You've had to pay for mIRC since the first version.

Since when? Krejt has said that mIRC doesn't kill itself after 30 days, so the only thing that has changed is that you can no longer stop the nagging.

From the mIRC License Agreement:
mIRC is shareware, which means that you can try it out freely for 30 days to evaluate it. If during, or at the end of, the evaluation period you decide that you would like to continue using mIRC, you must register your copy. Your single-user registration will license you to use your copy of mIRC, will support work on future versions, new features, and bug fixes, and will provide you with technical support via email.



It has always been like that.

What gives you the right to moan? If you don't like it then use another IRC client.

Many have; and that suggestion of yours is very good.

I imagine many users will switch to other IRC clients; I recommend xchat http://www.xchat.org/

maybe many have, but he still has no right to complain until he sees how hard it is for himself.

Paying for a program you WANT to use?
What a novel idea!
I only complain about paying for those I'm FORCED to use (windows) because of compatible software availability. grin

I registered mine.

You are correct; writing an application on par with mIRC is a very intensive project. Blah; I guess registering for mIRC after the 30 day evaluation isn't a big deal.

This is way off-topic but your avatar scares the heck out of me.

IMHO this is takin the <moderator edit>. the developers know how big mirc is, so instead of saying they have to pay for it after 30 days, they are now forcing people too, which is pretty sad, money making <moderator edit>!!!! mad

If the IRC daemon server software hadnt been developed where would mirc be, no where it probably wouldnt even exist, just like other clients for windows/*unix. But they never charged for the ircd software did they, NO! so what gives him the right too, and people who do pay for this as just as thick and stupid as the developers.

I for one will be shortly moving on to another client other than mirc and will be urging people who come on our irc network or people i just talk to on other networks not to use ver 6.1.

What about those people who cannot pay for it, i.e they are kids in school, college or uni with no method of payment and just use the campus internet ? or are they expected to pay as well. get real!

Suggestion for the developers, go join microsoft you money making <moderator edit>, you belong with bill gates.

are you blind?, mirc doesn't force you to pay, think of it as a reminder.
it does not stop working after 30 days...

If you can't pay for it, don't use it.
There are other, _free_ IRC clients out there.

yea which is annoyance, so to stop it you have to pay for it, hence why "I SAID" its forcing you to pay to get rid of it.

MonoSex, its not a case of me not being able to pay for it, its more like I dont want too cuz as you said there is pleanty of other free irc clients available out there on the internet to use.

IRC is generally been free, which is why irc is the size it is and growing, if every server admin or client developer charged for something they devel / run, then how big would irc be now exactly, half the size if if not less than it is now.
