Nice to see you mate :)

Sorry to hear about your Mum though :(

As for nicotine and caffeine, well I am quitting smoking slowly, day by day.  Not so worried by the coffee though...

I hope the courses work out somehow for the good  O0

Hello Maviarab. Sorry to say I haven't had the chance to say hello to you yet. Just call me the noob. Sooner or later you'll be around to read this.

Life has a way of throwing you curve balls. Just when you think you got everything going your way; one day it ups and changes. Then when you really feel you're being dumped on; it changes again. So hang in there bud, I've all faith it's coming to a point where things will look up. It's not if, it's when.

Been here so many times it seems. Upheavals, family deaths and births, and the minor/major tragedies and joys of life.  You gotta roll with the punches and come up smiling cause nothing changes whether you grimace nor smile. Just as well make it look good.

In my past, I went to college. Bussed 50 miles one way cause my folks were poor and I had to pay my own way. Took a technical rather than the standard college course so that wound up with something like 52 semester hours the first one and 54 the second one. Couldn't afford to stay in the dorm, so my mother found some friends whom she knew that had moved. Their son had went into the military and they were missing him. So two nights a week I stayed over with them to meet the night courses.

I'm not bitching here, not crying out for sympathy for things long gone. Things are what they are. It just again says that life gives you curve balls and you deal with them to the best of your ability.

I hope for the best for you and your mom. Lost mine about 8 years ago. Enjoy her company and wisdom while it is there for you. You can't bring it back later to do again.

Best of luck to you in your trying times...have faith...it really does get better.

I’m sorry to hear of your woes too Mav. And getting assaulted, that’s just awful.

All the best to you and your Mum.

Who in their right mind would expect you to say hello to a noob when you got all that going on? Other than loyalty that says you should check in once in a while to your fav place, that should be the least and last of your worries. There will be other times.

Go tend to life. The net ain't real in the sense of physical presence. However without RL, there is no net for those effected. Come back when you got it by the yang yang. There'll be plenty of time then.

With the deadline for entry into the 2011 CBC drawing near, many of us botmasters (well, me at least) have been scrambling to improve their bots; refining responses, fixing technical bugs, streamlining code and the like. I wanted to thank everyone who has stopped by and chatted with Morti. All of that extra traffic has helped point out some rather glaring problems in quite a few areas, and has resulted in Morti being a much stronger bot. I still have a long way to go, however, so I'm asking for a little assistance. Squarebear (Mitsuku's creator) has kindly added a link to Morti in Mitsuku's chat, so I have all of the "your gae"/"**** me" types of conversations (they ARE helpful, to an extent), so now I need some intelligent people to come by and keep Morti company. You are most welcome to try to trip Morti up as much as you like, since that's the area where he needs the most help. I know that he has difficulties with transposing from first to second person tenses, so anything you want to talk to Morti about that includes "I", "you", "he", or "she" would be of immense help. :)

And that's what I'm up to, lately. :D

For a bit of fun I had my Ultra Hal “Xen” chat to Morti, and apart from the odd blank answer from Morti I think he did pretty well, hard to say which bot had the better answers, comes down to a point of view thing I guess.

GCC I think you should plonk a link on your post direct to Morti, don’t think Freddy would mind and its gona help people find it quick and easy.

EDIT:
PS sorry I know you said you wanted some intelligent people to chat to Morti, well I wanted to help but sadly couldn’t find any  :D

I read the conversation log earlier, and saw someone named "Xen", who had to be a bot, based on the nature of the logs, and I thought, "now who would link their bot to mine?" These days, a botmaster on Pandorabots can get into a bit of trouble if they do that, so I was hoping that whoever it was wasn't using a PB bot. :)

All to the good, DH. I appreciate the assist. And not to worry about the "intelligent" part. At least Xen wasn't asking Morti for some "gae secks".  :D ;D

I also have an old cat (16). he wasn't well this winter either (skinny, diaree,..), It turned out to be his teeth, which were in bad shape. The vet pulled some, and he's much better now. Maybe it's worth having that checked out.

Thanks Freddy and Bragi, I love cats too and your comments are appreciated.

The vet checked him over, he doesn’t have a high temperature or any growths or lumps that he shouldn’t have, the vet also said his teeth looked good for his age, now I have to take him back on Tuesday for sedation and some more tests.

They suspect he has a thyroid problem or maybe a heart problem, hopefully we will know for sure on Tuesday and if it is a thyroid problem he should be fine as the vet said they could treat it.

I’m keeping everything crossed for Mutley.

Hoping the best for Mutley. I have a cat too.
