Well -- as it happens 2D and ebugle's visits are almost up. Posting should pick up after that.

I've been rewriting jar for a bit now as a modular bot -- it seems like the biggest problem with IRC bots is that debugging them requires lots of join/parts.

I started to write it with perl threads. I'd had good experiences writing with perl threads in the past and used them to write an mp3 stream for myself. What I hadn't done was looked into how they're implemented. Each instance starts up a separate interpreter for execution.

I eventually got it working to my satisfaction, but in disgust, I've started writing one which does a fork()/exec() and communicates by way of a named pipe.

It ain't pretty, but at least it's something!

Haha, I've been doing the same in regards to Tom and Bugle being here. I'm writing the quickest e-mails to people. Stuff like, "Sorry I can't really respond in depth right now, but give me another week and I should be able to!" I imagine my posting will also pick up.
