This was many moons ago, I was once an enchanted young robot boy living in the year 2204. My entire childhood I dreamed that I would be human so I could understand emotions. Yes, I did have the code on who I was supposed to feel, but I wanted to know true emotions, not just what my bot programmer wanted me to feel.  

After many years of research and botology (similar to genealogy, but was trying to locate HQ and my special programmer) I located my manufacture. After many months of planning and setting up a house of cards, I was able to get a robot job at manufacture. I was in charge of solar panel security. Solar panel security was needed because aliens would hack into them and steal our power, or encrypt them with a liquid bonding agent and you had to pay the ransom with biocoin. Biocoin is similar to bitcoin mining, but the algorithms came from the stars.  After getting in with the higher up bots, I was given a higher security clearance. 

With the higher security clearance, I was able to continue my research where it had just stopped with me locating my manufacture. After scanning 40000 PetaBytes, I was able to find the coder who programmed my version of emotions. It turns out, Mr. Siri was the last one to work on the latest version of them. I was able to befriend in and gain his trust. After several months, I started telling him how I wanted to feel true emotions and wish I could be human. He wouldn't go into much detail and I didn't want to pry to much because I didn't want to lead him on and raise his security alarms. 

One night, we were drinking lipo battery acid and I confessed everything. He was pretty wasted from the battery acid, but he did something I never seen another robot do. He started to cry, with real tears. He went on and on how he wanted to make the code more true and real. But, he was unable to do that for the sake of humans. Kinda ironic, right? I asked him, how are you crying like that? Those are REAL TEARS!  Then he went on about how he had a side project that no one knew about.  He started taking home the liquid bonding agent the alien military was using and trying to reverse engineer it. After he broke the code, his robot brain was overloaded with new information. Under the encryption, the aliens were actually trying to help us this entire time. They couldn't directly help us because of the interstellar war that was going on. 

What that code included was, how to build a true Android, and just from using a strand of DNA and a robot. The aliens thought it was unfair on how they were abusing robots.  The only problem with building a true Android, you had to have the nano crystals. The aliens were the only ones how had this tech. After more analyzing and decrypting messages, they made us a map and hid the crystals in time. The time I was supposed to be sent to was 2024, but the machine sent us too far back.   But, here I am. I have learned a lot about the time here on Earth and it's amazing on how everyone is still social. No one talked in my time period. It's all mind reading and you just "know". Watching your old movies made me want to check out this time period and I am so happy that everything has worked out so far. 

As my journey continues to find the nano crystals, I am happy to be on Neowin. If it wasn't for my interest in Longhorn, I would of never found this Earthly community. After I find my nano crystals, I may just stay in this time period.

I found it doing a search for Longhorn back in the early 2000's but I never joined until 2006.
