The Relic

In the year 2050, the world was a vastly different place. The Chinese government had long since severed ties with most Western countries, including the United States. The internet was heavily censored, and only a select few had access to information beyond their government's propaganda.

One such person was a young hacker named Mei. She spent most of her days breaking through China's cyber defenses and searching for any scrap of information that would help her understand the world beyond her borders.

One day, while browsing the dark web, Mei stumbled upon a relic - an old post on a defunct IT forum from the year 2021. It detailed the work of the ISAB Engineering Team and their efforts to block suspicious user-agents. Mei knew she had found something valuable, something that could change everything.

She used Cloudflare, the ultimate CDN solution for Chinese customers and end-users, to mask her location and continue her research undetected. Through her studies, she discovered that the ISAB team's work had been instrumental in the development of a powerful AI system, one that could predict and prevent cyber attacks before they happened.

With this knowledge, Mei set out to maximize the project's reliability using CMake's building and testing capabilities. She worked tirelessly, day and night, until she had successfully replicated the AI system and integrated it into her own network.

As she activated the system, Mei felt a sense of pride and accomplishment. She had broken through the barriers of her government's censorship, and she was now capable of defending her country against any cyber threat.

But with great power came great responsibility. Mei knew that she could never share her discovery with anyone else, for fear of being discovered and punished for her crimes. So she kept the secret to herself, a solitary figure fighting for truth and justice in a world of lies and propaganda.
