Anything that isn't mIRC :)

Can back-up what's been suggested already though..

HydraIRC (www) is a very nice client, written natively for Win32 aswell. It's quite un-finished at the moment though, but of course it can only get better.

X-Chat www) is a more established client. There aren't as many features as some other clients, but basically, I refuse to use anything else because I like it that much :)

mIRC alone isn't bad if your a windows user ... its the "scripts" that give mIRC a very very bad name :(

The fact it's $20.00 for something many other clients manage to do for free, and in most cases, do better, has always put me off.

I've always liked mIRC. There are decent scripts for it, and it isn't very hard to customize for yourself. I also use Xchat on Debian ... haven't gotten used to it, but it's working great. Plugins aren't very plentiful though.

Oh yeah, hydrairc looks sweet. I might give it out a try. If it wasn't for my huge mIRC log files that have been around for years, I'd might be convince to leave mIRC altogether.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
