oh well. imo, if mIRC is just a plain text irc client, not a complex software, and anyone feels it not worth the $$, they can always switch to telnet. it's free! and it just plain text too. what's more, it's already included in most of your windows OS. crazy

Some IRC networks cost money to connect to, so does some hosting. Other IRC networks cost nothing to connect to, so does some hosting. The cycle will just continue round and round, the fact is that as soon as it starts affecting him is when he jumps out and says "This is wrong!", this is what really annoys me, and they really should stay in their own little greedy hole and shut the hell up.


You won't like it when I get angry.

I paid for mIRC I paid for trillian, why? because they are two programs that i love to use and the creators of said programming have asked for compensation for all the work that they have put into the program. Do I find this offensive? I don't think so, I think it is perfectly fair. I am quite sure that Khaled has spent by far thousands of hours working on the IRC client that thousands of us love and use daily and hours a day if your like me :tongue:, Why not give something back to him? Its only $20.00 and its for a lifetime you never have to pay it again! I think its a wonderful deal, not every software company is so willing to hand out free upgrades for as long as it is upgraded. Trillian for example I think I paid 25 dollars and that registration is good for 1 year. I can always use Trillian pro that I have currently or if it is upgraded before the year is up i can get the upgrade but after that year I can only use what i have at the time unless I wish to pay another 25 dollars for another year. Ah well thats just my 2 cents worth, Cheers ^^
