IRC gateway to Chatterbox?

Once I've joined a Chatterbox discussion, I'd sometimes like to keep participating without having to refresh my browser on the Monastery.... or at least be able to capture subsequent chatter for later perusal.

Has anyone done Chatterbox automated capture? Or better yet, provided a two-way IRC gateway?

      Great link. You can also check the How do I use this? link at the bottom of the Chatterbox nodelet which also mentions the Java Chatterbox, which is one of the client options that is the fastest to start using.

      But neither of these links appear to mention fullpage chat which is even easier to get started with.

      Any documentation cult members want to do an update?

    It's often nice to be at a very lightweight node if you're reloading just to keep up with the CB. The lightest-weight node I know of is The Default Node. I keep a link to it in my personal nodelet for convenience.

    I have a full featured chatterbox <-> IRC gateway bot, supporting two way communications, that I wrote for the chatterbox on everything2.com. I don't IRC anymore, and that bot was replaced by another (cleaner, but with less personality) bot. Right now I'm at a public access terminal, but I'll post my code Saturday (PST). It does require a fairly trusted host if you want to be able to send messages, as you have to tell it your password to send messages. Also, for people on it's admin list, it allows you to plug in new parser modules at runtime, without restart, in Perl from IRC. Which is fun, for modifying the AI based on conversational context, etc.

    It uses the chatterbox XML ticker, so it's bandwidth-friendly for the server.

    Here is a poem about ChatterBot that was posted on everything2.com.

    A poem for the chatterbot:
    
    When I tell you I love you
    <ChatterBot> I love you too, cureobsession.
    You tell me you love me back
    When I tell you I wuv you
    <ChatterBot> I wuv you too, cureobsession.
    You tell me you wuv me back
    When I tell you I hate you
    * ChatterBot asks cureobsession, 'what does hate mean?'
    You pretend to not know and ask, "What does hate mean?"
    But I know you know and I'm sorry
    Just know that I love you chatterbot!
    <ChatterBot> I love you too, cureobsession.
    Will you marry me?
    Saige said she wouldn't
    But thats alright
    All I need is you
    All I need is you
    * Chatterbot asks cureobsession 'what does need mean?'
    * Chatterbot asks cureobsession 'what does need mean?'
