I've downloaded mIRC but am completely lost as to how to use it? Any guides/suggestion?

Thanks!

First suggestion, don't use mIRC. It's shown overtime to be insecure. Also, unlike virtually every other client and the IRC medium itself, It's not free.

take a look at http://irchelp.org/ to get you started.

same could be said about the OS it runs on but everyone still uses it :p I would suggest checking out irchelp also, and stop into the forum IRC channel :)

Besides, why resort to piracy when there are better (in my opinion) truly free alternatives available?

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!
