That is really nice since Konversation is the most noob-friendly and clean
IRC-client of them all. Switched to Xchat a few days ago bot Konversation is
nice too :D

That was a wish I came up with some day ago only did not posted it yet. Never
understood why you have to say it was an FTP while in front of it there was
the part ftp:// (maybe some http that could be FTP and the other way around,
and could someone explain what the different is and why that is?)

Same thing, hangs with the point above I guess. One and the same thing.

We all, at the moment I know one thing of it: not usable yet :P

Could someone confirm the problem of Sax2 resetting the display-resolution
while you only changed mouse-settings? If so I will check bugzilla for it
(lazy boy) and if not listed will report.

Now I see, you are taking MY point cb200f! Shall I take the logs?! Nasty
