The ChatSpike IRC Network

ChatSpike is a medium sized internet relay chat network, with a multitude of channels with many different subjects.

On ChatSpike, you will find the official channels of the projects listed on this site. ChatSpike is also a project in itself, featuring some advanced services modules and internet relay chat development. ChatSpike currently has approximately 600 users over many channels and covers various topics including programming and gaming.

ChatSpike has been in operation and accepting public connections since 2000 and is still active to the present day, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and hosted on our own dedicated servers.

Don’t Feed The Bots

Don’t Feed The Bots is a project in comedy and artificial intelligence. Combining a chat bot with search engine results and some heuristics and a method of remembering entire conversations and recording them, this advanced IRC project has been unleashed into many large IRC networks to converse with people in the less desirable channels of IRC’s seedy underbelly.

Not for the faint of heart, prudish or those lacking a warped sense of humour, the logs recorded by this program are an interesting read if only to witness how easy it is to pass the turing test when the human’s mind is not on the subject at hand!

Please note that this particular project contains content which is of a sexual nature and may not be suitable for all viewers. Please use common sense when viewing the sites below.

Sporks, the Learning Scriptable Discord bot

Sporks is a bot originally for IRC, and now for discord, which learns from conversations and can reply if addressed.

The discord version supports scripting via JavaScript which allows it to do anything that the server owner wants it to do.

Sporks has its own web based dashboard that lets the sever owner configure it without need for editing configuration files.
