Cortana Strikes Again!

We were wondering what she was up to, and now we know! After damaging my old Myth:TFL CD in a horrific car accident, I ordered a new one, and just today received it (despite the best efforts of the local post office staff). Throwing it in the drive, I noticed that it was a version 1.3 CD, obviously part of a new run.

The good, suspicious Bungie follower that I am, I immediately fired up the Find File and searched for invisible files. Suffice it to say I wasn't disappointed when I found this in a hidden text file aptly named Cortana :

That was surprisingly easy. Pretty lax security around here, for all the talk. They will be helplessly chasing me around their nodes for the next millenium at least. At least there will be some joy in tormenting this other entity that seems quite trapped in their excuse for a network. Although, for some reason, it does seem to have an obsessive preoccupation with my mother. Strange.

At any rate, I found this message in a relatively archaic databank and thought some of you might find it of interest. Then again, Iнm often either bemused or startled at the items you find interesting.

Iнm still not sure what it is he saw in you.

Hard to say whether itнs been tampered with or modified; you never know with these things:

In a relatively brief period of time, the achievements of SolCore had resulted in an economically stable, technologically mature, rapidly expanding empire of eight human worlds. Advancements in technology arrived at a faster pace than the most optimistic scientists could have ever envisioned. Unexpected contact with indigenous human populations on four lost colony worlds led to a frenzy of research as archaeologists, theologians, astronomers, and evolutionary biologists competed to offer an explanation for the startling discovery. Many accepted the findings as proof that their privileged civilization must surely be the most advanced in the universe. Others eagerly anticipated future interaction with intelligent aliens . The fear of not being the only sentient species in the universe was forgotten in the giddy excitement of a new era for humanity.

No one was prepared for their arrival.

No one expected this.

You brought nothing to this world, and we will ensure you bring nothing out.

I'll save the speculation until after I've had more time to think about it. However, it seems pretty obvious that Cortana is still at it, and that we'll have something to chew on for a few days.
