Mirc needs revivification!

My idea... people with skype installed - mirc senses when skype client is in 'skypeme' mode and makes it possible to connect a skype call with another mirc user(also in skypeme mode - it shows in mirc) through the click of a button in mirc.
The persons nickname is highlighted then it shows if they are in skypeme mode in the form of a functioning 'call on skype button'.

Other options include conferencing with mirc users through the skype client by the use of 'invite to conference button' in mirc.

This idea would require some kind of monitoring of the skype client and 2 buttons to be created in mirc to connect calls. Also;- some way of relaying skype status to other mirc clients through the mirc network would need to be figured out... how it's done? i don't know..
but I think it would be cool.

Another possibility for this idea is that the 'call on skype' option could be included in the popup menu which arises when you right click on the users nickname in the nicks list.
This turns mirc into a visual catalog of communication... it requires no major changes to mirc but adds the functionality of skypes voice and video communication systems to the mirc client. Companies and internet users would find this added functionality useful. Also skype users would gain the benefits of a text interface for chat in chat rooms(which skype lacks).

That is not something that should be in mIRC as relatively few people use it that way. It might be a good script idea, but not as a mIRC feature.

Yes. thanks for your input.
The idea is simple..
right click a nickname to make a skype call if they are in skypeme mode.

And i think it should be a standard feature of mirc so that everyone can easilly take advantage.

And I guess next we'll be trying to start voice calls and conferences with our buddies on MSN, Yahoo, and AIM right?

It still is not useful to the majority of users. It's fine as a script suggestion, but not as a mIRC feature.

Start with 5 seconds and work your way up.

You're assuming that people can, infact, understand what you say. Often your posts are fragmented, with unqualified "this" or "thats". Other times they are incoherent, nonsensical, or just plain wrong.

Bear in mind that this is coming from a native English speaker. Many users of these forums are not native English speakers, and they'll have even more trouble understanding you than I do.

Er, the entire point of my post was that foshizzle's posts often cannot be understood. Perhaps you two should get together sometime.

You are lollable.

Never heard of "chatting" via a phone?

and perhaps you should too, which i think is the problem, because it seems when people tell you that you're being completely incoherent on multiple occasions it doesn't raise any warning flags.

Yes, thanks everyone for replying. I had anticipated that there would be some level of disinterest in actually discussing my topic... and apparently the subject degraded into a discussion of text speak vs correct english.
Mirc would be really cool if you could use it to call mirc users through the skype client. Mirc could even come bundled with skype as a download...
your thoughts;-
