Current Release Version
I have released a minor update to version 1.8. v1.82. It is still based
on an older mirc.exe file tho, as the latest version of mirc seems to have
some memory leak that causes "software caused connection abort" errors
every 6 hours or so.
Note: Version 1.8gamma of this script hasn't been updated since april
2000. Most of the good "features" I added to this script have been ripped
off, and are now "standard" in most other scripts.. and some other features
have actually been hard coded into the latest Mirc Version by by Khaled
Mardam-Bey!.. Wow don't I feel honored.

Notes on current version
My Script started as a project to create a script to accompany my minBOT
But ended up as a script that many of my friends wanted.
What's so special about my script you may ask?
Its a work in progress, i am continually thinking up new features,
or being given suggestions to make the next version better.
If I find a problem, i release a patch that fixes it.
Its generally not lame.
Prime Directives, the ideals upheld in this script:
It doesn't contain any annoying ascii art, there is no flooding script.
It contains hot keys for kicking users out of a channels, and a few unique
It contains features that allow you to do an Ops Only Notice when you are
not an op.
It allows you to do a notice in a channel, even when its moderated.
It allows you to send the same file by DCC to selected users, or to a whole
channel of users.
It contains a plugin which gives it support for playing Mp3 files, - nothing
fancy, it just mimics the /sound command - and offers both a /mp3 command
and a shortcut in the channel popup menu (under sound).
It has a text to speech plugin, yes that's right, you don't even need to
look at the screen anymore.
It contains a shortcut which allows you to load or unload my other minBOT
script without needing to swap windows.
It allows you to maintain several nicknames on a number of IRC servers,
and identify to the services bot at the click of a mouse.
It gives you an Audio prompt for pings, saving you the need to check the
status window to see how lagged you are.
It also displays sound requests, so if you don't have a sound file, you
can see the file name.
Random Quit Messages - This seems popular so i added it.
Non Invasive Away system, the pager only works every hour, not every 10
minutes, so you have less of a "slow flood" effect in idle channels.
HEAPs of other features.
Basically this means:
Thou Shalt Not be Lame (the script not the website :P)
Thou Shalt Not be Annoying to other chatters or to the user of the script
Thou Shalt Hold the Security of the user above all else
Thou Shalt be easy to use or configure no mater what level of expertise
Thou Shalt not lead a user into distraction from the chat
Thou Shalt be convenient and not bother users who don't use mirc to chat
How I rate IRC scripts: (in order of priority)
This script shouldn't be annoying to use
It should at least slow down attempts to compromise your security, and
it should never give out your password to someone other than the services
bot it is meant for.
It should try to comply with standards and expectations of the user, for
example: MP3 playback.
It should be customisable, so that users can add features not already in
it, or features deemed not necessary at the time. For example: auto greets,
silly colorful messages, etc
You should be able to enable or disable any features which may cause problems,
The interface should not be too overwealming. If there is a lot of features,
they should be integrated in such a way, that the user does not realize
they are using them.
usability: the design and layout of the menus, good or bad? easy to configure?
security: does it let someone send you a msg/ctcp and rape your hard drive?
does it protect you from exploits?
the "Nated" scale: how many useless and/or annoying color/ascii/codes it
the irritation scale.. how many flood/DoS/War functions does it have?

Notes on Current Version:
There is a glitch in the plugin system, sometimes if you install a plugin,
it displays the wrong plugin name in the popup menu. Just remove and reinstall
the plugin using the plugin menu if this happens.
