    I’ve personally written an IRC bot with the Shazbot framework, and I had a lot of fun. Bash isn’t a lot of people’s first choice for network servers, but the simple IRC protocol is a decent match for bash’s text-processing abilities.

    If you’re on Freenode (where the #lobsters channel is), feel free to say !help to snesbot. :)
