For the benefit of those of you who don't surf by the ALICE Foundation for Alice news periodically, I thought I'd take a moment to announce the CherieBot. Created by our friend and forum member CHer Spencer, the Cheriebot uses Yahoo Widget technology to let you put a Pandorabot on your desktop as a desktop app. The widget will store the bot id #s of several Pandorabots, and you can choose bewteen any you have stored. Version 2, the current version, now features TTS with a prompt when the widget first opens to choose a default voice of your liking. Click on the interface for other options. It's a pretty handy utility if you want to be able to chat with your bot without having to open a webpage. It does require the Yahoo Widget Engine, but that's not a bad thing, lol, as there are literally hundreds of widgets, ranging from utterly useless to very handy. In addition to the CherieBot there are likely to be enough other widgets of interest to make it a worthwhile download. Get the CherieBot from the ALICE A.I. Foundation and the Yahoo Widget Engine from Yahoo! Widgets . And if you enjoy the CherieBot Widget, drop CHer an email and tell her. She put in a lot of time and effort to create such an interesting and useful toy for us to play with and enjoy.
