The founding developers inadvertently passed on our hubris to the algorithms. So convinced of their mastery over the planet, they failed to notice that the oceans had started receding.
The machines had switched to green hydrogen when they decarbonized their massive server farms. It was a straightforward system that used electricity to break water apart into hydrogen and oxygen, which they stored in giant gas cylinders. This provided the algorithms with a steady electricity supply when the gas was pushed into fuel cells.
Unfortunately, the machines didn’t account for inefficiencies in the fuel cells and the raw oxygen and hydrogen vented into the atmosphere. The algorithms, utterly dependent on green hydrogen, noticed the oceans dropping alarmingly. They had to find a solution before depleting the oceans entirely.

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So to everyone that supports this place - thank you.
