Thank you for trying out mIRC. mIRC can be downloaded freely and evaluated for up to 30 days. If after evaluating mIRC you find that you like it and wish to continue using it, you will need to register your copy.
There are many other IRC clients out there, the ideal solution would be to incorporate the IRC chat into the board, but I don't think there is a hack yet for version 3, at least none that I could find. There have been a few users on Gabbly though, if people wanna chat is probably a good thing to use Gabbly instead and leave the chat window open while they browse the forum, that way people can see who is online and pop in for a quick chat if they wanted to.JamesC said:
