    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.

    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.

    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.

    I haven't decided yet if I want to buy the game.

    T'is painful, though. I know that if I don't buy it, I'll be missing out on seeing bananas!

    I have to admit, I was on the fence about it too, until about a week ago when I got excited about it! So I won't judge you... but you will be missed if you decided never to buy it.

    Of course, if you buy it and spend the next 3 years in front of your computer... you might be missed by some other people in RL too?
