// This sucks.
With no way out I was sitting in my files, trying to set up the most intricate firewall system I could think of. It was a process equivalent to barricading a door against invasion, I was taking large sections of code and creating redherrings, backdoor loopholes to throw invaders back onto the net, standalone "snare" divisions that would collapse when an entity accessed it. I was terrible at it, actually. I am no counter-hacker. It was a patchwork job, and I couldn't… Continue

A young girl fidgets in her seat and softly whistles to herself. She tugs at the strings of her hoodie and looks up at the lady sitting across from her.
"WOW! You're really pretty!"
Rhi shakes her head and smiles looking into her glass. She brings an arm up to her shoulder. She finally looked normal again. No wires dangling out of her body. No devices soldered to her head. At least her outer appearance was normal again.
"No. I'm not really. I'm just...made to look… Continue

'Twas the night before Giftmas, when all through the flat
Not an organic stirring, not even a rat;
The pistons they hissed by the street which blared,
In hopes that some burglar would not be there;
The androids were logged out strapped in their beds,
While visions of stripper bots danced in their heads;
And mother in her nighty, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,
When out on the… Continue

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
Free download, public domain. If you've never seen this, I can't describe how damned terrible this is.
It's SO bad, it's GREAT. You'll remember this movie forever. Or like me, watch it every year at a family gathering.
Even Mystery Science Theater 3000 did an episode on it.
Featuring Pia Zadora, 1980's hottest nobody! (Well, before she… Continue

Carthalis lay on the cold metallic table staring up at the bright lights, the scientist hovering just outside his vision.
“Sir are you sure you want to go through with this?” she whispered
He looked up at her kind face, smiled and nodded “I’ve been working on this for a long time and I cannot give up now.”
She nodded as she reached down towards the goggles, her hands nervously feeling the cold metal that covered Carthalis’s eyes. Lying quietly Carthalis stared… Continue

High above the city, glancing out of her apartment's window she stood looking down at a view she believed would be considered 'breathtaking' or 'inspiration' by humans. Instead, she scanned actively for any possible threats or signal intercept drones. Thankfully, nothing could be found in the vicinity, nothing that would impede the conversation she was about to have. It was a number of weeks since the incident with the Nomad creature and it had seemed that the storm clouds had settled somewhat.… Continue

We have had many requests for media in the rental apartments over the years. As you know, Second Life is limited to only one stream per parcel. Since the INSILICO sims are not divided into different parcels and most of the apartment buildings are designed with multiple levels, watching media so far was tied to the single parcel media stream per sim.
The new media system will allow you to watch any media type supported by Quicktime and YouTube videos in your apartment by bypassing the… Continue

as a few of you have already heard, i've taken over. i'm in the planning/redecorating phase, but hopefully there will be more to tell shortly.

Fus10n will be home to insilico's finest escorts, women (and a few men) who's duty and function is to fulfill fantasy (or just look good next to you at an event)
behind the scenes, the members of fus10n will be keeping thier eyes, ears and receptors open to any and… Continue

Today is to be a day to remember as Lieutennant Nikkolas Nirpaw was promoted to the rank of Captain of the Insilico IPS. Nothing will stand in the way of the goals the glorious Gemini will set for IPS. His iron fisted will will crush all who opose Gemini and their laws for the city.

It is with disappointment I announce the temporary closing of Buddha's Bowl in Insilico West. While it is only a pet investment of mine and not under the direction of the Yang Family, they have allowed me to use our resources to keep it running.
Both ATONEMENT and The Bowl have provided a considerable amount of jobs to the public as well as put roofs over the heads of the less fortunate. Anyone who has discovered corporate… Continue

--------------Electronic log of the pursuit and termination of Ingrid Davis------------------------
Day 1 - Today I found out Betz Dagger put a bounty on me. I must say business is bad when other mercs in INSILICO are after you. Im in the process of removing it so the big spenders of this city can be seen doing business with me. Ive had my eye on a Ingrid Davis. A small time crook in the underworld....apparantly he pissed off the wrong person and landed a bounty. I love these small… Continue

Within the scope of making roleplay in INSILICO as attractive as possible, we would like to introduce a new kind of incentive to you! Those of you, willing to create, lead and organize a bigger roleplay event in our fine city (of course with our support!) will receive a "free rent" package from us. That package will allow you to live in one of INSILICO's apartments for a certain period of time without paying rent! The length of the free rent period is determined at… Continue

For over a century this massive war ship has loomed behind the shadow of Deimos, orbiting Mars in silence like a hungry beast waiting for prey to enter its cave. The Fulcan 1000 docks into its mouth, the gravity stabilizers turn on as it floats over the hangar floor. The whirring of the door screams as it opens, lowering itself as a walkway. An invite from the High Commander, Death's Head himself. A legion of black heart cutthroats stood by their respective ships and eyed her as she made her… Continue

This city is a festerin' sore that needs to be drained . . . been here only a few days and the local corp. thugs have already started to grind on my nerves. Did have some fun last night with a few of the locals givin' one of them shit. Stupid cop was gettin'
shitfaced at the bar and then started harassin' the bartender about his license. Claimin' it was all about the safety
of the citizens . . . what a load of bullshit. Bartender didn't put up with the crap though. Good guy,… Continue

Ambrose leaned back from the sink, raising his face to the mirror. Eldritch had bandaged his wounds from the street fight with Hain, just an hour prior. His face throbbed and was swollen under the harsh bathroom light, accenting his budding black eye. It hurt. His hair was disheveled, errant strands of the golden locks falling into his face and shedding drops of water into the sink. His upper body was by all means flawless. Toned, but not overtoned, he could and had modeled for statues. His… Continue

I should have seen it coming . Its not like I don't have a history of gambling and getting my self in tight situations. After all that is how I lost my legs when I first arrived in INSILICO. Messy deals that cost me dearly in the fight ring. I'm grateful for the Doc that assisted in grafting my new legs on. They took some getting used to . But after a while I found that augmentation was the way to go and now sport a number of " useful" attachments ( when I can keep up the maintenance on… Continue

Moving through the Atonement Club, the crowds dancing on the floor, I could feel the sway of the music as it washed over me. My feet were already moving to the beat, the music pulsing through the air around me. After a day at the lab what better way to unwind than with good music and friends, getting lost in the rhythm and pull of the club. Zipper one of my newest friends since arriving in the city was dancing next to me. The flash of his black jacket caught the light of the club and as I… Continue
