    today marks the end of scheduled maintenance—two guys with two weeks to kill and a few hundred hours later, we're finally [mostly] done.
    page loads/image downloads should be dramatically faster. until we hit 1gbps, at least. to all of my wonderful and ungrateful users: "you're welcome."
    (note: there are still a few other things i'll be working on so expect intermittent downtime)
    ps: thanks so much to mvb for all of the help and support.

    I wanna go home. Future !GUYX/6jp3w 01/11/09(Sun)15:32:26 No.2731856  
    Well it's been about four weeks since I got back, I spend most of my time either at work, repeating my side of the story for habsec, and making plans with Siane. Harlan and Theia wants us to move in with them so we'll be safer. Oh, and sorry I called you guys liars last time, I checked with the ISP and they said they bumped my session to another date without telling me because this site wouldn't respond on the date/time range I had requested. They wouldn't say anything about the keepalive but I assume it hasn't been interrupted, or I hope so anyway. (You guys know me, right?)

    I don't want to move in with her parents, they're lovely people but they have pretty specific expectations that I don't have any intentions of satisfying, and I'm already unpopular enough around here. I just wanna move back to Earth, but I can't until they get it through their heads that Siane and I don't want kids right away.

    Distract me, pastbros. Your drawings always cheer me up. Or we could talk about computers or whatever. Just get my mind off this shit.

    Nopz, I read all of them I think, I was just curious about your parents, Glad to hear they're alright though.

    I've been wondering about that autolabor. I've read up on the Kiva systems thing and I see that nowadays they make auto-trolies that move goods within a compound or something.

    What are the specific modification that are made to make the auto-labor thing possible. like a product is made on a conveyor belt, rolls off it and the auto-labor distribute it and you can buy things like they come out of the wall. Is that the basic idea?

    I guess? The first autolabor bots do things like tend to crops in plant nurseries/farms/hydroponic facilities, manage warehouse stock, and I know I've seen a few old autolabor combines for field maintinence.

    Anything I get that's not made locally is autolabor produce, and it's just delivered to me some time after I've ordered it. I assume by some combination of roto and cargo PRT depending on which compound it was made at.

    Socialist? You sure? I knew he was a gay atheist. After Obama gets elected the whole "old white religious guy always wins" paradigm kinda goes out the window and I guess the same voter blocs that wanted to see if they could elect a black guy decide to get a woman elected. After Chelsea wins, some gay atheist was the next step and Jim was pretty outspoken on the age of eligibility/gay rights laws in 2015. Right place, right time.


    The market fluctuates a lot between 2009 and the adoption of autolabor, I dunno if any of it was ever identified as a series of crashes, my knowledge of economics is pretty much limited to what I picked up in my formative/cumulative ed classes. But yeah the economic instability is often cited as one of the reasons the CNPA was able to gain traction.

    The government enforces share based ownership of autolabor, and manages the military. I suppose if we'd abolished govenrment or something following the transition to autolabor, the corps might've just asserted ownership of the autolabor compounds and all the robots. There'd be no work for anyone and the wealtheist ten percent would have no need of human labor. I have no idea where things would be today if it had gone just a bit differently.

    I've actually looked into this and I guess the closest thing is similar to "school spirit"? You'll hear jokes that shit on people from kiva hab told in Yum hab and whatnot.

    Just about every nation on Earth is on autolabor. Nobody had much choice. The minute Australia, Alaska and the other early adopters started flooding the global market with cheap, high quality goods, it was either transition to autolabor or spiral into third world conditions overnight. That's how we wound up intervening when China freaked out at Australia and put ships on its coast.

    Hm. Well, Future, I always thought things would be a lot more different.

    For one, I thought that people would eventually move into giant, self-contained cities underground. I guess that's sort of like what habs are from what I can gather, but I thought it would just be a little different. Like, these would house millions of people, and contain massive central facilities for recycling and production. Though, I still thought human labor would be in use by this point, so my idea/design had the city set up in rings corresponding to class and importance. The central core of the city was primarily manufacturing, recycling, and essential services - everything outwards from there decreased in importance.

    Core > Commercial > Upper class habitation > Middle class habitation > Lower class habitation.

    Except for the biggest ring, the outer ring, which would be used for farming.

    Transportation would be mostly tram services/localized teleportation within the city, and then bullet trains which would lead outside city bounds (to mainly other cities).

    The way into the city would be through a fantastic open area in the center, the only non-emergency surface access available.

    That sounds amazing. I guess it's not completely wrong; A few of the older lunar resorts are buried for radiation related purposes. Newer ones are above ground have these EM field emitters on poles that deflect lots of kinds of incoming high energy particles although not all.

    Well figured that with the work that's going on now with teleportation (one molecule, VERY short distances), it would only be a matter of time until some sort of breakthrough would occur. From there, a series of tests with objects increasing in complexity would take place in order to determine if it would be safe for humans, or how they could make it safe.

    From there, investors would take up the idea, or governments would provide grants to scientists to perfect the technology for use in everyday living. And yes, while it would be a very expensive endeavor, it would eventually pay for itself by charging people a fee to use it (it'd be like, say, a bus ticket).

    If I could tell you how it works, I'd be rich by now, and I'd be working in a lab somewhere.

    All I've read about it is that somewhere, scientists were able to teleport a molecule some ridiculously small distance, like .00002 inches or something like that. At a molecular level though, that's a good amount - enough to be newsworthy.

    I think they tried to apply that to teleporting an apple - that didn't turn out so well. From what I've heard, it successfully teleported, but it didn't retain its composition; it became a pile of mush.

    Long way to go.

    Rapid warming effect: Caused by the removal of particulates in the upper atmosphere after the eruption of the Yellowstone volcano. Removing these sun-blocking particulates caused more of the sun's heat to reach the Earth, naturally causing rapid warming. Equator & southern regions got FUBAR'd.

    See, this one strikes me as silly for the same reason as >>2733339 because everything is "right side up". Probably seems natural to you but it makes no sense if you think about it.

    You know how at the turn of the last century authors imagined airships would resemble boats and stuff with gas bags and propellers because the specifics of aircraft engineering hadn't shown them what a proper one would be like so they just extrapolated what they knew?

    Well I can't help but notice how many spaceships in the movies you guys recommend are laid out like rotos or orbiters, horizontally with people facing the "front" and such. It's like in the oldest Star Wars movies, the spaceships moved just like rotos and old airplanes which is probably what they were working off of.

    My implant's locked. Part of the confinement dealie I'm living with while the investigation goes on. There were lots of witnesses to it and I have an alibi although Siane's objectivity may come into question.

    I'm homesick ,but I'd rather return when I'm ready than be exported. I don't even know what Siane thinks, she's going through her own shit right now. She's stopped by a few times to cry at me but then she just falls asleep and leaves. She just won't talk about it.
    >> Future !GUYX/6jp3w 01/11/09(Sun)19:20:12 No.2734466

    Well they found a modded LIPC outside the airlock if that's what you mean. And a body brace. The habsec official assigned to my case says their current thinking is that he was on his way to my place to fuck me up and when I wasn't there, he 'took a walk outside'.

    I guess that explains the stickercams. I put some up in my apartment and Siane's, but eventually when nothing happened she wanted me to take them down, so I did. But when I was peeling the last few off I noticed one of them was a different brand. Which, you know, freaked me out a little bit. The set I put up were all by keyhole, this one was by habfly. I just assumed it was one she had put up ages ago and forgot about. If it wasn't hers, then yeah, uh....probably Clavian's.

It'll be a few months for me though, maybe a year, because I really really need that share. Basically the only way I can redeem myself at this point.

    Scratch that, I forgot one. Silly me.

    From the little bits I've been able to gather, it doesn't sound like you... you know, actually shot him or anything.
    I'm sure I'm drawing the wrong inference, but it almost sounds like they think Siane shot him or shoved him out an airlock or something.

    Gah. Is there a low-level payment you can make on the ETP that makes sure they protect the keepalive stream, without actually having to pay for a full session? A year is a long time, even though it sounds like you're doing a lot better with your money issue.

    It was suicide. That's the line from Habsec, so chances are I'm in no real danger. Not legally anyway but even if I weren't in confinement I wouldn't want to leave my apartment. A few weeks ago nobody here knew me. They might've stared when they spotted the only pink guy in the restaurant or something but nobody knew my name.

    Clavian was a pretty well known guy. Pretty popular. Pretty, in general. I've gotten threats from his exes, his friends, friends of his parents, his professors....I just forward them all to habsec. I miss the anonymity. I feel like everyone in the hab hates me. Everyone on the moon even. I just want to go home, or to be someone else.

    I have this sinking feeling the social stigma around Clavian's death is going to be in Lunarhab forever, and even if habsec officially rules it as suicide, people are still going to look at you like you're a murderer.

    Even if you and Siane get married and move back to Earth, those in the Lunarhab are going to bitch and protest that you're the 'murderer that got away'. And if you don't move back to Earth, you're going to get evil eyed everywhere.

    Lets mess up this investigation.

    So when you killed Clavian, what did you do with his body afterward, sodomize it in any way?

    Burt Rutan, Robert Bussard, Larry Page, Mick Mountz, Marshall Brain, Richard Branson and a few others I can't remember off the top of my head.


    As I read this I realized everything I write here is probably being kept as evidence. I shouldn't be posting at all. Especially not with invalids like this guy fucking around: >>2734803

    I saw the pics you posted right after you killed clavian.

    It was funny how his body landed.

    Can't believe you killed him, things are so different in the future.

    Futurefag, you posted on 4chan well knowing the risks. I have no sympathy for you.

    For what it's worth, if I had the opportunity or need to, I'd be a character witness for you.
    You're a good guy, Alex. Apart from some impulse spending issues, of course, but nobody's perfect.

    If you need to cut the session short because of dicks like >>2734803 and >>2734895, then I'll look forward to the 13th.

    Motive: Clavian was fucking your girlfriend.

    If that were true, it would've been rape.
    I'd like to think that by 2096 we've collectively put aside rape.

    Evidence: The photos he posted a couple of days back.

    You know as well as I and habsec would that ETP posting doesn't work that way.

    He would never be able to post a picture from the future, and even if he did, you would never be able to produce said picture.

    Futurefag, if you were willing to do a copy/paste of the (wikipedia or wikipedia equivelent) page on the current dominant groundbreaking theorys in physics or electronics, including equations, I'd be willing to deposit a small but significant amount of money (and whatever artifacts will be worth something) into a bank account, with explicit instructions that would enable you to access the resulting interest/antiques in your time.

    However, you can't benefit from this, because you're not in the future.

    This proves my idea that even if Christ floated back down from heaven we'd be jumping up to grab his feet to crucify him again.
