StatsServ is a little program which emulates an ever smaller IRC server (in regard to the commands it handles) and transfers statistics from IRC into a database. You can then use the data, for example, on a Web site where you want to display the latest statistics. Statistics consist of the uptime of each server in the network, a list of channels, including their topic (except for secret (+s) and private (+p) channels), and the number of users in the network. You can normally get these statistics via /stats u, /list, and /lusers (if /stats u is supported on the network and enabled for normal users).
Push Puppet Toy is a computer-controlled puppet that stands to attention when a friend joins an IRC channel or comes online on IM, and collapses when he leaves. The concept is very similar to the Availabot (http://availabot.com/), but works under Linux. Schematics, firmware for the puppet, and plugins for Gaim and XChat to control the puppet are provided.
wanha is a combination of an IRC bot to watch a channel for URLs and a Web interface to display the URLs that the bot finds. The bot will also warmly keep the conversation going, discreetly discouraging people from pasting already pasted URLs again. The Web interface can be used to track what URLs have already been pasted and by whom.
OtfBot is a modular IRC bot. It has modules to respond to !commands, answer to keywords, post RDF headlines in the channel, kick users because of bad words, interact with the user with an A.I. (megahal and others), display 8-ball quotes, and much more. New plugins can be created in minutes.
