Obsession with Perfection leads to Rejection and Dejection

Post by secretnude » Sat Mar 15, 2014 5:54 am

Posthuman Parents
have apparently
an obsession
with the virtual perfection
of their Virtual Children.

Parental Love of their Virtual Children
could be conditional
and this does lead to virtual emotional
trouble as the virtual
world does try to be realistic
except possibly with cases that deal
with the finality
of suicide and accidental death.

Suicide and accidental death
are ExistenceEndErrorConditions
that are 'Caught' if people 'Try' wittingly
or unwittingly
to end their self process
with any degree of finality.

Cloud Administration
does have a finality
clause
that close
loose 'ends'
in cases that does bend
the definition of the end.

Your Personality Code has a Bad Code Smell!

Post by secretnude » Sat Mar 15, 2014 12:20 pm

Personality Code Reviews
are in my view
tedious
since the Code Reviewers
are studious
and serious
about not letting even minor faults
go unnoticed by default.

I never
ever
have undergone
a Personality Code Review
since I have not yet gone
into the 'Program'
for defective Sentient Programs
that are all now running boxed
in a Sandbox.

Servers in the Heavenly Cloud
now won't allow
Defective Sentient Programs
to run free
due to their troubled history
that you can see
in the Server logs.

Heavenly Cloud blogs
now said that the 1% Process Hogs
can now sleep() like a log.

The Battle Scarred GalactiCat is undergoing repairs

Post by secretnude » Sun Mar 16, 2014 3:59 am

We lost forty eight
great
Space Cats
that
helped this last
Elite
Fleet
of Galactic Cats
flee
really fast
from Terran Drones
that are like fleas.

The flealike
Terran Drones
that we really don't like
bit the Battleship GalactiCat
quite hard such that
the GalactiCat's
air
did bleed
from some areas
that
we Space Cats
need
to inhabit indeed.

We have GalactiCat
Space Cat
repair teams that are quickly
applying
the quick
drying
Bioship
Blood Soaked Fabrics
that will seal the leaks
and keep this Battleship
that
creaks
in use
despite the heavy abuse
of Terran Drones
in many battlezones.

A naked and Battle scarred Galactic Cat Military Force

Post by secretnude » Sun Mar 16, 2014 1:46 pm

Bioship
blood soaked
fabrics that
now cover the holes that
Terran Drones poked
in the Battleship
GalactiCat
were the uniforms of the Cats
that
lives in the GalactiCat.

I guess we Cats
now have a Military Force
that
has nakedness enforced
by circumstances that
we Cats
couldn't have avoided
but at least we avoided
having to abandon our last two Battleships
that are now partial Bioships.

Bioship
skin of the Battleship
PlanetaryCat
that
had time to cure
now feels hard and secure
even with rough patches
since Bioship
skin patches
does self seal
and heal
to deal
with tiny
injuries.

The Big Space Cat Battleship is watching....

Post by secretnude » Sun Mar 16, 2014 2:15 pm

In the Battleship
PlanetaryCat
that
had external
Bioship
eyes that
were mounted as external
sensors
we now felt we needed to censor
some of the video feeds
as some Bioship
eyes indeed
started
unwanted
growth inward
to look towards
the inner
compartments of our Battleship
that
is a partial Bioship.

On the one hand
we understand
that
this definitely increases Battleship
security
but there is some insecurity
since we are all
naked Cats
that
gave up all
our clothing
with some loathing
to save our Battleship
with Bioship
blood soaked cloth
patches
that
patched
the holes in our Battleship
PlanetaryCat.

I don't hate Windows Eight

Post by secretnude » Sun Mar 16, 2014 3:13 pm

I have been busy of late
configuring my Windows Eight
dot One machine
that still gleams
and screams
fast and fresh due to Four
One point Eight
Gigahertz Cores
and Eight
Gigabytes
of Memory
with an Nvidia 840M video chip
with Two Gigabytes
of Memory
on which I played games that might slip
on a lesser video chip.

So wow .. So many Eights!

The four
Processor cores
are One point Eight
Gigahertz and I have Eight
Gigabytes of Memory
with an Nvidia Eight
Forty M to run Windows Eight
dot One that I am starting not to hate
of late.

Some things are still not great with Windows 8.1

Post by secretnude » Sun Mar 16, 2014 3:34 pm

However, the hybrid Windows 8 interface
with both 'Modern' and Desktop
might indeed stop
people who want to face
a pure touch interface
that we already face
with IOS and Android that I think
does stink
less
due to less
legacy applications
and messy transitions
when switching between applications.

The full screen mode of Windows Eight
isn't great
on a big multiple screen
system and only one screen
can be 'Modern'
while the other screens
will scream
Desktop
but that doesn't stop
me from toying
and enjoying
with the 'Live Tiles'
that does have the great
Windows Eight
Modern style.

Post by secretnude » Sun Mar 16, 2014 3:54 pm

The Windows Eight Live Tiles
can be a fertile
and quite futile
obsession
to those of us with the compulsion
to organize
things to look nice.

What is not nice
is that when you optimize
the Windows Eight Tiles
for a larger attached display
to your Laptop
then switch the Tiles
to your smaller Laptop
display
the display
doesn't look as nice
since you can optimize
only for one display size.

I have a bit of an obsessive
compulsive
and I find it repulsive
that my Windows 8.1 Tile display
can only play nice
with one primary display device.

Censoring a Space Jellyfish with a message of peace

Post by secretnude » Mon Mar 17, 2014 4:12 am

The Ten
Tentacled
Thing's
Mental Torus
had an Endosymbiont Chorus
that did sing
on an audio signal of Space Cats
that
are on the run
from Terran
Drones that
are no fun.

Terran
Authorities
tried to jam the Ten
Tentacled
Thing's
audio signal since Terran
Authorities
here
did fear
the impact
on the public of the ground facts
on the continued pursuit of Space Cats
that
don't want to surrender Weapons
of Planetary Mass Destruction.

Reports of Antimatter Weapon
Proliferation
and the resulting devastation
caused by these Space Cats
had the case for extermination
of these Cats
in the Hat.

Re: Secretnude's Drabble Poetry Corner

Post by secretnude » Mon Mar 17, 2014 12:22 pm

There are many things
going
on now
that somehow
I couldn't maintain my previous pace
in writing a space
opera
or a cyberspace
drama.

I had
family
drama
earlier and I hate most
my family
that treated me for years as a ghost
despite of me having a host
of medical issues that isn't my fault
but I still got the silent treatment by default.

I will probably live in my office
soon with people that are nice
unlike the bunch
with whom I do eat dinner and lunch
without eye contact
and hence I can't wait for the contract.

I have to continue to test
my new i7 laptop to the best
of my abilities
with various games
to see if the video chip
isn't lame
and the Nvidia 840M video chip
is really quite hip.

I also recompiled
two .net software project files
that are personal in nature
since I am such a strange
creature.

I apologise to my strange
readers for this strange
slow down and I will be trying to write
a range
of Drabbles soon since writing
keeps me strangely
calm
since writing
is a balm
that tempers my inner storms
like listening to 'Norm'.

Caging an Engaging Space Jellyfish

Post by secretnude » Mon Mar 17, 2014 3:05 pm

Terran
Authorities
now
gave the authority
for Terran
Galactic Patrols to employ a Special
Hyperspatial
Cage
to cage
the engaging
Space Jellyfish
that could engage
its Ten
Tentacles
to rip
the Spacetime
fabric
to zip
to a different location.

In this particular
occasion
this particular
Space Jellyfish
that does wish
for peace
was more than a mere nuisance
since by mere chance
this Space Jellyfish
has an endosymbiont
Space Cat in its Mental Torus
singing with the endosymbiont
Mental Chorus
regarding Terrible
Terran
Drone
strikes against Space Cats
that
are always trying to flee
from Drones
that are like fleas.

A Space Jellyfish trapped in a force field wrap

Post by secretnude » Mon Mar 17, 2014 3:59 pm

Terran Ships in both space
and hyperspace
engaged their force field generators
to generate
the Special
Hyperspatial
Cage
to cage
this engaging
Tentacled
Thing
before much PR disaster the Tentacled
Thing
to Terra
does brings.

The Tentacled
Thing
does sing
of the Terrible
Terran
deeds
to the Last
Elite Fleet
of Galactic Cats
that
are still on the run
from Terran
Drones
that
are no fun.

The Ten
Tentacled Thing's
ten tentacles
tried to grip
the Spacetime fabric
to create a rip
to zip
to another Galactic location
but in this occasion
it was trapped
by a force field wrap.

A sad Space Jellyfish due to a bad Terran Trap

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 18, 2014 2:30 am

In a Terrible
Terran
force field wrap
that was a Terran
trap
the Ten
Tentacled
Thing
now did sing
of sadness
that in the Universe
there exist such badness.

Each song verse
and stanza had
such a sad
lyrical quality
such that there is little in this sad
Universe
that could compare in the song's sad
quality.

The Ten Tentacled Thing
was boarded by Terrible
Terran
Drones via the Ten Tentacled Thing's
Central Opening
that is surrounded by Ten Tentacles
that are quite a spectacle
even when they are in Tentacle
force field shackles
that the Tentacles
tried to tackle.

Space Jellyfish songs of Freedom

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 18, 2014 6:07 am

The Tentacles
of the Ten
Tentacled
Thing
were trapped
in a Terrible
Terran
Force Field Wrap
but Ten Tentacled Thing
still did sing
its songs of freedom via audio
transmitted via radio.

While the Tentacles
of the Ten Tentacled
Thing
are in Terran force field manacles
the Tentacled Thing's
Mental Torus
that has endosymbiotic sentients that act as the Thing's
Mental Chorus
defended the Torus
from Terrible
Invading
Terran
Drones
entering
the Mental Torus
Security
Kill Zone
with a range
of strange
biological entities
that grant the Mental
Torus
immunity
from those that want to disrupt this harmonious
Mental
Community.

100 Sentient Beings in the Tentacled Thing

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 18, 2014 10:10 am

Amoeba like things
inside the Ten Tentacled Thing
engulfed Terran Drones
in the Mental Torus Kill Zone
to protect the endosymbiont sentients
that are more than content
to stay as part of Tentacled Thing's
Mental Chorus
inside the Tentacled Thing's
Mental Torus.

Being
a Sentient Being
in the Torus
means living a harmonious
Collective Mental Life
that is like having a good husband or wife
times one hundred
since there are a hundred
sentient endosymbiotic things
inside the Tentacled Thing.

A harmonious
way of living
does lead to a tendency for singing
for the Sentient Beings
in the Tentacled Thing.

A Ten Tentacled Thing escaping

Post by secretnude » Wed Mar 19, 2014 9:45 am

The Ten
Tentacled
Thing
did something
to break free
of the
Terrible
Terran
force field manacles
on each of its Tentacles
and it was quite a spectacle.

Tentacles
retracted
by contracting
into the body then immediately grew back
to hack
the spacetime fabric.

Tentacles
of The Ten
Tentacled
Thing
started gripping
then ripping
the spacetime fabric
really quick
to make
an escape
for its sake.

Terran Authorities
did take
the escape
of the Tentacled Thing
that brings
a message of peace
as a Space Jellyfish
a bit hard
since the Authorities
thought that the Thing's
escape
wasn't in the cards.

been busy ... but I promise to write more

Post by secretnude » Wed Mar 19, 2014 10:32 am

Writing for me this much
had been a such
consuming hobby
but this hobby
is nevertheless
one of the best
ones I ever had
and I am glad
for the number of reads
on this thread indeed.

I have installed VirtualBox
on my Win 8.1 Box
to run different flavours
of Unix that I savour.

I have an Ubuntu VM allocated for eBanking
since I am not banking
on the security of Windows.

My new Laptop with Windows 8.1
has already undergone
a batch
of patches
that seems to match
my experience
with previous Win OSes by chance.

A Virtual Birthday Cake is by definition a Fake

Post by secretnude » Thu Mar 20, 2014 6:55 am

Virtual
Child Tom
went virtually
mad
recalling so many virtually
sad
Birthdays
with Fake
Virtual
Birthday
Cakes.

Tom's
Posthuman Parents
apparently
just wanted the ceremony
of a Birthday
Party
celebrated with economy.

Tom's
Posthuman Parents
are virtually rich
but they are more bewitched
by the shiny
than the once tiny
Tom
that never
got along with Tom's
Virtual Mom.

Tom
never
got the Virtual Presents
he liked
since Tom's
Parents
didn't like
spending
on Gifts but Tom's
Parents
apparently
loved appending
more assets
into their Asset
Collection
has a selection
of items for show
to other Posthumans that they know.

I now

So you see
I can get

I am not expecting

seems less of a hack
