That last trick is working which is great. However I still need a little fine tuning if you have any other ideas?
From the 'perform on connect' and Remotes I get: *Timer thing activated
Then in the first channel window the timer begins but with a 'typo' as the message doesn't come out right: <my nick> my nick> "Line from Text"
It doubles my nick to include the non-printing achii character. The other snag is that *Timer thing activated
does not work in another channel window on the same server (such as Quakenet) at the smae time, as I need to $read into 3 channels. Do I have to edit remotes or can I load it new in each channel window? I do appreciate your help. This has been bugging me for ages and I feel I'm getting somewhere now!
