Noisebot is our irc bot. It occasionally does useful and/or annoying things.

It hangs out in #noisebridge and #nycresistor. You can ask him to tell people things across the two channels.

We're currently in an uptime contest with #nycresistor's bot.

Useful Commands

02:40 < radii> noisebot, note ioerror this is a test.
