irccat is now running on Babbage, to help link IRC to things happening in the space

It's called robonaut. If you wish to add commands to it, drop scripts in /usr/share/irccat on Babbage.

Starting Robonaut

To start robonaut, from babbage run the following commands:

# /etc/init.d/irccat start

For some bizzaro reason, irccat requires a TCP connection to localhost (and doesn't time out if it can't establish one), so I've also run this:

$ sudo ip6tables -I INPUT 2 -i lo -j ACCEPT

Robonaut Commands

Robonaut will respond to the commands below either publicly in the irc channel or privately. To get robonaut to respond publicly simply send one of the commands prefixed with a ? e.g. ?beacons. For a private response use /msg e.g. /msg robonaut ?dc
