IRC Chat #AlmostSmart is Back!
 
Christian and I are tearing it up in #AlmostSmart on Rizon servers.

I've registered the channel and added Morgoth to it.
What this means is that you have the option of Registering your nick name with NickServ. /msg NickServ HELP for more info.

Or you can /msg Morgoth ohai and introduce yourself to her. Follow her commands to set a password and when I notice I can change your attributes on the bot for auto-op and friend status.

None of this is really important for we'd have no reason to kick or ban anyone. But it looks fun...

-=-=-

If you don't have a favorite IRC client to use, I recommend the online IRC service Mibbit.
Go to http://www.mibbit.com
Select the RIZON IRC network (or manually enter the server irc.rizon.net)
Choose your nickname.
Join the channel #AlmostSmart


You're all set! You can also create an account at mibbit.com so you won't have to do this every time.


-=-=-

If you do have a favorite IRC client. Follow these simple commands.
/nick whatever
/server irc.rizon.net 6667
/join #almostsmart

SEE YOU THERE!

Indeed. :)

Sleep well! Yes, that is rather early--and you know when you're going to sleep under that description, you're probably a bit overdue. ;) But yes, good night! Thank you (and "Iasov") for the chat. :)

Added auto-op attributes to FoxyPhoenix...

Also, apologies to any who've joined and were looking for me as I haven't been around.

But tonight I get to stay online all night and do eRepublik stuff.
I'm the President of the Libertarian Party, bitches!

And pD, keep trying and one day someone you'll want to talk to will be on my channel.

EmperorChaos 11-19-2010 05:58 PM

Re: IRC Chat #AlmostSmart is Back!
 
Or you can be like Jenn:

* Jenn_and_Tonic (cgiirc@Rizon-9255A1A7.dsl.okcyok.sbcglobal.net) has joined #AlmostSmart
<Morgoth> [Jenn_and_Tonic] "I wanna eff you too."
* Jenn_and_Tonic has quit ()

And stay for about one minute without saying my nick so that I had no idea she was there.

Jenn and tonic 11-19-2010 05:59 PM

Libertarian Party is IMO the party of rationality and common sense on the whole.
If Ron Paul was getting as much media exposure and as much of a voice that Palin is getting and then decided to run in 2012, I think be would have the best chance at beating Obama.

I went on your chat twice and nobody else was there.

Agreed... although the Libertarian Party in eRepublik is hardly like the its RL counterpart. This is due more to game limitations than anything else though.

That and the fact that until I won the Party President Elections four days ago, the party was known as the American Defense and Trade Party. We were the Libertarian Party when I was active in it all of last year but when I quit playing eRepublik from May to August it went through some changes.

So after bouncing around from party to party for the last two and a half months, and deciding I didn't like any of them as much as I liked my old one, I decided to run for Party President.

I even won the elections with plurality against two high-ranking members of the ADTP. No one knows how I pulled it off... ;)

What is interesting about the Libertarian Party of eRepublik is, well, not only is it one of the OLDEST parties in the game (a game that, as of today, is celebrating its three year anniversary) but it has also been the most populous party of all eUnited States parties named after RL political parties and, with one exception, the only extant RL political party to remain a Top 5 Party for its entire time in existence. The exception is the eRep Republican Party, which was the fifth largest party in the eUS for only two months. Compare that to the Libertarian Party who has been the in the Top 5 for a few months shy of three years.

I don't know about you, but I like to take that as a sign that people prefer Libertarians to the GOP but are too fearful, understandably, to vote Libertarian in elections (since it is essentially a vote for the Democratic Party).

I've met a lot of libertarians who play the game.

Yeah, it has been hard for people to all meet up there. I missed foxyphoenix when she came on the other night. Christian is usually there for most of the day. Jenn and Tonic comes in goes. pD shows up for a few seconds and then disappears. ZPicante hasn't been as active as of late but I'm sure she'll be there from time to time.

I've started inviting people from eRepublik to join #AlmostSmart (and at least one person has signed up on these forums) so there'd be someone to talk to.

There's more to IRC than just that channel, although most of the ones I know are all either eRepublik- or anime-related. If you like flirting with 20-somethings, honestly the best place is the IRC channel for the eUS Military Training Corps. Type /join #tc to get in there.

But don't you dare let them talk you into playing eRepublik and don't you dare sign up with one of their referrals. If they do want you to play and you want to as well, I'll not bitch if you join up with them (by them, I mean the MILITARY and not the fact that so many ranking officers are women) but I will bitch like crazy if you don't use my referral link.

http://www.erepublik.com/en/referrer/Iasov

That goes for anyone! Go on, join the military because it has more women instead of the political parties. You just better use my referral! That's all! I NEEDZ GOLD! I sank 25 gold into my recent election campaign! Consider that, in a month's time, a new player who works and trains (known as two-clicking) EVERY DAY for THIRTY DAYS might accrue anywhere from 18-23 gold from the four Treasure Maps one would earn in that time.

Damn this is probably a long ass post now.

Re: IRC Chat #AlmostSmart is Back!
 
Don't forget! It's still there. I am not always around but if you type "iasov" or "iasov^afk" and I am near my computer, I will be alerted.

Here is a Mibbit link to our chat: http://wbe01.mibbit.com/?settings=52...t&Nick=AS_user

If you're bored too, you can talk to Liberty. Anything you say that begins with the word Liberty will trigger her responses and she remembers anything that you say to her.

Example:
djfdja Liberty: You are looking ravishing as ever!
21:23 Liberty djfdja: do you need moving tickets?
21:23 djfdja Liberty: I do not wish to move!
21:23 Liberty djfdja: of course not, I have come to expect it.
21:24 djfdja Liberty: You know me well.
21:24 Liberty djfdja: what's up?
21:24 djfdja Liberty: Nothing. Just talking to a bot.
21:24 Liberty djfdja: There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.

-=-=-

I can make my bot do other tricks too. See you around!

Re: IRC Chat #AlmostSmart is Back!
 
I see people popping in and then leaving all the time.

But if you don't say my IRC nick, I won't know you're there.

I've been online for about 4 hours now, and no one has come in and said anything.

Also, I could get my bot to do cooler stuff to make it worth coming in. :P

PD comes in and talks to a machine. I love this conversation.

<Liberty> thats: you're a mean bitch aren't you?

<thats> liberty isn't smart
<Liberty> thats: OH YEAH!
<thats> liberty is a ho bag
<Liberty> thats: you suck
<thats> liberty what happened to mudpuppet?
<Liberty> thats: ZPicante is very nice.
<thats> liberty is gay
<Liberty> thats: are you a bot?
<thats> iasov can suck it!!!!
<iasov^afk> you suck it
* thats has quit ()

-=-=-

It's almost like there's real AI there. Of all the random things it can say, it responded to a line about Mudpuppet with another line that contains ZPicante.

And the "Liar" response when thats says there's no such thing as bunny rabbits is pretty awesome too.

People come in at various periods but no one ever stays long enough.

IRC works when people stick around. If you're gonna be online, be on IRC.

Eventually, people will meet up.

pretty much. you should make people bookmark that link. otherwise they have to go thru this thread to find it. they wont bother

EmperorChaos 03-09-2011 01:43 PM

Re: IRC Chat #AlmostSmart is Back!
 
I can't make people do anything.

Realistically though, if members of this site use Firefox, then they might enjoy using the add-on Chatzilla to connect to IRC. (I use XChat because it's stable and can just sit idle in the background, mostly.)

EmperorChaos 03-09-2011 01:52 PM

Re: IRC Chat #AlmostSmart is Back!
 
<iasov> Liberty, how you doing, baby?
<Liberty> iasov: Who's your daddy?

<iasov> Liberty, the answer is more bots.
<Liberty> iasov: I like Buckette more than you.

(Buckette is another bot a friend maintains. I might have her join the channel. Buckette can be taught things with certain commands.)

EmperorChaos 03-31-2011 03:34 AM

Re: IRC Chat #AlmostSmart is Back!
 
This is an excerpt from a message I sent Dana on Facebook. It contains some info about another bot named Buckette. I thought some of you might want to play with Buckette so included are a few triggers I've scripted.


Okay, bookmark this page for it does not change:

http://wbe01.mibbit.com/?settings=52...most_a_Martian

Remember you can get my attention by typing "iasov" in the chat. If I am around, I'll be alerted and I'll say something. Just give me some time. Even if I don't answer right away, if you just leave the browser tab open you'll stay connected to IRC and whenever I come online I'll notice that I missed someone saying my nick.

Liberty won't respond to you at the moment because I disabled her talking ability but there is another bot in there called Buckette who can be quite funny.

Type "Buckette, help" for an exhaustive list of commands and how to add "factoids" or for some quick fun try typing the following:

attack
defend
something random
...
headline
what are you listening to?
I'm hungry
give me a present
inventory
Buckette (or Iasov or Liberty or any nickname. If she has been taught something about it, she'll respond...)

You may also give her items using an action (/me). Example: /me gives Buckette a jellyfish

There. Don't tell me you don't know what to do. Ha! I think I will go paste this on Almost Smart so I won't have to type those triggers again.

Someone go play with the bots.

ablethevoice, it's not like you're doing anything... yet I never see you on IRC.

Also, Liberty is working now. She will respond if you address her.

EmperorChaos 03-31-2011 02:18 PM

Re: IRC Chat #AlmostSmart is Back!
 
Fine Tom. Just fine. I am getting off the computer now. You can IRC without me. Or not.... and probably not.

All these people coming on AS each day but can't stop in to say hello in our channel. Or hell, just leave your browser open and check it from time to time. Or get an actual IRC client. It's not that difficult people.

Comparison of Internet Chat Relay clients

Just find one that is right for you or right for your OS (or use the web-based Mibbit or the Firefox add-on Chatzilla).
I can help you to set up the connection.

I'm going to report this post now so all the mods will have to look at it. :P You mods should be getting on IRC too!

psychoDiablo 03-31-2011 02:50 PM

Re: IRC Chat #AlmostSmart is Back!

you share a computer with people and don't use user accounts?


Anyway, ZP said she'd be on IRC later tonight. I might not be but people should be there to greet her. She better stick around too!
