(07:22)System: Displaying message three (3) of three (3)...
=========================================================================
5 Aug 2083 (Today)
(01:03)ReverseTheStreams: Hey, Sonja. I don't know if you know who I am, but we've spoken before. I was having trouble with a nasty race condition and you helped me debug it. Anyway, I've gotten myself attached to a project that's right up your alley, and we're looking to bring another developer on board. So, if you're interested, hmu?
=========================================================================
/message reply Color me intrigued (it's a shade of purple).
(08:14)System: User ReverseTheStreams is inviting you to #heuristic-rpg.
(08:14)System: User SonjaOfTheMoon is joining #heuristic-rpg.
(08:15)SonjaOfTheMoon: Hi.
(08:16)ReverseTheStreams: Ahhhh! There she is!
(08:16)SonjaOfTheMoon: Well, that's more entheusiasm than I was expecting. What's up?
(08:18)dukerex: revie gets excited about new people, that's all
(08:19)dukerex: i'm duke, here and irl. i'm the cool one
(08:20)*ReverseTheStreams smacks Duke*
(08:20)dukerex: ow
(08:20)ReverseTheStreams: So! Anyway! Ignoring the dumb[censored] husband for a sec-
(08:23)ReverseTheStreams: We're building a library for algorithmic RPG NPC dialogue. The idea is that the player can talk to any character about more or less anything, and they'll response intelligently. From your blog posts, it seems like something you'd be interested in, and you've helped me out before, so I figured we should invite you.
(08:35)ReverseTheStreams: This would be a paid position.
(08:37)SonjaOfTheMoon: Huh. You've got me interested.
(08:38)ReverseTheStreams: :D
(08:38)ReverseTheStreams: Well, I'm Rev, Revie, Alicia, whatever you're most comfortable with. duke's our tester and resident dumb[censored]. Charles isn't online right now, but he's a domain knowledge expert. I'll introduce you two when he's around. I assume you're okay being called Sonja?
(08:40)SonjaOfTheMoon: Well, it's my name. I'd like to know more about this project before I agree to anything.
(08:41)ReverseTheStreams: Of course! We're working mostly in @hena, it's such a great language for this kind of AI work. The client API's in Python, but you don't have to be familiar with that. And, uh-
(08:42)System: User ReverseTheStreams wishes to share Heuristic NPCs.pdf. Accept?
> Yes
(08:44)SonjaOfTheMoon: Oh, wow. That...
(08:45)SonjaOfTheMoon: That's a lot of information. Would you mind if I went to go get some more coffee before I read through all this?
(08:46)ReverseTheStreams: Of course!

RemoveraPersona: omg xeno
this is, like, those super old websites.
That's so cool!!!
i remember, last summer, inky and i were gonna work on trying to make something like a geocities page but we never figured out how to do it well..
How do you get to your saved place, though? I don't see any save buttons. edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: The archive page should remember. Dedicated save/load buttons wouldn't be a bad idea, though... edit delete reply
xianyu118: PRAISE THE LORD edit delete reply
AAABatteries: this is neato edit delete reply
gravyman26: this is cool as hell! subbed! edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: :D Thanks, man, it means a lot. edit delete reply
GMB13carat: You got me hooked from the start. This is really interesting. Can't wait to see more! edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: Oh wow, okay, waking up to five comments on this page was a nice surprise. :D edit delete reply
Adina: Wasn't gonna mention it bc typos are a thing that happens, especially in chats, but Sonja seems to be the type who would care. She wrote "entheusiasm" somewhere near the top. Well, if you care about that at all.

Hmmm are we going to see any of Sonja's blog posts anytime soon? At least a snippet or a link?

Okay an RPG. The project sounds super neat! Too bad I don't know anything about RPGs, but that's my fault. Anyway I'm guessing that Unichat is a big deal in this world. I mean, uni-chat. Can't get more direct than that.

Xenocartographer: Dang, yup, that's an actual typo on my part. I'll just go fix that...

And hey, that's not a bad idea. edit delete reply
RealmLord: Dukestreams OTP edit delete reply
HolmesOfTheEarth: Hello. Just found this comic. Really like it so far. One question: Why is "Ignoring the dumb[censored] husband" censored, but "and resident dumbass" not censored? :) edit delete reply
Guest: Ack, good catch. I was still doing all the filter stuff manually at the time, and I guess that one slipped through. It's been amended. :) edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: That was me, sorry. edit delete reply
endsoftime: Dang it. Seems my theories might not be as on point as I think they are. Completely forgot some details about Revie and Duke
And while they're not that important to my theories, it does lead me to question what other potentially important stuff I've forgotten. edit delete reply
