I’m So Crazy That I Need a Computer Therapist

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

If you have read my posts or know me in person, you already know I am one of the ‘weird ones.’ But, the price of therapy is too much for me to pay. Or maybe I just don’t feel like it.

My computer does a lot for me. Its like a little attachment to my brain. And, now I know how to make it listen to me like a therapist would.

In the Mac Terminal (or at any command line), type emacs, hit Enter, press Escape, type “xdoctor” (no quotes).
What you get: An interactive dialogue with a shrink named Eliza. To get out of it, hit Control+X Control+C.

Try it out. You know you need the help…
