Loc: nowhere
there's the "me:" prefix in remote events, which makes it only activate if it was triggered by yourself. so you can do stuff like
Code:
on me:*:join:#:msg $chan Ashkrynt in da house!

instead of needing an explicit if ($nick == $me) smile

I can't get Khaled to squeak - it just opens up the Khaled's Nutshell page.

The fun of an easter egg is discovering it for yourself. wink
But, since these are eggs that no longer exist...

About Show:
I can tell you how I came about discovering it; I went looking through old mirc.ini backup files from as early as v5.31 and noticed an arbitrary value that kept changing from version to version. So I reinstalled all of my old versions and downloaded the ones I didn't have, and made a comprehensive list of these values from the earliest version that the About dialog had a checkbox.

Of this list, included different animals Khaled has seen on his various excursions around the world, his favorite cartoons, and vague blade runner references... to name a few.

I'll leave the task of completing this list, up to you.
_____

About Arnie:
Another related egg-like thing was this undocumented setting.
This was also removed in v6.10, and last worked in v6.03
  • in mirc.ini
    [about]
    arnie=on
This setting perminately replaced Khaled's face with Arnie's.
It would have been a popular egg in this version, with the about dialog always-on.
(not saying that Khaled isn't fun to look at, Arnie is just... funner. grin)

Another Easter Egg that has been removed in v6.10.

Ouch!, Eek!, Yikes!:
This is a well documented easter egg on many sites, but I'm posting it just the same as a tribute to it and Khaled's cult sense of humor. When right-clicking on the right-most toolbar icon, a tooltip box would appear containing one of the following phrases with each click.

ouch!, eek!, yikes!, moo!, erk!, :P~~~, It's life Jim..., but not as we know it, Ni!, *positive karma*, oink, With a rubber duck..., one's never alone, -gribbit-, hi MOM!, hoohaa!, I'm a Tigger, are you?, nanoo nanoo, BaDOOM!, Mork calling Ork, Yak!, Whatever you do..., DON'T PANIC!, Grrr..., Greetings $me $+ !, :[/b]), That's all folks!, Enjoy the ride :[b]), woowoo!

If you recognize at least 5 of the above references, you're a typical geek in their mid-late 20's.
Scary, ain't it. smile

However, now when you right-click this same icon, it turns into a smiley face. This use to happen when you held Shift and clicked on the icon in v6.03 and earlier.

about the "shift arnie" thing, not sure if everyone knows this but you don't actually have to type "arnie" a <anything here> r <anything here> n <anything here> i <anything here> e

meaning ajfdsfdrsjfdsfdsnjjkjkifdfdfse will still show the arnie image.

I didn't say "shift arnie" though.
To my knowlege, you don't have to press shift for that egg.

Note: The 'a' 'r' 'n' 'i' 'e' easter-egg is the product of a small hidden button control just beneath Khaled's about photo. You can use any number of window enumeration tools to hide/show this button.
(Sorry for the spoiler folks.)

$beta is an undocumented identifier, that would apparently be used by beta testers.

$opnick/$nopnick/etc. were added in v5.0 and were later replaced by $nick() in v5.60.
They are depreciated identifiers, except $opnick is still used in On Op/Deop, etc

$nickmode appears to be an undocumented sibling to $prefix that doesn't appear in the versions_all.txt
I could track down exactly when $nickmode first appeared, if you really need to know.

- Raccoon

PS. Before asking about any undocumented $identifier or /command, check to see if it's just an old and depreciated command, in this complete versions.txt. Many times, a command is taken out of the help file, or never even makes it in... but will usually appear in an a versions file.

//echo -a $beta in 6.1 returns $false, perhaps it's to check if it's a beta version crazy

$pi is a mathematical identifier for pi in 6.03 it returns

//echo -a $pi

and u get :
3.14159265358979323846

if your getting something other than that then maybe its broken?
