Lollercaust in Philadelphia

This is an excerpt of a trip report I made for a business trip to Pottstown, PA in 2006. I really wish I had pictures to go along with this, but I think the prose does a decent job at documenting the insanity of it all.

Zummy: It's Alive!

Zummy is an IRC Q&A bot that used to answer FAQs in the EFnet IRC channel #LinuxOS near the end of the last millennium. He can learn from linking-verb based statements in a channel and subsequently answer questions using those definitions. He also has a keyword-based system that can be programmed by channel ops. Believe it or not, Zummy was actually even quoted in a publication as a consultant, thus passing an unofficial Turing test.
