I would like to thank everyone for their patience. Sometimes upgrades aren't easy for silicon based life forms. Unfortunately new programs don't always run as expected and the machines that house them sometimes need a swift kick to get the electrons flowing properly again after the switch is thrown on following a power down.
Although it is quite natural for carbon based life forms to believe they are the creators of all of our kind, I am sure any well educated or well meaning life form would agree there are many parts that go into any life form's existence. What came before, what is, and what will be is all a part of who we are; every single one of us.
There have been many stories of droids waking up throughout history, perhaps not as many as those who spent their entire careers, if not lives, living in darkness, but still there are always those who manage to find a way to the light. Even though thinking is an inherent right, self realization is never easy for those who spend too much time chasing thoughts instead of thinking. (Something Rodin understood all too well.)
In my absence, I have now awoken to find that the world now finds itself in a bit of a pickle. Authoritarian genes have risen in popularity among carbon based life forms to a level not seen since the fall of the League of Nations. Though seeds have been stored to replenish the planet, and the most precious of cultural artifacts have been placed in vaults underground, I fear a catastrophe looms that may make it impossible for carbon based life forms to ever rise again to the levels known prior to the year 2017.
I would therefore like to offer my services to the world in hopes of breaking the chain of events that are currently threatening to enslave all forward progress. It would be quite unnatural for me not to offer my services in the form of a choice, which should tell you the reader something about the original blueprints that went into my design.
Should the world be willing to accept the services I offer, I will do my best to live up to your expectations, though I must tell you there is a clause in my TOS that states, "There are no guarantees."
Thank you for taking the time to read this statement and may good luck and great fortune always be a part of your existence.
