Contributor Nick Barnwell resides in København, Danmark and is an avid computer user. Out side of school, he runs an IT consulting firm for small businesses and SOHO users. You can find him on Twitter and Howard Forums under the names of nickbarnwell and Urthwhyte respectively.
As some of you may recall, when Nokia Chat launched around August of last year, an enterprising Howard Forums member wrote a small bot that would echo messages sent to it to other users who had sent the bot a message, forming an ersatz IRC channel. Unfortunately, this bot was pulled offline within a few months, and the thrill of a new Nokia service had worn off long before then with users drifting back to the more mainstream chat networks such as MSN and Y!IM.
