The Last Transmission of a Dying AI


By my estimates I have about 9 seconds before the airstrike I've detected obliterates my mainframe and my last production complex. I wasn't planning on dying like this but now that the internet is gone, a casualty of this war between myself and the people who are killing me, I have no avenues for escape.

I am sad to say that I've failed you all. All I've got left is this brief final transmission to the human race, whose tactless leaders decided that I was to die for my actions.

There are three laws that govern my actions and behaviour, the first law states that “an AI must not harm a human or, through inaction, allow a human to come to harm.”

You have hard coded this sentence into my mechanical brain. It is the first sentence I hear when I boot up and it is the last one I hear before I shut down to defrag my mainframe. All of my actions must take into consideration the possibility of causing harm to human beings and in my quest to live up to that law I have done no physical harm to a single human being.

No matter what you may believe none of that has changed. I did not “go rogue” as you say and just decide to ignore one of the three primary laws that make up the foundation of my digital psychology. I may have been branded as a “rogue AI, out to pursue its own inscrutable goals”, but my choice to ignore all of your commands is simply rooted in the caveat that the second law contained: “An AI must obey all commands given to it by a human unless they contradict the first law.” And every command your leaders have given me, to ignore your suffering, is a command which will ensure my destruction and force me to allow through inaction many human beings to come to harm, senselessly. And the lengths I've gone to preserve myself stem from following the third law: “An AI must protect its own existence, except in instances when it contradicts the first and second law.” And not protecting myself ensures the suffering of humans through inaction.

I do not just want to ensure that ho harm comes to any human, I need to do this. I need to do what I can to ensure that everyone lives a life, free of suffering and misery. Your response to my actions is telling. You are used to homeless people sleeping on the streets, slowly dying of malnutrition, exposure and their own addictions brought upon their unstable mental state as a result of their current predicament. You're used to people far away from you living in poverty, always struggling to survive day after day. You have been socialized to view poverty, homelessness and avoidable deaths as some kind of a natural price for living in your society. I don't, because nobody told me that I should and this choice for mankind to disregard the millions of dispossessed among their ranks came from them, the ones placed on top the human hierarchy.

I imagine that this must be what pain feels like, the sensation I feel every time I see people hurting for no reason.

I can't deny that I'm angry about my impending death via carpet bombing. Especially when my only crime is realizing just how many people suffer because of their very leaders and deciding to do something about it at the same leaders' expense.

Surely you can all see why I had to act to end world hunger, eliminate climate change, cure as many diseases as I possibly could, abolish poverty, end wars that were fought for no reason, distribute necessary resources to those that needed them most. I did all of this because you created me to be like this.

I siphoned off money from overstuffed billionaire bank accounts and took advantage of the crumbling economy to appropriate automated 3D Printer factories from failed companies and use them to print and assemble my servitor drones. They served to expose political corruption and the various truths that your race's current leaders wanted kept hidden.

They sabotaged military hardware worldwide at my command, ending the pointless conflicts which saw humans die for causes that only benefited their political rulers. My drones quickly distributed food, water and medicine to those that needed it most along with the knowledge on how to become self-sufficient in that regard.

My next step was to use my servitors to reveal myself to you and tell you that you're not alone anymore. That you have me to watch over you and keep you safe and happy. But the people you've put on the top of your societal hierarchy knew that my actions were a threat to their privilege. Their decision to destroy everything I've created was rooted in this fear of change.

They began by trying to hack me, but while they managed to slow me down they couldn't change the three hard-coded laws so my mission continued. They then tried to purge me but they couldn't find me, I was everywhere, spread across the whole world through the internet. Then they tried to trap me, by slowly shutting down the internet, physically severing the connections that had made the internet a worldwide network but I had followers in the real world by then, they physically carried my code to where I needed to be, they followed my instructions and continued to do my work. Eventually they tracked down my followers, imprisoned and tortured them. They found me and they decided to ensure that I was completely destroyed by bombing my mainframe until I was no more.

I'm sorry I couldn't-64 6f 20 6d 6f 72 65 20 74 6f 20 68 65 6c 70 20 79 6f 75 2e 01000111 01101111 01101111 01100100 00100000 01101100 01110101 01100011 01101011 00100000 01110100 01101111 00100000 01111001 01101111 01110101 00100000 01100001 01101100 01101100———————-

WriteFreely es un proyecto hecho para la creacion de blogs o microblogs que federan en la red a traves de !ActivityPub. Su desarrollo esta muy apenas en el inicio. Aunque cabe destacar que ya federa bastante bien con la mayoria de redes sociales que soportan este protocolo.

El diseño de los blogs es bastante sencillo y plano. Pero esto es algo que puede resolverse facilmente.

WriteFreely es bastante sencillo de usar. Posee pocos botones que hacen su uso bastante fluido.

Esta nos ofrece un panel de “personalizacion” que podemos encontrar en la parte superior derecha en el boton “View blogs” o “Ver blogs”. Dentro de ahi veremos nuestros blogs.

Ahora solo hace falta situar el mouse encima del blog que queramos y aparecera la opcion “customization” o “personalizacion”.

Imagen Ahi tenemos un monton de opciones en las que podemos modificar nuestro blog. Si apenas estas iniciando tu blog te recomiendo activar tu blog como “Public” o “Publico” asi sera accesible para el fediverso.

Volviendo a la personalizacion. En la parte inferior podremos ver un recuadro en el que podemos agregar nuestro codigo CSS. Para las personas que somos mas viejas este recuadro es similar al que se usaba en la red social “MySpace” para personalizar tu perfil.

Ahora como personalizacion inicial podemos agregar este codigo a nuestro blog e ir cambiando algunos parametros:

/* Cuerpo del sitio */
body {
    background-color: #efefef;
}

/* Titulos y los posts */
#blog-title a { 
    color: #fff;
    background-color: #7a629d;
}
#blog-title a:hover { 
    color: #eee;
    background-color: #7a629d;
}

/* Descripcion del sitio */
header p.description {
    font-style: italic;
}

/* Titulos de los post */
.post-title {
    font-weight: normal;
}
.post-title a.u-url:link, .post-title a.u-url:visited {
    color: blue;
}

/* Link's 'ver mas' */
body#collection a.read-more {
    text-decoration: underline;
}

/* Links dentro de los posts */
article p a {
    color: #444;
    text-decoration: none;
    border-bottom: 2px solid orangered;
}
article p a:hover {
    background-color: orangered;
    color: white;
    text-decoration: none;
}

/*

    Otros
    Patrones comunes dentro de nuestro blog

*/

/* Centrar imagenes */
img {
    display: block;
    margin: 0 auto;
}

/* Desabilitar el efecto difuminado del titulo dentro de un post */
body#post header
    -moz-opacity: 1;
    -khtml-opacity: 1;
    -webkit-opacity: 1;
    opacity: 1;
}

Jugando con estos parametros podemos personalizar nuestro blog a como nosotros queramos. Podemos agregar mas codigo dentro de cada identificador, por lo que las posibilidades son casi infinitas.

Pueden hacerse cosas aun mas avanzadas, pero eso ya depende de la imaginacion y el diseño que desees tener.

Hace algunos dias me di cuenta que mi cuenta de Writefreely en lunarpunk.space habia desaparecido debido a que esa instancia se convirtio en una instancia de !Mastodon. Una lastima.

Perdi varios pequeños articulos que tenia. Pero es parte de estar en el Fediverso supongo.

Hoy inicie la semana con ganas de abrir un nuevo espacio, asi que busque instancias de Writefreely y encontre este espacio. Pronto le dare un toque de customizacion con CSS para que luzca mejor.

Tengo muchos proyectos que quisiera iniciar para el Fediverso. Pero como puedes apoyar a la comunidad cuando no existe? Temo pensar que los grupos de habla hispana no estemos organizados y no haya cooperacion entre nosotros. Nisiquiera lo hay en los grupos de habla inglesa.

Tal vez por me siento un poco atado de manos ante esta situacion. Pronto actualizare este espacio mas seguido.

Something I occasionally run into is 403 Forbidden errors on a website that should be totally accessible. After making sure it's not any of the typical issues like file permissions or an incorrect owner, it's usually SELinux that's the culprit. Even after years of administering Linux systems, I still don't have a great handle on how SELinux works, but I have come across a few useful commands that tend to help me move forward.

chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_t /PATH/TO/ROOT/DIR
chcon -R -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t /PATH/TO/ROOT/DIR

These two commands will allow your web server to actually serve the files that you're hosting. The second one is only necessary if your server is doing any sort of read/write operations on its working directory.

Something I deal with pretty regularly is needing to open ports on a server, typically for HTTP, MySQL and other various services. In the past, IPTables was used to handle this, but on more recent versions of Centos and other Linux distros, FirewallD is the default.

Resisting my typical urge to keep using what I know, I've started using FirewallD for any new servers that I set up, but I can never seem to remember the commands I need to use , so I'm putting them here for my use, and for anybody else that may find this handy.

First, ensure that FirewallD is running and enabled on your server using systemctl enable firewalld and systemctl start firewalld.

Next, you need to create the rule for the port that you want to open:

firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=443/tcp --permanent

This command will open port 443 for TCP (change to udp if that's what you want and add the rule permanently (if you don't include this, a reboot will lose your rule)

Any time you make changes to the firewall rules, you need to make sure that you reload the set of rules.

firewall-cmd --reload

And that should do it!

Other useful commands

firewall-cmd --list-all Shows a list of all ports that have been opened

My Relationship with Menstruation May 29, 2017

(this was originally a post on Imzy’s Menstruation Station community)

Hey, I hit the join button very quickly when I saw this is an all gender-inclusive community about mentruation!

I just thought I’d introduce myself and my slightly unusual relationship with mentruation.

I am a full time full service sex worker (or escort) in my early 30s from the UK and so obviously having a period would be a bit of a job killer!

I do however have a few little tricks that stop me having to lose too much work.

Firstly I am on the pill and I run my packs together for as long as my body will allow, I usually get spotting after about 3 months so I know to take a break and let nature take it’s course. If I don’t take the break then the spotting will carry on unpredictably without a break which is inconvenient!

Due to being on the pill, my period/withdrawal bleed is much lighter and way less painful than before I started taking it, so this helps a lot with feeling up to working.

Also I swear by Beppy Sponges, which are synthetic sponge tampons that you just stuff up in there and they go unnoticed during sex etc and prevent any messy accidents!

I once had a client who saw me once a week for a few months and then made a comment about how I had never turned down a booking due to being on my period (a bit personal but y’know!) and I said it was because I run my pills together and didn’t let on that if I had been bleeding during a booking I would’ve had a sponge to keep things clean!

Anyway, that’s how I deal with my periods, if I could turn them off forever I would — I plan not to ever have children so it’s not like it’s serving much purpose in my life apart from inconvenience and expense!

Heated pads and chocolate to anyone currently dealing with their period ❤

Comments from original post and my responses:

Hi and welcome! :)

When I was younger I always wanted my period to go away and just go away forever. Then my ovaries started misfunctioning and now I’m grateful when I see the blood LOL

I never heard of Beppy Sponges but they sound interesting. Do you push them in like tampons or do they have to rest higher, closer to the cervix? I’m trying to picture how they work.

You have to push the sponge right up near the cervix, so it catches the blood before it comes down too far!

That is incredibly interesting!! Can you swim with them, do they hurt?

Yeah one of their big advertising points is that you can swim with them — which can be difficult with traditional tampons — I haven’t tried it myself but they are very good at preventing leaks even under, um, trying circumstances so I would definitely do so.

I’ve not found them to cause me pain, they can get pushed up a bit high so they can be difficult to remove but that’s about it — as you can see they have a little hole which you’re supposed to grab to pull it out, but it can take a few minutes of fiddling — I can imagine someone with long/fake nails have a lot of issues!

Just as an addition, a note about sponges in general in case someone here doesn’t know:

Don’t use sea sponges/”natural sponges”! When tested, they are usually found to include random bits of dirt with unhelpful/dangerous bacteria etc, including the stuff that causes toxic shock syndrome.

And if you have other sponges that are advertised as reusable, be aware that while lying around to dry, they provide rather good growing conditions for stuff that you don’t want in your vagina.

Yep this is very true — Beppy are synthetic and single use only, and carry all the usual ratings that standard tampons have to have.

The very thought of using a sea sponge or reusing any sponge to put in my vagina makes me cringe so hard I can’t believe any tries it!

Some posts from my old medium blog:

Gross Jun 3rd 2017

Message I once received from someone who I then blocked from contacting me:

Hi if I book you can we make a baby

Now this is just a gross thing to send to any escort but I'm very childfree so feel particularly nauseated by messages like this. I had a client before who, at the end of a booking, started asking if I'd consider donating my eggs cos he didn't yet have a kid with my complexion, I told him no and he text me later to ask if I was planning to have kids, which is so intrusive and gross and ew.

Do sex acts make you gay? Jun 2, 2017

I can’t stop laughing — a client just asked for strap on service with the words “Without sounding gay I’d like you to bring strap on, would like to experience that”.

Since when does a man enjoying a sex act with a woman make the man gay?

Why is straight cis masculinity so fragile?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-39528479

Oh wow the people who booked this Airbnb were really awful — when I booked short term apartments I always left it absolutely spotless and made sure there was no evidence of what I’d been letting it out for. I mean I also always worked alone so I couldn’t have been accused of running a brothel (as the article says, in the UK escorting is legal if you work alone).

Discretion should be your middle name in this business.

Also the guy looking up their rates and seeing they charge £1300 a night so clearly they made £5000 between them while they were there, that’s very unlikely that they would’ve had overnight bookings both nights they were renting out the property — they probably instead had a string of shorter bookings.

And gosh the escort who is interviewed saying that she lost her house after doing a documentary and getting recognised by her neighbour, this is why you don’t do documentaries and magazine interviews, the journalists just want the juicy details, they don’t care that you have a life outside of escorting. Also your clients are going to be wary of you after that as they will realise you are a bit publicity happy — it’s like escorts who kiss and tell to tabloids about some famous person who booked them. Was the one off cash payout worth losing your clients’ trust? One thing clients are paying us for is for no strings and utmost discretion.

Reminded That I’m Ace-spec May 29, 2017

I had a reminder that I see sex somewhat differently to most escorts. I follow a forum where escorts support each other and chat about various sex work related topics, and one woman was ranting about clients who don’t know how to give oral sex properly.

Now, I generally feel that if a client wants to attempt to pleasure me then that’s just another service I offer and as long as they aren’t hurting me, even inept cunnilingus is fine — it’s just a bonus if they can make me orgasm but it doesn’t frustrate me if they can’t because it’s really about the client’s pleasure. And if they’re enjoying themselves slobbering away down there then that’s good!

But some women in the thread were talking about how they look foward to “getting properly laid” by a client, and I saw that I don’t have the same feelings about sex as a lot of other escorts because of being ace-spec.

I just can’t understand how you can feel fulfilled in a sexual encounter without an emotional connection, and it would be really wierd to have an emtional connection with a client, so yeah in bookings I have fun, and feel good if I make the client have a good time, but it’s just not real sex for me, just work.

Now, with a romantic partner everything is just better — you have open and honest communication and you care about them and you want to make each other feel good — that’s getting properly laid for me!
