A lot of us users and developers of emacs and its
various projects and extensions hang out on #emacs on We also help our a lot of emacs
newbies there.

Our channel bot fsbot (the "Free Software bot" (which
uses the savannah project erbot, of which i am the
author) runs on a shell on currently, which
is hosted by me.  But that host is often down because
of cable problems at my house. 

I am making this request to you on the suggestion of
fellow #emacsers. It would be nice for us #emacsers, if
I could get a shell account on one of your hosts (say,
savannah or, from which i could run emacs and
thus run fsbot uninterrupted. 

It would be much more convenient if separate usernames
could be made available for "deego" and "fsbot". 

I currently run 7 different bots based on the ErBot
package for various free software channels on
#freenode, but fsbot is the one most used and most

fsbot/erbot is based within emacs, all bots' content is
freely distributable under FDL, and the bots are 
invaluable to us as channel bookmarks, information
storage, elisp interpretors, etc. fsbot also hangs out
on #gnu and #fsf.  I also maintain "usage statistics"
for #gnu, #fsf, #emacs etc. on which have
been in the channel topics for quite a while.
