    10. create file called .profile

    use the below info in your .profile

    alias mmiphone="BitchX -A -n username -c \ #ModMyI irc.moofspeak.net"

    export IRCNICK="username"
    export USER="username"
    export IRCUSER="username"

    export IRCFINGER="Finger this, *******!"

    echo "Welcome to Darwin!"
    PS1="iPhone$ "
    11. cahnge the above <username> to your irc nick of choice I use mrengles

    12. Restart Term-vt100 or type in terminal "source .profile" without quotes

    To edit .profile I had used "Textmate" then put it back in the folder. After that, i'm kind of stuck. I don't know how to "restart Term-vt100"... don't know what that means. Also, the terminal you're talking about is in OS X or the iphone? Nothing happens when I type that stuff in either. Trying to connect to BitchX i get "Nickname is not registered yet"... and unable to connect to port 6667 of server irc.weblook2k.com

    what version of terminal are you using?

    Term-vt100 (158-4) works the best. The newer version (161-1) from installer.app just plain sucks!

    use the download.... its Term-vt100 (158-4) i just renamed it to Terminal.app

    ps. its not a chat room (AOL) its irc (Channel) =) n00b

    hmm Ive been using touchterm which im liking alot, it was supposed to be 3.99 on the app store but i never got charged for it when the reciept came through it was 0.00 so yeah!

    anyways im noticing the bitchx client needs a tab bit more work, however it is a great port.

    just FYI to all you new to bitchx, /detach will detach you from the bitchx session but leave it up and running in the background to resume at any time just type scr-bx. you can be on irc 24/7 this way.
