The (Unregulated) Update

Oct Core Bombarded by Flux

Oct Core was attacked by Conflux on 7.5 with the station sustaining some minor damage.  Apparently the Conflux attacked outbuildings first, but there has been not official report on any damage there.  They also attacked the station and were trying to do something at the ETP.  This was the largest station attack we have seen in quite some time.  You have to wonder if this was random or if Flux aggression will be ramping up.

Chatty AI

For the first time in a very long time we’ve been hearing from the Amananth Station AI (aka DPDQ).  First in relation to repairing the production for the “inhibitor” (aka antiflux); and later when it apparently scolded RazorsKiss for having someone blow up an old New Dawn area in the station.  The messages were transmitted in hex — which just seems lazy to me.

Amananth Mission Completed. DPDQ Breaks Silence.

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  Shortly after the completion of the recent Amananth mission (simply described as “Supplies are needed …”) UUNN received this brief dataset from DPDQ, the AI controller of Amananth Station:

57652061 7474656d 70742074 6f20636f 64652066 69782070 726f6475 6374696f 6e20666f 72207468 6520696e 68696269 746f722e 20205375 63636573 7320756e 63657274 61696e2e 20205465 73747320 77696c6c 20626567 696e206f 6e636520 72657061 69727320 616c6c20 746f2074 68652066 6163696c 69747920 61726520 636f6d70 6c657465 2e

It translates as …

we attempt to code fix production for the inhibitor. success uncertain. can tests begin once repairs all pilots to facility are complete.

It seems apparent that this, and the recent mission, relate to an attempt to re-start Antiflux production.


Engineers at Amananth Give Report

by Thane Carios

(Amananth) The multi-corporate engineering team that has been at work on the problem of repairing the Antiflux Custom Producer in Amananth for more than two weeks, has released a much-anticipated update on their effort.

“Initially we focused on the data architectures because that’s what DPDQ (the Amananth uunn-bg.jpgAI system) had been doing – trying to correct the CPs own diagnostics system.  If we could have repaired that, the CPs nanos could have completed the repairs with the aid of directed repair beams,” said Chaiss Rivers, one of the team members from Lexxor Intelligence.  “Unfortunately, we were unable to make any progress on that front.  So we decided to look directly at the repair system hardware.  So far, we have been unable get it activated at all – can’t even communicate with it.

“The biggest problem,” continued Rivers, “is that this was a very well-executed sabotage.  The explosions on Amananth station apparently destroyed all of the backup data on the Antiflux systems and hardware, and DPDQ does not seem willing or able to reproduce it.  But we haven’t given up yet”
