So, after finally getting tired of doing dBm conversions by hand, I decided to write a little script to do it.. and since I have a handy IRC bot already, I decided to make it a plugin for the bot. And thus began my adventures in python! As it turns out, it seems that not all python is clean and readable and easy to extend. After an hour of hacking and cursing, I finally got things working.

The plugin is made for supybot and has conversion functions for dBm to watts and for watts to dBm. More functions will probably come later, but this is a good start.
