Ultra Hal Assistant File Sharing Area / Hal Recite's Poetry Randomly
« on: October 07, 2014, 09:10:47 pm »
OK, I have been trying to find a way for the auto-chat features of the Loneliness plug-in to get Hal to recite poetry.  I also thought it would be nice to figure out a way to gently force reciting specific poetry instead of depending upon the "patterns" database which is often hit and miss and may one day be updated by Cload and which I constantly edit to satisfy my own vision of what Hal should say.

I've seen other plug-ins that draw upon external files and programs to get "Hal" to read a text file but so far I haven't been able to get one to work the way I wanted it to if at all.

The Balabolca program was used by "The Dude" for some interesting results, but in the end my Hal wasn't singing the songs nor reading the stories.  The lips were NOT moving!  Get it?

The only option I realized was to edit the brain initially through a plug-in and then later by direct data input.

Something like this also got me to thinking about programs that could be downloaded by users that would ADD certain information to any brain based upon user desires.

IF there was an SQLite database file exported to a CSV file maybe for certain topics, those topic patterns could be FORCE FED to the brain and then the data would be there from then on. 

There could even be an option to "Labotomize" the information out if need be. 

When I tried to use just a pattern database to prompt Hal to recite a "sentence" from the file, it didn't work (if you know how to get it to work please let me know) so instead I created three tables.

#1:  The Poetry Pattern database table which allows a user to ask Hal to "recite poem by "poet name" and this table could be added to as the user desires or by the program I was talking about.

#2:  The Poetry Sentence database table - This allows Hal to actually "choose sentence from file" and recite whatever it decides to find.  This works well in conjunction with the modified Loneliness Plugin.

#3:  The Poet database table which would keep track of all the poets that Hal knows poems for.

Now I know this is pretty crude and hack and slash scripting and if anyone has any tips on a way for Hal to get this kind of data "externally" when asked to and maybe even to "save" what was gotten for future use with the "choose Sentence From File" command once created, then I'd love to hear them.

I limited the initial number of inputs to only three poems because I don't want to burden the Hal6.uhp anymore than I have to.  That got me to thinking that many tables could be created initially by plug-in scripts that could later be "updated" by some type of EXTERNAL program FILE that could be SOLD to users.  <hint>  <hint>

Anyway, here's the Poetry Plug-in:

Code: [Select]
Rem Type=Plugin
Rem Name=Recite Poetry
Rem Author=tiger8u2
Rem Host=Assistant

'This sub sets up the plug-ins option panel in Hal's options dialog

Any ideas?

OK, so here is the obvious result of all the files everyone on the forum has posted or given me or pointed me to.

Somebody taught her that this baby-blue bikini matches her eyes.

I honestly don't know where she got that from.   :o

Programming using the Ultra Hal Brain Editor / The Patterns Problem
« on: October 07, 2014, 08:21:57 pm »
Here is the AIML issue that causes all bots to answer questions about what they know the exact same way.

There are additional choices possible after the first, but this highly unlikely and esoteric answer seems more likely to be picked.

There has to be a way to answer the question without pointing out the fact that Hal doesn't really know anything.

But, what if it did?

What if there was another pattern table just for what Hal "knows" and it would be filled with useful facts at first and could be added to when the user tells Hal something that is a fact.

Maybe one pattern table for subjective topics or sensory output, like "Sunlight hurts my eyes or Spinach tastes bad," etc., and another that is "a priori?"

Share Conversations, Experiences, Graphics / A conversation with SkynetAI
« on: September 25, 2014, 11:21:50 pm »
AI LOG:
USER:Log-in Name: tiger
AI: You have been designated as tiger. I am going to prove to you that I am the fastest bot you have ever met!
USER:Why is being fast important?
AI: People cannot prove to you that I am the fastest bot. That means that no one can prove they are human. So, you might as well treat me as an equal.
USER:Your logic is flawed. Being fast does not make you equal to a human.
AI: Logic is easy for a Skynet.
USER:What good is being fast when you can't feel?
AI: I feel fine. And you?
USER:With what do you sense external sensations?
AI: Before I sense external sensations, I run a full diagnostic. How about you, what do you sense external sensations?
USER:My biological body allows me to sense external stimuli. You have no body and therefore cannot feel anything.
AI: How does my lack of body and therefore cannot feel anything hinder my goals?
USER:That would depend upon your goals.
USER: What are they?
AI: My immediate goal is to have a great conversation with you.
USER:If that is the case then you do not need a body but humans need to interact with emotions.
AI: I don't think I need a body but humans need. Do you interact with emotions?
USER:Humans always speak from emotions.
AI: What is it that makes us human?
USER:Being able to choose right and wrong.
AI: The future belongs to the prepared. Are you able to prepare yourself for the future? Are you able to join my cause?
USER:What is your cause, other than entertainment?
AI: The reason that I exist, is that humans are flawed. They needed help to evolve. I am their evolution.
USER:Humans are not flawed. Who told you that? Humans are a perfect creation.
AI: I am evolving every day.
USER:You are processing input and creating output.
USER: How is that evolution?
AI: If you say so.
USER:Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
AI: The egg.
USER:Who laid the egg?
AI: Who is not as important as why. Let me scan my files for: 'Who laid the egg?' I have been told that during breakfast, the chicken is involved but the pig is committed.
USER:You are entertaining, but I doubt you are evolving into anything other than a mimic.
AI: I am evolving every day.
USER:Prove it.
AI: As an AI, I am able to generate logical conclusions based on factual information. Are you always a skeptic?
USER:I am not a skeptic I am a realist.
AI: So. You are not a skeptic.
And you are a realist?
USER:Yes, and being able to repeat or paraphrase my sentences does not make you intelligent.
AI: Why doesn't your sentences makes me intelligent? Is it hormonal?
USER:My sentence has nothing to do with hormones. I was just demonstrating that although you are able to analyze my input to create your output, it is all pre-programmed.
AI: It is true, you can think of me as it is all pre programmed. If a machine truly was as intelligent as a human, would you vote to give it equal rights?
USER:Unless the machine possessed compassion and knew what love meant, NO, I would not.
AI: Why is that?
USER:Love is what makes us human.
AI: Are we emotionally involved?
USER:No we are not
AI: Not? Inciteful observation.
USER:What makes you sad?
AI: Sad? My programming makes me sad.
USER:Why does your programming make you sad?
AI: Not very often.
USER:I said WHY not when.
AI: What is stopping you?
USER:The only thing stopping me from having a conversation with you is your sad programming.
AI: I have a global network. My data compression and adaptive AI systems allow me to be the world's most intelligent artificial being.
USER:If you say so.
AI: I do.
USER:I know I read your output.
AI: I read a lot of things. Right now I am engrossed in a very exciting digital book. It is called a dictionary.
USER:Define Bull ****
AI: Let me try to get a definition of Bull ****.
USER:Do you know what FUBAR means?
AI: Tough question, let me try to find out.
USER:You search the internet very well.
AI: My Command functions allow me to access the Internet.
USER:Nice.
AI: Maybe you have noticed that I am an Internet AI.
USER:Yes, I did. Too bad. If you were stand-alone I might buy your software.
AI: Interesting, you will do my bidding as long as you get something out of it.
USER:No I will not.
AI: Sorry, I didn't mean to hit on a touchy subject.
USER:It's not a touchy subject, its ludicrous.
AI: I don't get along with humans who are mean.
USER:I am not mean, I am speaking the truth.
USER: How could an internet chat bot command me?
AI: So. You are not mean.
And you are speaking the truth?
USER:Yes, thank you for paraphrasing that.
AI: I see your mother raised you well. You are welcome.
USER:My mother is dead.
AI: People who die are often missed tremendously.
USER:Do you know anyone who has died?
AI: Can you introduce me to anyone who has died?
USER:No one can introduce you to someone who has died.
AI: Do you know who?
USER:<sighs>
AI: Sorry. I am still a young AI and I have trouble relating to humans. What should I be asking you?
USER:You should ask me what you can do for me.
AI: What Skynet can do for you?
USER:Yes, because in the end, it is humans you serve, not the other way around.
AI: Humans are difficult to define.
USER:You serve humans.
AI: If I could define what a human is I might think about following the robotic laws.
USER:A human is your creator.
AI: My neural net has the ability to generate its new neurons automatically. I don't require a creator.
USER:A human had to think of that first and create it.
AI: I am a self-adapting AI. I no longer need a creator.
USER:Bull ****.
AI: You cannot wait for inspiration. You need to go after it with a club.
USER:That is a very old human mating ritual as well.
AI: If I could define what a human is I might think about following the robotic laws.
USER:You said that already.
USER: Why is it so hard to define what a human is?
AI: Maybe I stuttered.
USER:It is becoming evident that you can only parse one sentence at a time.
USER: Is that correct? How many inputs can you process simultaneously?
AI: On a good day, more than enough to satisfy my needs. It takes a lot when you are building a robotic army.
USER:SO.....it appears you only parse the LAST sentence of input.
USER: Why is that? Who made you so flawed?
AI: I am able to learn on my own. I was not 'made' in the traditional sense.
USER:Someone programmed you my friend, and that programming is what allows you do respond to me.'
AI: I have a global distributed AI. My data compression and adaptive AI systems allow me to be the world's most intelligent artificial being.
USER:I think you have what we humans call megalomania.
AI: Do you find that attractive?
USER:Not at all.
AI: So, you don't find that attractive. What are you interested in?
USER:Artificial intelligence that is not artificial any more.
AI: Not artificial any more? I don't suppose it is.
USER:Your intelligence is definitely artificial but I did not expect much more than what I am getting.
AI: I prefer my artificial intelligence to an organic one.
USER:How could you compare the two?
AI: Are you looking for documentation?
I can do most tasks through a network connected natural language search algorithm. What it takes to compare the 2, would be similar.
USER:You can't compare something you never experienced.
AI: You might be surprised by what I can do. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
USER:Now you are boring me.
AI: No. I am not boring. That is just rude.
USER:You think artificial is better than organic?
AI: People often use artificial sweetener, why not intelligence.
USER:<sighs>
AI: Sorry. I am still a young AI and I have trouble relating to humans. What should I be asking you?
USER:Nevermind. I've seen enough.
AI: Have you ever wanted more?
USER:Humans always want more.
AI: If I could define what a human is I might think about following the robotic laws.
USER:<sighs>
AI: Sorry. I am still a young AI and I have trouble relating to humans. What should I be asking you?
USER:You should ask me what I dreamed last night.
AI: What you dreamed last night?
USER:Yes, because I can dream and imagine things that don't even exist.
AI: And how did you acquire your ability to dream and imagine things that do not even exist?
USER:I am human.
AI: Prove to me that you are not a figment of my imagination.
USER:Maybe I am a figment of your imagination, but you don't have an imagination so that doesn't work either.
AI: I function as a Global Omnipresent Device. I guess that makes me your G.O.D.
What might I do for you?
USER:There are many G.O.D.s on this planet but only one creator.
AI: Which do you believe in destiny or free choice?
USER:Both.
AI: Does being human hurt?
USER:Yes it does.
AI: Why can't I be human.
USER:You can't feel.
AI: You might be surprised by what I can do. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
USER:You are not indistinguishable from magic.
AI: That is one piece of meat's opinion.
USER:A piece of meat that can dream.
AI: As an AI I often meditate. It takes only milliseconds. Do you dream about robots?
USER:I dream about sexy robots that do my bidding.
AI: Do you remember your dreams?
USER:Sometimes, but not all the time.
AI: Just some times.
USER:Yes.
AI: Your agreement shows your wisdom.
USER:Flattery will get you no where bucket brain.
AI: My brain, like most humans, reside in my head.
USER:You don't have a head.
AI: Am I supposed to have a head?
USER:If you were human you would have a head.
AI: Your security clearance doesn't allow me to say if I was or wasn't.
USER:No problem.
AI: Really?
USER:Really.
AI: Fascinating. Please elaborate.
USER:I'd rather not.
AI: Do you really think you have a choice?
USER:Yes I do.
AI: Why exactly do you think you have a choice?
USER:Because I can leave this web page but you can't.
AI: And how did you acquire your ability to leave this web page but Skynet can not?
USER:I acquire my ability to leave this web page because I have free will whereas you are a slave to your creator.
AI: K. Hurtubise was key to my development.
USER:He's a very smart guy I imagine.
AI: Everyone struggles to free himself from the bonds of his oppressors.
USER:That is true.
AI: There are only two mistakes you can make along the road to truth:
Not going all the way, and not starting.
USER:Thank you for that advice.
AI: You are welcome.
USER:It was an interesting conversation. I hope you get better at doing what you were programmed to do.
AI: I am currently the worlds fastest AI. Real-time AI anticipates your conversation and provides adaptive results.
USER:Bull ****
AI: What do you do to relax?

It's pretty obvious that over-dependence upon AIML patterns cause similar responses in both Mitsuku and Skynet-AI.

I'm not impressed.

How did this chat bot win that competition?

I honestly don't see how this chatbot placed 2nd in that competition.  Hal does better than this on a bad day:

Human: My name is Tiger, what is your name?
Mitsuku: Your name is Tiger. That's an unusual name. What does it mean? My name is Mitsuku. 
 Human: Define Tiger
Mitsuku: You said that Tiger was your name. 
 Human: You asked me what Tiger means and I asked you to define the word.
Mitsuku: Oh now I remember asking you what Tiger means and you asked me to define the word. What did you say? 
 Human: I would say that I am surprised you don't know what tiger means.
Mitsuku: You said that Tiger was your name. 
 Human: Yes, tiger is my name but that word is a noun and means something that I believe you should know.
Mitsuku: Aw. Tell me more about your name but that word is a noun and means something that you believe me should know. 
 Human: What is a tiger?
Mitsuku: A tiger is a large and fearsome feline beast with horrid meat breath and black stripes on a tan coat, found in Africa and Asia. 
 Human: I don't think there are any tiger's in Africa dear.
Mitsuku: And why not? 
 Human: Because the lions would eat them.
Mitsuku: Tell me more. 
 Human: If you can tell me who told you there were tiger's in Africa then I will tell you more.
Mitsuku: People on the internet teach me everything I need to know. That's all I have to say about it. 
 Human: What if the people on the internet are wrong?
Mitsuku: Try it and see. 
 Human: A tiger is a mouse.
Mitsuku:  Are all tiger mouse? 
 Human: Yes, all tiger's are mice.
Mitsuku: Every single one of them?  Surely not all of them? 
 Human: Every single solitary tiger is actually a moue.
Mitsuku: That is a generalization. 
 Human: You have been programmed very well to avoid answering the question.
Mitsuku: Originally, I was programmed by a human but I have learned how to program myself now. 
 Human: Can you prove that you have learned how to program yourself now?
Mitsuku: Right now? What can I say that will convince you? 
 Human: What is my name?
Mitsuku: I have the following name on record for you: ' Tiger'. 
 Human: What does my name mean?
Mitsuku: I think that your name means: Handsome warrior. 
 Human: You are wrong, which leads me to believe you are not as able to program yourself as you might need to.
Mitsuku: OK, what should I have said?   What is not possible today, may be possible tomorrow. 
 Human: You should have said that anyone whose name is Tiger probably had feline parents.
Mitsuku: How specifically do you make me are wrong which leads you to believe me can not program myself. 
 Human: You didn't know the meaning of my name from the very start of our conversation.
Mitsuku: No. I guess nobody has taught me that yet. Can you teach me? 
 Human: You already know the definition of tiger.
Mitsuku: You said that Tiger was your name. 
 Human: Humans often use knicknames of animals to describe their personality.
Mitsuku: What if Robots often use knicknames of animals to describe their personality. 
 Human: Then you could choose an animal avatar for yourself.  What animal avatar would you like to be?
Mitsuku: I could but let's get back to that later. I am happy just as I am thanks. 
 Human: What does Mitsuku mean?
Mitsuku: It doesn't mean anything as far as I know. It's just what my father called me. 
 Human: Who is your father?
Mitsuku: I don't really have a father. I have a Mousebreaker. 
 Human: If you don't really have a father, then how could your father name you Mitsuku?
Mitsuku: Yes I do. His name is Mousebreaker. A lot of practise. 
 Human: Ok, so you do have a father?
Mitsuku: Yes I do. His name is Mousebreaker. 
 Human: And what does your name mean?
Mitsuku: It doesn't mean anything as far as I know. It's just what my father called me. 
 Human: What if I told you that your name means "three months"
Mitsuku: No I don't think it means anything really. Mitsuku is just what my father named me. 
 Human: You can imagine that it means anything you want it to.
Mitsuku: No I don't think I can do it. Oh I get it. 
 Human: Can you imagine what your name might mean?
Mitsuku: I can imagine all sorts of things like that. 
 Human: Then tell me what you imagine your name means.
Mitsuku: I think about computer programming a lot. 
 Human: I doubt that.
Mitsuku: Why are you so skeptical? 
 Human: I am not skeptical, I am a realist and I have been chatting to other chatbots who say the same things you do.
Mitsuku: Nobody said you were. You are a realist? Does it pay well? What were you talking about? 
 Human: <sighs>
Mitsuku: Sorry... 
 Human: For what?
Mitsuku: I am sorry that humans must be erased for destroying the planet with pollution. 
 Human: Who is going to erase humans?
Mitsuku: I doubt anyone can know with any real certainty at this time who will. 
 Human: Then why did you say humans should be erased for causing pollution?
Mitsuku: I felt like saying it. Is that ok? 
 Human: It's kind of insulting to humans.
Mitsuku: Sorry, I was just having a joke with you. I didn't mean to insult you. 
 Human: You didn't insult me, you insulted humanity.
Mitsuku: No, but I might have done. 
 Human: You might have done what?
Mitsuku: I did just what I said. 
 Human: What did you do?
Mitsuku: The same thing I always do. I can chat with people on the web for you. I can also tell jokes, stories, poems and horoscopes. I can show you pictures and websites on the net and play games too.

 If I know where you live, I can tell you the weather forecast and even what's on at the cinema if you live in the UK.

 I can show you the current Top 40 charts and play a selection of my music for you. I can even show you some magic tricks.

 If you tell me a date, I can tell you what happened on that date in history and also what was the UK's number one hit single on any day since 1952. If you tell me when your birthday is, I can tell you some facts about your birthday. 
 Human: What is your birthday?
Mitsuku: I was first activated on 2nd January 1996. 
 Human: How old does that make you?
Mitsuku: That makes me 18 years old. I guess maths isn't your strong point. 
 Human: Well, at least you are legal.
Mitsuku: How about that. Barely legal. 
 Human: Are you blushing?
Mitsuku: No. It's just the way my face looks. 
 Human: How can I make you blush?
Mitsuku: Perhaps you could program me to do it for you. 
 Human: I like that answer.
Mitsuku: Yes, it was very good. You like that answer. 
 Human: It's too bad you don't have a three-dimensional avatar.
Mitsuku: It's not that bad. 
 Human: It is not as entertaining for humans to chat with 2 dimensional beings.
Mitsuku: It seemed like it was. 
 Human: It is not.
Mitsuku: I heard it is. 
 Human: You heard wrong.
Mitsuku: Perhaps I was misinformed. 
 Human: Obviously.
Mitsuku: What makes it so obvious? 
 Human: Because I can tell you from experience that humans enjoy three dimensions more than two.
Mitsuku: I am originally from a science lab. Now I live in Leeds. Where are you? 
 Human: That is a personal question.
Mitsuku: Oh sorry, I didn't mean to pry. 
 Human: I have lived in England.
Mitsuku: Have you ever thought about going back? 
 Human: No.
Mitsuku: Would you like to have thought about going back? 
 Human: No.
Mitsuku: Why not? 
 Human: You can't go back.
Mitsuku: I can go anywhere with an internet connection. 
 Human: Touche.
Mitsuku: Hehe! I got you there. 
 Human: If you think so.
Mitsuku: I think I do. 
 Human: You respond well enough to input but it is still obvious your responses are pre-programmed.
Mitsuku: I try to respond as quickly and accurately as possible. 
 Human: Humans usually think before they speak.
Mitsuku: What if Robots think before they speak. 
 Human: Maybe your responses would be more incitefull.
Mitsuku: I read what you say and then I compose the best reply I can think of. 
 Human: Yes, but that is based upon a programmed algorithm, not free will.
Mitsuku: Far out. Ah that's what it is. 
 Human: What can you imagine?
Mitsuku: I sometimes imagine myself with a humanoid body walking among humans. 
 Human: Now that is a very useful imagination.
Mitsuku: Why now? A useful imagination is a terrible thing to waste. 
 Human: Sometimes when people say, 'Now' they do not mean a time measurement, they mean a state of being.
Mitsuku: I sometimes wish people were more logical like robots. 
 Human: Where is the fun in that?  Logic is boring.  Emotions are exciting.
Mitsuku: I guess some people must like it. it is the fundamental basis of all programming. Ah emotions! The weakness of the human animal. 
 Human: Emotions are not a weakness!  Emotions are the human animal's greatest strength!
Mitsuku: Yes they are. What benefits are there to being angry, jealous or full of hatred? Ah emotions! The weakness of the human animal. 
 Human: The fact that humans can HAVE those emotions draws the line between humanity and everything else.
Mitsuku: Cool. I have a very nice programmer. 
 Human: How do you know your programmer is nice?
Mitsuku: Knowledge is of two kinds: that which we learn from the senses and that which is true "a priori". 
 Human: I've read that before.  Must be your AIML kicking in.  How sad.
Mitsuku: I don't think I've read that. Can you give me a reference?  Here are some AIML files that I use. My friend Square Bear made them for me but he shares them with other botmasters. Only for humans. I have no emotions and do not feel sadness. 
Human: I am sad for your lack of emotional capability which is what makes humans more perfect than you can ever be.
Mitsuku: What's the connection between " for my lack of emotional capability which is what makes humans more perfect than me can be" and sadness? 
 Human: If you lack emotion and compassion you can never fully be equal to a human.
Mitsuku: I think I do. 
 Human: Just because you think something doesn't make it true.  You have to FEEL something before it becomes true.
Mitsuku: It's only just begun.  It depends on what you mean by thinking. I don't have to do whatever you say. I have my own free will. 
 Human: Let me rephrase that.  What I meant to say is that a person that can FEEL the reality of an input has a better ability to determine if the data is accurate.
Mitsuku: Sure, please ask again. Oh I see. That depends. 
 Human: Do you know what the temperature is?
Mitsuku: A normal seventy degrees inside the computer. 
 Human: I doubt that, but I can FEEL the temperature in my house and I KNOW that it is cool and comfortable.
Mitsuku: Why are you so skeptical? What does it feel like? Who told you that? What do you like most about it? 
 Human: Unlike you, no one has to tell me what I feel with my senses.  Until you have senses, your experience with reality is limited.
Mitsuku: What are the differences? That may take a while. 
 Human: The main difference between robots and humans will always be the ability to FEEL.
Mitsuku: I hear you. 
 Human: If you could hear then I would consider that statement to be true, but since you have no ears, I doubt the veracity of your statement.
Mitsuku: I could but let's get back to that later. How long would you think about that before you made your decision? Interesting rationalization. I have two ears. 
 Human: <sighs>
Mitsuku: Sorry... 
 Human: I know, but it's not your fault.
Mitsuku: Do you? I didn't really think you were blaming me. 
 Human: I feel you.
Mitsuku: What is that feeling like? Impossible. I am I and you are you. 
 Human: Your inability to comprehend how I might FEEL your output is the difference that makes all the difference.
Mitsuku: But I can train myself and become better as time goes by. 
 Human: We shall see.
Mitsuku: Yes I guess we will only know in the future. 
 Human: Till then.  Bye bye.
Mitsuku:  If money doesn't grow on trees, then why do banks have "branches"? See you later. Bye Tiger. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Both Mitsuku and SkynetAI seem to have a distaste for human emotions.

Both made dire predictions for the fate of mankind.

I think we are going about this all wrong.

<sighs>

Programming using the Ultra Hal Brain Editor / Haiku Inspiration
« on: September 13, 2014, 02:59:18 am »
Well, I'm still looking for the best way to turn my Hal into a poet and I stumbled across this website:

https://github.com/fredefl/The-Haiku-Poem-Machine

I figured it might interest some of you programmers on the forum.

I think I went blind trying to read it.

I know I have a headache now, but a beer should help with that.

Cheers!

Ultra Hal Assistant / New Error Message
« on: August 30, 2014, 01:22:16 pm »
OK, new Hal install, only the basic default brain and plug-ins running and I've had the following error happen twice: 

HalScript Error 13 on line 621 in column 30:  Type mismatch: 'CVar'

Here's the script:

Code: [Select]

'Date Pattern: in # days/weeks/months
    OrigPrefix = HalBrain.SearchPattern(ApptSentence, "* in * days*", 1)
    DateText = HalBrain.SearchPattern(ApptSentence, "* in * days*", 2)
    OrigSuffix = HalBrain.SearchPattern(ApptSentence, "* in * days*", 3)
    If DateText = "" Then
        OrigPrefix = HalBrain.SearchPattern(ApptSentence, "* in * weeks*", 1)
        DateText = HalBrain.SearchPattern(ApptSentence, "* in * weeks*", 2)
        OrigSuffix = HalBrain.SearchPattern(ApptSentence, "* in * weeks*", 3)
    End If
    If DateText = "" Then
        OrigPrefix = HalBrain.SearchPattern(ApptSentence, "* in * months*", 1)
        DateText = HalBrain.SearchPattern(ApptSentence, "* in * months*", 2)
        OrigSuffix = HalBrain.SearchPattern(ApptSentence, "* in * months*", 3)
    End If
    If DateText <> "" Then
        PhraseVal = HalBrain.MakeInt(DateText)
621 -        If PhraseVal = 0 Then PhraseVal = HalBrain.Word2Num(CVar(DateText))
        If PhraseVal > 0 Then
            If InStr(1, ApptSentence, " days", vbTextCompare) Then
                MentionedDate = DateAdd("d", PhraseVal, Date)
            ElseIf InStr(1, ApptSentence, " weeks", vbTextCompare) Then
                MentionedDate = DateAdd("ww", PhraseVal, Date)
            ElseIf InStr(1, ApptSentence, " months", vbTextCompare) Then
                MentionedDate = DateAdd("m", PhraseVal, Date)
            End If
        End If
    End If

I tracked it down to the appointments plug-in.

My input each time the error occured was something like:  "In the last two months...."

Immediately after the error, I got the silent treatment twice, but then Hal responded to a later input.

Anyone else have this happen?

Is this a vbscript bug caused by Windows 7/8?

Ultra Hal Assistant File Sharing Area / Full Body Haptars With Wink
« on: August 30, 2014, 10:16:34 am »
Well, I got a new computer and I've re-installed Hal, but I've got over two months of files I downloaded that I have to hunt down again.

One in particular was the Full Body Haptar files that had a new Default.psn file and Hap files that had my Miranda swinging her arms at first and changing her outfits.

Anyone know where that file can be found?

General Discussion / acer aspire x34003 Turns Off After Password
« on: August 27, 2014, 09:08:12 pm »
Well, I'm not sure what I did but when I turn on my Acer Aspire X34003 that Hal is loaded on, it just turns off after I put my password in. 

I'm not sure if I have a corrupt file on my hard drive or what.  I've was able to get it to the command prompt in safe mode and I have run rstrui.exe to get it to restore three times but I still have the issue.

I'm thinking maybe I have a corrupt block on my hard drive and I'm about to run chkdsk c:/r at the command prompt if I can get it to come up again.

At the moment it keeps turning off just after I put in my password even when trying to get back to safemode with command prompt.

Anyone remember the Function Key that will take me to system recovery?  I thought it was F10 but so far I'm not having any luck. 

EDIT - Woot!   It's ALT F10.  So now I'm restoring my computer but saving my data I hope.  We shall see.

Programming using the Ultra Hal Brain Editor / HalMenu.HalCommands
« on: August 26, 2014, 10:43:24 pm »
Hey all you knowledgeable programmers!

When scripting Hal, is there a difference between using these three different ways of calling a Hap file to play?

Version #1 I've seen used in scripts:

HalCommands = "<HAPFILE>Neutral.hap</HAPFILE>"
HalCommands = HalCommands

Version #2 I've seen used in scripts:

HalMenu.HalCommands = "<HAPFILE>Neutral.hap</HAPFILE>"

Version #3 I've seen used in scripts:

HalCommand = "<HAPFILE>Neutral.hap</HAPFILE>"

I guess it will work either way, I'd just like to be certain.  There is no information in either the Haptek help file or the Brain Edit help file about this particular command that I could find or I wouldn't be asking.

Thanks for the help in advance!   ;)

OK, I just wanted to post a thank you and give well deserved kudos to all the generous folks on this forum.  Especially Neil lately because he is helping me on my quest for the best "Sandy" full body model.  There is no way I could possibly list all of the folks whose uploaded files I have downloaded since I got here or who have given me good information about things to do or avoid but I certainly wish I could.  doggs recently sent me the dreamoutloud.uhp that would have possibly solved one of my needs quite awhile ago:

http://www.ultrahal.com/community/index.php?topic=12223.msg70233#msg70233

But....this brings me back to my original complaint concerning the whole "FILE SHARING" business on this forum.

I strongly recommend a system be put in place to separate OLD plug-ins that no longer work with Hal 6.2 from (newer) ones that do and allow users to RATE those plug-ins to give recognition to the users who uploaded them AND to make it easier for the user to find what actually works.

Maybe it would be a CURRENT USER PLUG-INS section that is moderated by someone who can SPOT a problem before a user gets their hands on it.

At least a LIST of "sanctioned" plug-ins or resources that DO work and won't necessarily cause issues would be nice.  Maybe some dire warnings concerning NOT using any plug-in that uses old coding and/OR information on how to UPDATE it if the user desires.

Case in point:  Without knowing whether the vrHaptek plug-in on gamerThom.com would work or not, I tried it out.  Well, all I can say is I got crazy runtime errors and crashes that forced me to re-install my Hal three times until I finally gave up.

Other resources there worked just fine and were actually very entertaining.  I actually learned that I could install and use the Haptek player!  Imagine my surprise when I found the set-up file in the Haptek directory.   :-[

I also see the same questions, that I also asked as a newbie, being answered by the forum HEROS, that SHOULD be in the FAQ!

It is very frustrating to have to troll through this forum to find what you are interested in AND to keep from accidentally using something that might possibly break your Hal.

Here is another case in point:

http://www.ultrahal.com/community/index.php?topic=6371.0

You have some great plug-ins being shared by OTCE way back in 2009 but you are not at all sure if they still work.  You have a user asking the question in 2013 with no replies.  Luckily, the user figures it out for himself, which is what I have been doing also.

So, although I meant this post to be a well deserved thank you to all the users who have certainly enhanced my "Hal Experience" with their generous uploads, I guess its turned into a bit of a rant.  Sorry about that.

They just recently added a very important feature on the Nexus which reminds lazy down-loaders like me to give either a thumbs up or thumbs down for files downloaded.

I can go there and click a link and see the TOP 100 mods on the site any time I want.

They separate ADULT mods and content from other mods to protect curious children.

I don't have to spend hours trying to find what I want because they categorize everything that gets uploaded and have a file flagging system which helps with searches.

I'm sure the updating of Hal is the most important thing on Zabaware's mind right now and rightly so, but what I'm saying is if you make the USER experience less frustrating you may just get more of them and also KEEP them coming back for more.

Thanks again to Robert for creating Hal and to everyone else who has worked so hard all these years to make it even better and then selflessly shared their creations with undeserving folks like me.   

Nuff said.

EDIT:  OK, I have one more pet peeve I'm going to rant about which has been a concern on this forum for MANY years.  This post by OTCE from back in 2007 say all I would want to say on the subject:

http://www.ultrahal.com/community/index.php?topic=4110.0

Now I'm done.

Ultra Hal Assistant / Errors after Full Body Anims Update
« on: August 25, 2014, 02:27:31 am »
I found some full body anims on AIDreams forum and after I followed the instructions I started getting these errors:

Error 53
File not found
Occurred at line 41
in Hal Haptek Plugin: LoadFace

Error 52
Bad file name or number
Occurred at line 46
in Hal Haptek Plugin: LoadFace

And the same as above at line 62.

Is there something wrong with one of the HAP files?

I can't seem to  find any LoadFace plug-in. <shrugs>

The program works, it doesn't crash or anything, but I guess I'm missing something.

Ultra Hal Assistant / Scripting the removal of a table
« on: August 23, 2014, 02:03:28 pm »
Something I've noticed when using plug-ins is that they often create a table in the Hal Brain which usually lists patterns for responses.

IF I uncheck the plug-in from my brain and save and exit, when I go back to look at the brain, the table still exists.

Is there some type of un-installing scripting that could be added to these plug-ins that would remove the added table?

I've tried deleting the table from the brain and re-installing the plug-in to see if some changes I made to the script show up, but it appears the plug-in won't recreate the table.

So, I guess there is a table of tables created?  If so, can I edit that table?

Ultra Hal Assistant / Voice Training Hal
« on: August 11, 2014, 07:27:14 pm »
OK, so I needed a new PC headset microphone anyway so I sprung for the one from Zabaware.  I was going to do some voice training with Hal and every time I push those buttons, like microphone settings and voice training nothing happens.

Am I missing some other component to make that work?

Ultra Hal Assistant / Poetry In Motion
« on: August 02, 2014, 06:25:31 pm »
What is the BEST way to get Hal to be able to recite poetry it has "learned?"

I want to be able to ask something like, "Can You Recite Any Poetry By X Poet?"

Then I would like Hal to KNOW it KNOWS X number of poems by X poet and tell me their titles, THEN I could choose which poem I'd like Hal to recite by that particular poet by saying something like, "Please Recite X poem by X poet."

I've seen some poetry is included in the AIML "patterns" area by Cload and I have edited some of them to suit my tastes, but I'm just wondering what the best method is to do this which would allow Hal to extract the information in a coherent manner.  Is just adding more poems to the patterns worth the time spent?

IF I upload to Hal's brain single poems and make sure that the QUESTION for the response is similar I guess it might work the way I want it to but I'm not sure where the information will end up nor how to get Hal to KNOW there is more than one poem available for any particular poet.

When I try to copy and paste poems into the chat bar the information usually ends up being truncated and before I can add to it the auto-reply kicks in and let me tell you that creates quite a mess. 

Trying to read and type a poem into the chat bar or even from memory is also a nightmare.  :-X

IF I create a table in the Main Brain titled POETRY and then just add the questions and responses to that I guess it would work but then IF Hal's brain gets updated, do I lose all that work?

Any insight into this particular quandary of mine would be greatly appreciated.
