First, your password must be scrambled by using the "makepasswd" script in the
scripts directory.  You run it, type in your plaintext password, and it spits
back the garbage you enter for your password into the userfile.

There is no "login" or "ident" command.  To get the infobot to op you in any
channels it has ops on, you 

  /msg botnick password op

If the bot isn't learning from anyone, even you, then chances are two things
are wrong;  #1, your hostmask in your userfile is wrong, and/or #2, you don't
have a default user record.

UserEntry default {
        flags  +trm;

That will allow anyone to teach, remove, and modify factoids.
