So, what does the "m" in "mIRC" really stand for? I have heard some different things for this, and have never really gotten one answer. I have looked all over http://mIRC.com/, and I have not found anything.

I was thinking maybe it stood for Mardam-Bey Internet Relay Channel, but I am not sure. So, does anyone know?

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

Why would it stand for "Moo"? Hehe. That is a little strange.

It's never actually been revealed what it stands for, despite some people's curious fascination with it. Check Khaled's FAQ for a few ideas of what it might stand for.


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

If you will go to the url that both coldfusion and starbuck referenced, you will see Khaled's reply to "what does the m stand for".
