Recommended Posts

First you will need to download mIRC, you can get it from here.

you will need to choose the closet location to where you live.

after you download mIRC open it up and follow the instructions from the mIRC v.6.16 install wizard.

enter your information in the fields provided to include a valid email address. I recommend using a nick name as the full name for privacy. The nick name is what you wish to be known as while logged into mIRC. You must also pick an alternative nick name in case your first nick name is already being used.

next you need to add orobas.ny.us.delinked.us on port 6667 as a new server. To do so put a check mark in “New Server Window’ and then click on Connect to Server. Now enter orobas.ny.us.delinked.us to ‘IRC Server:’ and 6667 to ‘Port(s)’

once this is done you can connect to mIRC

Nice one MP, very informative.

Quick tip though, if you are taking a screenshot of an active window, press Alt as well as Print Screen, it saves a lot of work and means you won't see any slivers of the desktop around images. :shocking:
