Cool. Please don't post context-free messages though - not everyone
knows that you were talking about IRC. (Part of that is because your
subject line didn't mention IRC either.)

If you're going to do a lot with IRC, I would recommend either picking
up a dedicated IRC library, or reading up on the protocol. You'll need
to understand the exact limitations and restrictions, how to properly
escape things, etc, etc, etc, if you're going to talk over a plain
socket. It's not a difficult protocol to use, but you should learn its
subtleties. (Or just grab a library.)
