    INSTALLING MIRC AND CONNECTING TO IRC


    About mIRC

    mIRC is a full featured Internet Relay Chat client for Windows that can be used to communicate, share, play or work with others on IRC networks around the world, either in multi-user group conferences or in one-to-one private discussions.

    It has a clean, practical interface that is highly configurable and supports features such as buddy lists, file transfers, multi-server connections, SSL encryption, proxy support, UTF-8 display, customizable sounds, spoken messages, tray notifications, message logging, and more.

    mIRC also has a powerful scripting language that can be used both to automate mIRC and to create applications that perform a wide range of functions from network communications to playing games.

    mIRC has been in development for over a decade and is constantly being improved and updated with new technologies.

    I'd recommend also Chatzilla extension for Firefox users, very easy to use.

    And here's a link to a good all-around IRC guide, made by El Pilchinator from TORN:

    I know I can be a pain in the ... , but I have v6.35 of mIRC. So I guess your version is outdated. Razz
