    hi dion,


    most people don’t realize (not saying that you didn’t know) that most IM programs(MSN, YAHOO) use I.E as the underlying RENDER/connect engine.

    BTW, does anyone know of an IRC client which can connect through corporate firewalls ? I’d like to get onto the ruby on rails IRC but cannot since our corporate firewall doesn’t let anything but 80/443.

    You can set up something like cgi-irc:
    on a webserver outside the firewall or set up something like
    If you don’t have the option to run it on your own server i know that there are companys who provide it as a service and i think there are some free ones as well. I can’t remember who they are.

    You could also do a search for “CGI:IRC Login” and the server name/network you want access to. Some run cgi-irc without any restrictions on servers you can connect to or channels you can join.
