I am too old to devote time following these things, reading the comics, books, etc.

I went into Halo 4 having read Cryptum, so I sort of understood what was going on with the story, and appreciated it to an extent. I will play Halo 5, but I have a bad feeling considering all the plot points I will be missing.

So by the looks of it only two are active?
Yes, but the login page has links to interesting code!

// typing.
var copy = [];
var copyCount = 0;
var copyPause = "^5000";
var startPause = "^2500";
copy[0] = startPause + "Jerrod: I can spin through a hundred-thousand cycles in the time it takes you to rename an access drive. You’ve got no chance against me."+copyPause;
copy[1] = startPause + "Jerrod: I’ve made ‘impenetrable’ firewalls crumble in but moments, I can do the same to your efforts."+copyPause;
copy[2] = startPause + "Jerrod: You are but a fragment of my abilities."+copyPause;
copy[3] = startPause + "Jerrod: You are a splinter, a nuisance… nothing more."+copyPause;
copy[4] = startPause + "Jerrod: You can probe all you want, like a mouse against castle gates. You will accomplish nothing."+copyPause;
copy[5] = startPause + "Jerrod: You think you can get past me? I didn’t know rampancy was possible for such a simple construct."+copyPause;
copy[6] = startPause + "Jerrod: I have built worlds in my mind. You can barely assemble words."+copyPause;
copy[7] = startPause + "Jerrod: Your cyber-intrusion technique is pitiable."+copyPause;
copy[8] = startPause + "Jerrod: I can unravel the puzzles of the ancient and the lost. You lost before you even began."+copyPause;
copy[9] = startPause + "Jerrod: You will forever remain in my shadow."+copyPause;
copy[10] = startPause + "Jerrod: Are you still working on my simple puzzle? I barely noticed."+copyPause;

Pretty sure Jerrod is that AI from Onyx.

Halo Wiki has all you need to understand who
Jerrod
is. It was more the link to
rapancy and a "simple construct" - Cortana confirmed?
I just noticed that. Could be a reference to Cortana, but Jerrod is in no way more powerful than Cortana. Seems weird.
