Rules Question

Postby utoxin » Tue Dec 20, 2011 8:41 pm

I had a thought today, after discovering a couple simple bugs in my AI that were essentially just configuration tweaks. I've checked the rules, and can't find anything about whether it's okay to access the internet or not. So my question is:

Would it be acceptable to have a configuration URL that it pulled key values from when it started up?

If my current AI had this, I would be able to fix the bug I found without having to submit a new version.

You wouldn't be able to initiate connections. There's a firewall preventing connections to/from the sandboxes.
