Github commit messages do not get updated w/o a reload

When the github commit hook sends a message to the target room, propane does not detect the change until a reload is manually initiated.

A quick search here didn't reveal an answer. The Briquette app does detect the message w/o needing a reload, so I'm pretty sure this isn't a problem with the github hook script.

    Hi Kevin,

    you're using your own Campfire account for the bot's login credentials on github. The Campfire web interface (used by Propane) doesn't supply live updates of messages spoken by your own account so while everyone else can see the github updates, you can't.

    The solution is to create a Campfire user for bots like github. Even if you're going to use Briquette I would still recommend this, so that the commit messages don't appear to be spoken by you.

    If you have any further problems please let me know.

    Regards, Trev
