@Dilbert_ebooks

Yet another twitter bot. I did this as a web project a long time ago, and turned it into a twitter bot to see how difficult it would be to write one of those. (Answer: about 15 lines of shell for the comic assembly and 10 lines of python to post to twitter.) It generates and posts a new randomly-assembled comic strip every eight hours.

Demake Bot

Link finding things

Doo doo doo! This is Link finding things on the web and holding them up for you to see, as he does! Except he's doing it on Twitter instead of your NES, which doesn't even work unless you hold in the cartridge a certain way.

Otherfoot: Only Pen and Paper Required

I put together a website dedicated to my all-time favorite game, Otherfoot (mentioned previously in my 2006 FPP about ink-and-paper games). Otherfoot is a card game, played with a newly-created homemade deck every time. Gameplay is similar to Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity (pre-dating the latter), with key differences laid out in the FAQ (and reposted below). The game concept was developed by friends of my brother, and I've derived a lot of joy from playing Otherfoot with old and new friends for more than 10 years. [more inside]

TauntBot

TauntBot is an exercise in generated language. It uses a rather huge and growing corpus of hand-selected words, and an interesting set of rules, for hand-crafting them into verbose insults. It then posts these to Twitter. It replies to people, I'm hoping to get it to trade barbs with them. Yes, I'm a terrible person. Now, with that out of the way... [more inside]
