# 8  
For those interested in the tech, here is the start of the tech writeup on this application:

Programming a Telegram Bot Using Node-RED, PHP, and MySQL

Also, FYI, testing has been going great so far 449 questions answered:

Code:
mysql> SELECT COUNT(1) from neo_telegram_trivia;
+----------+
| COUNT(1) |
+----------+
|      449 |
+----------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

and so far 1961 interactions with this telegram bot:

Code:
mysql> SELECT COUNT(1) from neo_telegram_bot_receiver;
+----------+
| COUNT(1) |
+----------+
|     1961 |
+----------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Thanks all who have been playing and testing so far!

Update.

Testing has gone well and this Telegram bot app is working well.

But for now, it looks like few people are using Telegram and not really interested to install Telegram to play computer trivia, at least so far.

If you have not tried it out yet, it is really a great way to kill time when you are stuck in the taxi or waiting in line Smilie

Works well.... and is fun, really!
