Modular "chat" style bot similar to Mozbot. Originally written in 2000, gained modularity in 2001. Fully "pluggable" interface module, so it could talk to Opennap or IRC or http, or whatever.
Additionally, I've been working on some natural language parsing. It spent quite a lot of time sitting on freenode before it was freenode, just listening. Gathering conversation. Imagine infobot with an ability to "pull" information rather than just have key => value pairs.
Written in perl and sql.
Developed on Solaris.
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
