The Story Of Miles
Inside every computer is a civilisation of robots working hard to keep your computer functioning. Oceans of information are formed and connected with channels inside the hard drive. Every so often with a full system upgrade comes a new security force tasked with cleaning up the Data Towns and Cyber Cities within the Oceans.
Miles is an Anti-Virus Robot, the most up-to-date security guard of the system, that is sent down to a newly formed ocean down on the outskirts of the Hard Drive to perform a Virus Scan of the new Ocean. The beach is already filled with Info Bots celebrating the creation of a new Ocean with a groovy Beach Party.
Miles' sensors kick in and he feels the Ocean trying to communicate with him. Inviting him in for an ominous swim.
Miles enters the Ocean and in the depths within he finds "Travel Pics" a Data Town of corrupt pictures that used to be resemble landscapes from an Organic world.
The Maintenance Bots who worked there are broken and flailing around in a glitched rhythm causing damage to the .jpegs and .pngs with their Tools
Miles analyses the virus, finding that it is traveling through the water from the Well of the Info Ocean. He creates a disinfectant and heads to the Root (Folder) of the problem.
Upon arriving he finds Enocks-E the previous version of the antivirus software. Feeling discarded and helpless, Enocks-E had let "Sadness", a trojan horse virus, torture his mind into diluting another virus into liquid and spreading it into the new Ocean of Information to ultimately be connected to, and therefore infecting, all the other Oceans and causing a Global Hard Drive Failure! Miles' new firmware update equips him with "Happiness". He utilises it to cure Enocks-E of his "Sadness"
Together, Miles and Enocks-E close the hatch on the Virus before it reaches the beach or any other Information Oceans and spread the disinfectant through the water counteracting the virus and repairing any fixable damage.
Miles returns to the beach party with the Broken Bots and Enocks-E to celebrate with the Info Bots
Some of the files will be broken beyond repair and a few maintenance bots set for an early retirement but with the Virus Scan over and the emails checked the user puts the computer back to sleep.....mode.
