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?

Or if you got the $ its only a $20 one-time fee.
