You can optimize
your IRC experience with a few simple configurations. The following configurations
to your client application are recommended:
- Fonts. Set
options to display text in a large, easy to read font.
- Nicknames. You will need to chose a nickname for
your identity on IRC. Chose a name that will be unique. On DALnet nicknames
can only be owned
by one person, so you have to register a unique name.
- Display options. Set your program options so it
doesn't display messages when people join
and leave the channel, since these messages frequently interrupt the
conversation. Check your program preferences or settings to find this option.
