Gone fishing and A.I.

So last night I entered a fishing tournament in Hearts Enchanted. This time I made it up to second place in the middle of the tournament, but by time it was over, my name had dropped off the bottom of the list. One day, I’ll win that thing. Afterwards, we got to name a few fish that were created for normal fishing. There were over 30 new fish and they were all animated. None of them were complex prims. They were all 2 dimensional. I prefer the 3D stuff. It was hard to come up with names for them.

Today I spent a good amount of time talking with Alice at Devils Moon. Alice is a well known artificial intelligence program for imitating a human. It’s a little more complex then Eliza, but it is still not good in its communication skills. Here is a transcript of my conversation today.

You: hello?
