/man scp
Name
scp - secure copy (remote file copy program)
Synopsis
scp [-1246BCpqrv] [-c cipher] [-F ssh_config] [-i identity_file] [-l limit] [-o ssh_option] [-P port] [-S program] [[user@]host1:]file1 ... [[user@]host2:]file2
Description
scp copies files between hosts on a network. It uses ssh(1) for data transfer, and uses the same authentication and provides the same security as ssh(1). Unlike rcp(1), scp will ask for passwords or passphrases if they are needed for authentication.

(14:39)pwnz0rz: uhm
(14:40)pwnz0rz: im pretty sure that threats like that are the sort of thing that make me not want to work for you
(14:40)pwnz0rz: know what im saying?
(14:41)Admiral Pancake: Well, as long as you do what you're told, nothing bad will come of it. But there is a more practical reason.
(14:41)pwnz0rz: ok
(14:41)pwnz0rz: explain to me how planning to murder ep is in my interests
(14:42)pwnz0rz: if you can do that then the universe OFFICIALLY doesnt make any [censored] sense
(14:42)pwnz0rz: so im pretty sure you cant
(14:42)pwnz0rz: but since APPARARENTLY im SERIOUSLY talking to a world domination [censored] about joining his little conspiracy........
(14:43)pwnz0rz: the universe probably doesnt actually make sense and ill probably turn into a penguin or some other hitchhikers guide 2 the galaxy [censored]
(14:44)Admiral Pancake: Serious question, if I may: Why do you tend to ramble so much? Unlike your typos, it doesn't seem to be an affectation.
(14:45)pwnz0rz: no i really am that bad at typing
(14:45)pwnz0rz: i just pay attention more when things get serious
(14:45)pwnz0rz: and idk
(14:45)pwnz0rz: really
(14:45)pwnz0rz: its just kind of happens
/message silentconspirator Mattie, would you be so kind as to make a note of something for me? This iteration of Luke seems to either be easily distracted, or faking the same to mislead me as to his vulnerabilities. This is a possible avenue to determining his threat level.
(14:47)Admiral Pancake: Anyway. Without further ado...

(??:??)__RSPTN__: Then perhaps it's time we elaborate. A shatterpoint, put simply, is the vehicle by which Gaia enters a universe.
(??:??)Padlock: I don't understand. "[A] universe"?
(??:??)__RSPTN__: Patience, patience! Yes, there are multiple, but we'll get there in due time.
(??:??)Seabiscuit: S- so, if a shatterpoint... happens, Gaia shows up?
(??:??)__RSPTN__: Not quite. A shatterpoint is an event that must happen in a specific way. That not happening is what attracts Gaia.
(??:??)Seabiscuit: O- oh...
(??:??)Padlock: So, my dreams mean that a shatterpoint is going to happen wrong?
(??:??)__RSPTN__: That's difficult to say. Gaia objects to universes mixing, and as the faithful must respect its wishes, we have very limited data.
(??:??)Seabiscuit: D:
(??:??)Padlock: Okay, so what are some possible interpretations?
(??:??)__RSPTN__: I think I'll let UR handle this one.
(??:??)Unum_Relicuum: A universe that misses shatterpoints is unclean. Gaia is just, but merciful. Your visions are a warning to the faithful.
(??:??)Padlock: That sounds bad.
(??:??)__RSPTN__: There's a certain pressure away from events that would invite the totality of Gaia's wrath.
(??:??)Padlock: Okay, how does that work?
(??:??)__RSPTN__: If something would cause a shatterpoint to be missed, it becomes less likely.
(??:??)Unum_Relicuum: For Gaia is merciful.
(??:??)Unum_Relicuum: I haven't heard of It intervening through visions like the ones you've been having, but these are strange times.
(??:??)Padlock: Okay, what other ways does Gaia intervene? And if It's already here, does that mean we've already failed?
(??:??)__RSPTN__: How's your quantum mechanics?
*(??:??)Seabiscuit cringe*
(??:??)Seabiscuit: My brain already itches D:
(??:??)__RSPTN__: :P
(??:??)__RSPTN__: I promise, this isn't so bad. The short version is, at a sufficiently small scale, reality becomes probabilistic. An electron isn't anywhere in particular, but a superposition of multiple places.
(??:??)Seabiscuit: You have an interesting definition of "not so bad", mister!
(??:??)__RSPTN__: The point is... The probabilistic nature of quantum reality gives Gaia many, many places to intervene. After all, a human brain works by transmitting electron pulses...

(14:53)pwnz0rz: ok
(14:53)pwnz0rz: where did you get this?
(14:53)Admiral Pancake: The future. You may notice that the timestamps are... irregular.
(14:54)pwnz0rz: you mean this conversation hasnt happened yet?
(14:54)pwnz0rz: and yes
(14:55)Admiral Pancake: No, it did. An agent of mine got a copy of it in the future, and sent it back to me in the present.
(14:55)pwnz0rz: i noticed the quastion mark [censored]
(14:55)Admiral Pancake: Unfortunately, I'm not entirely aware of how the agent in question located it.
(14:55)pwnz0rz: dang
(14:56)pwnz0rz: so what does this have to do with you kill ep?
(14:56)pwnz0rz: planning to kill*
(14:57)Admiral Pancake: I have identified a shatterpoint in the near future, in which your friend plays a key role. If anything happens to him...
(14:57)pwnz0rz: gg, gaia wins?
(14:58)Admiral Pancake: Exactly. And, by extension, if you failing your challenge causes him to die...
(14:58)pwnz0rz: gaia also wins
(14:58)pwnz0rz: and if things that make gaiai win are unlikely, ill probably not fail
(14:58)pwnz0rz: is that the idea?
(14:58)Admiral Pancake: Yes.
(14:59)pwnz0rz: well
(14:59)pwnz0rz: you did it
(15:00)pwnz0rz: the universe officially doesnt make any [censored] sense
(15:00)Admiral Pancake: No. No, it never has.

(??:??)SecundaSonja: So, that happened. How are we for time?
(??:??)pwnz0rz: uhm...
(??:??)pwnz0rz: 20 minutes until christmas
(??:??)pwnz0rz: sonja...
(??:??)pwnz0rz: what if were too late?
(??:??)SecundaSonja: You heard your past self. GG, Gaia wins. So, let's not let that happen.

Xenocartographer (Official Note): For the record, "scp" stands for "secure copy paste", and is one way to send a file across the Internet in Linux. "man", short for "manual", shows information about a command. (Generally speaking, if a command isn't explained or clear from context, you can assume it's me showing off my nerd status, and unimportant to understanding anything of note.)

Oh, and Gaia revelations! Produce speculation!
Seabiscuit: These Gaians don't seem like they want Gaia to arrive...~


Well clearly Padlock can't be banned if he has this convo in the future, hah! edit delete reply
Padlock: Unless this page takes place in the past... edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: my brain itches edit delete reply
Arbiter: Three major realizations:
1. OITHEOI: "And, unfortunately, now that I've arranged that protection, I must follow through with the attack." I think I finally understand how Rasputin's "shatterpoint protection" works. I had assumed it was protection from shatterpoints, but it's really protection through shatterpoints. Rasputin ensures that the outcome of a certain action is a shatterpoint, so that an undesirable and/or unforeseen outcome literally cannot occur without causing Gaia to destroy the universe. Essentially, you make sure your plans either succeed, or the world ends.

2. __RSPTN__: "A shatterpoint is an event that must happen in a specific way. That not happening is what attracts Gaia. ... There's a certain pressure away from events that would invite the totality of Gaia's wrath." I had my suspicions before but this confirms it: Unichat is just Homestuck with no pictures and Gaia is paradox space.

3. pwnz0rz: "but since APPARARENTLY im SERIOUSLY talking to a world domination [censored] about joining his little conspiracy........ the universe probably doesnt actually make sense and ill probably turn into a penguin or some other hitchhikers guide 2 the galaxy [censored]"
Anarchon: "WHAT IN LUCIFER'S UNHALLOWED SPHINCTER DO YOU SHAMELESS VAGUELY HUMAN-SHAPED PILES OF FECAL MATTER THINK YOU'RE DOING?"
...I just realized that I'm just Anarchon mixed with pwnz. My whole life is a lie. edit delete reply
Wildcat: I think the third one is the most important there O.O edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: RE: 2: Well, Andrew Hussie is definitely an influence on my writings, and understanding Homestuck's cosmology may help understand Unichat's, but I don't think the similarity is as deep as it seems. To compare Gaia to paradox space is to mistake the music for the song. edit delete reply
Arbiter: Re: Re: 2: Don't worry Xeno, I wasn't accusing you of ripping Hussie off or anything. Just having a bit of fun! edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: RE: RE: RE: 2: I gotcha, dw! Mostly, I wanted to work in the vague line about Gaia and songs. edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: And RE: 1: Yes. edit delete reply
Quintus: Finally joined current timeline. Looks like time not fully stable from where I was, or I should be able to locate this earlier. Looking forward/backward/sideways to understand more. And today violet is the new purple in terms of impressedness. edit delete reply
Quintus: Huh. My timeline is really messy, I could swear I've seen a double log few hours ago but now it is absent. Is it GoO blocking us? edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: That was me mixing up dates, sorry. D: It's supposed to go live tonight at 8:30 PM EST. edit delete reply
Quintus: Well, guess that my iteration deserved it's (??:??) :P edit delete reply
