FIBS Bot News for 23rd Jun 1998


Someone appears to be registering the names of expired FIBS bots and indicating in their "whois" address field that they are neural networks. The following names have been registered:

They all log in from the network 129.70.12.x, which appears to be at Bielefeld University, Germany.

Seeing someone logged in from the same network, I asked them if they knew about this but they said they didn't. Maybe it's someone having fun, or maybe we'll see a whole rash of new bots under old names. If you find out anything interesting, mail me.

As always, if you want to know whether you're inviting a bot or a human who's taken a dead bot's name, check the status of the bots on the main FIBS Bots Page.
