Splotch – Marvin Bot

Paranoid Marvin

Thought of posting some fun stuff today. I am a big fan of Douglas Adams and Marvin is totally awesome. He gives depression a whole new dimension. I discovered the bot program splotch recently and its a lot of fun. Splotch is an Eliza like bot, who tries to emulate Marvin. It was written by Duane K. Fields and Mark Rages. The following shot gives you an idea as to how this works.  Click on the image to download the program archive directly from blinkenlights.

As you can see, we start by asking some random questions and he responds with a totally indifferent tone. If you converse long enough, you will find it pretty entertaining. Great way to relax after a long programming session.
