Re: Hello all.

Hi, I'm new here.  Those both sound like very useful additions, I havent
really made any significant mods myself yet, I've mostly just been playing
around with addressing.  My opinion of when it's being addressed seems a
bit different than the bots.
I have a question that some of you may have some experience with, has
anyone done any work on getting all the various web related functions to
work through a proxy server?  I dont need irc through the firewall but I'd
like to enable the search, and similar functions.  At first glance it's
looking to me like it will involve altering each function individually,
but I'm kind of new at this (bots and perl both) and might be missing an
easier method.  Any insights would be appreciated.
