agreed. I knew that it's stored in mIRC.ini, I always familiarize myself with it when a new version comes out
but I figured it would benchmark about 90 times faster if there was a command to do it. mIRC has a fast scripting engine, but the internal commands do very complicated things much faster. besides, it's probably not a whole lot of work to add such a simple feature.
Anyway, it's just a thought
