    Ehm you're sure you want to develop a IRC server in Visual Basic? I mean, one essential feature you need to use is multi threading and have you ever heard of a real multi threaded VB app which runs really stable? it's a pain in the *** do create multi threaded components which doesn't violate the COM contract (and no, just using the CreateThread API isn't very...good ;-)).

    And a IRC server w/o multi threading...uhm...?

    Why bother to create your own ircd when other (better) ones exist?

    Two things have come out of Berkeley, Unix and LSD.
    It is uncertain which caused the other.

    Dancer IRCd works quite well and is full featured.
    Debian - because life's too short for worrying.
    Best. (Python.) IRC bot. ever.
