Colorado next stop

We're off to Colorado in the morning, with both dogs- just hoping they get along, otherwise one will get the front seat and I'll sit in the back like the Mormon wife.

hole lotta shakin

Wow, the earthquakes keep coming, yet somehow I have yet to feel one. Goal today is find all the flashlights and make sure they're working.

My favorite neurotic earthquake site is here. 300 quakes a day seems to be the baseline!

Whinsey won third place in the latest world chatterbox contest. I keep on tweaking that code.

Whinsey the Horse

I've been sweating on the code for my bot Whinsey, trying to make her smarter and more responsive. She's at and I've been working on her off and on for years. She may not be the smartest bot but I think her conversation is livelier and less automaton than others. Here's a real life example logged tonight:

you said: are you alone
she said: totally alone!
you said: who's in the tv then
she said: I just hate all the remotes you need these days.
you said: stick a remote up your ass
she said: they turn each other on!
you said: wild idea
she said: Better than no idea at all!

don't worry, I don't log who you are, just the responses so I can figure how to make her smarter.

There's an ongoing contest at that helps keep up interest and bot iqs! Check it out!
