 * This bot is basically a very boring simple chatroom
 * bot that sits in a chatroom and responds to three
 * commands which are:
 * !story
 * !random
 * !time
 * To get it working:
 * (1) Configure username and password
 * (2) Start up script
 * (3) Talk to bot(s) and say join <chatroom> - example: join bluetoctest
 * (4) Try bot in chatroom
require_once "bluetoc/EventHandlers/ObjectBased.php";
