For a while now I have been meaning to work on an IRC bot for the Hive13 IRC room hosted on freenode.net (Webchat Link). A bot would enable us to better tie the chat room into the other communication mediums we use as a group. As it stands now we are fractured into 3 major communication groups:
- Mailing List
- IRC Room
With numerous smaller less utilized mediums:
- Google Calendar
- Hive13 Blog
- Hive13 Wiki
There are of course people that utilize all of these communications mediums, but there are also people that tends to stick to only one or two of them. The bot could help tie the other communication mediums into the IRC room while also tieing the chat room back into the communication loop.

The framework of PVC pipe has been cut and fitted together. We are currently in the assembly phase of the project. RGB LED strands need to be soldered together and tested.
We have had some issues with crosstalk in Cat-5 cables and problems with bad RGB LEDs. We are attempting to remedy (or at least alieviate) the crosstalk problem by using Cat-3 cable for the anode wires (rather than the Cat-5). This means we will need to buy more Cat-3 sooner rather than later.
As for the RGB LEDs, the current strategy is lots of testing. We have gone through the LEDs and tested most of them for really bad failures however I suggest we test each LED after it has been soldered into its protoboard and again after it has been soldered into the strand. This can be done with a multimeter, if there is a resistance other than infinite from any cathode -> anode then the LED is probably bad.
