mIRC's built-in "Easter eggs"

Written by sphere

This article covers what are referred to as "easter eggs" or "cookies" in mIRC. An easter egg is a little hidden trick that has no purpose other than to entertain the user. Half the fun of cookies is finding them yourself. if you want to find then yourself, alot of them are found with right-clicking, and a few of them are in the mIRC About dialog.
