MIRC

A/S/L? LOL @mIRC #oldschool.

mIRC is an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client for Microsoft Windows created in 1995 and developed by Khaled Mardam-Bey.

Although it is a fully functional chat utility, its integrated scripting language makes it extensible and versatile.mIRC has been downloaded over 30 million times from CNETs Download.com service. Nielsen/NetRatings also ranked mIRC among the top ten most popular Internet applications in 2003.

How embarassing (sometimes narcissistic) are the screen names we give ourselves in the cyber world eg: S3Xy_Grl_15 or  jnr-R0ME0

We’d sneak dinner into our rooms for a marathon of keyboard gymnastics only to stay up all night chatting to the people we’d see at school the next morning.

It was “dial-up” days and I chuck mentals when I get disconnected mid way through sending a pic… what I’d give to see my chat history logs.
