About Chris Double's IRC bot object: Chris said (last year):

I'm having trouble with this.  (Possibly just being a noob.)  First of all, I think the filein command should have a capital F in From, thus:

	bootstrap read: 'ircBot' from: 'applications'.

But with or without that capital F, doing the filein doesn't seem to create an ircBot slot on globals.  This is using Self 4.4 on a Mac, clean snapshot ... maybe something relevant has changed since Chris wrote that last year?
