    I would like to remind people that most of the commands are for IRC versions 6 and above. Silence, I am a little unsure about the Knock and Rules commands. I tried putting them into both 5.9 and 6.0 versions of IRC but both said unknown commands. But an excellent post none-the-less. I'll be awaiting your next tutorial.
    You\'re only jealous coz the voices talk to me and not you!!!!

    The version depends on your cleint... your probably thinking of a certain client that is 6.0, but the knock command works well in most clients that i know of, the rules command however doesnt work all the time.
