mIRC is too troublesome and EXTREMELY dangerous in terms of hackers with people who aren't behind a good firewall. Guaranteed, if it's worth having a snowmobile chat on there, it already exists. People who are knowledgeable, don't want to be bothered by live chat. Gives them time to respond and do more research before replying to a help question. Nothing like having 10 people bombard someone at the same time who's well known as a good mechanic. In my opinion, anyway.
