I'm due to either pay $20 to the developer of MIRC or stop using it soon. (Its excellent, and worth $20 for its value-added commercial feature e.g. uPNP)

I happy to pay since it offers SSL/TLS - which is material to our work here.

I'll pay -- if W3C will upgrade its IRC server and firewalls to offer the SSL mode of IRC (like they already do for ssh), and this group agrees to try to actually use it.

e.g. try SSL at irc://irc.indymedia.org:+6697/

otherwise I’ll use the irc in opera client - to show some solidarity with a group member. (Does it support ssl with irc?) I’ve already used Opera Unite anew, to host a public profile, a webserver running in the browser, and setup a web proxy. As I learn, the proxy will use the apache webserver running in Cygwin process on Windows 2008 EE, on the same host as the browser – so public resources are all “open source”. Slowly, Ill try to turn on https flows (including SSL MITM or CONNECT https) in all this.
