Topic: Colons vs. Semicolons

posted 1/11/2011  08:14Send e-mail to userReply with quote
While working with Prentiss through Alan, there does not seem to be a distinction in the display when I type a colon or a semicolon; both are registered in the interface display as colons.

Is this what is actually being recorded, or is this simply a glitch in the interface? It doesn't seem to be occuring on the MyBot interface.

Seing that a good number of Prentiss' responses contain semicolons, I wanted to make sure that it was those that were being referenced in the training and not a new generation of responses containing colons in their place.

Low activity here on the hal forums...
Funny how you thought exactly the same!
I, too am curious to know the answer to this question...

Oh, I did notice that myself. I posted something on another thread about prentiss' interesting behavior, but that's something I forgot to mention. "she" said the same thing twice, not back to back from some distance apart, when I told her to come up with a phrase all her own, they didn't quite make sense but they were identical, except once she used a colon, and the second time it was a semicolon. hmmm.
