hi hi

If I remember from earlier discussions on the forums, human computer technology is relatively quite advanced, given the otherwise large disparity in technology.

Humans may not have had any reason to develop bleeding edge warships, but we've been making more powerful computers for a long while.

Remember, the Loroi warriors are all female, and there's a general preference for the weak males they can take care of.

I meant message on Alex PDA, but that's true... however i think individual loroi can have preferences and, who know, fetishes. ;)

(Hell, in western Germany, Niederrhein region, there's even a saying that originates from unsollicited advertisements of a sexual nature near battlefields.
"Mach keine Fisimatenten!")

Sidenote - It seems as if the etymology of the term is marching on, though: Wikipedia | Fisimatenten.

Shows that language scientists will take the fun out of everything, eventually. :D

Yeah, I noticed. The German and the English wikipedia pages said different things on the day I posted though...

Visite ma tente just sounds so much like it...
Visite ma tante too.
And seeing how often the Niederrhein region was occupied by French troops, it's still possible.
Maybe the word etymology is elsewhere, but the French occupations increased the word's usage again, before the word got forgotten...
The truth is likely somewhere in the middle.... Or completely elsewhere.

I still like the word, though. Because my Bavarian colleagues don't know it (which may be an indication that the word has become popular through the French occupations, although the Bavarians had their own issues with the French)...

In 2001 when page 8 was first created, there was no such thing as an iPad (or an iPhone), and what we now call a tablet was called a PDA, and the most popular one was by a company called Palm that no one has heard of anymore.[/quote]
I remember the palm damn I feel like a Boomer. Still why does it want to be in a dated device unless it needs some bro time with Alex.[/quote]

Still I think a full-fledged AI would need more processing power than a mobile device which is just designed to display data and be connected to a remote server would offer.

Though, at the "angry walk out" of the AI in http://www.well-of-souls.com/outsider/outsider065.html it said they'll "speak again, soon enough" - it's reasonable to assume that it planned its actions from the very start, and that includes scanning and downloading data from all functional human equipment while still residing on the Tempest.[/quote]

Lovely I wonder what the thing will do with the knowledge of spam mail.

Will probably try to pass off as a Historian prince wanting to secure a refuge for their very large cache of Historian technology

It is entirety possible that what got installed in the pad is just a chat interface and the real historian construct are the one in the "trashcan". I doubt the pad can handle a self aware AI.

Or it's just a mail causing the blinking on the pad.
With or without attachment.

Anyway, I hope Alexander remembers safety protocols for all computer devices: do not open links or attachments from unknown, unsecure, and/or unreliable sources.
And if he does, there's no IT department that can help him within a reasonable time available.
