HILIGHT in Irssi… Just when I thought that Irssi cannot get any better…

Hi all.

I always found it slightly weird that only when someone started the sentence with MyNickname: I was getting highlighted and beeped… It was annoying.

Today I have found out that Irssi can beep & highlight You whenever someone triggers the keyword that You have setup in the program…

/HILIGHT keyword

for example will highlight You whenever someone uses a word keyword. On the beginning, in the middle, at the end of sentence… It does not matter… You will get beeped even if the word is used inside a url or in case the word used contains keyword in the middle of it ;).

To find out more about the magic HILIGHT command use:


Fantastic… Irssi just simply rocks…
