RIP, Daily Joke

Audtra

Audtra's optional, daily joke at 4a has been retired. It served as a silent reminder by wake-up time to record a daily experience, through comedy, dream wordplay, a (finally useful) well-rounded, Great Books/non-Western humanities education, and historical events. With the pivot to officially support all use-cases including Alzheimer's, mental illness, development disability, and drug studies, a scientific researcher's feedback, the feature's inability to perpetuate automatically and self-sustain operations in an environmental disaster, illness, or other human-barring scenarios, time inefficiency of perpetual copywriting, cost inefficiency of hiring non-engineering humans, and 50% disabling rate, the logical, executive decision was to remove the feature.
