JanusNode 3.0 unleashed

February 7, 2012

Computer poets of the world, rejoice! Janus has released a new version of JanusNode, “the king of poetry generators.”

Even better, he started a twitter stream in which “All future tweets will be computer generated by JanusNode”! #youGottaCheckItOut!!!

Anyway, the interface looks more or less the same…

Except for that “donate” button there… whassa matter Janus, Canadian TT-fac jobs don’t pay that much? (just kidding J, #giveTheManSomeCash, all right folks?)

Unfortunately a couple of the JanusNode scripts I wrote earlier seem to have problems on the new version…. Socratic Dialogues fail on every other turn and Shakespearean part-of-speech templates work but with a terrible lag, at least on windows. I’ll have to go through and check everything. One of these days.

At any rate, if you haven’t looked it over before, now’s a great time to try out JanusNode, and if you’ve tried it before, this is your chance to fall in love all over again. Check it out at janusnode.com!

    It seems to me that if the creator of JanusNode has a tt-Fac position, his time must be very valuable and hence should be well-compensated for by users of JanusNodes.

    Yours-
    Janus

    P.S. Yeah, yeah, I’ll fix those problems for ya.

    Oh dear you’re right… I’m just jealous cause it’s my fourth year on the job market and I’m still getting nothing but postdocs… Meanwhile, you’re sitting up there with your tenure and your free health care and your charter of rights and freedoms, gleefully watching the millions pour in through paypal…

    Anyway. You should make it a bit more fun. How about a “donate” button that pops up a window with a randomly-generated suggested donation, and/or a template-generated note of gratitude to be sent to you?

    P.S. Yeah, yeah, I’ll fix those problems for ya.

    So it wasn’t my fault? Yay! Don’t worry about fixing it tho, I’ll come up with something new instead.

    ALL HAIL JANUS!

    I am very impressed with the “be extra-brilliant” button and its documentation.

    Everything is fixed now, and I have released up-to-date versions of JanusNode (3.04) for both Windows and Mac. There was a new bug in 3.0 that slowed things down terribly if there were a lot of rules, as in the Shakespeare generator. Thanks for pointing this out.

    Thanks for the excellent find “eddeaddad”. The program is surprisingly interesting and fun (even if ~1/20 of the stuff is actually good– that’s random for you), I’m a bit of a word geek so this is great.

    Thanks Charles. Let us know the good stuff.

    Janus is an old-school pioneer; we are but midgets at his feet.
