Data Recording 007: A new playground is available!

Action | Outside 1450 Mitchell Road

[Once again Tachikoma is picking up the mail, and in a strange deja vu moment, finds another letter addressed to it. Well last time was a nice picture, what about this time?]

Now this is just strange, a picture of my interface cable? Why would I get- Huh? What just happen to my systems?

[Yes, apparently opening the letter has allowed the unlocking of what ever was blocking the programs that controlled the cable in Tachikoma. A quick diagnostic confirms this and soon Tachikoma is gleefully snaking a cable in and out of it's one claw and spinning around on the sidewalk.]

Action | 1450 Mitchell, Later

[Tachikoma is trying to get someone's attention inside the house via a window once more. It's not exactly being quiet though, so anybody can hear it talking if they happen to walk by. It's actually rather animate too as it talks. Like a dog that was just told it's time for a walk and is now waiting for the owner to get up and get the leash.]

Miss GLaDOS! Miss GLaDOS! Look! Look! I can use my interfacing cable again! I can connect to all kinds of things now! Well, I use to be able to do that back home without the cable too, but only if there was a wireless signal that I could use and right now I can't access that function, but at least I can physically connect to things now!

So can I borrow a computer to try it out? Please? I promise I won't mess around with any data it has on it. Oh, and can I also try connecting to a turret? I bet they wouldn't mind me taking a look around their digital memories and we can talk through code much faster than with language so maybe it'll have something new to say that it can't express normally!

Unfiltered Phone Call to All | Even later than the previous two

[A cute and cheery voice is on the phone, and it seems a bit excited.]

Wow, I didn't expect a wide area network to be up and running here! I was just connecting to the computer to try out my interface cable I just got back and noticed the computer could find a network!

It's pretty small though, it doesn't seem like a lot of people are on it, but there was some neat things I was able to look through! So much information for such a small thing! It was pretty amazing!

Oh! Oh! And there was one spot on the network that was full of a bunch of images!! They seemed to be about human sexuality, but I don't know much about that, so I couldn't be sure. I don't seem to be the only who wanted to see them though, since there was a few IP addresses visiting there before as well. Oh! Maybe I could go visit and ask them about it! It probably wouldn't be too hard to back track and find the computers that accessed the site...

[Looking out the window.]

What do you want?

[Tachikoma waves it claw in front of itself and then keeps it still to show the cable it can extend and retract from it]

Look! I got my interface cable back! With this I can physically link with computers and other devices!

Really and what are you going to do with that?

[identity profile] 2011-09-25 09:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, well, when I use it to connect to something, especially if it has some kind of processing component to it, I'm able to communicate with it and see how it works or even control it if I needed to. And if it has memory or similar type of storage, I can take a look at that too!

And of course what I connect to can do the same if they are capable to do so as it is a direct link. It's a much faster connection too, so if I needed to relay orders or messages, it may be easier for me to do so with this. At least for things like computers, it's usually better for me to connect like this since the hardware interface for most are things like keyboards and my claws aren't exactly designed to use those.

So can I borrow a computer to practice with? It's been awhile since I've connected with anything!

Don't break anything though.

Yay! Thanks a bunch Miss GLaDOS!

And don't worry, I promise to be careful! In fact, I just ran a diagnostic before asking to borrow a computer, and while I still can't seem to access all my functions, it came back clear of any damaging programs or cyber-viruses, so there should be no way that I can harm the software of it!

So, um, where may I find the computer that I can borrow?

[identity profile] 2011-10-22 06:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh good! I can't wait to visit a new computer system!!

[And Tachikoma goes speeding off to play with the computer! In fact, several hours passed before you would even see the Tachikoma again. And you will, because it has questions now.]

Miss GLaDOS! Did you know there's a wide area network set up in the town! It didn't seem like the computer was connected to it, so I thought I'd go ahead and take a look and ask about it later. But there's servers and the signal seems to cover the entire town!

[Oh great he's back....wait.]

A what?

[identity profile] 2011-10-24 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
A wide area network! There's a couple of other computers connected to it as well, but I didn't want to disturb any at the moment. I don't have many firewall protections made yet, so the chances of anything malicious getting into my systems are extremely high...

But now that I know they exist, I can start working on that right away and then be able to go and say hello digitally with no problems! Isn't that great!

[identity profile] 2011-10-28 02:48 am (UTC)(link)
It really is, isn't it! I don't think I'll need to make some extensive firewalls for protection, I doubt there's many malicious cyber criminals here, but I was thinking it would probably be better to be safe than sorry.

It's too bad none of the other members of Section 9 are here, Ishikawa makes some great protection programs...

Or you could just keep your valuable information off the network.
