[05:43:35] <chromas> Bytram: the service bots don't work that way
[06:24:36] <Bytram> chromas: I was starting to get that impression...
[06:25:16] <Bytram> so, how *can* I get Bender to pay attention over here?
[06:25:46] <chromas> You need admin privileges in Bender's config file to send him around
[06:26:13] <chromas> As for the service bot, first you need to register the channel, then talk to BotServ
[06:28:24] <chromas> /msg chanserv register #US_Election
[06:28:53] <chromas> (You're the only opped one in the channel so nobody else can sneak the channel away)
[06:39:09] <Bytram> chromas: Okaay, I just did: /msg chanserv register #US_Election
[06:39:27] <Bytram> -ChanServ- #US_Election is now registered to martyb.
[06:40:22] <Bytram> thank you
[07:01:25] <chromas> now /msg botserv botlist and pick a bot name
[07:16:39] <Bytram> O_O
[07:17:23] <chromas> You could make one named O_O
[07:18:23] <Bytram> So, I see 11 private bots avail and 16 more general(?) bots
[07:18:37] <chromas>
[07:19:13] <Bytram> IIRC the Greek-named bots are all different personas of the same bot?
[07:19:29] <Bytram> Athena, Aphrodite, Apollo, etc.
[07:19:31] <chromas> They're all the services bot
[07:19:46] <chromas> Private and pubic
[07:20:05] <Bytram> I see what you did there
[07:20:31] <chromas> lol: Chef (Chef@ircservices.sylnt.us) [400TB]
[07:20:37] <chromas> We need a Khyber bot :D
[07:20:51] <Bytram> NOOOOOoooooo!!!!
[07:21:24] <chromas> So anyhows, you can assign one of those'ns or make a new one if they're not cool enough for you
[07:21:56] <Bytram> so, if those Greek bots are all different personas of the same bot, how do I create a new persona for that bot?
[07:22:10] <chromas> /msg botserv help bot
[07:23:09] <Bytram> That helps
[07:24:20] <chromas> /msg botserv bot add Spankules Spankules Greece Grease
[07:24:41] <Bytram> So, how, for example, was Athena set up?
[07:24:45] <chromas> or how about a Trump bot? Let him win something for once
[07:25:00] <Bytram> Not on my watch
[07:25:08] <chromas> no that's Neptune
[07:25:24] <chromas> Probably /msg botserv bot add Athena Athena dodekatheon.olympus.gr Athena
[07:25:41] <Bytram> No, "Neptune" is the second EP by Amy Allen
[07:25:52] <Bytram> =)
[07:26:42] <Bytram> So, by analogy, this should work: /msg botserv bot add Agamemnon Agamemnon dodekatheon.olympus.gr Agamemnon
[07:26:55] <chromas> yep
[07:27:09] <chromas> I see the add
[07:27:31] <Bytram> -BotServ- Agamemnon (Agamemnon@dodekatheon.olympus.gr) [Agamemnon] created.
[07:28:04] <Bytram> now do I need to /invite the bot?
[07:28:17] <chromas> assign with /msg botserv assign #channel
[07:28:20] <chromas> oh
[07:28:32] <chromas> assign with /msg botserv assign #channel botname
[07:29:15] <Bytram> -BotServ- #channel is not registered.
[07:29:48] <Bytram> lol
[07:29:57] -!- Agamemnon [Agamemnon!Agamemnon@dodekatheon.olympus.gr] has joined #US_Election

[07:31:01] <chromas> cool
[07:31:24] <Bytram> :: sad face:: why can I no ++ you?
[07:31:33] <chromas> no Bonder
[07:32:07] <chromas> you can try pming him a !join command. I don't have Bender permissions and I dunno if you do
[07:32:07] <Bytram> Who's on first?
[07:32:32] <chromas> Me
[07:32:38] <chromas> I'm on first. You're thinking of whom
[07:33:30] <Bytram> I just tried that, no response
[07:33:39] <chromas> You've gotta be an ircop to create bots so you don't have to worry about Loggie spwaning new ones
[07:33:51] <Bytram> Whom am I thinking of?
[07:34:03] <chromas> you're thinking of what now
[07:34:13] <chromas> gonna have to ssh in and edit Bender's config file(s)
[07:35:14] <Bytram> too much magic ju ju for me to risk trying that... that's Deucalion's bailiwick
[07:36:08] <Bytram> besides, if he starts seeing me gain some proficiency there, I might find myself bestowed with other duties and responsibilities
[07:36:30] <chromas> Nah, that's my job
[07:36:48] <chromas> Not the responsibilities, but bestowing them upon you
[07:36:59] <Bytram> lol

[22:30:57] <requerdanos> spoiler, they score even worse than CNN
[22:31:24] <Bytram> Looks totally impartial to me! But, it does raise a question, Certainly, if this happened in public, as asserted, there should be other corroborating sources?
[22:34:59] <Bytram> in case that was not apparent, my last comment was entirely tonge=in-cheek
[22:35:25] <requerdanos> "Overall, we rate The Gateway Pundit Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of conspiracies, and numerous instances of publishing false (fake) news."
[22:51:54] <Runaway1956_> Impartial judges can't score anyone much lower than CNN
[23:07:50] <requerdanos> yeah, it took a real stinker of a site to score worse than CNN.
