Just cvs updated the bot and also reloaded the bot with the news.tcl at teh
bottom to see what happens.  As I replied to Tyler last night, the changes
he had me made did work, but as you pointed out and I did, the other parts
didn't.  So shall see what happens.

Also, something I noticed was this bot keeps thinking it's not on channel
when it really is.  Getting the oops, not on #channel message in the log.
But since I updated cvs just few minutes ago, will watch for it when I get
home from work today and see if it's doing the same thing.
