    I added the poor guy as a friend, but he’s not online(or he didn’t accept me).

  2. Mark says:

    hey shaudius, that’s weird. which instant messenger are you using?

  3. Shaudius says:

    I’m using MSN. I tried adding him to Gtalk just now and none of them show as online. I was originally using Pidgin, and thought that might be the problem, so I logged directly into MSN, sure enough the contact was in the list but not online.

  4. Mark says:

    strange. i just had someone add him to gtalk and it worked fine. lemme find someone to add him to msn and get back to you…

  5. Shaudius says:

    Its working on GTalk now, but its still not working on MSN.

    Awesome! I’ve been waiting for this for a while, especially because cleaning up my direct messages in Twitter is a pain. It’s so convenient to get this information on my mobile IM.

    Thanks so much, Mark, even though this interconnection will undoubtedly speed the onset of the Robot War by at least two baseball seasons.

  7. John says:

    Ok, little feature request. Could RUWTbot maybe understand the keyword “yesterday” to give the scores at the end of last night? No need to go beyond that into the past, but if just want a quick rundown of what happened in the late games, it would be nice to get them that way.

  8. Mark says:

    Ooo, I like that. I think I can get that up soon. Also, looks like RUWTbot’s MSN account is a bit finnicky so you Messenger folks will have to be just a bit patient…

  9. Mark says:

    Okay MSN folks, I think the problems are resolved. Try re-adding and give me a yell if you have any trouble…

    hey mark, ‘nother request for you: maybe add timestamps to news results? This would make it easier to identify news that’s actually new.

  11. Mark says:

    hey bones, i can definitely add that in. i’m travelling this week, but i’ll have it up by the weekend at the latest…
