I had been intending to run a Pywikibot on this wiki ever since shortly after I became an admin here, but it just kept being put on the back burner in favor of other things.
Well, this blog is to announce that after a few days of tinkering, I finally got around to setting up the account (which you may have seen creating its user and talk pages a couple of days ago) I created to actually run as a bot.
