Have you ever wondered how to write your own IRC Bot? Well, its not a big deal, unless you know the basics. Bots are set of scripts that appears to IRC users as another user but performs automated functions.
We have Hamster working from command line, but dying in panel on (some?) 64 bit machines due to some threading issues or something and I totally can’t find the instructions i remember reading and using two years ago on how to debug applet once in panel.
