Hey, this is an Easter Egg post, if you know what it is please post any you know about (for mIRC only, 6+ please smirk), if you dont know what an easter egg is, its a thing hidden inside a program like a secret leve in a game or something like that...
Danké

In the About Dialog

Typing "arnie" (without the "" ) changes Khaleds face to Arnie the mIRC Mascot

In the same window press your left mouse button on the mIRC icon, and it changes to
an older mIRC icon.

also in the same About dialog, press your right mouse button on the mIRC icon and
look carefully around the word mIRC© v6.1 and watch a dot spring up n down.

In the Toolbar uptop, with the options and remote icons are, press your right mouse
button on the about icon, and it changes to a smile.

These are some of the easter eggs i know of that work in V6.1, i had a list of other eggs,
for versions prior to 6.0, but i lost them.
try here http://www.eeggs.com/
i think they have a list somewhere, but dont expect all the eggs to work on V6.1, try them with previous versions, before 6.0

Also you can click Khaled's nose on the about dialog and it will make a squeak sound.

You said you've checked the source, it's supposed to be in hexadecimal inside something else...

Yeah i used a Hexeditor, cant remeber which one tho, i tried searching in the list of parameters for certain words that would show up up in the hex code, i`m no programmer, but i had a freind that showed me how a hexeditor works once cos we had to hexedit a save game file for a game to give us extra cash, lol, same principle, use a hex editor to look for "otter" and see if any other words are kept in that same general area of the program source code, not that i condone the illegal use of a hex editor, but sometimes i like to go poking around grin to see how something works.

It worked in 6.03. It should display in the status windows with red text "Nothing Happens"

There was a post on it made by either racoon or codemastr but I can't seem to find it. I'm sure one of them will correct me if I've got it wrong smile
