Can you believe I was actually going to try to create the entire alphabet in Kremlin format using the whiteboard, but this is just crazy. :P

Thanks!

I was tempted to do the same. :P Would only require a modification of the teapot method(s).

I've been considering making a whiteboard library which would do two things:

1) Have persistent whiteboard objects, deleting an object will clear the entire board and redraw the old ones (no erase functionality for bots unfortunately)
2) Parse a font file, so I can draw text without hardcoding all the characters

However, while number 1 would be useful, it's not *that* useful, so I don't think I can be bothered. And I can't find any good info on how font files are structured, and proper research into this is beyond the scope of how much I can be bothered ;)

So I think I might just use this one...Thanks Monty :D

Side note: With all this talk in this forum, and an evident knowledge of programming, when are you gonna make a bot? ;)

Added the C++ version I wrote prior to making the Lua version.

Yeah, it's a shame the bots can't use erase. Could try requesting it I suppose.

I am tempted :P

I was tempted to offer somebody with proper coding skills $ for a bot, that would do what I am trying to accomplish. Of course, there'd be a standard NDA. :P

I still toy with the idea occasionally, but am put off by the probably 'too' high cost and lack of learning opportunity.
