Ok, here's an update. I've unable to get on my comp for more than an hour or so in the last 5 days, so I've been pretty stuck for doing stuff, but I am working on it.
I'm actually jumping in the deep end and spending most my time redesigning it's thought processes, so that it's actually intelligent. I'm not going to be releasing the "intelligent" version for a while untill I'm sure it's umm.... well let's just say I don't think this kind of symbiotic network has been used before, so I think I should watch it to see the implications before I do release it.
Anyways, I am making only a slightly more powerfull than the norm version which will be fully integrated with phpBB forums in about 4 days or so. It'll have the forum FAQ built in and the ablity to add new AIML responses (read www.alicebot.org
for info about them) plus a bunch of other stuff you'll see when you get it.
