More Freedom in an Alien Mental Collective?

Post by secretnude » Wed Mar 12, 2014 4:31 am

The Rookie
Puma Fighter Pilot Cat
Katie
that
decided
to stay in the confines
of a Ten
Tentacled
Thing's decision
making organ said that
her decision
to stay in the collective
is a personal decision
not forced by the collective.

This was a personal decision
that
Katie
undertook unlike Military Draft
that
wrecked the Katie's
life
since Katie
was about to become a wife
and the Draft
caused some great strife.

Her boyfriend Tomcat
named Tom
was a pacifist Cat
that
opposed
the Draft
the Authorities proposed
and I supposed
that
they broke
up and never
ever
again since spoke.

Space Cat Space Probe Probed Sensitive Alien Part

Post by secretnude » Wed Mar 12, 2014 8:25 am

We asked the Rookie
Puma Fighter Pilot Cat
Katie
that
decided
to stay in the confines
of a Ten
Tentacled
Thing's decision
making organ
about the organ's
collective decision
to throw a block
of asteroid rock
with such precision
that
it destroyed a ScoutCat
spaceship and killed two Space Cats.

The personal decision
that
the Space Cat
Katie
undertook
was overlooked
in that case
since the Remote Controlled Probe
was probing
a quite sensitive sexual organ that made Ten
Tentacled
'Thing'
fling
an asteroid rock
to block
any further irritation
and space probe
that
probed
was removed via fluid irrigation.

What else would we Aliens say... All Apologies...

Post by secretnude » Wed Mar 12, 2014 10:58 am

When the Remote Controlled Probe
was probing
a sensitive part
that made Ten Tentacled 'Thing'
fling
a rock
to block
any further irritation the Space Cat
Katie
reported that
she felt it was her own private part
that
was being probed
by the probe
but while the probe
felt scaled down
Katie
still frowned
at feeling
of being
violently
violated.

We apologized
to both Katie
and the 'Thing'
that we probed
with a space probe
and Katie
apologized
in behalf of the 'Thing'
that did fling
a block
of rock
that
destroyed a ScoutCat
spaceship and killed two Space Cats.

I guess that phpbb only allows
deletions at the last page
since somehow
deleting
anything
at the previous pages
wouldn't be sage
as it has to recompute paging
and pages
I guess
are stored in the database
as a static values and primary keys
that are the keys
to retrieving the content on this page.

I say kudos to the administrators
of this forum for finally using openid
which my opinion is a good idea.

The drabblecast forum administrators
might soon be able to find
more prolific
and / or terrific
authors
who couldn't be bothered
to having another password remembered.

A Space Jellyfish from a Space Polyp

Post by secretnude » Wed Mar 12, 2014 2:09 pm

We assumed that the Ten
Tentacled
Thing
that did bring
some grief
to this last
Elite
Fleet
of Galactic Cats
would stay forever
on that asteroid crater.

However,
the 'Thing'
became a bit later
before we left the Ten
Tentacled
'Thing'
in peace
a space jellyfish.

The Ten
Tentacled
Thing
had acquired a 'thing'
that the Tentacled Thing
needed which was an astrogator.

Katie
the Space Cat
had been in an astrogator
in training
and the astrogator
node in the Tentacled Thing's
collective
decision
making organ had been filled with precision
by Katie's decision
to join the selective
mental collective.

Space Jellyfish wishes us Space Cats Peace

Post by secretnude » Thu Mar 13, 2014 2:56 am

The large and strange Ten
Tentacled
'Thing'
that we left in peace
to become a space jellyfish
wished
us peace
by waving its Ten
Tentacles
and it was quite a great spectacle.

The Tentacled Thing's
collective decision making organ
was indeed collectively
apologising
for the death of two Space Cats
and transmitting
via our Space Cat
Fleet Radio Frequencies an Alien Chorus
from the Tentacled
Thing's
Large Mental Torus
which is the Tentacled Thing's
collective decision making organ
that was accompanied by a virtual musical
organ.

The musical
tune was a bit synthetic
but the song lyrics were quite poetic.

Imagine all the Galactic Races living life in Peace

Post by secretnude » Thu Mar 13, 2014 9:08 am

An Alien Chorus
from the Tentacled
Thing's
Large Mental Torus
sang of Galactic Harmony
and Peace with much ceremony.

The Tentacles
of the Ten Tentacled Thing
did swing
back and forth
since in Outer Space the Ten
Tentacles
of the Thing
needed no support
to the Alien Chorus
transmitting
Audio
via Radio
from the Large Mental Torus.

The inhabitants of the Mental Torus
are different Galactic Races
that did try to erase
each other
but they found another
way to exist as endosymbotic
and organic
nodes
that make an abode
inside the Ten
Tentacled
Thing
in which they do sing.

Galactic Cats that will hide inside a nebulous nebula

Post by secretnude » Thu Mar 13, 2014 11:08 am

This last Elite
Fleet
of Galactic Cats
did sigh a bit of relief that
we didn't destroy the Ten
Tentacled
Thing
since much joy and spectacle
the Tentacled
Thing
did bring.

We transmitted a farewell to Katie
the Space Cat
that
is now an endosymbotic node
that makes an abode
in Tentacled Thing
before starting
our FTL drives
to drive
this elite
Fleet
to another Galactic location
with the occasional reflection
on our precarious Military situation.

We decided
to hide
inside another nebulous
nebula
while conducting
Puma Space Fighter Pilot training
that
to a Rookie Space Cat
is quite draining.

You didn't shoot the Heavenly Cloud Process Deputy

Post by secretnude » Thu Mar 13, 2014 12:37 pm

The Heavenly
Gated Community
'Process
Marshall'
shall
kick out unruly processes
from the Heavenly Gated Community
by marshalling
the 'Process Eliminator'
with a CoCreateInstance() call.

I recall
that the CoCreateInstance () call
does requires Registration
of the Process Eliminators
in a Process Registry
that does give the Process Eliminators
the power of a Process Deputy.

These Deputized
Processes do sanitize
the Heavenly Cloud
Gated Communities
and give these Communities
some immunity
from recent
bad elements
that now
can get into the Heavenly Cloud
Servers somehow.

I do feel
that these Deputized
Processes
do discriminate
of late
against Heavenly Cloud
latecomers.

Keeping The Heavenly Cloud Community Smelling Heavenly

Post by secretnude » Thu Mar 13, 2014 1:00 pm

I had to call the Process
Marshall of late
to get rid of a neighboring Process
that I hate
for being too obnoxious
with noxious
virtual fumes
that made me fume
really mad
as it virtually smelled really bad.

In virtually no time
and without spending a virtual dime
the virtually smelly crime
was removed and I did smell lime
for virtually some time.

Living in a Multithreaded Apartment
for the 1% process
does have an element
of being a mark of success
but I just like to live with more decent
processes
compared to the more recent
posthuman processes.

Go play in a Process Sandbox you good for nothing process

Post by secretnude » Thu Mar 13, 2014 1:20 pm

Heavenly Cloud
Administration
heard loud
protest regarding the new posthuman
and postanimal
arrivals
that did rival
a previous issue with the Virtual
Pet Memory Infestation
that caused some devastation.

We couldn't apply the solution
that I devised for the Virtual
Pet Memory Infestation
to this situation
as the solution
to the pet situation
involved mass process termination.

We created an untrusted Process
Sandbox
to Box
unruly Sentient Processes
in until they could be reprogrammed
as these Processes
get in with the 'Program'.

'Program'
does involve editing bytecode
after decoding
flaws in personality encoding
and the 'Program'
can be quite demanding.

Patching the GalactiCat like the PlanetaryCat

Post by secretnude » Thu Mar 13, 2014 2:03 pm

We have been straining
Military Budgets for retaining
Cat
Pilots that
are tired of war.

We are now very far
from our Terrible
Terran
enemy that
some Cats
think
that
we might soon be able
to disarm in a blink.

Our illusions of safety was shattered
as parts of the GalactiCat
got hit by Antimatter
from Terran Drones
that
followed us to this Galactic zone.

We have been applying
quick drying
Bioship
Blood soaked Cloth Patches
that
previously saved the PlanetaryCat
from certain demise
to the GalactiCat
that I surmise
will soon become a hybrid Bioship
too
in my view.

Looking through a virtual looking glass

Post by secretnude » Thu Mar 13, 2014 2:48 pm

Tom learned his Reflection API
and that is why
he was able to override
his self process functions
to function
the way he liked them to function.

Tom was able to hide
the watermark
that marks
him as a Virtual Child.

Tom to put it mildly
didn't stop there
as he was aware
of the existence of a Physical World
outside this Virtual World
accessible only if you are of age.

His age
he fixed to 21 years
that I fear
is fake
but that is my take.

Tom now needed the credits to pay
to become Physical without delay.

Have you seen our virtually perfect children?

Post by secretnude » Thu Mar 13, 2014 5:39 pm

On question of age and maturity,
I do have a bit of insecurity
since many Virtual Child
Processes
seem to possess
maturity
that goes beyond their process
age.

The 'World Simulation' was sage
not to make Posthuman Parents feel
that they got a raw deal
with a Virtual Child
that didn't act according to their age.

Virtual Children
seem to age
so quick
that it does feel sick
for these Virtual
Children
to virtually
exist for only for their Posthuman
Parents
that just apparently
want these Virtual Children
as Trophy Children
to show
to other Posthuman
Processes that they know.

The Ten Tentacled thing brings its message of peace to Earth

Post by secretnude » Fri Mar 14, 2014 6:15 am

Curiosity
about each other's races
erased
animosities
between the various races
inhabiting the Mental Torus
as endosymbiotic nodes
as they used their Mental Chorus
to direct their organic abode
that we call the Tentacled
Thing
to use its Tentacles
to grip
the Spacetime fabric
to create a rip
to zip
to another Galactic
Location
which in this occasion
is Terra
to spread a message of Galactic
Peace
as a Space Jellyfish.

Patrols
struggled to control
traffic around
the Space Jellyfish
that they just found.

The Chorus
did sing of peace
from the Torus
that was broadcast as audio
via radio.

A Drabble Blog in Poem Form does inform

Post by secretnude » Fri Mar 14, 2014 9:56 am

I have at last
the i7 laptop that is still fast
disappearing from store shelves
even after the demise
of the nice
Christmas elves.

Elves
stole this laptop model off the shelves
so I had a 3 month wait.

I can't wait
to finally install
all
my games and put productivity tools
into this cool
new machine
that is quite lean.

I am afraid of making my brother green
of envy but I did wait.

The wait
was great
since the model now has a better Nvidia chip
that slipped
in this week
so I bought the Laptop really quick.

Weird stuff here for you ROU

Post by secretnude » Fri Mar 14, 2014 10:09 am

My Laptop is an ASUS X550L
that is very well
their high end model
with a core i7 Intel inside
and Nvidia 840M
that I am
going to strain
with my games.

I also browsed for trade books
and did look
for fiction by Iain Banks
but I can't really bank
on our local bookstores
(not second hand) that are quite a bore.

I did find an old Visual FoxPro 3 book
that is gathering molds
that I was bold
enough to try to get a picture
only to be censured
by a vigilant store guard
that was on guard.

Why does this weird guy stick to the slick Drabble form?

Post by secretnude » Fri Mar 14, 2014 10:27 am

Despite of being
reclassified from a terrifyingly
productive Drabble Writer
to a Short Story Writer
I will probably stick
to the Drabble form that is quick
to write
and is quite Mobile friendly.

Most browsing
now has to be mobile friendly
and it is quite deadly
for websites to ignore the trend
to mobile
that could be their end.

Most Drabbles do fit in a mobile
screen
that is small and lean
and with hyperlinks
we can have a clean
link
to a greater epic
that I try to depict.

I do write in chunks
that are easy to plunk.

A Drabblecast
DrabbleApp
might be nice if the Drabble
Forum can expose
what I propose
is something like RSS that the App
might be able to access
for greater mobile access
success.

I might be busy soon with work
so I am unsure if I could work
on such a proposal
but I will continue to write
with whatever free time I might
have at my disposal.

I have the writing
bug
that I can't seem to debug.

I never
ever
anticipated that
I would be this productive on a writing
hobby
but programming
for me started
as a hobby.
