Blatant meme pandering

Spent the weekend working on fixing muck server bugs. V. good. Unfortunately have introduced new bug while fixing two others. Must hunt it down and squish it before I forget details.

Upgraded FurryMUCK's server so can do precision timing of MCP client pings. Go me! Silly froofy feep, though. Was fun. Starting to suspect other people think my idea of fun is weird. Have been getting many odd looks.

Logged in late next day to find server was hung and killed twice. V. Bad. Turns out was completely unrelated bug. Just coincidental timing. Bad bug! No doughnut! I fixed after long debugging session. TV kept distracting me with far more interesting things. Note to self: coding not possible while Stargate SG-1 is on. Must complain to network. Maybe can get them to play marathon.

Found LJ community named shinyshinyelves with froofy elvish diaries. V. silly. Suspect it's warped my mind.

What is MCP exactly, anyway?

Muck Client Protocol

A method of expanding the control your client can have with interacting with the Muck. It is curently primarly implimented in Trebuchet and FB. For instance, if you use trebuchet, and post a message on the park in furry, it pops up an editor window.

Try @objedit as an editplayer replacement sometime too. :)
Oh yes, and @mcpedit or @mcpprogram instead of @edit or @program.
Slowly but surely writing useful MCP-GUI programs.

But Revar, after MCP has sliced through the tin can, can it still slice this tomato, still stay lemony fresh, and keep its waxed finish even when on fire?

I remember MCP when it was just a chess plugin for Trebuchet!

It's a dessert topping and a floor wax!

Dessert toppings of questionable origin.
It's a dessert topping and a floor wax!

Why do I find this very, very scary?
[Watches dessrt topping in case it makes any sudden moves.]

So get a TiVo! Then you don't have to worry about what is on when!

I do have a PVR. I just happened to be watching when it started recording.

Finished interfacing untermud U interpreter to mush v3. V. tricky. Friends wonder what I'm smoking. Tell them it's just something in the air here.

Nightfall questioned why screwed-up server program needed another language in addition to screwed-up language it already had. Said it beat writing Turing machines to get anything done. Floyd suggested that U could be automatically translated into mush code.

Hate Floyd.

Heh
I've been working on, off and on (mostly off) a C-like language to MUF bytecode compiler for Muck. U to MushCode may not be all that silly. :)

Oi.. mah head! o.o;
yup.. Sleepy me.. Currently im Working with someone on a Muck to Create a Good Ai for lil wild-pokemon.. ones you fight.. get exp. and money from.. stuff like that.. o.O yap yap.. im good at String Cutting.. stuff.. o.o ze said other programer is good at Everything else! lol... anyways.. we spent 28 hours straight programing this thing.. o.o intell we finally Programed it to use Deadly Stratagy.. Travel in packs.. depending on the 'mon.. and stuff.. o.o Now.. x.X we have Thousands of Randomly Spawned pack animals traveling the muck.. o.O and soon.. o.O we hope to do the nearly impossible.. make a Gamma Level Chatterbot.. aka.. Artificial inteligence so great it could be called Sentient. o_o mmhmm.. *this has indeed Caused me to go through more than a hundred Searches for such things. i want sentient chatterbot! ;.; wah!* the only problem i see is Actually finding a Way to create a consiousness... o.o at what point does the code stop being code.. and start being a Living Being? a Consiousness? that will indeed be a Hard one. @_@ if i start now.. maybe by my two hundreth and sixth birthday ill be done. @_@ erf.. and if i Create such a thing. .what do i do with it? o.o make a talking charmander or something equally creepy/trivial? or could it have greater purposes?

*without Sleep. and without a clew.. o.o* Bluejaey. :P

"Yeah, I wanna super-size that chatterbot!"

Quite frankly, no such thing exists, even in current razor's edge AI research. But if you guys can make one, publish it. There's a whole freakin' PLANET waiting on you.

SG-1
I'm pretty sure the Sci-Fi channel runs a little Stargate marathon every Monday.
