A friend of mine recently discovered and installed yet another irc bot, but this one was special :-).

The irc bot he installed is called gozerbot and is written in python. It has many features (implemented in modules) of which one module was very interesting, or at least very funny. This module is called ‘markov’ and it learns from what you say in a channel, or you can feed it existing logfiles of conversations. Then, based on the Markov chain (or at least I think so) it will reply meaning(ful/less) sentences. These replies can be triggered by !markov, it’s nick or a join, on the sites documentation an option ‘loud’ seems to exist but it is not available in the latest stable code nor in the svn code.

Here some example quotes: WARNING ALL QUOTES ARE IN DUTCH and yes we had an enormous funny evening
