IRC question

You can have pidgin auto join channels when you log into an irc
server. Just right click on a saved irc channel from the buddy list
and choose 'Auto Join'.

I've made my own plugin where I can run irc commands on startup,
depending on what irc server you specify. I found this particularly
useful when channels need invite keys. Ie:

/msg Bot invite #channel $CHANNEL_INVITE_KEY

I haven't really made an interface for it, just for my own use. But I
probably will eventually. Right now, you have to add the irc command
in the code and recompile.

If you are comfortable with looking at C code, I can email it to you.
It's a little rough around the edges, but does the trick.
