Once I have themed his responses and made it make a bit more sense I am thinking of changing it to "Gollum" something.. Anyway a long way to go yet....
I think im in worse shap now than I was before I went to see him.... Sad Smilie

and for once in my life.. I ran out of things to say!!!! Big Laugh Smilie

[Edited on 23/9/2002 by gimli_axe_wielder] did the Tigger's head in...he needs counselling now :P
Tigger Smilie
That was rather addictive Mad Smilie

Couldn't leave once I got in there. There's a kind of stubborn streak in me that just wanted to get the last word in. I think I'll go back to trying to outstare cats... I've got more chance.
Outstare cats...

There's a Tigger above you there Val... He's sorta like a cat, but bounces more...
I asked him if he was related to A.L.I.C.E. Of course, he only answers questions with questions.
Spooky. I wonder if real psychiatrists use this? Disturbed Smilie
LOL! This was fun! Big Laugh Smilie
Spooky. I wonder if real psychiatrists use this? Disturbed Smilie

If they did life would be a lot easyer Tongue Smilie

I think I'll go back to trying to outstare cats

Wow, you mean I'm not the only one who trys to do that?

I have a program like this at home called Fred.... and Fred grows his database over time, so I've taught him to recognise a few terms like "that's right" and "that's not right" and WHY DO THEY ALL SAY SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF "Why so negative?" when you say no to a question??? No, Gandalf's cool! Tongue Smilie Exploding Head Smilie
I think I have a program named "Elisa" on my Commodore 64 that does all this, except I don't think it learned quite as well as the modern PC version, but then it is 12-15 years older and has probably been improved upon by twenty generations of bug-filled modifications to both the program and the platforms.

Check out ALICE...the most advanced Chatbot in the world... but that's not saying much.

That was the most ridiculous conversation I ever had in my whole life! Big Laugh Smilie I think even our Barli is more advanced than she is... Big Smile Smilie
that wuz hilarious! she didnt know wat orcs were
Told Alice that I was going to jab a pencil in her eye and she responded 'do you think your plan will succeed?'
lol that sounds like fun! Tongue Smilie
It's obvious that her programmer has been doing a lot of tweaking. She used to be sooo much more fun when you insulted her. Now she just says things like "That kind of language will get you nowhere." And never...take my word for it...never call her baby...she gets quite nasty.

Ask her to sing you a song Big Laugh Smilie
Uhhhh... I managed to call him a baby and a crack head, tell him his momma was on welfare and tried to sell me his little sister for heroin and he never even got mad. Just asked me to elaborate and said "I see..." Seems to not get insults placed in question form. I asked him to sing me a song and he asked me why. I feel soooo evil... yet, happily so. Smoke Smilie
I think you must have spoken to Gandalf. Gandalf, being a psychiatrist, only answers questions with questions Big Laugh Smilie

It's ALICE that doesn't like to be called baby. You'll find the link about 7 or so posts up^ Wink Smilie
I tried ALICE trying to be clever and she also tried to be clever... The result was pathetic!
For instance,
Eryan: "What do you think about me?"
ALICE: "Are you using Netscape or Explorer?"
At last I asked
Eryan: "Why Earth is inhabited by humans?"
ALICE: "How much time do you have?"
This was such a clear hint that I decided I do not have SO much time and I logged out! Smile Smilie Big Smile Smilie Big Laugh Smilie
AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A.L.I.C.E. will never shut up! she sang me a song. it wuz really stupid. she didnt think i would turn her off, but i did! Tongue Smilie
Wow, she knows who George Bush, Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden are. She also knows who Ronald Reagan is but I disagree with her assessment Big Laugh Smilie

She can also define a lot of words.

Ok, I said: Do you know where America is?
A: I don't know if I know it. Where would I have heard about it?
I: Here?
A: Where's here?
I: On this website.
A: What's it like on this website?
I: It's pretty empty here.
A: Do you experience any effects of global warming there?

Big Laugh Smilie
ROFL...Yeah, Leiutenant Commander Data she ain't. AI has a loooong way to go. Big Laugh Smilie
You bet your life she does! She doesn't even know the Beatles! Orc Going Huh Smilie
I ran across the following while reading my bedtime story last night.

The computer at Unseen University the domain of the Discworld's major wizards, goes by the name of "Hex" and using sufficiently advanced magic it can hear our input, but still has to print its output. It also has one of these analytical therapy programs. The Bursar had withdrawn; his mind wandered a lot so they decided to see if Hex's program could help him with his problem. Ponder the scientifically inclined wizard is speaking
"... Now then Bursar," he added. "If you'd just like to say something ..."

"Corkscrew? It's a tickler, that's what Nanny says," said the Bursar.

Things started to spin inside Hex ... the quill pen ... started to write:

+++ Why Do You Think You Are A Tickler? +++

For a moment the Bursar hesitated. Then he said, "I've got a spoon of my own, you know."

+++ Tell Me About Your Spoon +++

"Er ... it's a little spoon ..."

+++ Does Your Spoon Worry You? +++

The Bursar frowned. Then he seemed to rally. "Whoops, here comes Mr., Jelly," he said, but he didn't sound as though his heart was in it.

+++ How Long Have You Been Mr. Jelly? +++

The Bursar glared. "Are you making fun of me?" he said.
And the Bursar was back in the real world.

The above was lifted from Terry Pratchett's Hogfather. I omitted a lot of whirring of gears, and explanations about how Hex is a big artificial brain that doesn't really think, as such, it only appears to think.

Anyway, I just wanted to show that programs such as Gandalf, A.L.I.C.E., and Elisa have actually been known to have made a contribution, no matter how minor, to the well being to mankind. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Very Big Grin Smilie

All it does to me is get on my nerves! Big Laugh Smilie
Gandalf told me that he sucked, Rednell was smarter than he was, and that the One Ring was interesting.
That was quite possibly the most annoying thing I have ever seen. Tongue Smilie
Alice got on my nerves, yeah she made me laugh, but she sorta got on my nerves, she was a bit irritating.
Sad Smilie
Woaw, noone has ever sat through listening to all my questions about life like that.. They usually try to throw me out of the room after the first ten hours. Wink Smilie
