hrm. doesn't look like skype integration worked
oh well!! :)
Morning folks!

[eyedol (guest)] we can see your messages from Skype so it works
[nigelb] I'm not sure if that's from skype or hipchat.
[arky] eyedol, That's cool How does that work?
[eyedol (guest)] that wasn't from Skype
[eyedol (guest)] it was from gitter
[eyedol (guest)] so rjmackay did the integration
[eyedol (guest)] there is a bot that relay's messages via gitter and this channel
[eyedol (guest)] there is one for hipchat but it's broken
[eyedol (guest)] I think he uses this service to do the bridge; https://sameroom.io/
[eyedol (guest)] he managed to get it to work with Skype earlier
[eyedol (guest)] but it seems unstable at the moment as I see the bot going on and off

Skypes a no-go.. apparently dev chat room is too old so doesn’t show up through some APIs or something.
Hipchat link is down at the moment.
But Sameroom devs are working on it

Yup. So gutted to see ‘Skype’ as an option only to find it wouldn’t work.

though, @rjmackay are you the one who posted this? http://i.imgur.com/XwpxoD5.png
came into skype about 3 hours ago, but ushbot's offline
Robbie Mackay
@rjmackay
May 07 2015 06:55
I posted that.. but while directly logged into skype as ushbot
so its not really a win
I sent David a message to bug him about granting admin to me and a few others.. since he owns that channel.
then at least we can kick people if needed.
Doesn’t make much difference right now. I was just trying to get the bot added to the channel which I figured out eventually
