Is it possible to set mIRC to change my nick to a predesignated alternate when I mark myself as away? This is about the only thing that has been bugging me with mIRC, as there's no obvious visual indication as to who is away.


This is my signature. Sexy, huh?

Yes. The following script will do just that.
Code:
alias away {
  if $away {
    .nick $mnick
    !away
  }
  else {
    .nick $anick
    !away $1-
  }
}

Usage: /away <reason> or /away (when coming back)

In case you don't know, this is designed to go into the Remotes tab of the Script Editor, which can be accessed by pressing Alt+R

Hey, thanks. I didn't consider a script.
