Registered Phenomena Code: DARK-THEME-J

Object Class: Epsilon-Black




You have selected EPSILON Containment Rating.
Reminder from GD-08:

EPSILON CR:
Epsilon-rated RPCs are anomalies that behave above our current perception. As such, there are aspects of their behaviors that cannot be contained or even observed. Any object or concept that deals with interdimensional anomalies should be automatically classified as Epsilon.

Please justify the EPSILON Containment Rating below.

it's epsilon because I CAN'T READ ANYTHING

Hazard Types: Visual Hazard

Containment Protocols: Revert immediately. Multiple critical Site-022 functions - all involved with the Authority intraweb or basic data terminals - are NOT FUNCTIONING. The humanoid containment wing is locked down. Runoff Blocks 03 through 08 are malfunctioning, the waste from RPC-███, RPC-███ and RPC-███-█ are being dumped into the caverns below the Site - I believe in one section, Maint Union personnel are manually sorting out the explosive pine cones from the non-anomalous ones produced by RPC-███-█. Secure inter-site communications are offline, we are considering using junior researchers as runners. The australian unicorns have broken containment and seized the Level-02 janitorial closet, we saw them sharpening spare mops before the security feed went down. The Site-022 janitors are organizing a counter-attack but we're trying to negotiate first. ASF are shooting the 'Duplex Kraken' (I don't know the RPC # and I can't use the database to find it) to keep it contained, they'll run out of ammunition in a few hours.

Description: Okay. On 3/13/2019, the Authority intraweb and all screen infrastructure in Site-022 was changed from the FUNCTIONAL aesthetic design of a white background with black text and blue accents, to aHORRID grey backround with BLINDwhINGiteWHITE text. This was due to a standard software update pushed out by THE INCOMPEoffsitTENeT web adIDIOminsTS that - what the hell? Is someone else editing this? Yes. YES I Ai'm just watcMhing WHAwaiTt

Hang on hang on

THIS IS AN EMERGENcalmCY doWEwNEEDn TO CONTACT CENTRAL stop with the caps lock
Stop guys
IT'S STUCK THIS SHITTY UPDATE FINALLY BROKE THE LEVEL 02 JANITOR CLOSET COMPUTER it's probably your neglect, the Maint Union can't fix anything more complicated than a mopYOU'RE RESEARCH DIVISION AREN"TYOU YOU GODDAMN EGGYeHEAsD I am WELL STICK ITSTOdPTYoPINGSTOPTYPING STOP TYPING STOP
TYPING

Okay. Hit ENTER after you talk and stop typing over each other

Wait no what am I saying

Delete all of this. It's grossly unprofessional.

FUCK YOU

I can't.

You can't delete? Oh shit, I can't

NoI CAN

T

HEY

Site comms are still down, right?

Yes.

YES

But we can all edit this document but can't delete anything

YEYes.S


Okay. This is ASF Captain Hernandez, deputy commander of site security. I am in my office at the main gate. Who are you - caps lock first other second

GARRY MCCLELLAN MAINTANANCE UNION CONTAINMENT DIVISION JANITOR CLOSET 02

Évelyne Donnet, Research Division OAS Anthropology Department. Section 022-3-B computer lab.

WOW HOW DO YOU DO THE ACCENT THING? WITH YOUR NAME

I thought Closet 02 was held by the australian unicorns? This is Hernandez

IT WAS BUT THE MAINTENANCE UNION ACCEPTED THEIR SURRENDER AT 1630

I see.

Okay

DREMEL TOOL BEATS MOP

Alright.

Christ. We can't upload this to the Codex

That was all Hernandez, fyi

No, we can't -Eve

PROBABLY NOT -I DON'T NEED TO TAG MY NAME, HAH

Goddamit. Stay serious. This is serious -H

No, it's really not. The web admins will fix it and Site-022 will be fine.

(-e)

EXCUSE ME E/VELLYN BUT ITS NOT FINE

That's not how you do the accent.

God'ss sake, this is serious

This is dragging on too long let's move to addendums -H

Addendum: You guys aren't paid to worry about this stuff, but far as I can tell, the global Authority intraweb has always been dark-background and white-lettered

ITS AWFUL I REVERSED THE COLORS ON MY MONITOR AND LOWERED BRIGHTNESS TO NOT BE BLINDED BY WHITE TEXT
LIKE GETTING FLASHBANGED BY ASF ""ON ACCIDENT""

That was an accident and you should've evacuated

THE MAINTENANCE UNION REMEMBERS

The white's a little excessive, but that's an easy fix- and LOOK AT THAT, it just changed to a light grey text, they're fixing it as we speak. -Eve

Security cameras just came online, but other functions are still broken. The door system's screen is half light and half dark and the text is all over -H

RUNOFF BLOCK 03 IS WORKING AGAIN THE FLOW IS STOPPING WERE SENDING GUYS IN TO RESTART SOME OF THE ARCANE FILTERS

That's good to hear. But I'm still worried - for god's sake, I remember visiting ASF Regional Command and all the screens there were light - light themed? Light theme. But they're telling me that "The Authority Intraweb has always used dark theme". What?? -H

What are you thinking? Some kind of gigantic web-based anomaly? -Eve

One that can break a Site's electronic infrastructure, yes

They're fixing it

But it was always like this? Site-022 is just getting updated now feels suspicious. Did we hop dimensions? Did a lovecraftian entity take over the rest of the Authority and this theme change is masking its subversion of everyone else?

You're overthinking it.

NOW IM WORRIED AND THE DARK THEEM STILL SUCKS

And you're whining about it. -Eve

HOW DO THOSE JACKBOOTS FIT? YOU DON'T SEEM TO QUESTION MUCH

Stop it. Look. The color's just - more security functions are coming back online. I doubt a malevolent eneitity would just give me back control of the armory doors -H

I'm calling it now, everything will be fixed in a week. -Eve

A WEEK??? A WEEK??? IF THIS WAS A REAL TECH UPDATE THEY WOULDNT HAVE IT BREAK EVERYTHING AND FIX IT AFTER

No, all the technical details will be fixed by tomorrow. You'll stop crying in a week. -Eve

NOT BAD EGGHEAD

Has our mission changed? -H

WHAT

The Authority. Researching anomalies, Protecting humanity, Containing the horrors, RPC. Communications are opening up. Has anything changed? -H

I wouldn't imagine so. But I wouldn't imagine the theoretical entity would make it easy for us, either. But we're overthinking it.

COMMS ARE WORKING?

Intersite comms are still down, limited contact with command -H

COMMS CODE: 03-03-51-14-MUNION

BUT UNION IS LOWER CASE

I have Maintenance Union Chief Bates on the other end, what the hell

GOOD. TELL HIM MCCLELLAN IS ON THE OTHER END. AND SAY THAT I'M HAPPY FOR HIS WONDERFUL MARRIAGE AND FINE YOUNG SON!

What?

DO IT

He's not happy. Uh, "McClellan you - you prick, and a lot of cursing, you'll be cleaning the shit monster pit for the rest of your days. Why did you give a jackboot - a jackboot?

He's referring to you.

JACKBOOT = ASF

Right. "Why did you give a jackboot an emergency line?" and then a lot of yelling about his wife, you touched a nerve -H

HIS WIFE DIVORCED AND HIS SON IS FAILING TO MAKE A LIVING WRITING A FICTION BLOG, NOT PUBLISHED HE HATES THEM BOTH

HE'S THE SAME CHIEF BATES I KNOW

IM FINE BUT THE DARK THEME IS STILL TERRIBLE

If it helps, I'm talking to my Anthropology Department supervisor in Site-009. Everything seems unchanged. -Eve

Then - we forget that light theme ever existed, right? We don't think about hopping dimensions, or reality altering itself (but only the look of the Authority intraweb), everything is fine. All Runoff Blocks are now operating again, I see -H

YES SOUNDS GOOD

I was never worried about it. -Eve

I won't submit this to command. -H

Of course.




HEY, WE SHOULD GRAB LUNCH TOGETHER SOMETIME

WHILE WE CAN STILL ALL EDIT THIS, GOOD TO LAUGH ABOUT CRAZY STUFF

MAINT UNION TRADITION

Hell, sure -H

Might be nice. -Eve

Oh, by the way - still Évelyne typing - while your Containment and Protection Divisions were running around panicking, us in Research were polling everybody we could find on the new dark theme.

75% prefer it.

THATS BULLSHIT 25 PERCENT DON'T LIKE IT YOU DON'T KNOW WEB DESIGN ANOMALY OR NOT THIS IS A MISTA
