Yes, I know all about that, including paying for mirc.
I was referring specifically to mIRC v6.15, and only because I was told that the from an op in a "Official DALnet Help Channel". When I said I doubted it were true, they said they got it from some very reliable sources.
The posts from Parabrat didn't cover what i was referring to
I did search the forum first
to see if anything had been mentioned about it, there wasn't.
Khaled did email me back, and for that I thank him.
