IRC Client

I'm looking for a good IRC client to use and I'm looking for suggestions.

I'm currently using mIRC but when trying to connect to other servers besides EFNet I get the following message:

* /socklisten: bind error (line 11, webclient.mrc)
-
[20:04:42] * Disconnected
-
* /join: not connected to server (line 3, aliases.ini)
-
[20:04:43] * Connecting to yukon.winbeta.org (6667)
-

I'm able to connect to the server but then get disconnected immediately. I'm not trying to connect to yukon.winbeta.org :shrug:

I've tried and currently use XChat to connect to other servers but don't like the fact that I can't tile windows in that client.

So any other suggestions? Perhaps someone has had a similar problem and can help me fix it??

I didn't like XChat either for the same reason. Try a re-install of mIrc with Acidmax. Do you still have Excursion installed?

Got rid of them all. I switched to mIRC because I (Acidmax) was banning ppl when I wasn't around, for no reason. An Op had to deop or kick me so I (Acidmax) wouldn't ban.

If only XChat would tile it's windows :shrug:

Oh, and I have tried reinstalling mIRC but the same thing happens :(

I don't understand the need to tile windows, i'm on 6 servers on 13 (more sometimes) channels, and i get on fine with X-Chat.

As for your problem just try /unload -rs webclient.mrc then press alt+a and see what alias is on line 3.
I don't think this is the actual problem tho, the client wouldn't cause an error that would lead to instant disconnect

Spose so, I just can't justify 13 windows splattered across my screen. and i hate having any app (other than Graphics and Games) in full screen/maximised, so tiling the windows would give a very small portion of screen to each channel.

Bleh.

As xsiv said, user preference

Did the /unload and said it wasn't found :( Line 3 in my alias is /j /join #$$1 $2-

I'm not as popular as you, I only have 5 to 6 channels open on mIRC at 1 time :p
As for full screen, IRC is the only app that is full screen, I hate them as well.
