given that #evolt is a melting pot where almost anything goes, it doesn't 
seem appropriate to treat it as a "formal" place of discussion - theforum 
does that right now.  If we decide to go the route of increasing formality 
for our chat channel(s), we can publicly log stuff then, but I personally 
don't think publicly logging #evolt right now is appropriate.

hehe - we have a bot in there (an eggdrop, actually) which logs everything 
and makes stats.  See http://neuro.me.uk/ircstats/evolt.html

use an IRC client, such as mIRC, X-Chat, BitchX, ircII, Crikey, Trillian, 
etc.  Oh, d'oh. you said you had mIRC already :)

irc.evolt.org #evolt

some clients respond to irc://irc.evolt.org/evolt :)
