What older language is IceChat written in? I noticed reference to "older language" elswhere in this forum as well, but no reference to  what that "older language" actually is.

About commitment: why don't you release the source code so that anyone with enough spare time and knowledge could try to fix it? At this moment, it seems you are writing IceChat alone. Given the features and probable complexity of the project it seems the project would largely benefit from additional workforce  :-).

Anyway, I will be around the irc channel as much as I can, hopefully we'll meet there as well (you seem to be away most of the time).

IceChat is written in Visual Basic 6.
And I will not release the source code for the project.
I tried making IceChat 6 open source (code still available on SourceForge) and I did not get a single person to help out, so I see no reason to believe I would get help with the project. It is by my own choice, and I just prefer to keep the source closed.

I hope I can meet up with you in the channel soon then.
