Currently the main IRC Bot used in the #rubik chatroom is named Nibblr (originally venim) created by Dan Cohen. This is a name change that occurred when the channel switched over to the freenode server. There is also an IRC Bot named mirco501, run by tomasu, which is an exact mirror of Nibblr. The name micro501 was meant to be the successor to the original bot, mirco500, which was created by Peter Greenwood(pjgat09).
