"Maybe he doesn't know anything about computers except for how to write and modify autohotkey coding."
Wow. Just wow.
Massive, massive thread. Poker Bots. Cheating at poker. What else do you want?
I just finished the entire thread and am blown away.
With the CORRECT link now. That's what I get for Guinness-fueled blogging.
NL Bots on Full Tilt
They do have 3 people signed in. They have an automated script running dictating action on every street. The human then clicks the button.
This allows them to be exonerated by FTP for botting.
The statistics say it's a computer making a decision. The fact that they're able to fly under the radar says it's a human clicking the button.
Chuck can admit to everything here except the script running because it would violate the T&C.

I might try to get a mini uber post up before tonight's Mookie. Time is against me, however, as I have to prepare for a fishing trip tomorrow.
But I meant to post this news article last evening but passed out.
Famed Cincinnati restauranteur, Jeff Ruby, threw OJ out on his ass.
O.J. tossed from steakhouse on Derby eve
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The owner of an upscale steakhouse in Louisville said he asked
O.J. Simpson to leave his restaurant the night before the Kentucky Derby because he is sickened by the attention Simpson still attracts.
"I didn't want to serve him because of my convictions of what he's done to those families," Jeff Ruby said in a telephone interview Tuesday. "The way he continues to torture the lives of those families ... with his behavior, attitude and conduct."
Simpson, an NFL Hall of Famer and Heisman Trophy winner, was found innocent in 1995 of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman but was found liable in a civil trial that followed.
Ruby — who owns restaurants in Cincinnati, Louisville and Belterra, Ind. — said Simpson, who was in town for the Derby on Saturday, came in with a group of about 12 Friday night and was seated at a table in the back. A customer came up to Ruby and was "giddy" about seeing Simpson, Ruby said.
"I didn't want that experience in my restaurant," Ruby said, later adding that seeing Simpson get so much attention "makes me sick to my stomach."
He said he went to Simpson's table and said, "I'm not serving you." Ruby said when Simpson didn't respond, he repeated himself and left the room.
Ruby said Simpson soon came up to him and said he understood and would gather the rest of his party to leave.
Simpson's attorney, Yale Galanter, said the incident was about race, and he intended to pursue the matter and possibly go after the restaurant's liquor license.
"He screwed with the wrong guy, he really did," Galanter said by telephone Tuesday night.
Ruby said the incident had to do with Simpson's past.
"It was the first time since 1994 he has ever shown any class," Ruby said. "He showed it that night in the restaurant" by leaving quietly.
Ruby said after Simpson left, people in the restaurant started applauding him. He said he has received about 100 positive e-mails since the incident.
The walls of Ruby's restaurants are decorated with celebrity photos. A photo of Simpson and Ruby used to be on display, but Ruby said he took it down after the killings.
Edit: Legal opinion - OJ's ejection legal.

Well, it's something.
Rep. Berkley introduces gambling study bill
Online gambling seems to be on the forefront of more than a few minds of Congressmen, as Rep. Shelley Berkley has followed up the introduction of legislation last week by Rep. Barney Frank with another Internet gambling bill.
Berkley (D-Nev.) introduced H.R. 2140 in the House of Representatives Thursday.
The bill asks for a study to be done by the National Academy of Sciences to identify the proper response of the United States to the growth of Internet gambling. Her bill is cosponsored by 60 Congressman, including Frank.
The first action taken on the bill was to refer it to the three committees: Judiciary, Financial Services, and Ways and Means.
While Berkley has been in support of repealing an online gambling ban in the United States, she said in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "One of the advantages of this legislation is that it doesn't take a side. It doesn't say Internet gambling is good or bad. It says 'Let's study the issue.'"
Berkley is also a cosponsor for Frank's bill, H.R. 2046, the Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act of 2007, which seeks to set up legislation and licensing for online gambling operators.
Weee. Somehow I'm atop the leaderboard on that Battle of the Blogger tourney thingy. I saved myself a bounty by knocking Waffles out myself, but that's about all I remember.
Anyway, I'm 40 today.
My mom says I now get to trade in my psychological problems for physical ones.
Edit: Too damn funny. My buddy AlCan'tHang put up a sweet not-safe-for-work birthday post featuring lots of purty girls. Thanks, Al.

One quick silly anecdote before I pass out. A colleague in my office today was telling a story about when he worked at a pizza joint back in college.
Some guy called and started ordering his pizza, "I'd like a large pizza with sausage, pepperoni and mushrooms."
Suddenly my colleague could hear a woman screaming in the background, "You know I hate mushrooms, you asshole!"
Without missing a beat, the man ordering the pizza said, "Make that extra fucking mushrooms, please."
