Should okswbot retire?

You probably don’t know OKSWbot, my bot, based on Mozbot, that hangs out in #bots, #classicrock, #astronomy, #flame and #oksw (most activity is in #bots, the other channels are empty) on irc.mozilla.org.

OKSWbot has some problems, like it has a non-functioning Infobot Module (defective AnyDBM_File Perl module?).

Mozbot is not even used in #bmo on irc.mozilla.org, the bot “bugbot” is a supybot.

I have added a new bot, OKSbot, which is based on supybot. I chose supybot because both fedbot and zodbot (both bots for Fedora IRC channels) are based on supybot.

I just set him up today, and I haven’t even gotten used to supybot.

If you might have any supybot knowledge, feel free to share it through the comments.

Posting here from ScribeFire

In case you don’t know what ScribeFire is, it’s an addon for Firefox that lets a user write posts from the bottom of Firefox without ever leaving the web page you’re on. You can get it at http://tinyurl.com/yrnml6.

ScribeFire allows you to post to blogs such as WordPress and Blagger. This blog, in fact, is supported by WordPress. What I would like to know is if it is possible to post to this blog. The site editor can reply to this post by including a list of steps to set up ScribeFire to post to here.

UPDATE (6/15/2009 @ 7:20): The site editor has replied

OKS Blog is powered by WordPress 2.9-rare (as I write this comment).

Setting up ScribeFire to post to OKS Blog is easy.

Just use http://oks.verymad.net/~onekopaka/blog/ as the URL and your username and password to login to the Admin interface here.

UPDATE (6/15/2009 @ 16:25)

Hmmm… I’m trying it out and it doesn’t seem to be working. When I try to load a post, it refuses to load. I just have to try publishing a new post.

16:30 – ScribeFire can now post (I sent a test post), but can’t edit. Looks like Mr. VanBuren will have to work this out.

Why Windows Sucks

This is why Windows sucks for developers:

A snapshot of what the Firefox Tinderbox looked like.

Look how long it takes Windows to build!

Linux could probably build 5 times in the time Windows takes to build once.

OS X could do at least 3 builds.
