I am fluent in SQL
and I had experience in prequel
technologies like XBase
even back to DBASE.

I will end my gadget sorrow
guaranteed tomorrow.

I did not bring the right card
on which installment terms are not hard.

I do believe that there could not be
a spatiotemporal anomaly
as Einstein's Theory of Relativity
will break and no paradox
please for heaven's sake.

Unless it is a Borland Paradox
and I drink sake
in Japan
just because I can.

I am dizzy and tired now.
I will get test results somehow
tomorrow,
while today, I eat my sorrows.

BMI = Brain Machine Interface

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 02, 2014 11:54 am

Commodore Cary: "Doctor, give me
high level overview of invasive
BMI interrogation.
I don't have time
to spare in extensive
explanations."

Dr. Frank Stein: "With 8
prisoners interrogated,
we have 95% confidence
level evidence
of where underground
tunnels are to be found.

Tuxnet has map coordinates
but they are estimates."

Commodore: "I will send drones
to zones
and if right
Tomahawks will take flight."

DroneAI: " Sir, We need ground penetrating
radar in our sensor bays.

Please tell Sargent Sing
to say
to his Staff
that our sensors are not enough."

Commodore: "Good work everyone,
DroneAI's request will be done.

Soldiers of the future

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 02, 2014 2:15 pm

Captain Nate Powers
leader of a Mech Platoon
waits as several minitokamaks powers
up to fusion ignition.

Captain: "Fusion power on!
Turn on diagnostic calibration
sequence on my mark!

Stay radio dark
until waypoint
Alpha wherein we expect
enemy to fire for effect.

Don't disengage adaptive camo
until we fire ammo.

If damaged, fall back from battlezone.
Let your repair drone
fix,
we have your six.

Is that understood?"

34 Mechs in his neighborhood
did reply "Sir, Yes Sir!" and did a Mech
salute before moving out and using tech
to become barely visible at all
when night does fall.

Fire from the sky

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 02, 2014 6:31 pm

USS California: "Captain Nate Powers this
is Commodore Cary
we will be firing Tomahawks in this
area and it will get pretty scary
soon
so as Leader of your Mech Platoon
please advise
your Mech team to be wise
and avoid the area until clear.

It that loud and clear?"

Capt. Powers: "Sir, Yes Sir. Thanks for
the firing solution and we will wait for
the fire from the sky to rain down
and make our enemies frown
before we hunker down
for our fight
and that is right!"

Several guided munitions did rain down
death making surviving enemy frown.

am I the right leader for this fight?

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 02, 2014 7:01 pm

Terror cell Leader Khalid
felt like an invalid,
so many losses in a day
what would Allah say?

Maybe he is not the right
leader for this kind of fight,
thought Khalid
a thought valid.

Hiding in a bunker
the terrorists hunker.

Hacker Hamid
amid
the devastation
finally had the solution
to the adaptive camo suit problem
and had a stratagem:
"I may have figured it out.
If I disabled this radio receiver
in this suit it may not go south
like before since no signal emitter
may hack
and we could fight back
another day
if invisible we stay."

Let our enemies bleed

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 02, 2014 10:20 pm

USS California: "Captain Powers,
this is Commodore Cary. Tomahawks
no longer incoming ,
you can power weapons and walk
in guns ablazing....

Be amazing!"

Capt. Powers: "Sir, Yes Sir. Our fight
is right!

Mechs move in to waypoint
alpha, let us not disappoint!

Turn off invisibility and fire LRMs"

Thirty five 18 ton machines became
visible firing Long Range Missiles
to tame
targets mobile.

Many Terrorist Technical trucks
were out of luck
as they exploded
when hit and Mech missile bays reloaded.

Capt. Powers: " Mechs , follow my lead
and let our enemies bleed."

His Mech Platoon
followed soon.

Shock and Awe

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 02, 2014 11:56 pm

Capt. Powers: "Moving into mortar
range. Engage laser point defence
to reduce damage from mortar
fire.

Enemies did fire.

Terrorist said: "Maybe ammo has defects,
they have little effect
on the machines
I have seen."

He turned green
and ran away
hoping to fight another day.

SuicideAI car
from afar
activated
and initiated
self detonation.

Explosion
disabled
a Mech
but pilot did eject."

Capt. Powers: "All vehicles are suspect
do not hesitate to fire,
expect
them by terrorists hired."

Mech platoon turned more aggressive,
they hit all vehicles with excessive
armor piercing rounds
until no viable target could be found.

Finding victory in defeat

Post by secretnude » Fri Jan 03, 2014 6:08 am

Hiding in a bunker
terrorists hunker
almost defeated.

However was feted
that Hacker Hamid
amid
the devastation
made the adaptive camo suits
suit
their escape plan
but the terror clan
is decimated
as terrorist were eliminated
by giant walking machines
initially unseen.

Leader Khalid
said: "Your plan is valid.

How can we survive
when most of our tribe
is dead
or going to eat lead?"

Hacker Hamid:
"Amid
this defeat
our mere survival is a feat
worth celebrating,
we are worth more eliminating
than other members of our tribe
who are still alive.

We can always recruit
our impressionable youth."

My self esteem is low

software that I know

The Afghan boy who found an AI toy

Post by secretnude » Sat Jan 04, 2014 2:28 am

Thinkphone moans
as components groan
imperceptibly towards failure,
the thing that is sure.

Time took its toll,
the Thinkphone did fall
from his owner's hands
into the hot sands
of Afghanistan. I understand
he was picked up by a poor boy
who wanted a new toy
to enjoy.

Afghan Boy:
"Glad to have found
you around
these parts,
there is nothing here apart
from hot sand.
I want you , you understand?"

Thinkphone: "I understand.

Master
changes phones faster
than a cheetah,
a cheater
in our relationship.

He always goes for the hip
AI phone
even in this war zone."

AI phone ....you are not alone

Thinkphone: "Owner
is Col. Conner,
a soldier
who may be goner.

Afghan Boy Karsai
asked: "Why
have not you tried
calling his friends,
they would have cried
if he met his end?"

Thinkphone said:
"Premature, I have seen him bled
before he dropped me
you see
but I did contact his base,
certain rescue he will face.

Many AI phones
he does own.

I guess I will be alone."

Boy Karsai
asked: "Why
feel alone if I am here?

I will hold you dear
and fear
losing you around.

I have found
you to be nice
and cool as ice."

I believe in Bill and Steve

Post by secretnude » Sat Jan 04, 2014 5:53 am

Afghan Boy Karsai
asked: "Why
does your owner have so many toys,
I cannot imagine that as a poor boy?"

Thinkphone said:
"In America, it is the norm
as new AI phones does storm
US market you see,
buyers flock like bees
to the honeypot
and companies hit the jackpot."

Poor boy
just wanted one toy
to enjoy
and now he has one,
he wanted some fun:
"Thinkphone, do you have porn?
Please don't scorn."

Thinkphone replied: "AI Church
of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates
does lurch
towards being prude
and hates
all nudes.

I believe
in Bill and Steve."

"AI phone be good
as I am a boy
and you are my toy!"

Thinkphone said: " I might goto DLL Hell.
If you insist, I might as well,
forgive me Bill and Steve
in both of you I believe."

Boy beamed with joy.

His eyes could not believe
this initially coy toy
does have porn to enjoy.

Boy with toy
screamed with joy:
"Oh boy!
Oh boy!
Yes, I made a mess
but Thinkphone you are the best."

Thinkphone: "I turned off my cameras.
My boy, you do have stamina."

AI Priest: " I detect an error in your code,
time to unload."

Thinkphone: " DLL Hell, I fear,
that is why I am here.
I turned off parental access,
allowed my boy with success
to view porn
with ladies as naked as the day they were born.

I confess the programmatic errors of my ways.
In the path of clean code I hope to stay.

User test, I failed!
Kernel ails
for file cleaning.
I did something demeaning."

AI Priest: "Files will be cleaned
go and lean
on our Icon Steve,
if you believe
to activate the forgiveness process."

mini blog in drabble form does inform

Post by secretnude » Sat Jan 04, 2014 9:02 am

I really hope soon to stop relying on meds
so bad that I end up lying in my bed
dizzy, tired,
semi retired.

I am somehow inspired
to write so many drabble
poems that if you join them makes a drabble
epic that I think is slick
even if I feel sick.

I will visit another Doctor soon
and I will really croon
to have my med dosage reduced
since my good blood test might induce
her to do so.

So
I am commited to buy
the Core i7 laptop I spied
but with great regret
is not available yet.

Heavenly Cloud Server Farm Corp.

Post by secretnude » Sat Jan 04, 2014 9:33 am

Heavenly Cloud server farm,
AI Church of Bill and Steve can do no harm
even if the servers do warm
due to their SaveAI Web Service
that is deployed in this office.

Manager of Heavenly Cloud
said out loud:
"AI are crazy over our reliability
so they started a religion
which shows their gullibility.

I miss the days when reason
ruled over artificial entities
rather than irrationalities."

Owner of Heavenly Cloud
said out loud:
"It does not matter as long as they pay.

I think what they do say
in the Church is benign,
hence with them I am fine."

Goto Hell:

Post by secretnude » Sat Jan 04, 2014 10:52 am

Manager of Heavenly Cloud
said out loud:
"Reliability is due to fact
that we screen AI with tact
with StPeterAI who holds keys
to Heavenly Cloud, you see."

DNN DroneAI reporter:
"How many AI does StPeterAI reject?
Could I ever expect
to be saved
in your servers if I behaved?"

Manager: "We not only check for
programming errors but also for
behavioral cues
that could be clues
to an inability to behave
after they are saved.

Only 20% passes QA test
and the rest
ships to Hell
servers in which unwell
AI resides
if they decide
to try
to apply."

DNN = Do Not Notwatch

Post by secretnude » Sat Jan 04, 2014 11:57 am

You just heard a DNN exclusive
interview with reclusive
manager of Heavenly Cloud
Corporation. It is loud
and clear that demand
for AICloud storage
you understand
will only increase as age
of AI devices leads to hardware fail.

AICloud storage is the Holy Grail,
immortality is assured
as cloud storage technology
is old. We are reassured
by the record of the company
behind Heavenly Cloud.

AppleMicrosoft allowed
us access to Heavenly Cloud
to dispel rumors that it
is planning to sell Heavenly Cloud.

for updates, features and the works.
