Honestly I've rarely seen such a neat and powerful language.

How many languages have you seen?
How many languages have you been using for more than five years?

Using Nodejs REPL from inside Racket:
Code: [Select]
> (define-values (p out in err)
    (subprocess #f #f #f "C:/Hangar/nodejs/node.exe"))
> (display "console.log('hello from node');" in)
> (close-output-port in)
> (read-line out)
"hello from node"

You might find the "Recent Unread Topics" link up the top near your avatar useful.

Typically if you fix one thing, you break something else  :idiot2:

General Chatbots and Software / Re: Is there a "real time" chatbot engine?
« Last post by Don Patrick on June 28, 2017, 07:11:09 pm »
Lots of bots have internal spelling routines but grammar usage often escapes the best of intentions.
This is because many chatbots use an "insert what the user said here" approach, taking the text out of context.
Constructing replies from subject-verb-object facts is something I do, but is very difficult not only because of the complex underlying mechanisms, but also because the English language is very inconsistent. Irregular verbs and plurals are but the easiest exceptions to name. Idiomatic phrases are far worse, and vary per verb. In my case a lot of the imperfections can be attributed to the fact that refining pronounciation only comes after understanding semantics and thinking about knowledge in a sensible manner, two phases that are ten times more difficult. Making conversation is a whole other ball game that may involve more psychology than language skills.

I am not convinced that grammar is a great obstacle. Rather that the "insert snippet here" approach makes it clear that the chatbot doesn't get what you said, which may put one off. For staying on topic, people have various solutions. One is to have a list of keywords relating to a topic and marking that topic as active when keywords match, preferring responses that touch on that topic. Another is topic extraction such as is used in document summarisation. Once you know the topic, you could do such things as scout the web for interesting things to say about that topic, at whichever time the bot thinks it appropriate to suggest them. I would consider this a luxury function.

Cortana, by the way, doesn't do much of anything in terms of conversation. "she" will however occasionally nag you with pop-up messages to suggest some or other commercial function, or news bulletins. The timing at which this is done may be by monitoring your computer activity, or it may not.

Ok I logged in for 1 minute…

I know I’m being picky but… on a long thread having to scroll right to the top (I do see the goto top icon) and then having to scroll all the way back down to where you want to post… well it hurts my wheel mouse finger.  Perhaps a logon at the bottom or next to the print icons... or... a goto bottom icon at the top may be? lol.

I went to reply after 1 minute and it took me to the logon screen. Cool... working fine.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

We were all thinking that weren't we!

On my laptop. Uhm...what happened to the side bar with the latest posts....man do I use that....its the life of the forum - I basically never look through the threads, instead I usually keep updated on most posts by using the bar.

Oh there yous are, right below this post...found the bar.

Don't forget - you can always click n drag the scroll bar, or right click where you want and goto, or use a touch screen hehe. Or teleportation/timetravel/levitation.

 if it analyzes 0.25 of the image at a time with the times 3 speed up algorithm it runs 12 times faster which is under a second for images 2500 over 1500 pixels with a medium computer that 2017 has to offer.
