Activate your account now and view the hidden context! /msg murmelo !setpass newpassword
Entered an URL and now you regret it? !hups will remove it.
Don't want your URL to be stored? Put a ! as the first character on the line. Don't want others to see your urls or messages? /msg murpot !set messages private and /msg murpot !set context private will hide all your messages from others.
Wanna put your history behind? Send !set history private to Murmelo, and your old messages (messages imported prior to 2009-03-01) will no longer be visible to other registered accounts (they never were visible to people without one). Bulk removal of messages not yet available.
Excited about Web 2.0 and want to tag everything? Accompany your urls with [tag1] [tag2], or [tag1, tag2], or pass message !tag tag1, multi-word tag to the channel to tag URLs.

Modeemi Url Mega Logger is an irc-based service that logs the URLs from the channel to a database. In addition to logging plain URLs it has the capability to log nearby lines for added context.
Murmelo has sophisticated privacy features. By default, URLs entered on the channel will be available for anyone (including crawlers) to see, but that setting can be changed to be one of:
In addition to providing URL message visibility limits Murmelo has separate flag for storing context messages, which are messages that appear within the previous/following 2 lines/30 seconds (the actual values may vary). By default such the visibility of such messages is semipublic.
Note: visiblity settings affect only newly inserted messages. Messages entered before changing the setting are not affected. Only "set history" can affect those, and its current time span is quite limited. If you wish to change the visibility setting en masse, contact flux.
The visibility limitations for url and context messages can be changed respectively with the following commands:
By default new accounts are created with message visibility set to public and context visibility set to semipublic.
Upon seeing a message with a sequence beginning with http://, the message with all the URLs in it is stored to the database. This can be prevented by prefixing the line with !. This works also in the single URL level: a sequence beginning with !http:// will not be recognized as an URL. However, in this case, if the line contains other URLs, they will be stored, and thus the hidden URL will also be visible, if not linked from the web page.
Messages can also be tagged. By accompanying an URL with the sequence [tagname] the URLs in the line (all of them) will be tagged with the tag. The tags will be visible, written in subscript, in the web page. At this point (2009-03-09) tags cannot be used for anything, but at some point they will likely become browseable and searchable. Messages can be tagged later by anyone sending the command !tag tagname to the channel, or by sending them privately to the bot by the author, as described in the list of commands.
Do /msg murmelo !command args to send a command to Murmelo.
All the commands work when given on the channel too, if you prefix the message with "botname," (so: "murmelo:"), but the response (if any) still goes back with a /notice. Some commands work even without the prefix, such as hups.
