Hi guys, i'm writing a simple irc bot to get to grips with what i've 
learned about ruby so far.
It works ok, but i'm looking for a simple way to format the output, at 
the moment the log files and stdout
look something like this:

:kyu!kyu / cpimps-34E00F11.elk.dialup.pol.co.uk PRIVMSG #matrix :yea that's it

I read the pickaxe section on regexp thinking that would point me in the 
right direction but i'm still not sure.

Any help would be great. Thanks.
