Has anyone got experience of using this IRC program for macs?
I've never used a mac and I'm trying to help a friend who's reasonably new to irc. He's not happy that his whois gives his real name (including surname) and has no idea what he's set that's revealing this.
In mirc, it's simply the connection settings. I've tried to find out what I can on google, but that isn't much. Obviously it's no good me downloading the program as I wouldn't be able to install it. I joined the so called help channel on freenode but they're not much help at all.
What he really needs is a step by step guide to how he can stop his whois revealing his true identity, ie by entering rubbish info, and I have no idea how to help. Like I say, he's not very clued up about irc, although is anything but stupid in other respects.

Thanks sodaphish - unfortunately that link doesn't appear to be working.
...yeah, that's courtesy of Midcontinent Communications. Our last hosting providor shut-down and we're looking for a new provider -- until then, the box sits on a 1mb-up/1mb-down cable-modem which was down the better part of yesterday. Should be back up today.
