Well before this thread gets closed (it probably will), I would like to say something as well.
The Bug Report forum lists down many many bugs, you can't expect Khaled to read them all. He did fix some of the bugs in the Compiled thread though, give Khaled time.
I am sure, you will get used to the new toolbar icons in time. I have gotten used to it.
Grayed text is Gray text because grayed isn't even proper spelling.
But I agree Grayed text should be left behind.
You said that you are too busy to write a client, have you ever thought of Khaled? He has a life too. He probably goes out like anyone does. Working on mIRC is just his hobby, at the same time making money.
And, if you want to leave, no need to tell us.
