    Disconnecting the xbananax bot?

    Currently the D2 banana bot has logged: "1391 days, 2 hours, 44 minutes and 11 seconds" in channel.

    And that is just since the last time the account was left to expire. I think back when Xey had it, it was up around 600-800 days before it was left to expire and had to start back at zero.

    This thing is old! I actually still have daily chat logs from back in 2007 (the really old stuff is on an old harddrive in my closet somewhere).

    Anyway, I won't be continuing to run it after D3 is released (maybe we will need to run something new? who knows). So what do you guys think? Should we have a "gathering" in channel with all the oldies, have a beer and reminisce before I shut 'er down? Or should I just randomly hi the "disconnect" and "uninstall" buttons one day without warning?

    Seems we have reached the end of an era.

    Randomly disconnect it while there is a large gathering.

    I'm gonna keep the gauss bot running for the funsies...it's not a huge drain on my electric bill and there will be a few gauss members not playing D3 and still playing D2...oh and you might get bored and go back to D2 of course! I still play D2; was doing Ubers last night!

    Crap, I voted keep it running forever but that was just a knee jerk. I haven't been in channel for weeks anyway. So when is the party?

    Goodbye and thanks for all the fish!

    Seriously, thanks for keeping it going for so long. I wasn't in channel a LOT but I always really appreciated the bot.



    Eschew obfuscation!

    Re: Disconnecting the xbananax bot?

    Part of me is surprised at the lack of interest in this... but maybe I am the only one who is so nostalgic about it. And the other part of me understands that nobody really cares about this old dead horse anymore.

    Anyway, it is done.

    I used a good command as the last:
    [11:31:30 AM] <Hp_Sauce> .poo
    [11:31:30 AM] <xbananax YummMMMM~!>

    And the final uptime (on the current account):
    [11:31:59 AM] Time Logged: 1400 days, 6 hours, 20 minutes and 36 seconds

    Thanks for the fun guys.
    Seriously, sometimes stuff that happened in the banana or D2 will pop into my head at random times while I am walking down the street and I can't help but laugh out loud about it... Good memories.

    Hopefully I'll see some of you in D3 one day, if my bank account says it's ok.

    -hps

    Man, think of all the commands we made for that thing. I really hope later down the road the implement something similar we can do in diablo 3.
