Tell us about yourself!
The real problem was that I was using git bash shell and that was causing me not to see responses - that's why I replied to myself saying that. And using ##channel is not a problem; It's not what most people want, but it's valid on IRC - /join ##channel on IRC will not give you any errors. (You will just be in a channel called "#channel" instead of "channel.") In addition, this instructable TELLS you to use it, so I was not wrong. See step 1:# cfg.py...CHAN = "#channel" # the channel you want to join
WELP - turns out you should not run Python scripts through GitBash bash shell. This bot wasn't working right, and neither was virtualenv for python when using GitBash. smh - Okay windows cmd... I'll use you. /sigh.
So I have the bot joining the channel, but there is a 2 minute delay (I think it's exactly 2 minutes) - and the same happens when killing python, the bot takes 2 minutes to PART. Why would this be? (I also have no responses coming in on the socket, and can't send/chat to channel.) - Thoughts?
