Thanks for your reply. I gave up in the end. It seems as though our favorite undernet servers are not existing anymore.
I'm a total fruitcake where mIRC is concerned.
I don't have any more info. My username was Mags1. I deleted mIRC, downloaded it again, tried again, same results. I was able to enter the channel I wanted, but there was nobody else there. Oy! The heartbreak!
Any assistance to get into a similar new, or alternative room will be greatly appreciated.
