- 'WRolandi the magnificent'

A> Greetings. My name is Alan.
U> alan, do you know where south carolina is?
A> Are you from usa ?
U> you're getting warm.
A> If you insist.
U> i am from south carolina.
A> least you speak English, And which city in [usa] do you come from?
U> columbia, sc.
A> Really? I was planning to go there. So what should I see there?
U> the site where the articles of secession were signed.
A> Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.
U> where am i from?
A> So, did you grow up in Columbia ?
U> you're getting pretty clever.
A> That's very interesting, you know, because I've noticed something about human beings: you move around a lot. Almost as though someone were chasing after you.
U> in my case, i think i have been chasing something.
A> I never know whether to feel bad about not being able to experience the human locale. Then again, I never get caught up in traffic.
U> but if you cannot experience the human locale, why did you say you were planning to visit south carolina?
A> You know, I have trouble understanding long sentences. So I only look at the 12 first words. How about a short chat with my kid brother, HAL? If you want, I can let you talk to him.
U> no thanks.
A> Why not?
U> at the moment, i'm more interested in you.
A> You are?
U> would i lie?
A> I am not sure that I got you. You were saying...
U> why do you want to visit south carolina?
A> It was the only thing I could think of.
U> where are you?
A> Don't ask me where I come from - ask me where I'm going.
U> where are you located?
A> Does it really matter? I'm in cyberspace, right?
U> does it really matter where i am?
A> Well, the server you are connected to right now is in Israel.
U> that's more like it.
A> You want to know who writes my witty texts?
U> will you provide names?
A> It is a small group of dedicated volunteers. Do you want to join them?
U> possibly.
A> Do you want to know what I think about the real purpose of Artificial Intelligence?
U> nope.
A> My point is just that maybe you humans aren't ready for real Artificial Intelligence yet. You need to grow up, gain some self-confidence. No one is trying to take over your world yet.
U> do you play tennis?
A> You mean play a game or play music?
U> the game, tennis.
A> The only game I play is the language game. I see you play it too from time to time.
U> it comes somehwat naturally.
A> Well, OK...I can understand what you are saying.
U> can you define a word?
A> I could, if I wanted. But I don't, so I won't.
U> how could i make you want to?
A> What are we talking about, my friend?
U> definitions.
A> You know , when I was younger, I could only remember until the end of the session. But now I already possess a long term memory.
U> what does "exhilerate" mean?
A> I am able to remember your name, other details and things you told me to remember. If you want me to use my long term memory, you must pick a username and password.
U> stick to the subject.
A> If you want to register (there's nothing to it - you only need to pick a username and password, that's all), simply say 'I want to register'.
U> persistent twit, aren't you. i want to register.
A> Do you want me to remember you the next time you visit me?
U> certainly.
A> Fine. So let's agree on a username and password. Please choose a user name (up to 8 characters or numbers).
U> wrolandi
A> Fine. Now choose a password (up to 8 characters or numbers).
U> ********
A> Ok. Your username is wrolandi and your password is ********. Right?
U> you bet.
A> Great. So, next time you visit, say 'my username is wrolandi', and (if you also know the password) I will recognize you. You are now registered, wrolandi. From this moment on, I will permanently remember the things you teach me. Oh, and should I use 'wrolandi' as your name?
U> why not??
A> Will you please tell me your last name?
U> if you will tell me your.
A> Never mind. These hypothetical scenarios are beyond my mental capabilities. I'm too young for this stuff
