Well they almost certainly haven't sold anything to Khaled. More likely they've just closed down and set the domain to redirect to mirc.com until it expires. I seem to remember reading somewhere that the site has been down for long periods over the last year or so, perhaps it's finally gone down for good?


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

They've been under DDoS last year I think, and they closed down the chat applet. Now, it wouldn't even surprise me if it was the whole site that's being closed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but last time I checked, itz is spelled it's. It doesn't make you look "cool" or "leet" to purposely mispell words. It makes you look stupid and immature.

Maybe I am wrong on the whole subject. Maybe on my resume I should put "A ch4||3ng1ng p051t10n 1n th3 1nf0|2m4t10n T3chn010gy f13|d wh3|23 my 3duc4t10n 4nd 3xp3r13nc3 w1|| c0nt|21but3 t0 th3 5ucc355 0f 4 |4rg3 5c4|3 0rg4n1z4t10n." as my objective. I'm sure I'd get many interviews talking like that.

Did it not occur to you that the z in "itz" could have been a typo? Regardless, we are here to help people, not critique their grammer/spelling/phrasing/writing style, etc or to embarass them. Let's drop it and move along please.

why "hackers" (kids) DoS sites that contain....

Because they can. Why do teenagers think they can hold their drink down? Why do they take up smoking? Why do they think that going from L plates to P plates makes them invincible? Because they can. We live in an era where boredom is often only replaced by entertainment that is either paid for or supplied by others. Self-made entertainment often involves destruction or obstruction of some sort.

....scripts and forums that help other people.

Help them? mIRCx content was more often corrupt in some way or other and this certainly isn't helpful. The site was more or less open to abuse by people wanting to shift IRC trojans or other infectious files and I guess some people took offence to it and returned the favour. A while back they closed down not only their webchat but also their IRC server which the webchat connected to. If they have redirected their URL then chances are they won't be back. Given the nature of some of the downloads they hosted/linked to, I am not so sure it's a bad thing.

Hi DekuHaze,

L Plates are for Learner drivers and P Plates are for those drivers who have just recently passed their tests
to warn other drivers "Look out i passed my test, but i may still break sharp" grin
