I’m trying to contact someone at AOL Instant Messenger’s Developer services to inquire about lifting the rate limits. (If you know anyone at AOL that can speed up this process, please let me know!) I’m not expecting much, so I’m trying to implement a new system that supports queued messages and several more bots.
In the meantime, you can play most of the Infocom collection in your web browser. (Java required.)
July 13, 2004: At some point, someone at AOL must have quietly flipped the switch that protects Infocombot, because it can no longer be warned or exceed rate limits! Whoever you are, thank you so much.
Also, I fixed a bug that prevented quote marks from working in the games. This affected two games, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (when typing the Vogon poetry) and Zork II (in the Riddle Room). This is resolved.
