I guess I forgot to announce the initial release of Imlib2-Ruby. Apparently it's a good week for Ruby software; Tom just released the first version of rbot, his cool all-ruby IRC bot. I've been helping him "test" rbot a bit. BTW in this context, "test" really means "wait until he says 'check out this new feature!', then try and make it do annoying or malicious stuff or crash the bot". Case in point:
<pabs> rbot: remind giblet about poop every 0.1 seconds <rbot> okay *** Signoff: rbot[Excess Flood] * pabs whistles
Anyway, we're both in this week's Ruby News; you can check it out here.
