I'll need write a shell script. I hope you don't mind waiting a bit, I 
don't want to show you a bad script.

The shell script I have in mind is an IRC bot that uses Netcat to talk 
to the IRC server, and a while loop (the event loop) in bash that's 
forked off from the terminal, but can be killed via killall coybot.sh.

I'll need to rewrite it.
