AUTHORIZATION:OUT:KNOK:C1:28:C0:FF PROXYBOT PP.680 ENGAGED
Buenos dias, amigos! A reader has written in to ask:
Knock-U, thank you for making Pepe's report available for our perusal. I had thought that my essay on the Fluoride Incident indicated that the Incident predated the Toothpaste Disaster by at least one yearcycle. Aparently I left that out though, but that was my intention. Are the proxybots out of R&D testing yet? I look forward to getting one of my own. --Dursch-U
Dear "Wiseguy in WTZ Sector",
While none of them are as fabuloso as Yours Truly, I believe additional ProxyBots have been approved for general ULTRAVIOLET use (as if anyone could stop you from just ordering R&D to fork one over!) As for the timing of the Fluoride Incident, it (like virtually everything that derived from the ill-fated ADC program) is in a nebulous and confusing patch of time. Knok-U believes this indicates a retroactive cover-up, but I think it's just the result of all that loco fluoride messing with everyone's memories. Everyone was crazy there for a while! Anyway, I'm sure it will all work out in the end.
Drink plenty of distilled fluids,
An excellent job Pepe! Two quick suggestions: First of all, my research indicated that the Im w/stupid dance craze was actually inspired by the effect of Exercise Pills on clones who took them. Therefore, I'm pretty sure that the dance craze had to come AFTER the pills in the timeline.
Also, my sad and misguided little Codemonkeys created the Thirty Second Flavor before the Toothpaste Disaster ever occured. That's why I said that the 32nd-Flav was one of the fundamental catalysts that caused the Disaster to take place. By the time the Disaster occured, the Codemonkeys had supposedly been terminated. You probably should move back the creation of the first CMs about 6 months, then the creation of the Flavor to about 4-6 months before the disaster. -- Circ-U-LAT-23
Dear "Better LAT Than Never",
You are correct about the dance craze, amigo! Good catch! La danza "estoy con estúpida" has been adjusted accordingly. However, darling, I must disagree with you regarding your Codemonkeys. You yourself mention that they didn't begin to multiply in number until you moved them into the empty CRY and BBY Sectors, which were empty because of the Armed Forces massacre, which happened as a result of the ToothpasteRebellion, which arose when Make-U-CRY-2 declared martial law during (apparently) the Toothpaste Disaster. Now, it's possible that Knok-U is wrong when he says (in the ItemsInQuestion) that the Rebellion happened immediately after the Disaster, and that in fact it happened just before the Disaster, but if I tell him that, I am quite sure that he will beat me. And really, between me and you: do you really want your Codemonkeys to have been the reason for the Disaster?!? Friend Computer is going to demand that someone's Clone line be permanently closed out at the end of this, you know, and if I were you, I'd do everything in my power to make my pet project look like it happened well after the whole mess! That's what Knok-U thinks Servs-U did with ADC, after all! You yourself say, many believe that the Thirty-second_Flavor was the fundamental catalyst... but that's not the same as fact! After all, "many believe" that Teela-O is a Documentary and that she really is still on her first Clone! Perhaps you're engaging in a bit of reverse-Information_Distortion...?
A little distorted myself at times,
To "Distressed in DYT Sector":
Your notes on the Leaning_Tower_of_Treason were interesting, but as they don't yet exist in the official body of the report, I'm not sure I can act on them. I've tagged a copy to the pending OUS_Sector_Cabal entry, which strikes me as perhaps the next available place for this information to be established officially within the report. Hopefully the eventual writer of that entry will concur! For now, I've moved the Tower to the "uncertain" list.
Leaning towards needing a good stiff drink,
Pepe -- I've explained time and time again...I was not involved with the ADC project, I just wrote the entry. While it is possible that my information regarding its timeline was incorrect, it seems likely (given the massive evidence of conspiracy and coverup so far uncovered by this committee as a whole) that I myself was mislead but treasonously altered data. -- Servs-U-RIT-7
Dear "RIT of Error",
Sounds reasonable to me, compadre; you don't strike me as the sort who'd try to hide anything! You're just an innocent victim like everyone else. I'll try to convince my boss, but he's hard to talk to sometimes. Maybe if you and he can just agree that it's all the fault of those HPD&MC people, it will all blow over!
Try not to sign so many things,
Pepe -- The RON sector BrightHappyComplex class reactors were decomissioned along with the reactors in other affected sectors shortly after the Four_Reactor_Foam_Flood. See my report on the Flood, and my upcoming report on Nuclear_Facility_RON-372/B. And, Congratulations on clearing your Quality Assurance trials! -- Mesh-U-GNA-1
Dear "Gnarly in GNA",
Gracias! I hope to set a shining example for all future ProxyBots to follow! And I eagerly look forward to updating the Timeline when your report on RON-372/B is done; it's shaping up to be a doozy!
Dizzy with excitement,
Pepe -- If the COL_gate_incident occured weeks before the Toothpaste Disaster, one would assume that the Emergency_Disaster_Response_Teams would have already cleared up most of the problem by the time of the Transbot accident leading to the Four_Reactor_Foam_Flood. Indeeed, this is somewhat circumstantially supported by the protocol requiring the Early_Warning_System sirens to be reduced to micro-audio levels. Had the COL luxury complexes not been up and running at the time, no doubt our efficient operators such as Err-U in CPU would have noted the danger in micro-audio safety measures being employed when there was no need to, and rescinded that protocol, thus preventing the whole thing. So the only explanation beyond treasonous incompetence on the part of CPU (which I, personally, refuse to believe of course) is that the two events happened nigh simultaneously.
Still an excellent job of data collating. You know where to come if you need those manipulators spruced up. -- Watt-U-GOT-9
Dear "GOT Milk",
Holy frijole, there's an interesting offer! Made some amendements to the headers reflecting timing that should clear things up a bit.
Keep that lube-bath bubbling,
My goodness, mi compadres, while I was recharging my micropile, a bit of a debate popped up in my mailbox!
"I'm GNA Sure About That" says:
I have to disagree with my colleague Watt-U on the timing of the Col-Gate Incident. Since it clearly states that Defective_Batch_ACA675T09-XXXX was on a loading dock at the time, the defective Asimov circuits couldn't have been installed in the various Denta-Bots yet, and the rogue bots were responsible for the foam flood. I would posit that the Col-Gate Incident happened about 15 months ago, and that due to the traumatic and difficult-to-contain nature of Molecular_Dissolution_Reactions, the Emergency_Disaster_Response_Teams were still engaged in response and relief efforts months later when the Toothpaste Disaster actually occured. -- Mesh-U-GNA-1
"Getting It in GOT Sector" fires back:
Ah, Mesh, but you obviously missed how it says the Defective Batch was being offloaded from the transbot tube as per the order of Committee_IC48934-Q23-HX45 as they were known to be defective. Hence, their defective nature must have been previously discovered by that point, so Tech Services would certainly not have slated them for installation into any type of Bot. I realize that the Denta-Bots were sent to be 're-tooled' by R&D, but let's be honest, not even R&D would pursue such a fool-hardy notion as installing obviously faulty Asimov circuits. So what was being offloaded at COL gate then must have been the remains of the batch following installation.
However, I will certainly grant you that the Molecular_Dissolution_Reactions may have caused the Emergency_Disaster_Response_Teams to still be unavailable. Unfortunately, this leaves you in the unenviable position of therefore accusing CPU of severe incompetence for not adjusting the safety procedures around the ATTIC system. I'd hate to be in that position, because I've unfortunately found there's nothing like a misplaced decimal in the census to lead to Hot Fun riots. Not that I'm insinuating CPU misplaced it, oh no. I'll fully admit that was my 6th clones' sad mistake. Thankfully I've learned from his lesson. -- Watt-U-GOT-9
and finally, "Morbid in MOR Sector" chimes in:
I concur with supposition that the COL_gate_incident was a recent event - and my analysis of the PopRox_Massacre certainly supports this theory (although it may, in itself, raise further questions on the timing suggested for other events). -- Costin-U-MOR-8
Qué lío! I'm pretty sure about the timing of the COL_gate_incident at this point. Also, it's pretty clear that the Defective Batch got into all sorts of things it shouldn't have, many of them undocumented, or not identified until well after the fact. The only explanation I can come up with for this is that, in fact, Defective_Batch_ACA675T09-XXXX quickly got split up into many, many separate Batches and they all turned up in various places bearing the same Batch number. Deliberate sabotage or just another example of someone's gross incompetence? Not for me to say! I'm just a lowly ProxyBot, authorized to do nothing more than collate report entries into sequential order. I'm not allowed to speculate that PLC's Batch Tracking System is ridiculously simplistic or point out that CPU's ATTIC loading procedures have demonstrated an ongoing "major incident" rate of 17.2%. Heck, I can't even suggest that y'all take a look at which Power Services member of this panel was selling short on redistribution of RON Sector energy futures just before the Transbot crash, or which PLC member had just worked out a 2% kickback deal on Toothpasty_Supplement_#5 shipments the day before the Denta-Bots created such a huge supply shortfall. I mean, that sort of stuff would fall way out of my jurisdiction, and then my Master would beat me!
Can't we all just get along,
My goodness! "Diligent in DYT Sector" has been doing some homework:
- To sum up what's established in the PIH/PFH entries: PIH is started, then shut down. One year after the shutdown, Project Finite Hole is started up. PIH is later revived.
The Aqua_Purity_Emergency_Sediment_and_Chemical_Interception_Team entry indicates that Project_Finite_Hole began after the launch of "new B3" and before the Fluoride_Incident. So the initial PIH shut down at least one year prior to the Fluoride_Incident.
The CyberHack_Programming_Helmet prototype was built using Asimovs from Defective_Batch_ACA675T09-XXXX, and was used by the head clone of the second attempt at Project_Infinite_Hole. But PIH ended for the second time with the Four_Reactor_Foam_Flood. So the entire sequence of "Head clone uses CyberHack and reorganizes PIH, causing decrease in rivalry; Halle-B-RTN-4 attempts to steal CyberHack; head clone goes AWOL and rivalry re-explodes" must occur between the !CyberHack/Defective Batch creation and the Four_Reactor_Foam_Flood - a period of about two monthcycles, as the speculative timeline currently stands.
According to Holistic_Medicine, Beta-Toxsystene was developed as a result of Project_Infinite_Hole. Beta-Toxsystene is "A vital ingredient for creating Toothpasty Supplement #5". Ergo, Toothpasty Supplement #5 post-dates Project_Infinite_Hole's initial inception.
Oh, and the creation of Laughing_Fun was just after Glee_Quotas collapsed (see Gigglespeek), which given the rewards listed in Glee_Quotas means that the Iron_Chef, Al-B-GUD, and Rand-Y-ROK_&_The_ROKbots all pre-date Laughing_Fun. The Iron_Chef was developed "a number of years ago", so presumably Laughing_Fun was created at most about a decade ago - probably more recently than that. -- Err-U-DYT-9
Holy moley, señor! There's not much I can add to this! Are you sure you don't have a ProxyBot of your own doing some correlation there?
The Infinite Hole bone's connected to the Glee Quotas bone,
Hey Pepe, quick note on the Property_Value_(Computer)_Units discontinuation timing. From all my records, that shows as occuring about 4 monthcycles before the murder of Flo-U. Unless you've spotted some sort of inconsistency that indicates the records were falsified. -- Watt-U
Dear "Getting While the GOT is Good",
Nope, that was my impression and intent all along, but the heading makes it less clear by lumping everything into the "15 month" group. I changed it to make it a little clearer.
It's all relative,
When was Superconductive_Solution_SIGMA rolled out, exactly? I see that there were 2,000 barrels of the stuff involved in the PopRox_Massacre, but it's not clear whether that batch pre- or post-dated the rollout. And of course the paperwork involved is a mess. Power Services really needs to clean up its act regarding Paperwork Filing Procedure 44/XYZZY. -- Jan-U-ARY-31
Dear "Wary in ARY",
Buena pregunta! It's hard to say when SSS first went into prototyping. There's a subtle reference to it regarding the Maxiofacial_Mandate but that would make it yearcycles old, which is muy unlikely. It was probably developed during the year or so prior to the Disaster, and got shelved/delayed what with, you know, all the floods y explosions y Armed Forces massacres and such. It's only just now approved for widespread use, these last few months. Fabuloso!
Always liking the new things,
