So far, the recount and legal costs have been met in both Wisconsin and Pennsylvania! The funds for Michigan are DUE THIS WEDNESDAY, or the state will not recount its ballot.We are so incredibly close. You can donate here.
Quick reminder: It is not news that America’s voting machines have serious cybersecurity problems. Voting machines are simply computers with reprogrammable software, and can be easily modified by infecting malware.
If these three states recount the paper trail and find their system was infected, it will be enough Democratic electoral votes to cause Trump to loose the presidency.
~Robot lives matter too~ The Holy mother of robots followers aid mechanical creatures in need. These old men walk around with their heavy machinery toolboxes and gather all the lost confused bots that have no main directives still active in their ram. It’s a controversial cult, some say they aid the bots in need but others see them as reprogrammers that take advantage of the weak.
Ok first of all the perspective is all fucked up! damn i’m not happy at some of the scaling of the characters but that’s what I get for trying to make all of these characters walk around in a 3 point perspective.
Did callouts for the characters, I really wanted flat shapes and not a lot of line work but again I failed and ended up sketching all of it like usual.
The robots had to be designed to look helpless, slow or confused since the old men would take advantage of them. A church like structure would be designed as the centerpiece but it ended up looking too small … . or . . maybe the entrance is big enough just for the little robots!, yeah that’s what I wanted from the start aha!
After callouts I sketched the whole thing freehand and followed the same procedure as some of the last posts. It was fun to try my hand at the floor reflections.- Gabo
America’s voting machines have serious cybersecurity problems. That isn’t news. It’s been documented beyond any doubt over the last decade in numerous peer-reviewed papers and state-sponsored studies by me and by other computer security experts. We’ve been pointing out for years that voting machines are computers, and they have reprogrammable software, so if attackers can modify that software by infecting the machines with malware, they can cause the machines to give any answer whatsoever. I’ve demonstrated this in the laboratory with real voting machines — in just a few seconds, anyone can install vote-stealing malware on those machines that silently alters the electronic records of every vote.
One-of-a-kind desk hides a pipe organ and fluidic computer #5yrsago
Housefish has a writeup on Kagen Schaefer’s pipe-organ desk, which hides in its drawers a pipe organ that doubles as a fluidic computer, and which has stolen my heart:
At first glance, it’s a relatively ordinary desk, albeit very finely made out of exceptional wood, and with an unusual number of small drawers. Open a drawer though, and there’s a surprise- each drawer operates a wooden pipe organ tube on the back. Opening different drawers plays different notes and lets you play songs. If I stopped right there, a wooden pipe organ desk would already rank among the most novel and impressive pieces of wooden furniture either of us has seen.
But there’s another secret. Inside the desk is a fluidic computer, operated entirely by the air pressure pulses created by opening and closing the drawers. This has been programmed so that playing a predetermined sequence of notes opens a secret compartment somewhere on the desk. It’s also reprogrammable, so you can set it to open when you play the theme to Star Wars, or whatever you want. And in case it wasn’t clear, this is made entirely of wood; there are no electronics of any kind. It is literally something that could have been built using technology available 500 years ago.
her weapon is a gem reprogrammer that’s mainly used to reset gems to “factory settings” but it can do other things like wipe/change memories, undo corruption, or implant data into the gem. the poofed gem fits in the middle slot and it can adjust to shape/size. she can also extend and grow her arms to help fight without using up energy in her gem by shapeshifting.
she is also v rare and is a unique type of jasper that’s strong mentally instead of physically
Vitamins A and C aren’t just good for your health, they affect your DNA too. Researchers at the Babraham Institute and their international collaborators have discovered how vitamins A and C act to modify the epigenetic ‘memory’ held by cells; insight which is significant for regenerative medicine and our ability to reprogramme cells from one identity to another.
Weapon: A gem reprogrammer, can implant/remove data and memories or reset the gem to their default state. It’ll also give you a pretty big bruise if its thrown at you like a frisbee
-Can stretch/morph her arms without using up gem energy from shapeshifting
-Common Quartz abilities
-Technically a defective Ocean Jasper, but a very specific defect that was taken advantage of by Homeworld due to their higher intelligence and made able to be replicated/produced as a “valid” Gem. They’re not produced very often though and are still lower on the social ladder than normal quartz soldiers.
-Due to their similar personality/mind altering abilities, they tend to have a natural rivalry with Zircons
