My Adobe AIR IRC client has a new repository home. Git is awesome as is github. Also added some bug fixes associated with ipv6 and action highlights. Going to add bnc and SSL support soon!


The link log for Diomedes IRC resolves URL shortners, fetches page titles and header information. Now you’ll never have to worry about clicking a scary link again! Rick rolls are a thing of the past. :)

Can your IRC client do this?


I just got another email by Softpedia. It had the exact same text for my irc client as the last one except now they’re adding me to the Windows section. Funny thing is this time whoever looked at my app clearly didn’t know that the Mac version of their site had added me already and went ahead and produced more screenshots. The screenshots produced for the Windows section are all pretty terrible and they just went ahead and copy and pasted my help section. Had he known about the earlier addition, he could have used the better description and screenshots added for the Mac portion of the site.

In other related news, “I use this” has added the client too.

Also since my Macbook is still in the shop, I can’t get any work done on it. :(


Softpedia has added my Adobe AIR app, Diomedes IRC client to their website! I didn’t even apply. Wonder how they found out about it. Maybe found it on the Adobe AIR marketplace? In any case, it’s pretty interesting. First of all, they added to the Mac section even though since it was built on Adobe AIR it is cross platform and works on Windows and Linux too. They took several screenshots, and seem to know their way around IRC.  Unlike they do not host the file, they link to my file on my site. They also have cleared the software of being spyware free, which is great.

I get to use this fancy badge:
