How can time be converted into kilobytes?

Anyway, by having too many options you also lose simplicity and efficiency.

mIRC is already pretty slow; even with no scripts running and no /background's it grinds to a halt for quite a while during large floods. I'd hate to see it be slower.

It's worth noting that the 6.1x versions are pretty much bugfix versions. As the homepage specifically states they are designed to make the 6.1x series stable, not to introduce new features and so on (hence the strong concentration on bug fixes which is clear from versions.txt).

Simply as I just saw this, Ashkrynt, I do not find that mIRC "grinds to a halt" during floods, perhaps a gross exaggeration? Or perhaps the server you use hasn't got a good enough 'Excess flood' limit? Or perhaps the ops aren't very good and don't protect the channel against floods? I've never come across a flood which has frozen my mIRC for very long, and the ones that DO freeze it at all are quickly resolved at a personal level by flicking to another window or /ignore -c * for a few seconds smile

If the only thing you're looking for is something that looks good why not just turn off your computer and look at a pretty picture instead? The rest of us who are interested in having an intuitive, functional, and pleasant (ie. non-crashing) IRC experience will stick with mIRC.

if you want cute skin support to view "cool" xp styles and simmiliar, then use skins on your OS and hump it and hump it and hump it and hump it and hump it and hump it and hump it and hump it....

btw: if you want fancy look of program then draw it in paint and look at it; hell use it as wallpaper on desktop

You can probably add all of that using various dlls.

Dolphins and flowers instead of @ and + is certainly possible - nicklist.dll

Picture instead of nick - nhtmln.dll and smilesview.dll

Graphical topic - nhtmln.dll and some dll to remove the titlebar which I can't remember the name of.

What is "fun" about defacing one of the greatest chat interfaces ever developed and making it look like the side of a New York train carriage?

Dont hold back, tell us how you really feel dude! LOL Personally, I would hate to see a number of options people have mentioned in this thread come to pass.

More and more this thread is beginning to look exactly like that!
No arguments from me grin
