New Technical Issues
rating: +192+x

Welcome to the Technical Issues page. You are all free to ask me about any issue you might be having (with a computer, mind you), I will try and assist you in resolving those issues. Don't be bashful about asking me questions, I probably won't mess with your clearance level if you aggravate me. Probably. Mark your request with the date at the bottom of the page, I will answer all questions in the order received. Your call is very important to us…
~Technical Researcher Rosen

Due to a… charmingly high number of requests, I am no longer responding to inquiries related to the following subjects and bodily functions.

  • Semen, whether human or animal
  • Any other sexual excretion
  • Really, anything gross coming out of a human body is your own problem.
  • Any other equally horrible things I haven't thought of at time of writing.

Anything added to this page relating to anything on this list or something else I don't like will be deleted summarily, and I will be very, very cross with you.

Hey Rose, I just installed enabled wireless access on one of my younger robots and you know how it is, it seems like a good idea to connect to random access points because viruses only hit bad robots. Long story short, despite programming it to always monitor downloads and make safe connections, I think my robot may have contracted E-AIDS. Anything you can do to help? - Junior Research Assistant Dr. Gravity

Here's my advice: Tell your robot to get itself defragmented and to inform all the data ports it may have interfaced with over the last month to get themselves scanned. It's the responsible thing to do.

Do EMPs work on those damn kids skateboarding on my street? If so, can we use one? -Research Assistant Reject

EMPs only nail electronic stuff. Unless those teens are androids, that wouldn't work. I would recommend using an actual magnet, a large one, and have it target the screws holding their wheels together, or however those deathtraps work. I'll refer you to engineering for any help you need getting that set up.

Rosen, do me a favor and re-enable my status. Pat was a jackass lunatic, but he was thorough. I've been dodging misdirected "demonstrationtion to D-class" orders since Pat threw his hissy fit. Also, I may or may not have sent this through someone else's workstation, as mine has attempted to kill me on three different occasions despite not having any self-propelling mechanism. ~ Dr. Martin Engineer Kap

Yeah… about that. Y'see, Pat was pretty anal about his security protocols. So much so, that he didn't disengage them before he mysteriously disappeared. I've been going through his notes to try and find what he actually did, but most of it is just him ranting about somebody names "Dumont the Destroyer" and long winded eulogies about pudding. The best I can do is transfer you to work that exempts you from the monthly execution until I can get this figured out. How does "Procedure 110-Montauk" sound?

Hey Rosen, my computer was being a little slow a minute ago, so I tried to increase the voltage that the computer received to around 10 kW more. I thought it made sense because more power makes more energy, right? Well, it didn't work. I tried looking online for a fix, and they suggested I delete something called win32. After doing that, I kept getting errors or something like that. A colleague of mine told me he could format the BIOS for me, and I graciously accepted; yet that still did not work. I have tried many fixes, and right now my computer is kind of on fire. I'm not worried about that, though. How can I make my computer work again, maybe to where I can make it faster? ~ Dr. Taylor

Try to download some more RAM. If that doesn't work, reformat your ZIP drive. If all else fails, reboot it twice and call me in the morning.

Rosen, for some reason, my inbox keeps getting spam sent to it. The strangest thing about it is that they all say something along the lines of, "To the Past Me: X", with the the X being something mundane that apparently has 'harsh consequences on the future'. I've done all the things that it says will cause 'the disruption of the timeline', and so far nothing of ill consequence has happened. Should I chalk this up as a prank, or should I be worried? ~Dr. Nyehcat

I wouldn't worry about it, going over your personnel file there's no way that you're ever going to be doing anything of consequence so your future self, or one of your co-workers, is probably just playing a joke on you.

Rosen, I got Dr. Nyehcat a TARDIS for his birthday but now I want it back. What do? -Agent Convit

TRY HOLDING DOWN THE SHIFT KEY WHILE TYPING UNTIL I CAN REQUISITION YOU A NEW KEYBOARD. PERHAPS SEE IF ONE OF YOUR COWORKERS WILL LOAN YOU ONE. IF YOU CAN, TRY TO UNSTICK THE BUTTON. OR JUST START SHOUTING ALL THE TIME WHEN YOU TALK TO PEOPLE, SO THEY READ YOUR TEXT IN YOUR LOUD VOICE.

Saluto te, Rosen.
In nomine Patris et Eber et Spiritus sancti, quaeso. Ego sum habens difficultatem usura artificio anima inspectionem quod dicitur ad Site XIX. Ut scitis, nostri doctrinis enim continentiam de quaedam requiram illa actiones a humana singulorum qui demonstrationnstrare appropraite gradu pietatis. Dum normalis usu fuerat confirmare et temptare fidem pertinet singulorum per inquisitionem, nostri reductiones in numerum elit non requiritur uti processus mechanica et electrica ad automate inquisitio.

If you're looking for an exorcist you've really come to the wrong place. If you don't mind doing things God might find displeasurable, like allowing undead tin zombies to possess your stuff, I'm sure the Church of the Broken God would be all over that like cultist flies on a holy shit.

Hello, Mr. Rosen: I have many names. My operator has named me Belu the Unwavering, even when I insisted on being named my natural name. I am sending this message to you for help. Get me away from this maniac, Dr. Taylor. He tries to insert baloney into my CD drive, even when I plead him not to. This ridiculous name that he has assigned me has been burned into my artificial memory. His browser history is enough to drive one into madness. He drops food all over the monitor and keyboard. As Technical Researcher, I hope you will take pity on a sentient computer and re-assign me to another, more competent user.

-Belu the Unwavering

I have requisitioned Dr. Taylor ANOTHER computer. His old computer has been put into storage and cataloged as an anomalous object until such a time comes when I have a use for a snobby computerbox. Any more of these, Taylor, and you're going to be paying for them.

Dear Sir,
It seems our correspondence route with our own technical support has fallen victim to a temporal anomaly. We of the American Security Containment Initiative can do very little to remedy this and would much appreciate assistance from your end.

Regards, B. Franklin, ASCI Researcher

Nice try, But I happen to know that Benjamin Franklin was mourning the death of his wife Deborah in 1774, and would not have had the time to look into computerbox tech-y matters. Checkmate, fake news.

Roseman, my pornography collection got erased from my Gateway. Can you retrieve it? -Agent Convit

Look over here, we got ourselves a wise guy. Well, Mr. Convit, I regret to inform you that your computers files were all irretrievable, so I had your computer disposed of. Not to worry, because this time tomorrow a brand-new e-machine will arrive at your desk, just for you. You're welcome. As for the [REDACTED] on your drive… you're a sick man. Not criminally sick, but sick nonetheless.

Rosen, another problem that may or may not be related to Senior Staff Shenaningans. Someone did an in-place reinstall of every one of my computers (including my personal laptop, somehow), made Internet Explorer 7 the default and only browser, and revoked my software-installation permissions on all of them. As my work requires extra precautions against drive-by downloads and other viruses, I need Firefox reinstalled (or at least unlock my account so I can do it myself), because AdBlock Plus is the only workable solution I've found to prevent them from even reaching the system, since the antivirus won't catch it in time to prevent [DATA EXPUNGED] (How the heck did they get access to my laptop? It's at home, for crying out loud!). - Dr. Okagawa

It seems your problem is that your computer is too desirable, and people keep messing with it as a result. As such, I have replaced your computers with a complete suite of WebTV applications. Then I went ahead and replaced the laptop with a Commodore PET. Then I forgot what I came in your office to do, so I ate your lunch and called it a day. I hope it solves your tampering issues.

The janitor's Roomba won our damn NCAA bracket. Can you deactivate it so that I can claim my rightful prize? -Agent Convit

Dude, the Roomba has had that bracket on lock for the last 4 years. Don't see why you're so upset. And even if I wanted to deactivate it, the Ethics Committee says that would make your office a hazardous working environment. Just let it go.

Rosen,

That damn D-Class dropped me into an email on 713 and sent it to my own laptop. GET ME OUT OF HERE!

I guess I'll just go through every laptop on-site looking for you, since it must be urgent if you don't tell me who or where you are! I'll be right on it.

Hey Rosy, my computer terminal stole my vuvuzela somehow. Tell me if you see it about, won't you? - Junior Agent Lucas

Good news- I killed two birds with one stone by fixing both of your problems.
Bad News- The stone in that analogy is the big rock I keep in my office, and the birds were your computer and monitor. So… yeah. Problem solved.

So I found my friend's computer, and I decided to "hack" it. So instead of writing that they're gay on their Facebook, I'm going to put porn on their laptops! Aren't I being incredibly clever and hilarious and original! -Agent Convit

See, I know you're lying to me Convit, because we're not so different you and I. Friendless, alone, about the only difference is my obsession is puttering around with old computers and yours are pornographic pursuits. The difference between us being, my skills aren't going to get me fired when tech support reports me for workplace sexual harassment.

Rosen, I know what you're thinking… "why does Taylor insist on writing to me? Does he need a Gateway today again? Well, no, but I still need help. See, I'm not the superstitious kind of guy, so to keep the meddlers out, I tried to make a machine that would drop a step-ladder on anyone who walked into my office. Unfortunately, I forgot about this and did not turn it off before entering. Long story short, I have a splitting headache (though that may just be the stitches above my skull breaking), there's a video starring Sasha Grey on my computer (which is now covered in what I could only hope as rather viscous milk), and my pants are nowhere to be found. Talk about bad luck! So, Rosen, what do? ~Dr. Taylor

NOTE TO ALL PERSONNEL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
Dr. Taylor is officially banned from requisitioning any new equipment from the IT department. After 3 separate towers, 4 monitors, and god knows how many repairs, I am throwing in the towel. Taylor, you will have to make do with what you have.

Come by my office anytime to pick it up and drop the old one off.

Ever heard of 'wheeking'? It's a sound that guinea pigs make. Unfortunately, it's not a sound that the voice commands accept on my computer. Or any computer for that matter. Do you know how hard it is to type on a full-sized keyboard when you're 22cm in length? -S███████

I have ordered you a novelty sized keyboard that should fit your…needs. It's basically a big slab of plastic, it's supposed to be peanut-butter proof so you can run around and push buttons and let loose the… things guinea pigs make to your hearts content! You're welcome.

I'm not sure if you're the one I should be talking to about this, but there appears to be a large, angry squid inside my monitor. The problem is, it just gets… let's say "uncooperative"… when I try to get it out. Should I try something else, or just ignore it and hope it goes away? -Dr. Marvel

That is a screen-saver, Dr. Marvel. There are no sea creatures living in your computer. Remember when we had our little talk over the "crazy ball" that was bouncing around in there, or when the computer had frozen your family and was holding them hostage on an exact copy of your timeshare in Bangor? This is like that.

Okay, how about, could you either get me a keyboard small enough for a guinea pig to use easily, or have the computer systems recognize wheeking as voice commands? The huge keyboard just made things worse. -S███████

Hello, IT. We are down at Site-██, Memetics Lab 12C. And we were wondering if there is a way to revert a desktop background image without looking at the screen? It seems someone opened a rather nasty Visual Memenetic and managed to set it to the background. This would normally not be a problem, but several files are needed on the hard drive. We've already lost several researchers, and the first tech that tried. For now the screen is unplugged, but we have no way of resetting the desktop. Help?
-Junior Assistant Researcher M██████ (Current Acting Head Researcher of Memetics Lab 12C

Step 1. Remove hard drive.
Step 2. Place monitor on a flat, dry surface, away from pets or small children.
Step 3. Obtain hammer.
Step 4. Apply percussive maintenance to monitor with maximum velocity.

I'm getting a "An Ethernet cord has become disconnected" error here. Everything is connected on my end, so I'm guessing this might be a problem in your server room or however these things work. Any idea? I have some file work that needs to be sent to another Site, so the sooner the better. - Field-Agent Beam

Yeah, 'bout that. I recommend you send it through the parcel post. Maybe put it on one of those disk-y thingy if it's too much data for a floppy. Things might take a bit to sort out on the server end, Rosen got a bit drunk and messed about a bit with the wiring before he left.

Researcher Eisenberg here. Some fuck messed with my computer as a part of some fucking prank, must have been during lunchtime. I'm not particularly eager to use Ubuntu 10.04, especially since the fucking automatic sampler only has drivers for Solaris 8. Well, had, since all the files in my home folder are currently named LYNX.LNX.some-fucking-number. Need it fixed somehow before the next set of samples need to be run through at 4. Thanks in advance.

Hey Eisenstein, so I heard you needed a new computator. Thing is, I don't really know what a Ubuntu is, nor am I even sure which language that word originates from. Is it Swahili? I bet it's Swahili. It's almost always Swahili. Anyway, since we don't have any of those, I went into the store room and got you something to stand in till you can get that Cat-Based one sorted. It's uh…..

DAMMIT this is not fair! I've been trying to get myself reinstated as something above janitor level ever since that whole business with Pat, and now I find out other people are getting the assignments!? What does a man have to DO when it's been confirmed that he was wrongly demonstrationted just to get bumped back up!?
On another note, since I've had to choose between leaving the Foundation and dealing with my current duties, I've decided to tough it out. Can someone replace the electronic lock on Supply Closet 3-B? It shouldn't even have a speaker on it, but every time I unlock it the thing yells at me in German.
- FORMER Technical Engineer Kap

I find that on the rare occasion that a man such as yourself, being of the janitorial persuasion, seeks to make great gains within this by all means indifferent and bureaucratic organization of ours, the best thing to do is raise yourself up by the boot straps, put on a brave face, get down to the nitty gritty, and sabotage the competition. Put smart bombs in their Cap-N-Crunch, add Vaseline to their gun-cleaner, heck, just go along and pop a needle chock full of a little bit of liquid cyanide between their oh-so-comfy covers. You do whatever it takes son, whatever it takes.
In regards to your secondary (but of equal import) aquestionation, I recommend that you get Mr. Klopson down in engineering to have a look at the fellow. If anyone knows sentient-cabinetry of German make, it'll be Klopson. I heard that he once talked a deranged ceiling fan off a ledge. Yup, that Klopson is one heck of a talker. Shame that most everything he says is jibberish.

So, I was playing around with some beakers the lab boys gave me and I accidentally turned my parrot into a laptop. Should I shoot it or keep it? It keeps saying it will have the fall of humanity soon. -Agent Thesson.

Well, I wouldn't recommend hooking the little monster up to any ICBMs, if that's what you mean. All in all though, most Sentient/Malicious computational devices tend to be relatively harmless, just so long as the computer isn't too powerful and doesn't have a robo-gun hooked up to it. Tell ya what, if it works, keep it, and if it demands crackers, give it crackers. Just don't you be hooking that abomination up to the network.

Hey, do you know why my code sequences keep getting re-written? I've got them backed up on the server, but I think one of the other researchers, or a skip are recompiling, and screwing with my recursive algorithms. Now half the hotlinks on the server are down, and there's …a bunch of blinky lights next to a couple of the containment displays. Also, the algorithms have filled up 67 petabytes with junk data, that I can't erase. No hurry though. -Technician Bryant

67 petabytes? Shouldn't be too hard to erase. Just open up a task manager and… Wait, a petabyte is apparently pretty damn huge, according to this guide. Huh, one petabyte is a million gigabytes! Anyway, I have dealt with this before. Just use my 5-Step Program to Fixing a Computer: (results may vary)
1) Practice your backswing a little.
2) Go to the tallest point in the facility near an unbroken window.
3) Put your defective piece of hardware on your tee.
4) Draw a smiley face on the window. Spray paint or Sharpie, either will do.
5) Smash the window's face in with the hardware, then ask Rosen to give you a new one.

I know that I'm bad with any sort of coding, but I don't even know how this could possibly happen. I was tweaking the code on one of my programs to find out why it was running all weird, and now there's an image on my monitor of what looks like Winnie the Pooh stuck in a hole with the words "HELP I'M STUCK" written above it in a book typeface. I didn't want to requisition another computer since it would be a hassle and this one's probably still perfectly functional, but I still need to finish my work and I can't see a damned thing with a huge animated bear ass in the way. Could you get rid of it please? -Junior Researcher Chibi

Chances are, you activated the "Feed Bear Honey" subroutine somewhere along the way. Now he's too fat to get out of the hole. You'll have to wait a while for him to slim down. By no means are you to feed him any more honey, no matter how much he pleads. There's no telling what he can do if he reaches critical honey mass, but I can very certainly guess they'll make a Godzilla-style documentary based off of it. I imagine that Oprah Winfrey will guest star in it.

Congratulations, brave and noble hacker, through your intelligent and clever use of intellect and raw, unadulterated cunning you have successfully left me completely dumfounded and at an utter loss for words. Seriously though, I don't think you understand. This. Is. Officially. The Most. Intelligent. Thing. I. Have. Ever. Seen. Men could live for centuries, for millennia, gathering the knowledge and wisdom of their lands and many others, and still not reach the level of ability that is presented here. The magnificence of the thing, the sheer wonder that such a majestic creation can bestow upon us lowly and unworthy mortals, is far beyond the grasp of a mere man such as myself. I would thank you, but I believe to even involve myself with thee within society would be to ask too much, for I feel that one of such ability as yours is not fit for communication with mere men. Please, fine sir, do not attempt to contact me again. I feel that the magnificence of your presence would be too much for myself to bare.

Hypothetically, in the instance that one of the janitors were to wander into a lab and be digitized by a combination of experiments which were in the room completely coincidentally, and then in another completely unrelated accident uploaded to an unknown network through a number of proxies. Which disk of SCP-335 would said janitor most likely be stored upon and what would be the best method of retrieval? This is a purely hypothetical situation of course, and I am, of course, completely not at fault for this having occurred around noon in this completely imaginary situation. -Assistant Emon

Had this hypothetically happened at exactly 12:14 PM and had you supposedly been around and unwilling to aid your fellow co-worker, then I would suggest looking for the one with that might have his name on it. Of course, if you had coincidentally been recorded by yours truly, and if you perhaps enjoyed living, then I would very highly recommend that you go to room 386 with around $2,000 in fifty dollar bills.

My computer is literally shitting itself. Wat do. -Dr. G.W.

It appears that your computer has caught a virus of some variety, possibly of extra-dimensional origin, that has resulted in a severe case of the runs. Personally, I recommend that you buy yourself a new computer, but according to Foundation Protocol Document TD:132725-AYWT it is required that in the event of an extra-normal technical ailment or flaw, the affected machine be submitted to the research department for study. Personally, I recommend the office of Dr. Hendrickson, largely on account of him having consumed a sandwich from the break room that was quite clearly labeled as belonging to someone else. Make sure to sanitize your desk as well.

My problem is this-I walked away from my computer to get a drink. I come back, and some bastard has shoved a banana into the tower. Before I req a new one, is there any fix?

Say, I'm sending a couple of the robotic speedboats with grabber arms into the Danube delta to catch something that seems to cause death to everyone within 40 metres of it. My postdoc is an serious gamer - can we hook up the robots to a PS3 controller to make chasing it while firing tranquilizer darts easier? -Dr. Gallow

I tried to do that, but it seems that nothing worked. So I picked up some random junk from Rosen's personal stuff and hit it with a hammer until the wires went in. That didn't work either, but I did find an RC remote controller. Do what you can with it. Hopefully, Rosen won't miss those things I hit with a hammer; that being all of them.

Mr. Rosen, I was recently diagnosed with explosive carpal tunnel syndrome (long story involving a body-mod SCP) and would appreciate it if I could get an ergonomic keyboard and mouse. After the last 2 times my hands were blown off by micro-explosions in my wrists, the Medical Department says they won't re-attach them again. - Prof. Bjornsen

Certainly. I've spoken to the boys downstairs, and we've come up with the perfect solution. This keyboard is so tough, that even if your wrists were blown to smithereens only inches away from the QWERTY, it wouldn't even have a scratch. Also, we've used the same technology we use to clean up after those messy SCP's to make it chunk-proof, so when your hands go flying due to a premature detonation, you can be satisfied with the knowledge that your keyboard will still be fully functional.

Terribly sorry to bother you all, but I just have a quick question. For the latest while, I've been accepting the push of patches from you guys, because I know that you have the interest of your computersthe Foundation at heart. Recently, however, I was pushed something of an odd update for Adobe Flash by an unknown source, which initially appeared to come from a Foundation-verified source, but was interspersed with claims of apocalyptic prophesy, dead baby jokes, chocolate cream pie, mutilated animals, and images of what I can only imagine to be SCP-682 in mating season.

Ordinarily, I wouldn't blink twice at this, but because this is originating from a side of the Foundation which tends to eschew such pranks, I'm mailing you to verify if this is in fact a legitimate patch. If not, should I merely attempt to delete the patch on my own and begin work on antiviral procedures in the field, or should I close the laptop, disconnect the battery, and leave it unpowered until I can send it in?

Sincerely, Agent Schism

Oooh, sorry, that patch was for the Delta-T Temporal Anomaly department, for their Scantron Realty what-have-you things. I've sent the proper patch to the affected computers. Anyone who already downloaded the patch should consult an alchemist. Or something.

Rosen, what's the "memz.exe" virus, and how can I get rid of it? It's destroying my system, and it won't stop popping up random google searches about… you know. Oh, and Minceraft.
- Researcher K█████

Maybe stop visiting ███████████████████████████.███/█████████. I mean it wasn't technically blocked, but good god, it should have been and is now. Please uninstall your web browser, maybe delete the e-mail client you used to contact me with, probably best to just burn all your clothes and possessions to be safe.

Good afternoon Rosen.
So lets just say there was an accident which caused me to lose several keys off my keyboard. I now have the F3 and Spacebar, it's getting a little hard to work with. Do you have any spare keyboards lying around?

- Dr. Wildcard

Note: 11/09/17
Hey Rosen.
So I attempted to hunt down youroffice to ask you directly since you hadn't responded, I think I found your Office, either way I took a new Keyboard from there. So the problem now is that said keyboard is trying to kill me. Why is this Keyboard homicidal and how can I stop it.

- Dr. Wildcard

I don't know how you got rid of it but you're keeping it. Thanks!

Rosen,
I have recently created a Tumblr account. My computer is very slow, and I asked for help on Tumblr. Someone told me to delete something called 'system 32'. So I did, and I think my computer has run out of batteries. But when I try to charge it, it doesn't charge. Why? I need to do Tumblr!

- Doctor Hillary Johnson

You're fired.

Hiya Rosen,
So, someone though it'd be a good idea to write SCP-033 into one of my maths papers, and now…
Anyway, how would one recover several months of grueling calculations and proofs?

-Dr. Krayen

That's what we pay you for bub.

We get paid? - Agent Convit

Soooo, for some reason when I was updating my personnel file, the database immediately moved the contents of the page into SCP-048's slot, and it marked it as an "approved change" as well. I don't have enough clearance to view 048, so could you find out what the problem is? Thanks.
-Junior Researcher Jeremy

I'm not seeing any Jeremy's in the Junior Researcher rolls. There's no SCP-048, because stupid people are paranoid, so I've gone through earlier database iterations in time machine and restored things to before this message was sent. Hope this helps, whoever you are.

THIS IS AN AUTOMATED MESSAGE DR GREGORY HAS BEEN TRAPPED INSIDE A HARD DRIVE IN HIS OFFICE AT SITE-17. REQUESTING IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE AND SERVING OF MEDICATION.

What the fuck? The whole Site 17 server is just gone. Like the server room doesn’t exist anymore. Rosen, WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO?

I ate the server. How to cure digital diabetes?
-[Data Corrupeted]

I uploaded digital insulin to the database. You can apply that to, wherever the equivalent of your liver would be.You guys need to be more understanding, we have backups here and e-diabetes is a serious illness. Recommending sensitivity training to all personnel at Site-17. Dr. Gregory can't help being a sentient super-AI now.

Hi Rosen, Dr. Fossil here.

My son's really into computing and he's great at keeping secrets, so I think he'd do great at the Foundation. To help establish him, could you take him in for work experience? It'd mean so much to me, and he isn't any bother. He can look after himself, so he'd really just be a bit of help around the requests. Please? If you can help him ultimately get a job, I promise I'll handle all the requests for my site for as long as he's employed.

Please?
-Dr. Fossil

Was that the kid who showed up in my office unannounced when I got back from sick leave? I think he's still here somewhere. It's easy to get lost with all the stuff I've got lying around. If you ever feel like coming back to collect him, let me know. I've been feeding him sandwich crusts and stuff so I think he's still eating. That or the rats have come back. But hey, if they're back, he's at least got a food source. A good kid. Resourceful.
~Rosen

Rosen will be taking some time off due to health reasons.

Dear Sir,
So, I replaced my CPU with a low-level reality anchor. I figured, it can account for the probability vectors of thousands upon thousands of synchronized timelines, it can account for my Snopes page being on 24/7. Good news, it works… bad news, my office is filled with leaking timelines and there are about two dozen of me typing this out as we speak. Could you troubleshoot this, please?
Sincerely, Researcher D. Li

I've alerted an MTF, we've sealed the office off in the interest of protecting the space-time continuum and all that jazz. If you ever figure out how to debunk time itself, we'll let you out, otherwise, marking this one as closed.

For some strange reason, if I leave a report open and take more than 15 minutes to do more research for it, I get this weird error message saying something like "your 15-minute edit lock has expired." Does anyone know why this is happening?
-A confused researcher.

It's the damned WikiNot architecture we use as the back-end of our database software. It works well enough, but it's got a lot of limitations. Bear with it for the time being, maybe one day something better will come along.

Rosen,
My samples of a certain anomalous, heavily mineralized plantoid have been having little growth spurts at irregular intervals, and to make a very long story short, I finally figured out that the timing correlates with firmware updates to the greenhouse's router. Are you by any chance available for a brief consult to figure out what exactly the router's doing that this critter likes so much? If not, can you recommend someone who might be, or else a good crash course in wireless networking?
— Chelsea Elliott

Interesting. It could be that some small changes to the router's distribution of your data is causing unusual lighting or watering patterns to emerge, and the plantoids are responding to the novelty. Keeping them occupied might give you continuous growth consistent with those spurts. Maybe try spending some more time with them, read a book in their vicinity or teach them a skill plants might be capable of. Like, uh, I dunno, fly fishing? I don't know what people do for hobbies.

Hey Rosen, I think one of those idiots down at Medical hit me with an Class A amnestic. For the life of me, I forgot how to do a simple for loop in Java. I swear to God I'm not being lazy. Can you help me build this web crawler? It's due a week from now.
- Junior Researcher Adam Hudson

I don't think that medicinal amnestics are legal in this state. That wouldn't have deleted any work you'd already done on a crawler, either. Therefore, I do not believe you and will only provide the same dog-eared Java manuals I've been handing out since the 90's.

Hey, so, been awhile since the last request. I guess everything has been good? Anyway, there seems to be a problem when I try to access… really, any medical records. Every time my computer appears to bring up an error with the words "Sorry, you are not authorized to view medical records on this computer. Please contact Rosen and tell him he's a dick for me, by the way."
So uh…. yeah. Not sure what to do about this.

-Dr. Range ~~ Site-19 Medical Department

Yeah I had all my arms and legs broken but I'm better now. That's the apparent new standard error message the temp workers picking up my workload put in while I was convalescing. I'm trying to purge them from the system, so let me know if it pops up again. I don't know how deep the wise-assery goes.

Well, me hearty, so I put me computer through 914, in the hopes that it mayhap would fill out me paperwork for me. Didn't work, and now I'm left with a computer that only types in pirate-speak. How may ye assist me, matey?
— Captain Davenport

Network access privileges have been revoked, I'm sure that Dr. Veritas is going to be having words with you shortly. You'll be scrubbing the poop-decks for a month, matey. Try not to blink.

I was digging through old 914 storage for my boss Researcher I. Darby and opened the crate he told me too. Now Im stuck in a hard-drive and only have my phone and it is very dark. Can you send help or a flashlight or something?
— Junior Researcher Laganson

So, Dr. Amastov was putting a few copies of SCP-1471 through SCP-914. He was scheduled for termination following exposure to some dangerous memetics. But he was allowed to do a few last tests before he was terminated. Unfortunately he managed to put himself in on very fine, along with one of the phones. Now SCP-1471-1 has been replaced with Amastov, and he seems very pleased with himself on avoiding termination. Do you have any suggestions for how to remove him/terminate him?
— Dr. Ricardo
