Python IRC Bot in the Works

Saturday, December 5th, 2009

*** Update ***: Main page for bot here

I am currently writing a small, fast, small-footprint IRC bot in Python. More details as I finish the bot. The functions created so far:

  • Help (Displays Help)
  • Echo (Echo back a message)
  • Say (Send a message to a channel)
  • Spam (Send a message to a channel a specified amount of times)
  • Join (Join a channel)
  • Part (Part a channel)
  • Authorization (username+password)
  • Deauthorization
  • User lookup
  • Raw (Use raw IRC commands)
  • Uptime (Display uptime)
  • Math (Do math functions with Yacas)

Planned functions:

  • Encrypted passwords
  • Data storage, either in a text file or a MySQL DB
  • Channel mode control

This bot is not meant to be a complex bot, it is intended to be a fast, light bot that can be easily reprogrammed.

Roundicity Theme

Friday, July 24th, 2009

The WordPress theme Roundicity that I made (well, actually modified, read the style.css file) is sort of complete, just needs better IE support. If you want to help, just send me an email. (

Feedback is welcomed in the comments, along with any questions you might have.

This theme does not work well in IE6. If you have IE6 users visiting your site, you should probably tell them to upgrade.

If you want to install Debian on an external drive, you can follow these instructions. THis has the advantage of being portable and persistent, and works for hard drives and flash drives.
