Unlike hundreds of thousands of other people, I actually don't think about the new mIRC version being released. I'm happy with 6.03...it does its job anyway - it's been able to do everything I've wanted it to do so far anyhoo.
True, it will be interesting to see what will be in the new version, but all this talking about it is going to make the process seem a WHOLE lot slower, and make you feel as though you're waiting an eternity in anticipation :P It's like staring at a clock waiting for school/work to finish - it'll feel a lot longer when you concentrate on it (I'm sure we've ALL stared at the clock and thought..."has that stopped? Come on...COME ON YOU DAMN THING, TICK DAMMIT, TICK TOCK" - or maybe I'm just a psychotic maniac
I'd just forget about it, go chat, have some fun, maybe even *gasp* do something in real life
