⊴ MAGNUM OPUS ⊵
Posted By: 7heSuper <7hesuper@live.com>Date: 9/21/09 12:07 p.m.

"What's The Super been up to?" some wonder, concerned
Well, this AI is glad that your worries he's earned!
But the truth is The Supe nearly died -- yes, it's true!
Nearly died in the field... and he did it for you.

[ REWINDING ]

While my city's upkeep on most days is a chore
With its populace gone? Not so much, anymore
So I've plenty of time on my digital hands
And with idleness, AI attention expands...





d[( )]T [ZOMG OPEN WORLD NEW MOMBASA GAME]

When probing the time warp that lets me observe
This "forum" you fill with bravado and verve
I noticed a spike in requests for my town
With similar patterns of verbage and noun





[ 2008 ] d[(^^)]T d[(^^)]T d[(^^)]T [ 2552 ]

It's a game you discuss, I soon reckoned with glee
And so I began a long-range shopping spree
I scattered my agents throughout your "web net"
To procure a prize that you won't soon forget

Accoutrements! That was the ticket, I knew
A game-centric armband or Supe-branded shoe
Consulting my Archive's "past fashions" device
I figured that T-shirts would more than suffice

So off ran some minions to research a phrase
Which they would soon place on the shirts to emblaze
While others, from mainframes in North Carolina
Stealth-hijacked shirt sweatshops in faraway China







My primary group quickly met with success:
A well-distilled version of their one best guess
Of the singular tagline you'd all love (they hope)
So I kept it secure in this E-envelope







But my Chinese sub-clones were in trouble by now
They had intruded more than Beijing could allow
Now cyber-defenders were probing my lines
And launching some dangerous EMP mines





[!] [⌖] [↯]

My very existence had become imperilled
INCOMING ATTACKERS, my warning lights carolled
But quick as a cheetah, I turned on a dime
And pulsed out a power surge backwards in time







The past-tunnel shuddered, and in its timequake
The foreign intrusions began to all break
But while the move caused the attacks to abate
It cut my connection to 2008







For long months (in your time) I wasn't around
But by my clock mere seconds had gone and wound down
When I re-established my communication
Surprises soon greeted my investigation!

My sub-selves in China had finished their task
Had labored in secret and done what I ask
Ten thousand t-shirts prepared for screen-printing
The joy that I felt had my hard drives a-glinting!





[ 2009 ] [ 2552 ]

I messaged the bots in '09 to relate
The envelope other bots wrote in '08
Clandestinely, shirt shops were manipulated
To print up the motto that it stipulated





d[( )]T [ SEPT 22 ] ← Halo 3: ODST street date

It took some real effort, to do it in time
But the product itself is now more than sublime
And what timing! Just awesome. Isn't it great?
ODST-shirts done ere the street date?





d[(^^)]T

So here we are, friends! We are set to reveal
The end-result of my implacable zeal
(And between you and me, I'm glad it's on track
One more setback and I think I just might crack!





Here we go

Jubilee!
