Description: Tech support phone monkey by day, Furry Secondlife addict at most other times...
My instant chat messenger accounts (in this case it was skype) are usually quiet apart from some direct chatter from friends I know. But once in a while out of the blue I will get a sudden flirty person. Only to be disappointed that these online flirts are usually nothing but chat spam.
Now back in earlier days of the wild internet – chat scams and spam could be easily spotted in two ways: One was that you could tell you were chatting to a live person asking something from you who would be intelligent enough to give you dynamic responses. The other was spambots that just sent you a comment or two with a link that then hoped you’d follow the link.
This one I experienced seems to be part of a new tactic – using a dynamic AI chatbot to try and seem more convincing that you are talking to a person. (either that or someone’s damn good at following a series of prompts). What gave it away was a bit of the nature of how intelligent chatbots interact. They usually don’t say anything unless you say something back to them (in that they don’t act more randomly with their own well formed opinions on things) along with what I was suspecting – a URL to some shady sounding website.
Either way I thought I’d see how far this chat would go with a bit of my occasional style of cheekyness. – some of you will probably get a giggle out of parts of it. ENJOY!

SPAMBOT: i use this website to play on cuz i don’t want to be recorded!!..this website does not allow members to record my webcam!! u know ??
Muddy: that might stop some – but it won’t stop everyone from recording a video
SPAMBOT: credit card is just to prove ur age, you will get in for free thru my page but you need to prove that you’re an adult ..can’t show tits and pussy to under agers, ya know ?
Muddy: that is true – but how many under age people would be sporting a decent beard?

Muddy: sorry – too far away for me
SPAMBOT: k ur ready lemme kno when ur in sweety …
Muddy: in where? Are you daring to ask me the dreaded “Is it in yet?”
SPAMBOT: r ya in yet ?

Muddy: but you said the credit card would only be for age verification?
Muddy: well this has been entertaining – thankyou for being an interesting spambot
Muddy: and you are ok with that?
SPAMBOT: what’s taking you so long sexy i’m in here waitin for ….
Muddy: you don’t really taste like chicken do you?
Muddy: what’s the matter? cat got your tounge?
At which point the chat has gone silent. Oh well – maybe the next “babe” that comes along will be a bit more fun to chat to.
All you regular secondlife users will get this joke…
Don’t you hate it when your favourite hangouts start dropping out?
It’s like a giant game of leap-frog between simulators just to stay online.
Not sure if much will get made – but if I ever do a few random poems then at least I have a category for them!
I am likely to post my poems first via my deviantart profile but will also share them via my blog soon after.
A kiss, One hug, Two hugs,
And maybe a little groping…
Soon there is fondling and suddenly,
“Whoa! Where’s that thing going!?!”
Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme challenge time. This time the instructions were:
Take a RL meme and bring it into SL. Or, if you prefer, create a new meme of yourself
Aside from posting a previously made meme: http://fav.me/d5rblog
I also made the following picture (and may make one or two more during the week):
Taken from a social media post:
Sometimes, proprietary software actually helps us fight for freedom. Windows 8 is so bad it’s almost funny–it’s not only proprietary software full of spyware and security vulnerabilities, but it’s also confusing for would-be users. Lucky for us, Microsoft’s spectacular failure is the perfect time to help people switch to free software.

Ok so I’m starting to look for a way to do these comics regularly – to help with this I’ve joined Tumblr to run an “Ask Muddy” type of blog to encourage activity.
for for my first response I give your the following comic. It didn’t appear as good as I hoped on the tumblr site but I think with some adjustments future posts will turn out better. (I might go back to it to fix the pics up later)
My comic is also posted on:

This post is a response to Strawberry Singh’s regular Monday Meme challenge. This week’s challenge was to make a movie poster theme for your avatar. I must say I sure have a number of ideas brewed up to meet this challenge – but only a limited amount of time to do it all. I may later make more posters but here is my first quickly rushed attempt.
It took me a while to make it but it seems to have turned out ok for a rushed attempt at roughly copycatting a movie poster. And it was also convenient that two of my VERA robot avatars already had their TRON outfits pre-arranged so setting up the main screenshot was greatly sped up.
