RafikLjL, it's ok here when the window width is enough large15:35
Rafikusing xchat15:35
LjLRafik: it works in my irc client too (konversation), but in the console, the arabic letters are reversed in order15:36
LjLdoesn't really matter for me, though15:36
Rafiknext step for us is to build an Arabic version of infobot15:37
LjLRafik: (an outdated version of) our bot's code can be found at https://code.launchpad.net/~dennis/ubuntu-bots/main15:40
Picihttps://code.edge.launchpad.net/~tsimpson/ubuntu-bots/tweak is the most up-to-date code.15:42
Rafikgreat :) thank you :)15:42

Rafikgood.. I think it will be useful in many loco channels15:45
Rafikanother question, is there any way to get Mootbot for loco teams meetings ?15:46
LjLRafik: it would seem so, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ScribesTeam/MootBot15:47

KtronIf there are operators available to throw me a minute or two of thoughts about what its like to be an Ubuntu IRC Op and why they bother, I would greatly appreciate it-- I'm working a column describing IRC (positively), in particular Freenode and it's open source communities, to people who are currently oblivious to the efforts that go on behind the scene.23:26
LjLKtron, for me the foundamental aspect is not having anything better to do than being on irc all the time. once you are on irc all the time, you might (depending on your character i suppose) either be happy with just chatting, or start to have a thing for helping "making things work", or work better23:37
LjLwhy bother being an op - well aside from "because i more or less like it", and "because it's supposed to be useful to others", it gives you a few insights on how the dynamics of a group work23:38
LjLand while there are aspects of a group that are probably just the same with every group, i think irc is unique under some difficult-to-define aspects23:38
KtronDifficult-to-define aspects, like the makeup of the groups of people who come here and the sorts of intentions they have?23:40
LjLwhat it's like - mostly it's about little things, and well too often it becomes *wasting hours* on very little things, but if/when you manage to escape from those and see the picture from more distant (which i think is the hardest to achieve), then it can become... well, spending hours on little things *that are important*. changing things in the channel subtly, in ways that someone who doesn't know irc deeply, i believe, can rarely appreciate23:41
LjLKtron: that, but also the dynamics among the operators themselves, and with the regular users23:42
LjLregular as in the ones who're not operators but are around all the time23:42
KtronLjL, how long have you been an Op yourself? I'm curious, did you run into awkward moments at all when regular users who've been here longer than you acted up?23:44
LjLKtron: one second, there is a mess in #ubuntu with bots23:44
* Pici agrees with LjL on most points23:47
PiciI'd contribute, but I'm just running out the door, sorry.23:47
KtronPici, I appreciate it anyway23:50
LjLKtron, i think i've been an op since second quarter 200523:51
LjLand, yes23:51
