Join The Ruby Resistance and help fight back against the evil #COBOTS:
play.cobots.org:23

Ah so this is an internet explorer game. gotcha.

It would be disingenuous to call ie a web browser.
I’ll have to check it out later. telnet is blocked here.

Erm, what?

Maybe I’m missing some sarcasm, but Telnet has nothing whatsoever to do
with
IE. I just opened a terminal on Linux and typed ‘telnet
play.cobots.org’…

“Locating a cache of rubies for you to save…”

Seems the Cobots have stolen all the rubies :slight_smile: Nothing happening!

“Connection closed by foreign host.”

Seems the Cobots cut me off :frowning:

Looks like I missed the fun :frowning:

Whyday was one day only. :wink:

The COBOTS have been driven back for now. Who knows if they have really
been vanquished for good though…

Damn. I was away from this list for a few months, and I missed the
announcement for Whyday. In fact, I signed up again the very next day
after it (using a different address this time, for those who keep
track).

How sad for me. . . .
