    Idling on IRC?

    I think that is pointless. Being on IRC and being idle is just fine. But participating in discussions is much more fun then just starting at the screen. And more to the point of being on a "chat" network :)

    dm

    dm Guest

    best of both worlds

    Get a bX screen (or psy) and just leave him idle

    then connect a real client and talk :)

    You can idle and talk at the same time

    wow ;)

    think its more important with client uptime compared to client idle time :)
    my current record is having a epic irc client up for 90 some days :)

    Re: bah

    Actually, the server uptime is more important then the client up/idle time. :) I rather have a stable system with no reason to reboot.
    Currently mine is. And I only take it down when it has totally nothing to do anymore for more then several hours, or when I am upgrading hardware to improve its performence. I am happy :) My IRC client is loaded manually instead off on boot, as I had previously, since IRC is an almost dead place anyway. And it goes down when I am going to bed or when I am bored with chatting. Otherwise it is in the traybar .. being idle
