I notice that whenever I click on the "Continue" button on the mIRC "About" dialog, a connection is opened to mirc.com on port 443. What is the purpose of this connection and what data is exchanged?

Thanks and Cheers!

Thomas

The mIRC About dialog randomly chooses from a number of messages on startup which are loaded from the mIRC website. So, for example, in the past they have ranged from a link to the mIRC discussion forums, a reminder to register through different methods, an offer to register with a discount, a link to my personal page, a photo of Arnie waving, a competition question where users can win free registrations, and so on. I change the messages every so often.
