I got irritated of getting kicked off irc around 20 times and the associated ghosting and renicking. So I sat down and wrote something that would keep me t3rmin4t0r on freenode.
import re,xchat nick_pat = re.compile(":(?P<nick>[^!]*)!(?P<user>[^@]*)@(?P<host>.*)") def renick(*args): nickhost = args m = nick_pat.match(nickhost) if(m.groups() == "t3rmin4t0r"): xchat.command("nick t3rmin4t0r"); xchat.hook_server('QUIT', renick)
Load that up with /py load ~/.xchat2/pylugins/re-t3.py and now I can stop worrying about being stuck as a mere gopal__ on irc.--
Who steals my purse steals trash; ’tis something, nothing;
