Logs

Jump to: navigation, search
A working machine containing the last log of the dwellers.

Logs have been left behind by the first Colonial wave, preserved on working computer terminals. Every major ruin has at least one of these machines in place and all of them feed into the mystery of the nuclear event that triggered the catastrophic failure of the first colonization of Mars.

We had trouble with an ice converter being overloaded by its electrical control system.
Surge caused the connected tank's heat to drastically increase. A large quantity of the water store was electrolyzed and vented out of the tank as vapor.
Noticeable temperature changes were logged around the tank and atmospheric readings indicated breathable surface conditions for a limited duration.
The result, while disappointing for our mining operations, does show the potential for long term terraforming.
With enough ice and energy we should be able to transform the atmosphere of the planet.
But God, it represents extreme quantities of ice and energy levels that would be off the charts, but it could work; the evidence is there.
Does this make ice even more valuable?

I'm seriously worried about Laurent.

Laurent was hardly seen last week, spending more time on the surface than in the outpost.
Mars is a lonely place and it can really test your mental resolve. I don't think Laurent can cut it.

Dear Executive Director Myrrh, it has occurred to me that if we are dead set on the solar energy route then we must address the issue of the frequent sandstorms.
It should not be complex given the sophistication of AI available to us to predict the arrival of these damaging conditions and simple robotics system integrated with that AI could recoil our panels and prevent the majority of damage.

I am requesting that you reconsider the location of the Novochita colony.
The shadow of the mountain haunts us all.
You know how all these mountains were formed? Fire of the Earth.
Who is to say that they are truly dormant?
Igor swears blind he saw a glow at the summit one night.
Far be it from me to question my superiors but surely a location closer to the Kara treatment unit would be better for us all.

You are in the unique position to help draw aside the veil which is being drawn over the eyes of the masses.
To the east lies a radar array set up by covert forces. This array, we believe, is part of a secret communications network.
Our friends at the mSociety have uncovered a vulnerability within this network, but it is a vulnerability which can only be exploited on site.
If you are willing friend, download this attached executable and load it onto an appropriate medium and attach it to a manual terminal on the radar.
This will both allow all previous records to be captured but allow us a view of all future communications.
We leave the power of veracity and justice within your hands.
And remember friend, the truth lies beneath the surface.

Who let these new guys pass through the psych evaluation? Seriously, get rid of them whoever it is.
They're infecting the other workers with nonsense about the test runs.
"Where are the vehicles really going at all hours of the night? Why are all these runs conducted without sit in supervision of the AI? Why are so many drill units being requisitioned??
Blah, blah, blah, so many questions.
They've been listening to too many conspiracy theories from those damn Ancient Astronauts before coming up to the rock.

Power outages and enforced rationing.
This is all part of the plan, I see it now.
The overseer tells us that Tesnel and Lesta have encountered 'logistical problems'.
Yeah, that logistical problem is the military; we are starting to see the truth and they don't want our questions coming back to Earth -We are all just surplus to requirements.
Not just Ayota, all of us.
It will all just be shown as a terrible tragedy and so few will believe otherwise
