Word of the Day 0.3

Version 0.2 of the Word of the Day script broke after Urbandictionary changed the source of the website. Version 0.3 works with the new source. Find it on the Projects page.

Some eggdrop tcl scripts

Since I began using the IRC about 3-4 years ago, I’ve come around to write a couple of scripts for my bot. They’re still not really stable nor user friendly, but they do what they’re supposed to. If I’ve got time and motivation, I might continue the development at some point.

One is a simple “battle/vote” script, that takes a set of candidates as argument and “calculates” the winner. The outcome is displayed in percent. You can battle anything: Batman vs Penguin, bananas vs mangos, youtube vs work vs coffee break. But if you throw in Chuck Norris in the fight, he’ll always win.

The other is a reminder script that someone actually might find useful. It can be set to remind anyone of anything at any time (not in the past, though). The time syntax is really liberal, you can tell it to remind you on a specific date and time or in a relative time in the future (like “5 hours”). You can also ask the script to show all active reminders and cancel reminders.

You can find some them on Github.
