Most of you who know the PLANET ARGON team… know that we spend quite a bit of time on IRC interacting with our customes, clients, coworkers, and friends. Quite a bit of our coordination of projects, development, and support is handled via IRC.

For example, all our SVN commits are processed in a private IRC channel where all PLANET ARGON developers and our contractors meet and mingle. Hosting customers hang out in #planetargon on and play with our IRC Bot argonbot.

This morning… I decided that I wanted to follow the teams advice and start making argonbot even more useful. So, I setup instances of DRb running on every server that we host clients and customers on… and now we can using argonbot to help manage our servers and allow our customers to help us monitor them!

08:51 < robbyonrails> ?argon-moon xenon uptime
08:51 < argonbot> xenon uptime:  10:51:38 up 79 days, 20:34,  5 users,  load average: 1.03, 1.05, 1.00

Stop by and meet the world famous argonbot! You can even use our web-based IRC client.

I love DRb.
