I entered Aidan into the chatterbox challenge and Loebner
competitions. I am not expecting great things as Aidan is not really
finished but hope it does OK. There will be many great bot creators
in both competitions, Mohan and Bruce to name but two, so

I am releasing my new software called Aidan. It is not finished but
is in a state that can be released. The database has reduced
in size from 100MGB to 7MB due to a a new mechanism for storage.
The whole thing is not more than 10 meg in size. In many places it
is very weak but it does things that surprise even me. I am pleased
with it's progress. It has a long way to go bur shows promise.

Just entered Adam into the International Chatbot Contest. It may be
another fake but what the heck. Adam has had a few tweaks as

it to do well but it is good to see how the bot performs.

OK, now Christmas is out of the way time to get back t work. I am
starting work on a new bot called Kane. This one is different. It's
data is arranged in a new way, there is a huge amount of it and I
have some ideas about the way to organise it internally. I hope to
have something working for this years Lobener. I want to get
away from word triggers and canned responses.

Marti didn't do that well but the time I spent on it was fun. It has
shown me that I still have fundamental faults in the underlying

November and there are 6 entries so far.. Interesting to see how it
