This is great. Helped me get a related Python script interacting with my Slackbot. My script waits for a new message to be sent to the bot, and then does some processing and GPIO actions on the Pi. I would like to make it so that while a message is being processed, another incoming message could be stored in a queue to be processed after the first process is complete. Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

@danflurry try using threads so you can keep listening to more requests while you process something.
