Hello all! I am carbonCore.
I found the Foundation through TVTropes, reading a page about Crysis, I believe. There was a joke about it being installed on a quantum computer, and the computer in question linked here. One thing lead to another, and after reading a few dozen SCPs, I decided to join.
I wonder: has anyone here heard of a book called Roadside Picnic? It's a Russian science fiction book involving an incident where aliens (apparently) dumped a bit of their garbage on Earth; said garbage turned out to be extremely valuable technology, at least for us primitive human-types. As such, parts of the novel describe "stalkers" retrieving these artifacts from the dump-zones (this book was used as inspiration for the STALKER games). These artifacts are quite similar in nature to many of the things here on the Foundation.
I've met some folks over at the chat already. As for everyone else, I'm looking forward to reading your SCPs and considering your comments on my own work. A good-day to you!
