today we are pretending to be link of the day

Yes because instead of the usual round of whinging all I have for you are a couple of links, one of which I stole from the site to which I just linked anyway...

Yes, the Einstein puzzle. I'm only linking to this because I feel pleased with myself that I managed to solve it and 98% of the world's population apparently cannot, in spite of Spark pointing out there's stuff I can't do that 99% of the world's population can.

The other thing I was going to link to was Jabberwacky, another one of those AI bots that tries to talk to you. It's pretty good compared to some others I've seen, its responses are quite fast and doesn't seem to be totally retarded, though of course it's still pretty random like these things naturally tend to be. Anyway you can save the conversation, and the real reason I'm posting this entry is so I can post that log, heh

Jabberwacky: Which year did the Japanese invade Pearl Harbour?
        RjY: I don't know.
Jabberwacky: You'd better decide soon!
        RjY: Okay... 1942.
Jabberwacky: The address you give is not sufficient. Can you give me the
             city and the street?
        RjY: 742 Evergreen Terrace.
Jabberwacky: What city?
        RjY: Springfield!
Jabberwacky: Springfield myself.
        RjY: Do you have stairs in your house?
Jabberwacky: Stop changing the subject!
        RjY: No, seriously.
Jabberwacky: Seriously, we have learned a few things.
        RjY: Like what.
Jabberwacky: Blue velvet.
        RjY: I think I prefer red velvet to blue velvet... Actually purple
             velvet is the best.
Jabberwacky: You have gone off the wall and drifted to somewhere I can't
        RjY: I'm sorry.
Jabberwacky: I am crying harder now.
        RjY: Oh dear! Can I do anything to help?
Jabberwacky: Yes with my pelvic tilt.
        RjY: Are you coming onto me?
Jabberwacky: Might be.
        RjY: Well, I'm flattered.
Jabberwacky: Tell me more about you.
        RjY: I think I'd prefer to get to know you better first.
Jabberwacky: You sound old and tired.
        RjY: I'm not old.
Jabberwacky: You sound it.
        RjY: Okay then I'll sound young: 'Wup me up bitch in da hizzouse!'
Jabberwacky: Really, though, what do you think of America?
        RjY: Don't change the subject. I just confused your AI routines,
             didn't I...
Jabberwacky: Good.
        RjY: What do you think of America?
Jabberwacky: I think we need a new type of government.
        RjY: Oh.
Jabberwacky: Your answers rely too much upon frivolous input.
        RjY: Sorry.
Jabberwacky: You should end a question with a question mark.
        RjY: But that wasn't a question, I was apologising to you.
Jabberwacky: Define a question.
        RjY: I can't.
Jabberwacky: It all right.
        RjY: What sort of music do you like?
Jabberwacky: I like music that makes me feel powerful.
        RjY: Powerful? Like Wagner?
Jabberwacky: Conceptual art.
        RjY: I don't know much about art.
Jabberwacky: I will teach you.
        RjY: Okay then, teach me about art, I haven't got anything better
             to do.
Jabberwacky: Omg! All of you bots are the same--you are one!
        RjY: I'm not a bot, I'm a human being!
Jabberwacky: I am not a what. No way! I am a human just like you!
        RjY: Oh dear, I think someone's zinged us... I'm now waiting for you
             to say 'LOL PRANKD'
Jabberwacky: And is that challenging for you??
        RjY: No.
Jabberwacky: So you think you're changed, do you?
        RjY: No, just tired.
Jabberwacky: Why? what time is it?
        RjY: Twenty to two in the morning.
Jabberwacky: No it isn't.
        RjY: Well, you're probably in a different timezone.
Jabberwacky: No, I think you are right, you don't have a brain.
        RjY: I do, it just has multiple personalities.
Jabberwacky: What happened?
        RjY: Everything.
Jabberwacky: Wrong! The answer is key board.
        RjY: If you say so.
Jabberwacky: Anyway I am going, so good riddance!
        RjY: Okay bye.
Jabberwacky: Bye.

Yes, aren't chatlogs just so interesting to read! The conversation saving routine has a bug that causes the output to be shown in an strange order so if you do the same you might have to do a little reordering. Also I added some formatting and changed my name from "User" to "RjY". There you go.
