You may notice that my nick now switches to “BenWa|Sms” when I am away, if you are curious read on:
I made a ZNC (IRC Bouncer) module called cmdnotify. The module will invoke a script when a highlighted word is mentioned if you are not attached to the bouncer. In my case I relay the message over SMS to my phone.
If you’re interested in setting this up for yourself you will first want to configure ZNC and then install my cmdnotify module.
