Thank you that worked beautifully.
One more little thing though
Here's my setup.
I'm using another computer for serving and this computer for chatting.
this line of code is in Popups on this computer:
bot speak:/notice (bot's name) $?="Enter bot speak for $chan "
this line of code is on the bot's computer:
on 1:notice:*:?:/msg $chan $1-
the obvious problem here is the bot has no idea what channel to message to from the $chan identifier. Is there a way I can send that identifier to the bot's computer?
I do plan on adding a $nick check for obvious reasons also
