Can't figure out how to do this. I've read the HBHBot so I think I know what the mission is. If I'm right I'm supposed to use the given @-commands to make the bot do what we want? Hints anyone??
I have read all the other topics about this challange and here are the hints I found useful.

zeus_the_moose wrote: Hey guys, just completed this challenge. Pretty tough until you realize the trick. Here are some pointers:
- We want the bot to issue a command, which means it must be done on his end not ours.
- A obvious place to start would be with the @say command, but remember we have other useful functions as well(hint hint).
- A command is issued on a single line only, and not as part of a functions output.
- Read pointer 3 again and then read pointer 2.
Hope this will help some of you solve this challenge. :)

So I have tried manipulating/"nesting" the @-commands to make the bot spit out and execute a certain irc command, but with no luck. I bet the answer lies in the quotes above, but somehow I'm missing something essential.

So I know there are some C**F magic to complete this challenge, but I can't figure out how and where to use it. The only way I can think of, to represent it, is by hex. Therefore I've been trying many things with the @hex2ascii command trying to make the bot do my bidding, but no cigar.
- I think I know what methode to use but I'm stuck and the bot alway saysBot24: You're close, but not quite there yet.Can I PM someone my solution and maybe get a hint to the right solution?

EDIT: Ok I solved it. Biggest problem for me, after finding the right technique was to find out the correct irc command.
