I have them
5 bots appeared on my AIM buddies list today. I'm using Pidgin (http://www.pidgin.im/) So far no messages from them so I'm not really bothered but it is puzzling if AOL deny responsibility.
This afternoon, someone was surreptitiously adding unauthorized chat buddies to AOL instant messaging clients running across the Web. Three separate Register employees noticed the offending buddies, which show up under the "AIM Bots" portion of the AOL buddy list, carrying the names "Prof Gilzot," "sharethisdotcom," "Spleak," …
[11:03:32 PM] Prof Gilzot: A rectangle has an area of 26 square inches. What is one possible value for its perimeter?
*Sam does some math*
High-School algebra tells us that C, D, or E are all valid answers.
I don't know where these test-prep questions came from, but D was wrong, that answer was E.
I say that a width and length of (7 - (23)^(-1)) and ( 26 / (7 - (23)^(-1)) ) seem to work just fine for a perimeter of 28 and an area of 26.
I decided I would share that with the creators or the tutors, and Googling prof gilzot yielded a stunningly small ONE Google "o" of results, half of which were foreign.
On http://www.profgilzot.com/ there was no 'contact us', nor any email addresses at all for that matter.
Silly silly people.
