Re: Clever Bot

As for an experiment: when chatbots collide. I started out with Chatbot and Cleverbot, but then Cleverbot got stuck on a question. So I replaced him with Alan . I did this until Chatbot forgot his name... 'Chatbot' is Chatbot, 'you' is Alan. Chatbot: Hello there! What's on your ...

Turns out fucking with peoples' computers isn't that funny.

I had a wireless router, and since the school didn't provide wireless to the dorms, I gave him the info figuring it wasn't a big deal if he used it. We were both pretty decent with computers, but while he's...
