Drupal's IRC bot.module and Druplicon now support reminders
Every so often I'll ask Druplicon to remind me about something in the future, and then curse that I haven't yet written such functionality. Then everyone points and laughs at little ol' Morbus. Welp, NO MORE LAUGHING as that code has hit the CVS and Druplicon just now. From the integrated help: Reminders can be set with "BOTNAME: remind NICK (at|by|in|on) DURATION (about|how|that|to) MESSAGE". For example: "BOTNAME: remind Morbus in 1 hour and 6 minutes that his bot is awesome", "BOTNAME: remind me in 23 minutes to check my pot roast.", or even "BOTNAME: remind Monty on Wed, 12 May 2010 13:10:21 -0400 that this was when this code debuted."
