”
[ 2018.01.20 19:58:01 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “There is the potential to trigger security programming, risk compromise of systems due to intrusion software, access infomorph fragments in a hazardous manner, et cetera.”
[ 2018.01.20 19:58:17 ] Che Biko > /emote watches it all with interest and seems to follow along quite well, at least he seems to lack the awe some others are displaying on their faces.
[ 2018.01.20 19:58:34 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “There are even more extreme hazards such as coming across self-aware or pseudo-self-aware artificial entities, infection by neuromemetic worms, or other, unknown, coercive infowar technologies.”
[ 2018.01.20 19:58:47 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote enters quietly, tucking by the real wall, attention on the presenter.
[ 2018.01.20 19:58:52 ] Nomistrav > /emote leans his weight on one elbow against an arm-rest, placing his thumb against his jaw and concealing his mouth with his hand as he watches
[ 2018.01.20 19:59:29 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “To ensure a maximally safe testing environment we have adopted a number of boxing procedures such as total electromagnetic shielding and prohibiting electronic connections extending beyond the testing area.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:00:13 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “No storage devices may enter or exit, all programs are executed in virtual environments with the capability to limit the accessibility of hardware as well as allowing us to artificially throttle program execution speed.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:00:43 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “All personnel are subject to a two-man rule for access and they undergo regularly scheduled evaluations and brain scans.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:01:14 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote looks seriously, “Our public filing pursuant to DIR/O15.8473 showing our commitment to Omega-One-Five compliance is available on the GalNet.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:01:55 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote switches to all smiles, “Now, back to Miss Seo to share some preliminary, but exciting, results that have been observed in our testing so far.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:02:32 ] Khaprice > /emote claps excitedly
[ 2018.01.20 20:02:53 ] Che Biko > /emote has half a smirk come on his lips at the mention of Omega-One-Five.
[ 2018.01.20 20:02:56 ] Valerie Valate > /emote writes something down about the meme worm menace
[ 2018.01.20 20:03:23 ] Trii Seo > /emote steps back with a smile > Where do I even begin. Yes, you probably expect me to say that it is very killy and very murdery and will make your brain into a slurpee.
[ 2018.01.20 20:04:23 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote talks to himself > Why the hell i swapped the cybernetic processor for a social adaptation chip… I’m understanding nothing and this is not the climax to hit on ladies either. Doh
[ 2018.01.20 20:04:51 ] Trii Seo > /emote looks at the audience with a wide grin > Honestly. I’ll let the part where I haven’t turned it into a weapon to kill everyone in the name of my glorious nor-er, southern space empire speak for its killiness.
[ 2018.01.20 20:05:47 ] Khaprice > /emote murmers to Franc > I don’t trust those Drone-y Cerebral Accelerators, that’s for sure…
[ 2018.01.20 20:06:29 ] Trii Seo > /emote holds out her to hold a holographic bucket of relics > This, is a few hundred relics we expect the recovery process to fully work on, basing on our estimates. It has increased since my last projection by 0,1%
[ 2018.01.20 20:07:38 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote keeps on observing Trii and her presentation with interest
[ 2018.01.20 20:08:12 ] Trii Seo > /emote fades the bucket away, along with the cluster and relics, showing a garbled mess of data. It hurts the brain to even look at it, let alone understand it > This structure shows promise to recover some actual stored data.
[ 2018.01.20 20:08:43 ] Nomistrav > /emote narrows his eyes abruptly at the mention of ‘0.1%’. Glancing about as if checking the rest of the audience’s reaction, he seems to check his own sanity.
[ 2018.01.20 20:09:00 ] Trii Seo > …we are working on translating, and recovering its full content. Sadly, we’re lacking in linguistic interns who specialize in ancient gibberish.
[ 2018.01.20 20:09:41 ] Francophobia > /emote nods to Khaprice as if he is not sure either. and catches Nomi’s nervous glancing out of the corner of his eye.
[ 2018.01.20 20:10:11 ] Trii Seo > /emote looks up to the display that sees a single, red dot. It grows to envelop the audience and the entire room – swamping them in lines upon lines of instructions and data.
[ 2018.01.20 20:11:11 ] Trii Seo > /emote watches as a few lines flash, before the one right in front of Nomistrav lights up.
[ 2018.01.20 20:12:47 ] Trii Seo > /emote follows the jump as it goes to an instruction in the ceiling, right beside her a group of simulated registries begin changing. Flashing before the eyes of the audience, the simulation takes speed.
[ 2018.01.20 20:12:54 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote looks at Nomistrav sitting next to the man and smiles
[ 2018.01.20 20:13:54 ] Trii Seo > /emote zooms it out, showing the small green dot having formed three others – and constructing a new, blue one next to themselves. > What you’re seeing is the first, and most basic runtime we have discovered.
[ 2018.01.20 20:13:54 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote starts watching with renewed interest
[ 2018.01.20 20:15:18 ] Ninavask > /emote arches an eyebrow and listens to the presentation with curiosity.*
[ 2018.01.20 20:15:35 ] Nomistrav > /emote glances over the beaming light as if with little interest, his posture unchanging. His eyes are intent and focused, however.
[ 2018.01.20 20:15:57 ] Trii Seo > /emote folds the entirety of the simulation – now growing in blue and green, with bits of red appearing here and there, new links forming at microsecond pace – to hover over the palm of her hand > Our understanding of the unknown changed.
[ 2018.01.20 20:16:42 ] Ayallah > /emote seems more interested in the lecture when pretty graphics are on display
[ 2018.01.20 20:17:24 ] Trii Seo > We have, as the project went on, ventured out where the map marked “here be dragons” and saw that there were not any, not beyond difficulties we encountered on our journey.
[ 2018.01.20 20:18:39 ] Trii Seo > /emote smiles as she closes her palm into a fist, causing the hologram to fade out > What we discovered was another stretch of endless unknown. And, well, honestly – some of us are talking about saying that here, certainly, be dragons.
[ 2018.01.20 20:21:22 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote steps to the podium. “There will be a chance to ask Trii and Lord Tash-Murkon question in a bit. Now, I would like to welcome to the stage, our own Jaret Victorian who will be joined by Dr. Mizhir Starsurge.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:21:45 ] Lasairiona Raske > For the Research and Technology Survey portion of tonight’s presentations.
[ 2018.01.20 20:22:51 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote waves and smiles “Hello, Seycon! Glad to see everyone here today, hope you are enjoying your time!”
[ 2018.01.20 20:22:59 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote applauds again before removing a datapad from her coat pocket.
[ 2018.01.20 20:23:21 ] Jaret Victorian > My name is Jaret Victorian , I am joined here today by Dr. Mizhir Starsurge for a brief overview of the previously unannounced research projects, some of which may turn out to be quite fruitful in the future.
[ 2018.01.20 20:23:27 ] Jev North > /emote raises an eyebrow at Trii’s exit, but shifts her attention back to Jaret and Mizhir.
[ 2018.01.20 20:23:54 ] Jaret Victorian > Our regular pilots may already know that October of the YC118 was regarded as one of the most successful months for ARC’s Hive raids –
[ 2018.01.20 20:24:18 ] Jaret Victorian > as we were lucky enough to recover a badly damaged, but still intact specimen of Drifter’s Lux Kontos weapon.
[ 2018.01.20 20:24:48 ] Jaret Victorian > And while it is indeed a non-functioning unit, it is perfect for a first-hand analysis, supplemented by our extensive library of holo recordings –
[ 2018.01.20 20:25:04 ] Ayallah > /emote is eager to get a head start on her glass of wine before the highly-technical conference continues, drinking quickly.
[ 2018.01.20 20:25:18 ] Jaret Victorian > a project spearheaded by our then newly acquired team lead K’aran S’jet under the supervision of Uriel Paradisi Anteovnuecci
[ 2018.01.20 20:25:27 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote links an image to the screen.
[ 2018.01.20 20:26:22 ] Jaret Victorian > As per the initial goals, our colleagues split the device into four parts: Hull, Stabilizer, Deflector and Emitter.
[ 2018.01.20 20:26:38 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote links the next image
[ 2018.01.20 20:26:44 ] Khaprice > /emote nods, a dark look on her face > Serious stuff..
[ 2018.01.20 20:27:11 ] Ayallah > /emote watches this part with interest, still occasionally sipping her wine.
[ 2018.01.20 20:27:21 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote nods her head. while letting out a small “hmmmh”
[ 2018.01.20 20:27:33 ] Jaret Victorian > The rear part of the device resembles a common propulsion unit that may be seen on conventional Sentry drones, such as Gallente Garde.
[ 2018.01.20 20:28:13 ] Jaret Victorian > While the conventional shunt thrusters were seemingly absent, the rods on the rear part of the Lux Kontos device were quite active, which led K’aran’s team to believe that these may be miniaturized propulsion rods,
[ 2018.01.20 20:28:53 ] Jaret Victorian > – such as previously seen on Drifter Battleship.
[ 2018.01.20 20:29:27 ] Jaret Victorian > We were unable to determine their exact power, however the available footage captured during engagements led us to believe these may be used mainly for stabilization and target guidance purposes –
[ 2018.01.20 20:29:36 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote links next image
[ 2018.01.20 20:30:14 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote looks at the image with interest
[ 2018.01.20 20:30:16 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote stares at the animation > Wow
[ 2018.01.20 20:30:38 ] Jaret Victorian > While the weapon itself may be held in place by Drifter’s equivalent of a tractor beam. You may notice that it is held tightly in place and precise position while the weapon is not actively firing or tracking a target.
[ 2018.01.20 20:30:53 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote gives a small gasp “that thing looks powerfull”
[ 2018.01.20 20:30:55 ] Jev North > /emote makes a small, appreciative “mh” sound at the clarity of the footage.
[ 2018.01.20 20:31:37 ] Jaret Victorian > The possible, but still highly controversial case of massive recoil can be observed with the available footage, presumably while the tractor beam is recalibrating the weapon’s position at the end of firing cycle.
[ 2018.01.20 20:32:02 ] Aria Jenneth > *watches avidly*
[ 2018.01.20 20:32:36 ] Jaret Victorian > The four Deflectors present around the shaft of the Lux Kontos seem to act as containment for the weapon’s discharge or some sort of precise aim assist mechanism.
[ 2018.01.20 20:32:44 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote nods, swiping a few quick notes.
[ 2018.01.20 20:33:17 ] Jaret Victorian > According to available footage, they may generate a containment field similar to what we see used for Drifter Battleship propulsion-
[ 2018.01.20 20:33:37 ] Jaret Victorian > with the help of Propulsion Rods.
[ 2018.01.20 20:33:45 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote links next image
[ 2018.01.20 20:34:34 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote looks at the audience
[ 2018.01.20 20:34:49 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote stares at the screen
[ 2018.01.20 20:34:59 ] Che Biko > /emote cocks his head a little.
[ 2018.01.20 20:35:06 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote smiles
[ 2018.01.20 20:35:14 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote nods apreciating the technology
[ 2018.01.20 20:35:22 ] Francophobia > /emote jabs Khaprice in the ribs lightly and mutters a question about what it is like to be hit by one.
[ 2018.01.20 20:35:33 ] Alexi Hellsing > /emote smiles at the equipment shown during the presentaion
[ 2018.01.20 20:35:43 ] Jaret Victorian > And that is where we hit a dead end for now, unfortunately.
[ 2018.01.20 20:35:49 ] Ayallah > /emote is peering at the image content, far more engaged than she was during the section before.
[ 2018.01.20 20:36:04 ] Jaret Victorian > Further study requires an actually online and operational specimen to perform a discharge in a contained environment.
[ 2018.01.20 20:36:39 ] Jaret Victorian > The Hull and Emitter parts of the Lux Kontos still remain a blackbox to us. With us unable to acquire a second specimen the penetration tests were deemed unsafe for the weapon itself and the staff involved.
[ 2018.01.20 20:37:16 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote smiles “But I’m quite sure our colleagues from CONCORD made a better progress than us on that front seeing their implementation of their new fleet.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:37:35 ] Khaprice > /emote chuckles > Fo’ sho’.
[ 2018.01.20 20:37:40 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote nods to Mizhir “Now, off to Mizhir Starsurge!”
[ 2018.01.20 20:37:41 ] Ayallah > /emote touches her finger to her lip as she listens
[ 2018.01.20 20:38:09 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote applauds
[ 2018.01.20 20:38:20 ] Mizhir > /emote smiles at Jaret Victorian . “Thank you, Mr. Victorian”
[ 2018.01.20 20:38:39 ] Mizhir > Greetings all and thank you for joining.
[ 2018.01.20 20:38:50 ] Nomistrav > /emote appears to have closed his eyes, his brows low as if in deep thought
[ 2018.01.20 20:38:54 ] Mizhir > Almost 3 years ago the first Drifter Autopsy Report was released. Our work back then was cutting edge as we were the first ever to recover a Drifter corpse, and it unlocked new possibilities in understanding their nature.
[ 2018.01.20 20:39:13 ] Mizhir > However, it quickly became clear to us that their physiology was beyond what we imagined, and a sea of questions were raised each time we managed to answer one.
[ 2018.01.20 20:39:47 ] Che Biko > /emote smiles a slight warm smile at Miz for a moment at the mention of “3 years ago”
[ 2018.01.20 20:40:03 ] Mizhir > This lead to countless of hours of work but did also give rise to plenty of side projects that sprung from our data. But unfortunately, it also lead to a lot of dead ends due to the complex nature of the drifters.
[ 2018.01.20 20:40:35 ] Mizhir > Before I move on I would like to mention that Apollo tends to take it personal when I talk about his dead body. So I hope the security team is prepared. Just in case he decides to pay us a visit like he did in Yulai.
[ 2018.01.20 20:40:41 ] Mizhir > /emote smiles
[ 2018.01.20 20:40:53 ] Makoto Priano > Personal data pads are pinged with a link to the DED-supervised autopsy report.
[ 2018.01.20 20:41:19 ] Mizhir > Anyways. One of the interesting discoveries were the radiation from the blood. It was unclear whether the radiation was a waste product from other reactions or it played a role itself and many hypotheses were formed. Yet no solid answers were found.
[ 2018.01.20 20:41:34 ] Mizhir > Until…
[ 2018.01.20 20:41:56 ] Mizhir > /emote picks up an Antipharmakon Thureo from her bag and balances it on her fingers. “Until I took a look at these, the Antipharmakon boosters.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:42:37 ] Mizhir > It turned out that they have a low-grade radiation themselves that matches the signature of the drifter blood radiation when you look at quantum levels.
[ 2018.01.20 20:43:11 ] Mizhir > This discovery put us one step closer to understand the nature of the drifters and it lead to my current research project: Using this new knowledge to better understand the Antipharmakon boosters.
[ 2018.01.20 20:43:42 ] Mizhir > The Antipharmakon boosters have been widely popular among combat capsuleers. However they have only been available through raids on Drifter Hives or through Sisters of EVE who most likely got it from the same source.
[ 2018.01.20 20:44:17 ] Mizhir > This means that currently no one has managed to manufacture Antipharmakon boosters but this project could potentially make it possible.
[ 2018.01.20 20:44:23 ] Nomistrav > /emote leans forward with an intent stare at Mizhir, not missing a single word she says.
[ 2018.01.20 20:44:56 ] Mizhir > But my ambitions go further than that. Many technologies that have helped mankind have originally started as military related projects and I intend to do the same.
[ 2018.01.20 20:44:59 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote looks and hears with interest all the while taking notes
[ 2018.01.20 20:45:00 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote looks at the booster with a new interest
[ 2018.01.20 20:45:37 ] Mizhir > One of the traits of the Antipharmakon Boosters is their highly selective nature. This nature allows them to achieve their effect without any side effects at all. A trait that is highly desired in the medical world.
[ 2018.01.20 20:45:59 ] Ayallah > /emote listens intently, her glass beside her temporarily forgotten.
[ 2018.01.20 20:46:17 ] Mizhir > And it is my dream to use this for a new generation of medicine for the people of New Eden.
[ 2018.01.20 20:49:57 ] Lasairiona Raske > Next, please welcome to the stage with a Drifter and Sleeper Activity Update, Makoto Priano. *She steps back, clapping*
[ 2018.01.20 20:50:31 ] Makoto Priano > Facilities staff in dress uniform whisk a stool to the stage, setting it behind the lectern, as Makoto enters from backstage.
[ 2018.01.20 20:51:02 ] Makoto Priano > /emote takes position at the lectern, settling in for the long haul. “Good evening, pilots.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:51:18 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote applauds and tucks the datapad back into her jacket.
[ 2018.01.20 20:51:55 ] Makoto Priano > “You’ve heard a bit about the research projects we have on-going, and our researchers’ aspirations for them. Let’s now get to meatier, more combative matters, before we convene for a full and free-wheeling discussion.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:52:19 ] Makoto Priano > “Since we last convened in mid YC118, the Drifter crisis has both been at a stand-still, and evolving in remarkable ways. It’s a troubling duality, but I suppose none of us are surprised by troubling developments in the case of the Vigilant Tyrannos.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:52:22 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote quick and mostly quietly gets up and get a new cup of tea
[ 2018.01.20 20:52:40 ] Ayallah > /emote scowls
[ 2018.01.20 20:52:48 ] Makoto Priano > “You may all remember the events of November YC118. The Vigilant Tyrannos attacked research facilities and defense fleets across New Eden, as they continue to do occasionally to this day.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:53:16 ] Makoto Priano > “The primary target appeared to be the Sisters of EVE, whose novel cloning techniques were reverse-engineered from Sleeper or Drifter technologies.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:53:41 ] Makoto Priano > “While we continue to benefit from these technologies, the Vigilant Tyrannos remain intent on limiting development as much as possible. It is clear that New Eden’s technological advancement is not in keeping with their plans, such as we know them.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:54:15 ] Makoto Priano > “More recently, we witnessed the unexpected exposure of numerous Sleeper enclaves in known space, where Drifters had been engaged and destroyed by an unknown force. Given that no wreckage was found indicating who the hostile force was, we only wonder.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:54:54 ] Makoto Priano > “It could even be that the Drifters had been engaged by Sleeper defenses, or had turned on each other, or… the list goes on. You’ve of course already heard of some on-going research as relates to this.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:55:21 ] Makoto Priano > “Our Hive operations have continued unabated. We continue to monitor the Nexus and the Hives, and have continued periodic entosis testing of hardware in those systems. For this all, though, our research in the Hive systems has been at a standstill.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:55:42 ] Makoto Priano > “Given that the Drifters appear to route our ships to the perimeter defenses while their salvage operations go elsewhere, it’s perhaps no surprise that we haven’t made as much progress as we’d like.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:56:04 ] Makoto Priano > “The real question, then, is how to defeat the Drifter IFF systems, or to navigate potentially tri-nodal wormhole systems, or perhaps even the Nexus Rift itself. Given that even the Drifters appear to have difficulty with that last one, however…”
[ 2018.01.20 20:56:39 ] Makoto Priano > “As an aside, it has been theorized that the vulnerability of Drifter Hives deployed in known space is due to the energy requirements for traversing, or the difficulty in attempting a traversal of, a Nexus rift.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:57:11 ] Makoto Priano > “At the same time, despite all this, our combat doctrine continues to perform admirably despite attempts by the Drifters to adapt. Each time they adapt, we’ve adjusted and maintained combat superiority. As you are all aware, ARC hive operations have–
[ 2018.01.20 20:57:19 ] Makoto Priano > –been largely lossless for some time now.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:57:32 ] Makoto Priano > “Even without capital support, we can conceivable engage a dozen A/A Drifters and win out the fight with no loss, though required doctrine changes based on the engagement profile.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:57:46 ] Makoto Priano > “That’s only fitting, of course. Engagement profiles determine doctrine.” A shrug, a gesture, indicative.
[ 2018.01.20 20:58:27 ] Makoto Priano > “The Arithmos, in small quantities, can be engaged effectively, as Vulfpeck fleets ably demonstrate. Unfortunately, in cases such as the J-sig otherwise known as Run, large Arithmos concentrations are difficult to engage by any Capsuleer fleet.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:58:48 ] Makoto Priano > “To be frank, we’d need a proper Bomber campaign, or else supercapital deployment, and I wouldn’t bet on either of those.”
[ 2018.01.20 20:59:20 ] Makoto Priano > “So, the question is: what next? Do we attempt boardings of the engineering facilities in Drifter Hive systems? Do we focus our efforts on the secondary wormholes and spatial rifts in Drifter Hive systems?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:00:22 ] Makoto Priano > “With that mixed news, my prepared remarks end. Let’s go now to questions and the panel. My apologies, of course, for the brevity of the report, but I suspect you all would like to dig into this all with us.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:00:35 ] Makoto Priano > Still seated at the lectern, Priano looks to Lasairiona.
[ 2018.01.20 21:01:01 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote applauds as Makoto finishes her presentation
[ 2018.01.20 21:01:33 ] Po Huit > /emote applauds, and goes to grab more coffee.
[ 2018.01.20 21:01:35 ] Francophobia > /emote applauds as well.
[ 2018.01.20 21:01:36 ] Che Biko > /emote claps a little.
[ 2018.01.20 21:01:42 ] Francophobia > /emote responds belatedly but enthusiastically to Khaprice “It is very reassuring to see, I am a bit surprised the think there could be humanitarian applications to drifter tech.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:01:44 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote nods, making her way onstage, supervising the placement of more chairs.
[ 2018.01.20 21:01:47 ] Khaprice > /emote claps cheerfully > Lossless so long as the gorram Slaver popo don’t catch me, aye…
[ 2018.01.20 21:01:58 ] Ayallah > /emote still is frowning, lost in thought as Lasa takes the stage
[ 2018.01.20 21:02:08 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote stands up and eyes where he might find some coffee
[ 2018.01.20 21:02:14 ] Alexi Hellsing > /emote applauds with the audience before pausing to look at her palms
[ 2018.01.20 21:02:18 ] Jev North > /emote applauds briefly, then stretches her arms to the side, rotates her wrists.
[ 2018.01.20 21:02:30 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote directs the speakers to sit with a smile.
[ 2018.01.20 21:03:05 ] Makoto Priano > “Excellent. Ms. Seo, Mr. Mehoff, Lord Tash-Murkon, Ms. Starsurge? Please, join me for the panel.” A stage smile before she sips at her water, and settles in again.
[ 2018.01.20 21:03:14 ] Mizhir > /emote returns to the stage and follows Lasa’s directions to her seat
[ 2018.01.20 21:03:19 ] Parious MeHoff > /emote walks to his stool and takes his seat.
[ 2018.01.20 21:03:35 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote does so too.
[ 2018.01.20 21:03:44 ] Ayallah > /emote waves to have her wine glass refilled as she shifts in her seat, still scowling.
[ 2018.01.20 21:03:51 ] Makoto Priano > “Is Ms. Seo still around?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:04:04 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote having found some coffee as the speakers are getting ready he retakes his seat looking briefly for familiar faces at the audience before turning his attention at the stage
[ 2018.01.20 21:04:09 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote nods politely to Makoto, taking a position stage left.
[ 2018.01.20 21:04:15 ] Makoto Priano > “Hm. Well, she can rejoin us momentarily. At the very least, I can provide manaagement-perspective information on that project.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:04:35 ] Makoto Priano > “Alright. Before we get settled in too much, I do have some housekeeping.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:05:08 ] Che Biko > /emote yawns, leaning back in his seat.
[ 2018.01.20 21:05:11 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote Looks nervously over at ayallah, while thinking
[ 2018.01.20 21:05:18 ] Makoto Priano > “In addition to the topics covered so far, there are some things that might provoke conversation. For instance, the FIO lawsuit may be an area of interest. Recent SARO operations are also of interest. The Kyonoke Inquest at large might merit some–
[ 2018.01.20 21:05:46 ] Makoto Priano > –inquiries. And, of course, our various educational and outreach ventures, as indicated by the Discourse, Remember Myrskaa!, or Peace, Progress, Prosperity!.”
*Q&A SESSION BEGINS – UNEDITED BEYOND THIS POINT*
[ 2018.01.20 21:06:17 ] Che Biko > /emote smiles slightly.
[ 2018.01.20 21:06:20 ] Makoto Priano > “So. Now’s your chance, pilots. Questions?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:06:28 ] Che Biko > /emote raises his hand.
[ 2018.01.20 21:06:36 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote looks at Che
[ 2018.01.20 21:06:55 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote motions to Che. “Mr. Biko?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:07:27 ] Thaila Lemrenoy > /emote shuffles in her seat and makes note on the datapad. Very closely paying attention to the conversation*
[ 2018.01.20 21:08:08 ] Che Biko > You mentioned a J system dubbed Run. Is that the otherwise not so special system which for some reason has over 50 Drifter battleships in it, and do you have any theories as to why so many are found there?
[ 2018.01.20 21:09:11 ] Makoto Priano > “Precisely that. It’s a shattered system, so some of the usual Capsuleer tricks for clearing concentrations of Arithmos don’t apply. Personally, I think it’s just that Capsuleers continued to hit Sleeper facilities, and the Drifter response grew to–
[ 2018.01.20 21:09:36 ] Makoto Priano > –point that it was finally effective. I’ll admit to thinking there’s nothing special about it, save that the count of Arithmos is very high indeed.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:09:49 ] Makoto Priano > “Any personal theories, though?” She looks to the other panelists.
[ 2018.01.20 21:10:38 ] Mizhir > /emote shakes her head
[ 2018.01.20 21:10:51 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote sips his coffee looking as the question was interesting
[ 2018.01.20 21:10:52 ] Parious MeHoff > “I have never been to Run. It might be worth a through search of the system”
[ 2018.01.20 21:11:24 ] Makoto Priano > “If anyone’s able to provide a route, we could easily dispatch a scout, it’s true.” She nods.
[ 2018.01.20 21:11:46 ] Khaprice > Standard Capsuleer foolishness sounds about right, though I guess it could be something more sinister. Warrants investigting though!
[ 2018.01.20 21:12:28 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote arches a brow at Khaprice.
[ 2018.01.20 21:12:49 ] Po Huit > /emote raises his hand diffidently.
[ 2018.01.20 21:12:56 ] Makoto Priano > A nod, a shrug. “Not the most exciting answer, Mr. Biko, but do hope that suffices.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:13:03 ] Khaprice > /emote goes to raise a hand, qualis a little under Lasa’s look
[ 2018.01.20 21:13:28 ] Che Biko > /emote smiles slightly as he nods once.
[ 2018.01.20 21:13:35 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote indicates to Po Huit. “Sir, your question?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:13:49 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote offers a quick smile to Khaprice.
[ 2018.01.20 21:14:04 ] Po Huit > Just a comment. Our folks at Signal Cartel spent some time in the Shattered Drifter Wormholes recently.
[ 2018.01.20 21:14:30 ] Che Biko > /emote turns his head to Po, looking at him with interest.
[ 2018.01.20 21:14:40 ] Po Huit > Just wanted to say that we’d be happy to help out with running them down and poking around in them if you folks want to take a look.
[ 2018.01.20 21:15:12 ] Makoto Priano > “Absolutely. We’ll have to talk afterward.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:15:13 ] Po Huit > We were checking out the idea of using them as a transport network along the lines of Thera.
[ 2018.01.20 21:15:21 ] Po Huit > That looks really hard, though.
[ 2018.01.20 21:15:43 ] Makoto Priano > An interested sound. “There’s been similar talk regarding the Drifter Hive systems, but there’s an obvious hang-up there.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:16:29 ] Ayallah > /emote purses her lips, attempting to look innocent.
[ 2018.01.20 21:16:35 ] Po Huit > “Yeah, Drifters are Drifters. There’s also the short wormhole durations, and the huge volume of wormholes to scan.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:17:08 ] Makoto Priano > “Precisely. Imagine that, instead of maintaining Thera maps, you’re maintaining six Thera maps.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:17:10 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote nods at how interesting all that sounds and continues to take a sip from his coffee
[ 2018.01.20 21:17:23 ] Khaprice > /emote puts up her hand with a little more confidence
[ 2018.01.20 21:17:25 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote catches Makoto’s eye with a should we move on? look.
[ 2018.01.20 21:17:26 ] Po Huit > “Anyway, if you’re looking for a specific J-space system, we can probably help.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:17:52 ] Makoto Priano > /emote nods to Lasairiona.
[ 2018.01.20 21:17:54 ] Ayallah > /emote perks an eyebrow at that from over her wine glass
[ 2018.01.20 21:18:16 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote smiles at Po Huit, before glance to Khaprice. She smiles and nods. “Your question?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:19:48 ] Khaprice > /emote coughs > MIzhir, ma’am, I was just wondering if there might be some application for your work on the Antipharmakon with the ongoing struggle to deal with Vitoxin?
[ 2018.01.20 21:20:22 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote raises his eyebrows with interest at that question
[ 2018.01.20 21:21:56 ] Mizhir > The project is still in the very early stages so we cannot say where we will end. However it is indeed an excellent idea for applying the results and I will keep that in the back of my head once we start getting sufficient data. …..
[ 2018.01.20 21:22:38 ] Mizhir > … even if we will succeed it will be a long process so there may be other options that surface before us. Still, thank you for your suggestion.
[ 2018.01.20 21:22:48 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote nods slowly at Mizhir’s response, eyes fluttering in thought.
[ 2018.01.20 21:22:55 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote slowly raises hand
[ 2018.01.20 21:23:06 ] Valerie Valate > /emote has questions.
[ 2018.01.20 21:23:06 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote raises a hand after Maira
[ 2018.01.20 21:23:07 ] Khaprice > /emote nods > Mmh! Excellent, thank you too.
[ 2018.01.20 21:23:16 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote nods, turning back to the audience, indicating to Maira Blackfire. “Yes?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:23:42 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote What would you say have the greatest risk involved boarding a drifter hive or focusing on the wormhole and rifts? I personly find the first option more dangerous the latter
[ 2018.01.20 21:25:22 ] Mizhir > /emote raises her hand to signal that she would like to answer Maira’s question
[ 2018.01.20 21:25:35 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote nods at mizhir
[ 2018.01.20 21:25:37 ] Makoto Priano > “Go for it, Mizhir.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:26:54 ] Mizhir > Regarding bording a drifter hive: The Drifter Autopsy taught us that their physiology is vastly different than ours and that they contain substanses that are highly toxic to living tissue. So a drifter hive could potentially contain a high amount of …
[ 2018.01.20 21:27:39 ] Mizhir > … these substanses that could provide a huge threat to any boarding teams. Not to meantion that the quantum radiation is deadly at high doses as well and is difficult to protect against.
[ 2018.01.20 21:27:52 ] Ayallah > /emote listens intently
[ 2018.01.20 21:28:27 ] Makoto Priano > “I’ll admit I’d prefer to focus any initial boarding operations on outlying facilities. Ideally, this wouldn’t be a Hive itself, which is too massive to reliably search, but instead enclaves and engineering facilities closely associated with spacetime–
[ 2018.01.20 21:28:30 ] Che Biko > /emote raises his left eyebrow at Miz a bit above it’s usual slightly elevated position.
[ 2018.01.20 21:28:33 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote nods “yes of course”
[ 2018.01.20 21:28:39 ] Makoto Priano > –manipulation research. There are a number of those, even outside the hive itself.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:29:17 ] Ayallah > /emote does something rapidly on her datapad
[ 2018.01.20 21:29:27 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote flicks her eyes over to Jev and gives her a wink.
[ 2018.01.20 21:29:28 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote i thank both of you for the answer
[ 2018.01.20 21:29:52 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote resumes being professional. “Mr. Sepphiros, I believe you had a question?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:29:58 ] Makoto Priano > “Of course, this isn’t to say rift- and wormhole-focused study is any better. While many of them show signs of being artificial, independent Capsuleers lack the ability to traverse wormholes as well as, say, the Sisters of EVE or the Sansha.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:30:08 ] Makoto Priano > And Priano quiets down.
[ 2018.01.20 21:30:15 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote colors slightly.
[ 2018.01.20 21:30:16 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote touches his hands together and asks “My question is pretty generic and thus I dont expect any miracles here and is a question for everyone of you…..but aside the technical new knowledge you acquired from all of this…would you say, +
[ 2018.01.20 21:30:36 ] Valerie Valate > /emote raises a finger to indicate the existence of a question.
[ 2018.01.20 21:30:37 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote Nods in thanks at makoto
[ 2018.01.20 21:31:22 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > “you came any closer in understanding them even more? And if yes….to what degree and what new hypothesis about them and their technologies emerge…?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:31:33 ] Francophobia > /emote raises a full hand briefly to try and pass Val in line.
[ 2018.01.20 21:32:03 ] Makoto Priano > “By ‘understanding them even more,’ what do you mean? In an existential or philosophical sense? In a strategic sense?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:32:08 ] Trii Seo > /emote appears on stage once more > The answer is yes. We have come closer to understanding the Sleeper architecture.
[ 2018.01.20 21:32:38 ] Jev North > /emote considers for a short while, then raises a hand.
[ 2018.01.20 21:32:41 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > “In any form Miss Priano….” looks at Trii as if she would continue?
[ 2018.01.20 21:32:51 ] Makoto Priano > “Oh, well, in a technical sense…” A gesture to Ms. Seo.
[ 2018.01.20 21:32:58 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote taps on a datapad, marking the order of the questioners.
[ 2018.01.20 21:33:15 ] Trii Seo > But flagrant speculation and a hypothesis is not something this division throws around. When we nail it down and dissect to a bit, to an instruction – then we’ll say.
[ 2018.01.20 21:33:43 ] Che Biko > /emote blinks at Trii’s appearance.
[ 2018.01.20 21:34:02 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote nods and smiles at Trii “Well thank you…”
[ 2018.01.20 21:34:05 ] Nomistrav > /emote lifts his wrist mounted datapad and types several characters before swiping his finger
[ 2018.01.20 21:34:32 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote waits to see if there is any further comment.
[ 2018.01.20 21:35:10 ] Makoto Priano > “I will say that in a philosophical sense, we really don’t have much. Lack of communication leaves some positing that Drifters may simply be drones, rogue AI piloting Jovian meatbags. It’s hard to get a grip on ideology when you don’t know if there is–
[ 2018.01.20 21:35:39 ] Makoto Priano > –even one in play. In a strategic sense, though, I think their objective seems to be containment and securing of resources they consider vital: Jovian biomass, and Jovian equipment.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:35:45 ] Makoto Priano > A look, then, to Ms. Raske.
[ 2018.01.20 21:36:06 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote glances to Ms Valate. “Your question?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:36:14 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote nods at both
[ 2018.01.20 21:36:30 ] Valerie Valate > /emote identifies herself. “Professor Valate, Kaztropolis Imperial University”
[ 2018.01.20 21:36:42 ] Valerie Valate > I had questions, about the Corrupted Trinary Relics.
[ 2018.01.20 21:37:02 ] Lasairiona Raske > Can we limit it to one, for the sake of time?
[ 2018.01.20 21:37:04 ] Nomistrav > /emote smirks, muttering to himself, “Imagine that”
[ 2018.01.20 21:37:24 ] Valerie Valate > We could, yes.
[ 2018.01.20 21:37:26 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote looks at Nomistrav and wonders as the two are close in their seats
[ 2018.01.20 21:37:27 ] Trii Seo > Shoot.
[ 2018.01.20 21:38:42 ] Valerie Valate > My question then would be: In your research thus far, have you encountered anything that would appear to be the “neuromemetic worm” that CONCORD et. al. are so afraid of ?
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:04 ] Trii Seo > No.
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:07 ] Sellith > /emote interest appears to spike slightly.
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:13 ] Khaprice > /emote mumbles > Oh my..
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:28 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote waits for further comment from the panel.
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:30 ] Che Biko > /emote chuckles
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:31 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote rises an eyebrow
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:32 ] Jev North > /emote chuckles under her breath.
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:39 ] Nomistrav > /emote slowly turns his head and looks at Ioannis Sepphiros with an expectant bounce of his brows before shaking his head
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:52 ] Makoto Priano > “I think there might be more to it than that. Lord Tash-Murkon?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:53 ] Valerie Valate > I see. Then, what have CONCORD and all found in their research, that has them so worried ?
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:53 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote chuckles and shrugs at Nomistrav
[ 2018.01.20 21:39:59 ] Mizhir > /emote fails to hide her grin
[ 2018.01.20 21:40:02 ] Trii Seo > There’s a term for that, it’s called fearmongering. What I actually managed to show is a runtime that exhibits self-replicating behavior.
[ 2018.01.20 21:40:17 ] Makoto Priano > “And may demonstrate emergent behavior.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:40:32 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote raises a hand, a bit unsure
[ 2018.01.20 21:40:35 ] Makoto Priano > “Ms. Seo, remember Egonics?”\
[ 2018.01.20 21:40:48 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote notes down Verzak’s name.
[ 2018.01.20 21:41:04 ] Trii Seo > Yes, may – static analysis concludes that it does, in fact, contain instruction sets meant to determine the architecture it is currently hosted on.
[ 2018.01.20 21:41:32 ] Trii Seo > As such, the runtime behaved differently on two simulation clusters and managed to successfully launch another instance on both Ancient and Dormant clusters.
[ 2018.01.20 21:41:49 ] Trii Seo > …however, it lays far, far away from a doomsday scenario described by CONCORD.
[ 2018.01.20 21:42:02 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote, perhaps more levelly than Trii, “CONCORD, and we, recognize the potential for information patterns read by hardware or wetware systems to pose potential security concerns. While this has not happened we take the, possibility, remote –
[ 2018.01.20 21:42:27 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > -as it is, seriously and make efforts abide by the safety recommendations and legal guidelines that govern these technologies.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:42:56 ] Makoto Priano > “And, as always, our security procedures are evolving.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:43:09 ] Makoto Priano > “Next?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:43:27 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote nods. “Mr. Phonaga, your question?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:43:39 ] Francophobia > “Ahem. My question is along the same lines as Miss Valate’s, so there may not be much more to add.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:43:45 ] Francophobia > “Mister Tash-Murkon, Miss Seo, you mentioned various dangers in working with the various ‘Clusters’ including potentially several forms of ‘coercive infowar technologies.’, The security measures you outlined seem adequate, …
[ 2018.01.20 21:43:58 ] Francophobia > But did you face any noteworthy difficulties of this kind in the process of recovering usable parts and intact information from relics?
[ 2018.01.20 21:44:03 ] Francophobia > ”
[ 2018.01.20 21:44:09 ] Trii Seo > /emote chuckles > Countless.
[ 2018.01.20 21:44:53 ] Trii Seo > Compressing months of work of quite a lot of staff into less than an hour made it difficult to include issues with determining the format data is stored for instance.
[ 2018.01.20 21:45:24 ] Valerie Valate > /emote remarks quietly “well, at least they’re not just jamming things into their brain willy-nilly like most people do”
[ 2018.01.20 21:46:04 ] Trii Seo > And several cases were classified as obfuscation – deliberate mangling of data to prevent understanding.
[ 2018.01.20 21:46:18 ] Francophobia > /emote nods quietly.
[ 2018.01.20 21:47:27 ] Trii Seo > We have encountered a case in which the drive control mechanism triggered a reaction likely meant to damage the read mechanism as well, but it failed due to our architecture being divergent at that point.
[ 2018.01.20 21:48:40 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote nods, waiting briefly for further comment.
[ 2018.01.20 21:48:42 ] Trii Seo > Due to the nature of all of those events, those already categorized have been moved to security rather than malicious action however, it’s likely that this data was deliberately hidden.
[ 2018.01.20 21:48:52 ] Trii Seo > …or mangled, or, otherwise protected.
[ 2018.01.20 21:49:31 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote turns to the audience. “Next question is from Miss North.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:51:27 ] Jev North > /emote grins, or at least half of her face does. “Oh, hm, One for Ms. Priano.. you mentioned outreach as well as education efforts, and I was wondering which one of the two the destruction of Nauplius’ latest Astrahus was?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:51:47 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote laughs, covering her mouth.
[ 2018.01.20 21:52:00 ] Khaprice > /emote chuckles
[ 2018.01.20 21:52:03 ] Ayallah > /emote scowls
[ 2018.01.20 21:52:08 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote smirks finishing his coffee
[ 2018.01.20 21:52:13 ] Ayallah > /emote glares at Jev
[ 2018.01.20 21:52:14 ] Makoto Priano > “Oh, I like to believe that was educational for him, but you know how it is. Brick walls and all that.” A bit of laughter.
[ 2018.01.20 21:52:20 ] Trii Seo > /emote bursts into laughter and yells out > Entertainmeeeeent!
[ 2018.01.20 21:52:21 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote almost spills her tea
[ 2018.01.20 21:52:31 ] Parious MeHoff > I would like to say that was a humanatarian effort.
[ 2018.01.20 21:52:36 ] Mizhir > /emote grins
[ 2018.01.20 21:52:39 ] Che Biko > /emote raises his eyebrow at Lasa.
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:06 ] Nomistrav > /emote mutters under his breath quietly, shaking his head.
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:16 ] Che Biko > /emote smiles wryly as he glances around.
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:18 ] Jev North > /emote nods to Parious, grins around, and waves off. “That’s clear enough. Thank you.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:22 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote looks around trying to make sense of all this laughter
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:23 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > “We’re actually just trying to inflate the price of Citadels.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:26 ] Makoto Priano > “Next, I think?” A glance to Lasairiona.
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:30 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote serious. “That was a joke.”
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:36 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote waves a hand. “Umm, yes, Nomistrav?”
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:42 ] Lasairiona Raske > Your question, please.
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:43 ] Francophobia > /emote chuckles.
[ 2018.01.20 21:53:45 ] Nomistrav > /emote ‘s attention perks
[ 2018.01.20 21:54:38 ] Nomistrav > I’ve a precursory question before I ask my main one, if only for context. Do the Drifters generate their own wormholes, or do they utilize wormholes that are established through otherwise traditional means?
[ 2018.01.20 21:55:39 ] Parious MeHoff > It would appear that they do generate their own wormholes…
[ 2018.01.20 21:55:49 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote nods at the question of Nomistrav
[ 2018.01.20 21:55:59 ] Parious MeHoff > or at least are able to direct naturally forming wormholes to specific locations.
[ 2018.01.20 21:57:11 ] Nomistrav > Then would it not be more conducive – and less aggressive – to stop the Drifter threat by researching and eliminating their ability to field forces in Known Space? As opposed to researching their armaments? Such knowledge could also be used to temper-
[ 2018.01.20 21:57:19 ] Nomistrav > -Sansha’s incursions, could it not?
[ 2018.01.20 21:57:37 ] Ayallah > /emote purses her lips, thinking.
[ 2018.01.20 21:58:30 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote raises her chin, eyes upward in thought.
[ 2018.01.20 21:58:44 ] Makoto Priano > “There are a few components here. The first is that our spatial manipulation technology is, at present, still significantly below that of the Drifters. To deploye the equivalent of a cynosural field jammer for wormholes is something completely outside–
[ 2018.01.20 21:59:06 ] Makoto Priano > –the scope of current technology. We can increase the rate of natural wormhole formation, but stopping it altogether…”
[ 2018.01.20 21:59:45 ] Makoto Priano > “And then we don’t necessarily know the added difficulty that might be involved in intentional wormhole formation. It may be that it would be significantly more difficult to combat than natural formation. What’s more, there is a specific pattern to–
[ 2018.01.20 22:00:05 ] Ayallah > /emote clears her throat quietly and adjusts her dress.
[ 2018.01.20 22:00:14 ] Makoto Priano > –Drifter wormhole formation. By all appearances, they form the wormhole in known space, to Drifter Hive systems, which implies there’s local architecture or locus points they’re reliant on.”
[ 2018.01.20 22:00:30 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote raises his hand in light of the new discussion emerging here
[ 2018.01.20 22:00:33 ] Makoto Priano > “This may mean, further, that the technology they employ is different from the Sansha technology in some way.”
[ 2018.01.20 22:00:45 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote With a hand on her chin. clearly thinking about what is being said
[ 2018.01.20 22:00:51 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote glances at her datapad.
[ 2018.01.20 22:01:31 ] Makoto Priano > “So, that’s my napkin note on the matter, but needless to say it’s a non-trivial matter. Yes, it absolutely merits research, but I feel we have several milestones to reach before combatting wormhole formation is a viable strategy. However, it is an–
[ 2018.01.20 22:01:37 ] Makoto Priano > –important strategic objective.”
[ 2018.01.20 22:01:57 ] Makoto Priano > /emote looks to Lasairiona.
[ 2018.01.20 22:02:13 ] Khaprice > /emote glances at Ayallah > If the Society with all their new acess to Jove tech can’t or won’t stop them forming, then we’re very far from being able to.
[ 2018.01.20 22:02:34 ] Ayallah > /emote seems if anything, pleased by the idea.
[ 2018.01.20 22:02:40 ] Nomistrav > /emote lowers his head, as if dissatisfied with the answers given.
[ 2018.01.20 22:03:01 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote raises hand in responds to the answer
[ 2018.01.20 22:03:26 ] Lasairiona Raske > Due to time, we have room for one more question. Mr. Bastrom?
[ 2018.01.20 22:03:34 ] Verzak Bastrom > Thank you.
[ 2018.01.20 22:03:41 ] Verzak Bastrom > YC119 saw a new discovery that, to me, seems quite interesting.I’m talking about the Neural lace BlackGlass implant.
[ 2018.01.20 22:03:51 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote smiles > The reportage was amazing by the way, is there any funny story associated to that discovery?
[ 2018.01.20 22:03:52 ] Che Biko > /emote gets up and heads to the side with an empty glass, and exchanges it for a full one.
[ 2018.01.20 22:04:08 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote continues more seriously> It’s not just a new implant, it is something totally new and technologically different.Will this help us understanding this drifter puzzle?Will this implant give us different answers to the questions we are asking whe…
[ 2018.01.20 22:04:34 ] Verzak Bastrom > -when we hack into drifter systems?
[ 2018.01.20 22:04:39 ] Nomistrav > /emote rubs at his chin as his nostrils flare slightly. Lifting from his seat and burying his hands in his pockets, he quickly makes his way for the exit.
[ 2018.01.20 22:04:43 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote leans forward, quickly taking out her datapad once more.
[ 2018.01.20 22:04:48 ] Uriel Paradisi Anteovnuecci > /emote remotes in to listen in, unable to get too involved currently
[ 2018.01.20 22:05:34 ] Che Biko > /emote remains standing at by the refreshments, and turns to the stage.
[ 2018.01.20 22:06:58 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote is still just listening quietly*
[ 2018.01.20 22:06:58 ] Trii Seo > The Quafe Company has been actually very angry about a lack of biomass in a vegetative state being sent to them to make Quafe Turbo, soooo I guess you’re welcome to go up against Vigilant Tyrannos IC.
[ 2018.01.20 22:07:17 ] Ayallah > /emote wrinkles her nose in disgust.
[ 2018.01.20 22:07:27 ] Trii Seo > But neither me nor ARC assume responsibility if you buy the implant from us.
[ 2018.01.20 22:07:37 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote bursts out laughing
[ 2018.01.20 22:08:13 ] Makoto Priano > Facepalm.
[ 2018.01.20 22:08:20 ] Che Biko > /emote frowns
[ 2018.01.20 22:08:22 ] Trii Seo > …seriously, that shit is mean, makes Maze look like a carnival trick or a teenager’s first firewall configuration.
[ 2018.01.20 22:08:31 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote looks amused.
[ 2018.01.20 22:08:35 ] Ioannis Sepphiros > /emote scratches his head
[ 2018.01.20 22:08:59 ] Andrew Chikatilo > /emote reaches for popcorn
[ 2018.01.20 22:09:15 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote starts packing her datapad back in her handbag and heads to the bar.. with a smile on her lip
[ 2018.01.20 22:09:24 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote glances at Trii, then to Mak.
[ 2018.01.20 22:09:41 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote nods > Thanks for your frank answer
[ 2018.01.20 22:09:47 ] Mizhir > The implant is designed to improve your hacking abilities with the use of known tools against technology that is known to us. The drifter technology is vastly different so the implant may not work as intended when used to hack their frameworks.
[ 2018.01.20 22:11:16 ] Trii Seo > Not to mention after our sixth dummy we’ve learned that yeah, when they talk “Intrusion prevention” they kinda mean it.
[ 2018.01.20 22:11:18 ] Makoto Priano > “It’s worth noting that implant utilization has been on my mind. I do wonder if, for instance, the Ascendency implants were created by the Sisters to assist in spacetime manipulation research, and whether they have any use for us.”
[ 2018.01.20 22:11:35 ] Makoto Priano > “By dummy, she means medical testing clone.”
[ 2018.01.20 22:11:43 ] Makoto Priano > “Anyway.”
[ 2018.01.20 22:11:48 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote swipes a few quick notes.
[ 2018.01.20 22:12:17 ] Trii Seo > /emote looks at Mak, then audience > Not intern.
[ 2018.01.20 22:12:32 ] Verzak Bastrom > /emote smiles > thanks all
[ 2018.01.20 22:12:34 ] Makoto Priano > A pained look.
[ 2018.01.20 22:12:57 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote clears her throat.
[ 2018.01.20 22:13:56 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote steps forward. “That concludes tonight’s lectures. We would like to invite you all back tomorrow at 1830 for the remaining ones and then to join us at the Donor Ball at 2100. Thank you all for coming.” She claps.
