Status update

Currently I am working on improving the command line interface with transbot. Previously it was a bit clumsy and confusing so putting some standardization will help it be more user friendly. Eventually we want to get a basic GUI to run the program so it will be easy to use on the XO laptops without the command line. After doing some testing speed is definitely an issue that will have to be dealt with and at the moment the best looking solution is to implement the twisted framework.

  1. I don't think that running the bot on the xo should be a priority. Even implementing a gui could be cumbersome to a bot as bots generally live on a server.

    I think the primary goal of the project is to improve the command line, config file system, and maybe even some admin functions that can be configured over IRC.
