Firebot Update

By on March 7, 2005 in Mozilla, Technology

In my last blog post about the bots, I mentioned combining them into one bot. Well, as of a few days ago, this is now done. 🙂 So I thought I’d blog a follow-up post about it, before moving on to more interesting things. It wasn’t exactly easy because of my inexperience with perl, but the new firebot seems to work decently.
If anybody wants the BotModule they can grab here… Its pretty rough in places, but it works.
In addition to adding the new module, I also applied the patch from Bug 248450 to give firebot SSL support, and made him set his unmode +B so the server knows he’s a bot. His /whois can’t get much longer. heh.
Lastly, anybody looking for /just/ the Firefox/Tbird, etc Bug Info, and don’t want to be in #firefox/#thunderbird and get confused with all the support,etc discussion. Feel free to join #firebot (formerly #wolfbot).

    intense writing. You’ve done some great work.
    When I went to Maine to take a sailing class, one of my fellow students was a guy who had been a startup programmer with Intel. In his 30’s he realized that he didnt have to work anymore. He also realized that there was a lot of world that he had never experienced. So he set out to try and make up lost time. You seem to have gotten to that place a lot earlier.
