Today I've added the ability of using icons while in the Treemenu mode of Linuxconf. I have just changed some functions to pass the icon name around until it got into the treemenu module and then sent it to the GUI front-end. A little hack on gnome-linuxconf did the work at the front-end side. Following this line of improvements, I'm planning to add a splash screen or something like that soon. Icons would also be welcome in the web interface.
Besides that, I'm also playing with a Python IRC bot. It's not meant to be a war or a channel control bot. I'm planning to implement useful modules to help making IRC even more useful as an information media (no it won't be just another infobot clone). The core and a few modules are ready. I'll post more information later... for now, I'll just tell that it is a multi-channel, multi-server bot, and that I'm trying to make its commands with natural language (eg. forward messages from #blah on servername to #bloh on servername).
Happy birthday Diogo!!
