i had an old IBM 7248-100 computer with a 100MHz PowerPC CPU and Windows NT 4.0/PPC on it. The only IRC client which exist is 0irc v1232.
it would be nice, if i (or the devs) can compile a old version (e.g 3.92?) on this machine, so we had the best IRC software on a great piece of mid 90 hardware!
in the changelog i see, around ~2002 mIRC 6.01 is coded in Visual C++ .NET.
the only one version of visual c++ on powerpc is 4.0, so i assume (and hope) mIRC 3.x/4.x is coded in this version of visual c++
to my person: i'm not a good coder, i get many help from a good friend, with him i got apache 1.3x, putty, 0irc, a little game and soon(TM) winvnc to work. at the c3 congress (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_Communication_Congress
) we present old machines to interressed peoples, so a good IRC client is a must.
