Have you ever been sitting in #everything, and someone points out some node from heaven, but you don't want all that bother with moving hands and switching windows?

Have you ever been chatting on IRC and someone asks you some question, such as "What does PCMCIA stand for?", and you quickly need an answer from the world's greatest database thingy so you still appear to be enlightened and intelligent?

You haven't? Oh, well, I have. And now Zerotime has created a way to open E2 nodes from mIRC, and burnboy has refined it to actually work well!

After following this guide, the world of Everything2 will be yours with a simple swift /e2 from within mIRC.

Step 1:

In mIRC, Click Tools, then Aliases. (Or press Alt-A, whatever does it for you)

Step 2:

Paste the following into the window on a new line:

    /e2 //run http://everything2.com/index.pl?node= $+ $1-

Step 3:

There is no step 3.

Usage: (Anywhere in mIRC)

    /e2 This is the node you want opened

Also, standard disclaimer: This is all at your own risk... blah blah etc. If using this makes your computer explode, don't blame me.

Have fun!
