I started adding random replies to PCC some updates ago.
It started out with just random sayings for start ups and shut downs.
Now with the User creatable command line option the possibilities are end less.
Currently PCC now has 18 possible reply text files to read randomly from.

Is anyone using them? If so How?
Has any one added more lines to them?
Have you created any new reply text files?

hey T

I have been looking in to the random replies but not realy sure how it all works.  Could you explain a little more and any pointers would help for us new non computer frendily users.  I guess he only place I use them right now is on startup and closing.

Random replies are a option in the User Created Commandline Arguments.
You create a command and in it have PCC read a text file. int the options for reading click random.
Save the command.
How you use the commands is totaly up to you. One user uses them with iHouse see: http://www.ihousehomeautomation.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=234#p1857
I included a few text files in the reply folder but you could make your own for any event you like.
If you do so remember PCC will only read one line so the reply has to be one line.
I beleive I've added a random stop reply for when you stop PCC from talking or playing a sound file.
If you have Windows 7 or Vista you can use them with WSR Macros and turn PCC into a chatbot with a little work.
I realy didn't design the option for any thing special just thought it would add some personality to the program for thouse wishing to play a little.
Maybe another user will jump in with how they're using them.
