Jabber and Ruby

Oh it's getting neat in here. This is an interface library that lets a person talk to jabber servers via the Ruby language. While some people might not think that this is all that cool, imagine a world where each of your computers has a little personality sitting in it waiting your commands or telling you when something "odd" has happened. And all you need to do is have another client listening to a jabber server. Oh, and the other neat thing is that jabber allows for a person to have transports. What's a transport? Well it's a way for a message sent to a jabber server to be translated into another Instant messenger protocol. So a person can just sign into their jabber server and then be able to send a message to someone using ICQ or AIM. How neat is that?
