Save the ions!

When a crazy person talks to bots…

Allright, fine, it was me…

I have just discovered that Google Translate can be used through XMPP! Details in this article about translation bots.

The odd thing is, once I have a “contact” in my contact list, I don’t expect it to be a bot (yes, I would suck at being a judge for a Turing test), so I get carried away…

(15:40:36) ion: you're the best, mr. googlebot!
(15:40:36) en2fr@bot.talk.google.com: tu es le meilleur, Monsieur. googlebot!
(15:40:48) ion: i'm not a googlebot!
(15:40:49) en2fr@bot.talk.google.com: Je ne suis pas un robot Googlebot!
(15:41:02) ion: yes you are!
(15:41:03) en2fr@bot.talk.google.com: Oui vous êtes!
(15:41:14) ion: hey!
(15:41:14) en2fr@bot.talk.google.com: hey!
(15:41:21) ion: you're making me angry!
(15:41:22) en2fr@bot.talk.google.com: vous me mettre en colère!
(15:41:36) ion: quit repeating all I say!
(15:41:36) en2fr@bot.talk.google.com: arrêter de répéter tout ce que je dis!

Anyways, have fun with the bots!
