Please have patience with me 'cuz I'm getting way to old for this stuff but I'm trying! When I double click on someone's name to privately converse with them, I will get a separate window which is exactly what I want. But, if another user tries to do the same on my nick to send me a prv msg, I do not get the separate window. What I will get is their private msg displayed on the channel I am in (not viewable by other members of course). I have just recently downloaded the newest version of mirc, thinking that it might be a glitch in my old one but it is still happening. So now I am thinking that it's possible I don't have one of my options set correctly?
One other problem that I have occassionaly had (which I mention now only due to the fact that the two may be tied together) is that while in a channel and I type "brb", one of the other nicks in the room will appear on my screen as if they are trying to prv me. I have checked with them, and they aren't doing anything. When this has happened, I have closed down my mirc program and reconnected which seems to solve the problem at the time.
Have I stepped into the "Twilight Zone" or what? LOL Oh, and I have also checked in some of the Help channels but there seems to never be anyone there. Am using Windows98 and no Script unless one came with the Mirc download. Remember now....be gentle with replies 'cuz I'm old and confused! LOL
