Is there sense still playing? - detective vs bots ...

Hi,
Today I have first doubts - should I play or should I stop ... Why?

I have had a plenty of time today, so I was starting playing ...

About 4AM server time (high noon Central European Time) I checked AIU's standing - 126570 and KKK's standing - 73924). After solving 3RH cases I had extra 24 points - it took me about 45 minutes (quite fast, but of course it could be done a little faster). Next I checked KKK standing - 322 points more - it means 46 SH cases - average 1SH case per minute. After a few more minutes L.D Wallen solved next 23 cases. In sum L.D. Wallen solved in less than 2 hours 59 SH cases.

Any comments?

Are we human or robot?

Ben could You humanize our game? What is the sense playing, when I play half of a day and finish about 15 cases, so bots do 60 cases in 2 hours ....

Are we still feeling spirit of competition?

@Jonny: for me, Wikipedia is a more trustworthy source of informations than somebody, I don't know. It is common sense :)

And, please, tell IBM, that they are wrong too:

@Droid

You complain frequently about the server slowness (even before I created my bot). So if the server slows down, each time you log in, maybe *you* are the cause for its slowness.

To go beyond very simplistic analysis, impressions and (bad) feelings, I checked my bot's log: it ran until 14:20 (server time, I was behind schedule) and no sign of slowness. So either Ben's server is in love with my bot, or the problem is elsewhere.

I don't feel the need to discuss technical details with you. I already did on the forum and I even took the time to answer a question of yours by private mail, but you weren't polite enough to send a reply.

However I'm open to discuss technical details with Ben, if he feels, I may help.

@Jojo: Thanks. I knew you were the smart guy (no irony here). You got me right. All I need to keep me happy, is testing A.I. cases. My "I'm the best" bag, being already full, I don't need exp points nor fame points.

@Joseph: is this Pinyin? Do you know a good Pinyin-English (or French) on line translator? Or are you really talking about rabbits eating cows while surfing on Ben's site?

LOL, I thought that we didn't talk in code. Maybe he has had a little too much of .... sleuth? And the mystery in Sleuth continues.

@LD: Yes, this is cantonese Pinyin. Well, if any chinese could decode it, I wasn't referring it to anyone in particular but referring it to everyone. The contents of it, well, that's for me to know and for anyone to find out. ^_^

@Veronica: Yi guo lei oi chou, em koi lei mou hai dou chou. Lei kam chung yi chou, chow yung lei chi kei ger detective lei chou lar.

I bet you couldn't translate it. Again, its not foul words or anything, just find yourself a translator.

Hi All,

Sorry for putting this off. Defeating the scourge of the bots is a pretty time consuming operation. I'll begin in earnest this weekend.

Many thanks Ben :)
It's sad that you have to use your weekend up for this particular task though.

@Ben: Thank you very much. Opps, I forgot that Ben once told a few of us during 1st Anniversary's Showdown, that his Mom is from Malaysia, maybe Ben understood what I was trying to say in my previous post. ^_^

First of all I would also like to thank Ben. Maybe now all this nonsence will go away. Probably not but one can hope.

Second, I made a promise to someone that I would right a wrong that I did that was pointed out to me. So, here it is. Although I can not do it in the form wanted, this is the best I can offer.

I think people like myself, Veronicas Veil (of course if it is truly her speaking)etc.. should limit themselves to threads that they can honestly contrubute to. I, of course am not referring to the thank you's to Ben. But if this thread was important enough for Ben to post to, then I don't think the never ending bashing really had a place here.

We have had a lot of changes here lately. Someone very dear to me in this game made a comment when all of it started that it was funny how we all put aside our differences and pulled together. In the end, it all came out for the better. Now it is fair across the board.

To the one I am directing this to, there was never any doubt, after all, you started it all.
