No sign of you on phishy.net. You don't seem to have your nickname
registered? Anyway... someone is looking into the port : 80 option at the
moment. I think to have port 80 open on the IRC server the ircd would have
to be run from root - which causes certain problems :) I'll let you know as
soon as I come up with something.

P.S - I'll be on phishy.net for the rest of the evening as "abe" if you or
anyone else wishes to contact me.
