My echo bot has received a bit of attention since my last post.
Add email@example.com to your jabber/gtalk friends, and you can see what I mean.
Note that it currently doesn’t automatically restart itself when it goes down. This is so that I can try to debug crashes rather than leaving them unnoticed. If firstname.lastname@example.org seems unresponsive, try email@example.com for now, and send me an email. I will try to add a watchdog bot soon, so that we can have a more reliable service, but I’m dancing all this weekend.
