IRC tips/tricks?
 
I'v explored almost all the common things on the internet: P2P, AIM, MSN, etc... What i have never really messed with is IRC.

I know that XChat is the right client but can som1 give me a briefing as to the lingo, tools and general howto on navigating IRC?

Thanks.

If anybody could tell me which is the sound event in xchat when your nick is called is I'd appreciate it a lot.

It's not channel message is it? You can set it to beep when you receive a message.

Channel message is for evey message in the channel. Thing is I'm in a few potentially very high traffic channels so it gets really annoying. If my nick is _philip__ I had it working in gaim that when someone used _philip__ I hear this alarm going off that they're talking to me. I want this kind of behaviour. Or do I have to make a script for it?

Right click on the channel at the bottom then select beep on message.

That was it thanks! Set beep and then have a sound for beep set in preferences :)

Actually it doesn't work. Like I said that plays a sound on every message and I only want it when there's _philip__ (my nick) in someone else's message.
