  2. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:38:24.036) ● ⫷04@jwheare⫸ i suspect what you're coming up against is less "i don't care about the spec" and more "i have a long standing client with a lot of of technical debt, things have worked very well for a long time, and changing things to be correct is harder than you might think"
  3. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:40:24.486) ● ⫷Herringway⫸ as a former user of the mirc scripting language I can confirm the technical debt
  4. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:40:41.856) ● ⫷jess⫸ i think i used mirc for 5 seconds many years ago
  5. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:42:55.905) ● ⫷04@jwheare⫸ there's clearly an element of spec misunderstanding too, but i don't think it's hostile

  10. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:45:43.676) ● ⫷launchd⫸ mIRC charges way too much for the product they give
  11. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:46:41.691) ● ⫷04@jwheare⫸ 20 bucks for a lifetime license is pretty low
  12. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:46:48.262) ● ⫷launchd⫸ and they also only support windows 🤮

  20. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:48:02.995) ● ⫷launchd⫸ I mean, I work for a company that makes closed source software
  21. 21(18/Feb/2021 20:48:07.965) ● ⫷westor07westor⫸ just use AdiIRC that's the #1 IRC client on the world right now
  22. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:48:13.315) ● ⫷launchd⫸ I'm not the libre police or anything
  23. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:48:27.315) ● ⫷launchd⫸ yeah isn't that pretty much free mIRC?
  24. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:48:27.504) ● ⫷04@jwheare⫸ $0 has nothing to do with libre
  25. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:48:42.779) ● ⫷launchd⫸ well yeah
  26. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:49:57.564) ● ⫷launchd⫸ anyway, I just don't want to pay for my IRC client when I can get one for free
  27. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:50:05.752) ● ⫷launchd⫸ not to mention I don't use windows
  28. 21(18/Feb/2021 20:50:06.254) ● ⫷westor07westor⫸ mIRC has 3 years license for $20
  29. 21(18/Feb/2021 20:50:08.778) ● ⫷westor07westor⫸ Question: Will my registration work with newer versions of mIRC?
  30. 21(18/Feb/2021 20:50:08.779) ● ⫷westor07westor⫸ Answer: If you are a home user, your registration entitles you to three years of free updates to new versions of mIRC. If you are a business user, you will need to renew your licenses yearly at a discount.
  31. 21(18/Feb/2021 20:50:27.555) ● ⫷westor07westor⫸ sucks
  32. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:50:35.681) ● ⫷launchd⫸ what business still uses IRC tbh?
  33. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:50:46.802) ● ⫷launchd⫸ slack is so much more convenient for everyone to use

  37. 16(18/Feb/2021 20:53:13.421) ● ⫷jess⫸ and like "what if someone reached out to him!" but that's a bit moot :P

  64. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:12:38.486) ● ⫷justJanne⫸ Regarding mIRC, I can fully understand their situation, it's a lot of effort to both handle backwards compatibility and new features at the same time. I've hit that issue often enough in quassel+droid
  65. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:13:22.297) ● ⫷justJanne⫸ Especially with their limited resources

  85. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:22:36.374) ● ⫷justJanne⫸ 8811FFwestor: I hate to put on that hat, but as a member of the tech board, *please* stop. Thanks.
  86. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:22:40.876) ● ⫷june⫸ also paying for software is good. textual and palaver are both good paid irc clients

  88. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:22:59.536) ● ⫷justJanne⫸ jess: the scripting is another issue
  89. 21(18/Feb/2021 21:23:01.670) ● ⫷westor07westor⫸ you started mate
  90. 21(18/Feb/2021 21:23:08.780) ● ⫷westor07westor⫸ thats the truth
  91. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:23:11.140) ● ⫷justJanne⫸ If you've got a scriptable client, you can't change internals easily
  92. 21(18/Feb/2021 21:23:12.219) ● ⫷westor07westor⫸ i won't continue btw
  93. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:24:17.266) ● ⫷Herringway⫸ I don't think it's unmoving at all. things like control codes and unicode saw much greater adoption on IRC thanks to mIRC implementing them, even if it wasn't the first to implement them
  94. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:25:15.922) ● ⫷justJanne⫸ It just can't move as agile and quickly as a new client might be able to. Bit that's fine
  95. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:25:20.549) ● ⫷justJanne⫸ *but
  96. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:25:55.008) ● ⫷jess⫸ justJanne: catalyst guidelines, dont pull rank unless you intend to utilise protocol level violence
  97. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:26:42.946) ● ⫷justJanne⫸ jess: I don't intend to utilise any violence :(
  98. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:27:45.421) ● ⫷justJanne⫸ generally said the whole issue with ossifying internals is part of why scripting in quassel has been happening so slowly, too. we don't have good internals, we'll have to clean them up before adding scripting or we're stuck forever
  99. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:27:51.564) ● ⫷jess⫸ Herringway: that's fair, i dont really use the client so it's a bit conjecture
  100. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:30:02.580) ● ⫷jess⫸ i tried to write msl once and i gave up
  101. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:32:26.186) ● ⫷Sadie⫸ mirc has been unfortunate lately given there's a mirc default alias that is just completely wrong and instead of fixing it khaled just blocked the error message inspircd sends so now no mirc users get invalid mode parameter messages
  102. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:32:31.404) ● ⫷june⫸ or just don't add scripting :)
  103. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:33:37.906) ● ⫷Herringway⫸ don't invent your own scripting language, at least
  104. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:34:23.401) ● ⫷june⫸ it's an anti-feature either way, but I know I'm in the minority on this
  105. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:35:49.956) ● ⫷justJanne⫸ adding scripting can be useful to add stuff like e.g. link titles/previews, or external notifications, or automated xdcc
  106. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:36:31.421) ● ⫷launchd⫸ i love weechat's python scripting
  107. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:40:42.459) ● ⫷jess⫸ i wouldn't be able to use a client that didn't support scripting
  108. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:40:49.058) ● ⫷jess⫸ but i do have quite unique needs
  109. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:41:36.044) ● ⫷jess⫸ weechat can't add things fast enough and some of it is too freenode-specific, etc.
  110. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:44:08.282) ● ⫷launchd⫸ I use scripting to handle my IRC push notifications
  111. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:51:17.446) ● ⫷jess⫸ we should standardise push notifications
  112. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:51:40.209) ● ⫷slingamn⫸ it's really hard :-(

  114. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:52:42.425) ● ⫷slingamn⫸ the push primitive (on both ios and android) is a relationship between the user and an app, not between the user and a third-party remote service
  115. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:53:08.649) ● ⫷slingamn⫸ on android, you can work around this using Web Push (i.e., the browser app loans out its relationship to arbitrary websites)
  116. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:53:09.427) ● ⫷june⫸ just send an email when you get a notification, then the email server can send a notification ;)

  125. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:58:05.504) ● ⫷slingamn⫸ basically Apple's model of the app store is that apps are like websites, not like desktop apps
  126. 16(18/Feb/2021 21:58:34.727) ● ⫷slingamn⫸ so clearly every IRC network should get its own app, and then it can send push notifications /s
