Acidblood is not some drug or some lame band name. Yes, it is an IRC robot. I know there are probably tons of them out there, too bad. I wanted to write my own that I knew had no backdoors and would be easy to setup and fast. I initially wrote one in Perl, but that eventually turned out to be pretty slow. I wrote a second version in C, but I never had time to fix it and it core dumped a lot. I rewrote this version in C again, but it doesn't core dump, has reliable network code, and has all relevant data structures in memory to keep it from hitting the disk. I got the inspiration for the name from a cool Corrosion of Conformity song off of their second album.
