I downloaded MSN-lib 3.6 from sourceforge and soon the naughty idea of linking this with Eliza
the therapist (joe, jeff , jez version of Eliza in python) cropped up almost instantly in my head.
So using a skeleton code of using MSN-lib i picked up from some forum, i did 1+ 1 = 2.
To make it realisic, i provide the "first msg" and the victim input before the bot takes full auto drive.
(All credits due to the original author and contributor to msnlib, eliza and related sources)
I must say i had a great time laughing over the chat logs as my friends and peers communicated with my chatbot. I made the program to log to some hardcoded directory of c:\msnbot since some sample codes is logging to some unix paths.
Well, if u need a break and a laugh, here is the chatbot and continue reading to find out how to configure it :-
Open the file : marbot.py, edit the values below and enter ur hotmail login and password.
m.email = "xxxx"
m.pwd = "xxxx"
Also change the name and nick to ur own :-
m.change_nick("-M- The future")
Ok, done now you are ready to go :-
or just :
After running for a while it will ask 2 lines of input , the first line is the email id of the "victim" you intend to start a conversation with, the 2nd line is the first message you want to send to this person.
From then on, just watch and laugh as your friend communicate with Eliza. The logs are found in c:\msnbot (create this directory or unzip the files below to this directory)
