More chatterbox history, a recap, and a new toy

Someone suggested that this would be a good idea so I implemented it. I've already been able to do this for a long time now with command-line-utility programs so this just opens the ability up to the rest of you. will show you everything that everyone has said since you last spoke up to twenty four hours. just shows you 24 hours of history somewhat like cbhistory except more.

Also, as a recap, the other locally hosted features are Markov-chaining Chatterbox, (which is sort of like cbhistory except that it is a little different), Chatterbox conversational clusters, and Wireless Access to Perl Monks Chatterbox.

See also the experimental streaming chatter at telnet:// This will live on when I get around to fixing it up to work with PM's MySQL install instead of my chat-watching daemon.

Some of you may be saved time searching for previous discussion on the archiving topic by pulling the node ids from this node's source.

See CB history - not an hour any more? for a discussion on whether these longer histories are acceptable or not.

Now with rot 13!

[Corion]: GotToBTru: Heh ;) I'm not really endorsing it, as I found that any gains made through it are easily squandered by the hours spent on configuring it. At least in my case :)
[GotToBTru]: Like most Swiss Army Knives, you can cut yourself trying to find the blade you actually want
[GotToBTru]: i am satisfied with the default settings turning the seemingly random formatting into something reliable
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, I started a quick(ly implemented but slowly running) implementation of a program that would guess the "best" configuration (that is, least amount of changes) from my code, but then found that it stops parsing the source as soon as it ..
[GotToBTru]: sadly, it can't do anything about this
[Corion]: ... encounters sub foo($bar,$baz) {, which is something I like nowadays
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, that stuff is hard to do away automatically ;)
[GotToBTru]: yeah, you mentioned it could not handle signatures
