I know nothing about node. This was a playground that seemed to be liked. No warranties, no guarantees. I will however help you to the best that I can if you have any issues or find any bugs.
If you're more experienced than I am and want to tell me how to make this better in any way. I am all ears. Feel free to fork, if you come up with some cool scripts you can request a pull back and I will add them.
Lastly, ENJOY IT!!!!! It's not the best or most feature filled bot, but I appreciate you using him! See the original and most feature filled version of Boom Bot at Whistle while you work where he lives.
