Nerdle lurks in IRC channels and pretends to be human by chiming into conversation periodically. Like many IRC users, Nerdle is a 'lurker', meaning the he is a passive reader and browser of conversations until something comes up that interests him.
In addition to reacting to certain words, persons and phrases, Nerdle can also keep time, tell the weather, post messages to private blogs and todo lists, dance, and eat/throw/cut things.
