Hi Guys,

I have been using Mirc6.12 for the last long while. I pretty much only go on mirc to chat on #ntfs and #enyo and #geffy channels. Do I really need a script? I do not know what a script does to Mirc proggy, everything seems to be working fine without one, I guess. Can I create my own server in Mirc? What would I need?

I will always thank Geffy for spending some time with me a while ago showing me how Mirc worked, as I couldn't even open the program before his help. Thanks, Bud.

Nah. A mIRC script is basically an add-on of sorts, to customize commands, make IRC looks pretty, etc -- a custom copy of mIRC or any IRC client, if you will.

You'd need a pc/server capable of running an IRC daemon (a program you run to host an IRC server).

Is this IRC Daemon a free download? Where can I find it?

Thanks for the help.

Scripts = God no! They're the scurge of IRC.

Why would you want to run your own IRCd? If you just want your own channel, find a server with services, and simply /join a channel, register it and so forth.

Great source for IRC Help: http://irchelp.org/

Scripts are useful to automate repetitive things. Lots of the scripts for mIRC out there though are just a pile of crap. I've used PnP for a long time. Development for it has stopped, but it's good, simple, and has what I need.

I would stick w/ the rule, the best and really the only script you should use is the one you write yourself :)

I think me means 'server' in the sense of a file server, but i'm not very clear on what he means...

I did mean just a file server.

SpeedyB made sense. Not really something I wanna busy myself with right now.
