    Is the below list close to being right? ...and NO, i'm not a developer, i just thought there was something missing from an otherwise fine piece of software.

        The bot is designed to be a front end for some AdvancedDCHub functions,
        and handle others itself.
        In general, to execute a command, you send a private message to AdvancedBot. 
        "hostname Joe" will execute the hostname function with the
        argument "Joe".


        The period is a length of time, written as an integer which may
        be followed by one of the following letters:
            s (seconds)
            m (minutes)
            h (hours)
            d (days)

      That looks good to me.  In most cases it's probably better to use the UserCommands, though.  See examples/usercommands.AdvancedDCHub.

      I'm definitely not used to DC so a good link on how to use UserCommands with py-dchub would be nice.

        I can't find a good link about how to use them, but if you use DC++ and have usercommandsfile set in the hub configuration file, then you should see user commands if you right click on a hub or a user.  Some documentation about how to create the commands is at http://www.dcpp.net/wiki/index.php/%24UserCommand.  However, the example that comes with the hub covers all of the common needs.
