Craigslist Matchmaker

Automated End User

Record key presses and mouse movements over a long period of time for a single user. Then, simulate the user using a Markov model acting as an attractor. Variation: No modeling, just repeating. Record mouse movements and key presses while writing an application to play back mouse movements and key presses. When complete, start the playback program based on the recorded data. The program will write itself, and then execute itself, indefinitely.
