The paperclip maximizer is a thought experiment described by Swedish philosopher Nick Bostrom in 2003. It illustrates the existential risk that an artificial general intelligence may pose to human beings when programmed to pursue even seemingly-harmless goals, and the necessity of incorporating machine ethics into artificial intelligence design. The scenario describes an advanced artificial intelligence tasked with manufacturing paperclips. If such a machine were not programmed to value human life, then given enough power its optimized goal would be to turn all matter in the universe, including human beings, into either paperclips or machines which manufacture paperclips.

so I’ve been poking my head in a few days but with no posts for a few days I’ll provide a status update.
Note that throughout this post I’ll be using ‘we’ to refer to Noxiousnet as a group of people. Seeing as I’ve been de-admined (and rightfully so, for lots of inactivity), I don’t count myself aside from being an unofficial host.
Only a few bits of news on that front. Lots of server drama going on right now, Paradise, tg, CM, and so forth are all up in a twist on the subreddit alone. It’s possible we may be able to situate ourselves as an ‘in between’ with no real attraction to anything beyond the /tg/ code we base ourselves off of, if we use /tg/.
To say nothing of what the drama’s actually about.
Still looking for a copy of Noxstation though I very seriously doubt anyone’s going to bother letting me rehost it myself much less actually get me a copy. Especially with how long it’s been.
It turns out there is a linux BYOND server binary, but it’s terribly unstable – as in, currently, somewhere around 20 minute crashes unstable. I might experiment with it but probably going to just use a screenless wine setup or something.
Still willing to host this though less so at the moment due to the fact I’m unwilling to lose a constant 75% of my server CPU to making sure Sandbox stays happy and snappy if it’ll be empty 75% of the day.
Not gonna happen. Bedwars population wave is starting to die out now, no point in trying to revive a gamemode we’re not going to care about less then 2 months from now.
Also not happening, at least for the time being. I don’t have enough game design experience to make a good MOBA and don’t really want to consider diving tthat deep into Glua just to make an ass-pull attempt at this.
Possibly, and I may be able to get around the constant crashing, but it’ll take me a while of fucking with it to figure it out.
I’m not as willing to host this as I am SS13, but I’m also not against it. If SS13 ends up not working out this will probably be my next choice.
