lol thanks, I have a habit of turning up like a bad penny :tongue:
I've tried /remote on and /remote off - no difference. I don't use any other scripts or addons. I'm still connected to the net when this happens, but I can't close mIRC without doing a ctrl+alt+del - it just completely freezes up. The only thing I've noticed is if I disconnect from the internet, mIRC responds again and I can reconnect - but then the whole thing starts all over again. I'd try the @debug thing, but I'm so lagged it'll never happen confused

Never compare yourself to others - they're more screwed up than you think.
