You should always, always, always being using node IDs in preference to node titles.

    Oh, absolutely. Just remember that this organically-grown code base started off doing just the CB stats from an Xchat plugin, so the only info I had were nicks, not IDs. Only later did it morph to periodically retrieving from the PM server directly, after first having morphed into a standalone IRC client. So it's actually relatively recently that I even had access to the node IDs, but since everything seemed to work, I didn't really notice that there was this minor flaw :-)

    Re-writing from scratch might be an option one day. But not likely too soon. :-)
