I bought this mIRC client a while back, but haven't been using it until this past week. It's been on my PC unused. I upgraded to the latest version yesterday. When you say networks, do you mean like IRCnet, Quakenet, etc. If so, .. yes. Once, I saw someone type! Surely, if you go into a chat room with 30 people on it and wait, your bound to see someone chatting, right. It's no big deal! I just thought I'd see whats going on. Evidently, I don't know what I'm doing!
