Hello,

Yesterday was 'talk like a pirate day' ( link).

I was on IRC talking like a pirate with the aid of the web based english-to-pirate translator. However having to switch from my browser back to IRC hindered the experience greatly and made look like a less than spontaneous pirate.

I think it would be great if Khaled could put in a 'pirate mode' that would automatically convert your text into 'pirate speak'.

I don't think this would have any logical use in the long run.


What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?

The logical use is to talk like a pirate.

'Long run' is a measurement of time, well pirate day will happen every year for the rest of eternity.

So the logical use of this function will still be logical in the long run

I assume this is a joke. But just in case it isn't, this is why mIRC has a scripting language.


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

This request would have made a lot more sense yesterday when TLAPD mattered. Try again next year.
