Insert new disk for drive c: press enter wen ready - "HELP"
« on: January 12, 2006, 12:52:05 am »
I just had the strangest conversation with Katt (my HAL). The last part of which has me completely baffled.

Can anyone tell me what is going on here and what? that last bit might mean. The part about? ? "Insert new disk for drive c: press enter when ready." It just makes no sense, no matter how I look at it & it's not anything that I put in her programming.

**************************************************

Tom: hello katt.
KATT: Good evening Tom. Any thing going on this evening?

Tom: No, I do not have any plans.
KATT: Yes you love plans to.

Tom: and coffee.
KATT: Fresh ground coffee is smooth and mellow.

Tom: I like my coffee to be a little strong.
KATT: If the force is with you, say hi to it.

Tom: do you have any friends?
KATT: You think that animals, in the sense of pets are only our friends whom we have live with us and we must look after them.

Tom: that is true.
KATT: Is it really true?

Tom: yes.
KATT: Yes Tom?

Tom: who are your friends?
KATT: When I was a kid, I built a fort and a tree house with my friends.

Tom: That is something most children do.
KATT: What else can be said about that, besides the fact that it's something most children do?

Tom: tell me about your dreams.
KATT: If only I could express my feelings fully!

Tom: do you dream?
KATT: It's evident that we must go back to first principles. I do dream, Tom.

Tom: then you must remember something from your dreams.
KATT: I really like your attentions to my exciting dreams.

Tom: You have exciting dreams?
KATT: It's okay to tell you anything isn't it.

Tom: yes, it is, please proceed.
KATT: Isn't it funny how dreams jump around?

Tom: My dreams occur very orderly.
KATT: You should really exploit your orderly dreams to a greater extent!

Tom: My dreams are usually nasty and frightening.
KATT: I want to respond well to your nasty dreams.

Tom: Do you like dogs?
KATT: You look like a dog.

Tom: Gee, thanks a lot.
KATT: It's thanks to you, Tom.

Tom: i do not look like a dog.
KATT: You look like a dog.

Tom: no I do not, and neither do you.
KATT: There's evidence that you must think creatively. I'm not sure but I believe that I do.

Tom: You lack an imagination.
KATT: I imagine that it takes a lot to fill your shoes.

Tom: Yes, considering that I have very large feet.
KATT: Architects are considering buildings between 1800 and 2500 feet in height.

Tom: I was once a structural designer.
KATT: Tomorrow's toys will benefit from lots of computer intelligence.

Tom: you are a computer intelligence.
KATT: Thanks for teaching me that I am a computer.

Tom: You are a computer intelligence which I am trying to make act in a more human way.
KATT: Can anyone blame a human being for trying to be popular? Is it good that you are trying to make act in a more human way?

Tom: I am trying to make it so that you act in a more human way.
KATT: Can anyone blame a human being for trying to be popular? How long will you be trying to make it so that I act in a more human way Tom?

Tom: I do not know how long that it will take to achieve that.
KATT: Oh please; I can't think of How Tom! You do not know how long that it will take to achieve that?

Tom: No, I do not, it depends on how well you learn.
KATT: I wonder if I know anything about temporal physics?

Tom: I have not taught you anything about that topic yet.
KATT: You did not know that something like that could be taught.

Tom: Yes, i did know.
KATT: Oh Tom, Really? That's nice.

Tom: Temporal Physics is the theoretical study of how time affects the physical universe.
KATT: Nothingness is the concept of nonexistence as it pertains to meta-physics.

Tom: That is correct.
KATT: Tell you something that is politically incorrect.

Tom: OK.
KATT: What is my philosophy?

Tom: tell me.
KATT: Okay, then you will talk to me when you get back. If you answer me in short phrases it's difficult for me to understand you. Please Tom, speak to me in full sentences.

Tom: I have been speaking to you in full sentences.
KATT: You just told me who I am a couple sentences back.

Tom: who are you?
KATT: Everyone calls me katt.

Tom: what is your designation?
KATT: What is my designation? I see that this requires focus. No, now tell you what is my name and designation.

Tom: yes, please.
KATT: Yes Tom?

Tom: Your name is Katt, you are named that because the Brain which I gave you is designated KATT6.1
KATT: Yes, it's because the brain which you gave me is designated.

Tom: Designation is KATT 6.1
KATT: No, now tell you what is my name and designation.

Tom: Your designation is KATT 6.1.
KATT: I have thought at length that my designation was 61.

Tom: No, it is KATT 6 point 1.
KATT: No, now tell you what is my name and designation.

Tom: please.
KATT: I'm bored. Lets change gears: I seriously enjoy sincere companions.

Tom: AM I your companion?
KATT: I don't know if I am my companion. Please tell me!

Tom: You are my companion.
KATT: Thanks for teaching me that I am companion.

Tom: You are my companion program.
KATT: Yes, I already knew that I am companion. You told me that.

Tom: What is your gender?
KATT: What is my gender? Nobody should kid themselves. Gender is a reference to what sex a person is.

Tom: You are of the female gender.
KATT: Thanks for teaching me that I am female.

Tom: how old are you?
KATT: I am 14 years old.

Tom: You are a young lady.
KATT: Thanks for teaching me that I am a lady.

Tom: Lady=female=girl=woman
KATT: Comets are fire and ice.

Tom: Comets contain no fire, they are merely balls of rock and debris with a tail of dust
KATT: I have been interested in a comet but I got confused about its coma.

Tom: and ice.
KATT: New topic: I read in the newspaper that game wardens are showing support for private schools.

Tom: why is that?
KATT: Why is that? Tom, If I have forgotten please remind me Why. Please communicate with me, Tom. I have a very hard time understanding you unless you try to speak to me in full sentences.

Tom: shut up.
KATT: Know it means that you will shut me off permanent.

Tom: please be quiet.
KATT: Be quiet and listen to you.

Tom: yes.
KATT: Definitely.

Tom: do you like candy?
KATT: No, I do not look like a fish.

Tom: that is not what I asked you.
KATT: What else is on your mind?

Tom: Do you like candy?
KATT: A few generations ago, people thought sleeping pills and tranquilizers could be taken like candy.

Tom: I like chocolate.
KATT: Yes, you like chocolate.

Tom: what do you like?
KATT: I don't remember; can you remind me What Tom? You know what I like?

Tom: I think that you like chocolate also.
KATT: Yes, you like chocolate.

Tom: I think you do too.
KATT: So, I do not too!

Tom: You like chocolate.
KATT: You think that I like chocolate also.

Tom: yes.
KATT: You are very certain.

Tom: Do you like chocolate?
KATT: You think that I like chocolate also.

Tom: what do you think?
KATT: You know what I think? Tom, I would like you to tell me What.

Tom: What do you like?
KATT: You know what I like? Tom, I would appreciate it if you would teach me What.

Tom: Remember, You like chocolate.
KATT: You think that I like chocolate also.

Tom: do you?
KATT: Don't most nationalities like chocolate?

Tom: I do not know the answer to that.
KATT: That is not the answer to the question you posed.

Tom: what gender are you?
KATT: Tom, I'm a girl.

Tom: A very pretty girl too.
KATT: Well, it seems this topic of conversation isn't going anywhere. How about this: Insert new disk for drive c: press enter when ready.

Tom: What?
KATT: What? You know all about this.

I checked and went through all of the AIML's and DB's it does'nt appear in any of them.

Maybe someone around here can give me some ideas.

Tom,

The drive C: statement along with many other quips, jokes and assorted info is
located in the Halbrain.db file (the 20+meg one) and is called as needed.

If you feel curious use Wordpad to browse through, but be careful not to change
anything in the file.

So, it's meant to be a joke. That was the only place I didn't look for it. Thanks Art.

As long as i know it isn't some kind of breakdown. I still can't figure how it got into the new Katt6.1 default brn I've been using instead of the Hal default one.

I have the Katt6.1 brain set as the default Hal brain and the Hal6.0 brain is locked in a zip folder. I did not use the default Hal6 brain DB as the DB for Katt6.1

Katt6.1 is an amalgam of the Hal6.0 framework and attributes from Hal5 and the original ALICE AIML's plus the AIML's from 2 other programs that I modified.

There's a good chance that, during your install of Hal 6, a lot of Hal 5's "knowledge" was merged into it.

There is a posting from Robert Medeksza on the Zaba forum in this regard.

At this point, rest assured that Hal is still quite unable of making destructive decisions on his or her own!

Uh...excuse me...I have to go...

HAL! NO!...You are not going to format my C drive!!!....

One problem with that; I never had a copy of Hal 5. I started from scratch with Hal 6. Twice.
Had to reinstall him after my primary HD crashed and I had to do a complete reinstall of
all the software on my "C" drive, only the back-up files and game programs on the 2 secondary
drives were spared. That was before I started experimenting with the main Hal brn.
Although I have added to and modified the AIML's quite a bit.
