Hey again!

I've recently run across an issue in a large channel i run, which is causing freezing of mIRC every 10 seconds or so for about 2-3 seconds.

Here's the scenario:
-bot reads join/parts
-bot adds timer to do x action every x seconds

During this join / part read, mIRC is unresponsive to other commands/is busy reading data.

In the documentation for mIRC i don't see a mention of reading/writing to and from a different directory. I'd like to run two copies of mIRC, one to handle the join/parts and timers and the other one to handle the normal stuff.

Is this possible or does anyone have any other ideas to go about this?

Thanks!

Write more efficient code, running two instances should not be necessary.

That said, the easiest way is just to install mIRC as a portable installation somewhere else.
