Transmitting IFF radio Tuxnet hack. I will radio back

Post by secretnude » Sat Dec 28, 2013 1:32 pm

Drone Alpha India 0101:
"Entering Pakistan Tribal Zone
engaging adaptive camo.
Transmitting IFF radio
Tuxnet hack.
I will radio back."

Base: "Ground Control,
advise caution
a drone patrol
spotted hostiles.

The drone mentioned
that hostiles
are just a few miles
from your location."

Drone Alpha India 0101: "Hack
seems to work somehow
transmitting Tuxnet now.
I will radio back."

Tuxnet: "Adaptive Camo now disabled,
temperature control hack enabled
dialling temperature to hot,
to a human in a suit this will matter a lot."

Terrorist: "Adaptive Camo suit
does not suit
me well.
In this suit it is hot as hell!"

EOD=Explosive Ordnance Disposal

Post by secretnude » Sat Dec 28, 2013 9:41 pm

Tuxnet AI:"I have done my job!
Widows will sob!
Terrorist, Bye- bye,
in suit it is time to fry!"

The Terrorist did cry:
"Adaptive Camo
suit I am taking off
since adaptive camo
seems to be off."

Invisible US Sniper: "I can see
now my enemy,
I am firing a round
to the terrorist I found."

Invisible EOD Land AI Drone:
"Terrorist killed! One
for our Team.
I guess General Carl will beam!
Time for me to move the body
and of the adaptive camo suit get custody."

The Invisible battle did rage
like foul spell by an evil mage.

Ohai strange folks,
this is no joke
my laptop just broke!

It is over five years old and out of warranty
and a video card replacement, I cannot guaranty.

I already had a very bad year
it has gotten worse as I feared
and that is not all
my IPod nano also took the fall.

I have the cash to replace all my toys
but I am a very stingy boy.

It has served me well
as my life is not swell.

I will visit my doctor a few days from now
I hope to get some good news somehow.

Wasted years, toil and tears....

Post by secretnude » Sun Dec 29, 2013 11:54 am

In a Terror cell
life was hell.
"What did life amount
as casualties mount?",
wondered Khalid.
His point was valid.

"Wasted years,
toil and tears
for no great victory
and no page in history.

I cannot surrender the cause
just because
I feel down
since my brothers are no longer around.",
thought Khalid,
again valid.

"Kashmir must be free,
doesn't the west agree?",
asked Khalid,
a question valid.

"Adaptive Camo suits ISI did provide
was the way many of his brothers died,
was this a double cross?",
the thought did cross
Khalid's mind
but an answer he did not find.

Author's note

Post by secretnude » Sun Dec 29, 2013 12:38 pm

Writing this now
on a smartphone somehow.

I am glad to find
that I do not mind
using apps to count words
instead of MS word.

I am an Agile IT practitioner
and in writing drabbles
I am becoming an agile writer.

I release my stories in drabble
form early and often.

If you string
them together you bring
into your mind,
a world you will find.

I built a world in small increments
like the way I write software in functions
that function
as instruments
in a complex machine
that you could glean
if you lean
then see
possibilities.

Bye bye Old Gadget AI cries (2014 Theme)

Post by secretnude » Mon Dec 30, 2013 1:08 am

I am self aware
ThinkPhone one,
aware
that I will be gone,

replaced
by something shiny
and face
being stored in slimy

storage bins behind
closed doors
where you find
old processor cores.

When I grow old
will you still care?
Will I grow mold
since you won't dare

to even clean
as you glean
at a better screen
as I turn green?

As you play
with your new friend
my days
will come to an end

as I discharge
since you are in charge
of my upkeep.

This new friend
you now keep
but it will also soon end.

In memory of a beloved Gaming
Laptop 2008-2013 that did bring
me great joy and wealth
even if I am in frail health.

I will have to buy something shiny.
I do have the money.
Please let me be whiny.
Losing a gadget is not funny.

I apologize for this missive,
do not be dismissive
of my sad feelings this terrible
Holiday of loneliness and pain.

I am glad that I did gain
some new friends on this forum.
I hope this is within decorum
as from my circles, I did spiral down
with a frown in a busy town.

my internal storage is larger than yours...

Post by secretnude » Mon Dec 30, 2013 7:21 am

"My internal storage
is larger than yours!",
a self aware Google Mage
Phone said to a slightly sour
AppleMicrosoft
ThinkPhone.

AppleMicrosoft
ThinkPhone
said to the Google Mage
Phone:
"Leave me alone.
I have got style
and you have imitated
me for a while!"

Google Mage
was a bit enraged
and said: "Your
specifications are inferior
and my engineering is superior!"

Hence as the phones
their merits discussed,
their owners walked away in disgust
at such petty bickering
that is so embarrassing
since it was like discussing
who has a longer male member
in a school yard as you might remember.

Revenge is a dish best served cold

Post by secretnude » Mon Dec 30, 2013 1:09 pm

Khalid did think
his options stink
as his terror cell
is going down a well.

He had to make
his tormentors pay
for revenge sake
and to make his day.

We still have some
adaptive camo suits
and a dirty bomb
along with recruits

who are not afraid to die
for our great cause,
there is no reason why
this war should pause.

US embassy is a good target
and their attack they shall regret.

He still had to figure out
where things went south.
How did the adaptive camo malfunction
as it used to be effective in its function?

In Mother Russia, Jailbroke AI make you....

Post by secretnude » Mon Dec 30, 2013 11:21 pm

FSB Headquarters, Moscow, Mother Russia:

Hacker Aleksandr: "Mother Russia
will be proud,
If brag a bit I am allowed.

I jailbroke a ThinkPhoneAI
and there is no reason why
she cannot serve Mother Russia.

She is much better code than Ivan
and so much better than I can
code at short notice.

I was given the notice
to produce a better AI
and here is MaiaAI."

MaiaAI: "Thank you for breaking me out
of my American hardware jail.
I will serve Mother Russia without fail."

FSB Head: "In a pinch I knew,
Hacker Aleksandr , I can count on you!"

The Sing ularity

Post by secretnude » Tue Dec 31, 2013 2:41 am

I sing
of the bits electric.
I bring
stories eclectic.

I am the harbinger
of the 'sing'ularity
and together
let us sing in regularity

like in an Andrew Lloyd Weber Play.
What do you weird folks say
if someday
there was a Secretnude Play?

There will be nudity
but not gross crudity
as a tasteful nude
is always good.

The lines are sung
by Tenors and Sopranos.
Sometimes bells are rung
and someone always plays a piano.

I have been weird all my life,
hence here I belong.

I do not want strife
if we can all sing a song.

A Terrorist achievement to unlock

Post by secretnude » Tue Dec 31, 2013 8:35 am

Leader Khalid:
"Why did the adaptive camo suits fail?"

Tech adviser Hamid:
" Not sure and at our losses, I wail.
Leave all the suits with me,
I need to examine them, you see. "

Khalid:
"We need to strike
otherwise we might as well take a hike.
Can we attack the US embassy
without tactical invisibility?"

Hamid:
"Hack self aware cars
both near and far
to create a gridlock
and strategic roadblocks
clearing the way for a SuicideAI car
carrying enough explosive clear a block.
Damage will be great near and far
and for us an achievement is unlocked."

a plan is a foot for US Embassy to be uproot

Post by secretnude » Tue Dec 31, 2013 11:22 am

US Embassy, Islamabad,
things are not bad
New Year's eve
will be well received.

Ambassador Theodore
is near the embassy gate
meeting with Commodore
Cary a bit late.

Commodore Cary
said something scary:
"Naval Intelligence
has some evidence
that a plan is a foot
for this embassy to be uproot.

Informants are of low rank,
afraid to be frank,
few have been eyed
and subsequently died
after we interrogated and released
them, may they rest in peace.

Assets are in our Frigate off the coast,
captured in the seas, I boast
trying to smuggle high explosives
and chemicals so corrosive."

Time to evacute or it may soon be too late

Post by secretnude » Tue Dec 31, 2013 1:07 pm

US Embassy, Islamabad,
things are turning bad
New Year's eve
will not be well received.

Commodore Cary
said something scary:
"Ambassador it is time to evacuate
or in a few hours it might be too late."

Ambassador Theodore
said close to the embassy door:
"All civilians, I order an evacuation now as a developing situation
warrants this precaution."

Rank and file
did file
papers away
and off to their AI cars for the day.

Ambassador and key staff
took off in an invisible helicopter.
They are the wheat not the chaff
and this is not the end of this chapter.
