Are you connecting to the server first? Because you need to be connected to the server to send messages to the nickname server.

I think i got it to work. It was something with the serves i believe, so thanks for the help.
Anyway, I seem to be in the right chatroom as there are some recognizable names in the right menu bar.
Are the names there even if the user isn't on?

No Cataclysmic Crow. You have to stay connected for your name to be there. However a lot of people (Vreeg, SDragon, others) just leave there computer online and rarely log off.

Looks like you were in the right place, CC.  I see you entering and leaving in my logs (I was asleep and am one of the aforementioned idlers who occasionally leave their computer on).

What do we do after the 30 day trial expires for the MIRC version that is provided for download on this page?

Or do we just register it (for free?)

That the same rules designed to reduce the role of the GM and to empower the player also destroyed the autonomy to create a consistent setting.

Registering costs money.

You can however continue to use it, it just means you have to wait two minutes (one minute each, for two screens to click a button on each) before mIRC is started up.

You don't have to wait two minutes. Yea mIRC is nagware but you have to wait 15 seconds for both button clicks (not 2 minutes).
