We had some fun today on the #django IRC channel searching and counting through past logs for people saying "thanks" to a known very helpful person.

Here's a unix shell script for checking your own score if you're using Pidgin and have logging turned on.

Replace ".purple" with ".gaim" in the script if you're using Gaim (an older version of Pidgin).

#!/bin/sh
#
# django-thanks-score - count how many times someone thanked you
#                       on the #django IRC channel
#
# Usage: ./django-thanks-score <nickname>
#
LOGDIR=$HOME/.purple/logs/irc/*@irc.freenode.net/#django.chat
cat $LOGDIR/*.txt | egrep -ic "\) [^:]+:.*$1.*thank"
