This was a fun little hack that I wrote as both comic relief and as a test of rule-based scoring systems. With this application I deveoped a database-driven rule-based engine with which to categorize a body of text (specifically, a web log). The application worked well and was quite popular over its lifespan, with over 5000 people using it.

The site use to be located at emotastic.com, but I allowed the domain to lapse this year as its usage had begun to trickle off and didn’t see a need to keep it running. Instead, the site can now be found at its alternate URL.
