in thread At what rate are YOU progressing?

Dominus, do you know how merlyn spends his time in IRC? I don't think so (I don't either), but I guess you have prejudice about how IRC is going on. It's not that all channels are just crap talk. If you e.g. take a look at most of the channels that reside in Open Projects Network you can find a lot of useful information there - mostly channels for opensource projects coordination. So I think accusing using IRC is a waste of time is simply a wrong assumption.

Btw., is it just me or did merlyn's post read like adminspotting? *eg*

Update:Sorry, Dominus, if I got you wrong. If it was meant with sarcasm or so then I didn't get it. I was just writing what I tried to interpret from your writing or between the lines. If I misinterpreted it: Again, sorry.
use signature; signature(" So long\nAlfie");

    That's a bit unfair to Dominus. He and I are often in channel at the same time, talking back and forth even. I think he knows what I do on IRC pretty well.
