    Looks like Stratics' news bot has gone rogue...It's pulling stories from weeks to months ago.

    May be time to pull the plug before it goes the way of Hal 9000, Agent Smith, and the Mach 5.

    News bot goes rogue on the day the new Terminator film opens? Coincidence?
    I think not.

    *whistles*

    I see no evidence of rogue bots here.

    OK, now that all the humor is gone, it's an artifact of UOMythic changing the RSS feed. The same thing happened last time they did it; when we set the RSS feed for the new location, the autoposting software no longer recognizes any of the existing posts as "old" and reposts them all (requiring Stratics to have to delete all the repeats).

    One of these days I'm going to come up with a question that will stump you Basara.
    I don't know when it will happen, but it will. There's no way one person has that many answers crammed into one brain.

    So what you're saying is....The machine threat doesn't come from Stratics's news-bot, but from EA-Mythic's RSS bot?

    My God, we should have seen it all the time. All the clues were there.

    The only question now is, is it too late?

    Not gonna help - one of you will take a cell phone, and the terminators will just have the nuke home in on your cell signal in the middle of nowhere.... :p
