FYI, version 2.0 is a paid upgrade (50% of the full price). This wasn't clearly mentioned on the main page, nor here in the update notice on 6/10/09.

Abandonware.. Conceited is gone.. The website is gone. The app on the Mac Appstore is all that remains of them. Best to consider other options now.

Was a good app while it lasted, but it looks like the company is now gone.

Newest version is supposedly 2.4.2 but linked file is 2.4.1. Also, the latest release on developer's website is 2.4.1.

I think 2.4.2 went app store only without warning. Usually sparkle has been good about letting me know about updates. This time, it seems like 2.4.1 is the latest for non app store licenses.

This update fixed one major bug I was having an introduced a new one. Now when editing a connection, I cannot add new channels by clicking the + or right clicking the connection name and choosing new channel from the menu. I have console output saved, but I don't remember what the email addy is to send it to.

My one and only problem has always been the amount of memory this app sucks up. It uses 500-600mb, I had to turn all the cool features off such as images, youtube, scroll back to 100 and yet the ram usage was extremely high forcing me to ditch this app for another.

anyone else having issues with using linkinus? Nobody can see what im typing in the irc channels, like im invisible. I can only see what they are saying, and sometimes that doesnt even work. Some channels topics wont even be displayed. I tried reinstalling both the application and the operating system, reformatting the harddrive. still no go. whats the deal, I wanna use linkinus.

Why would you give it a 4.5 star rating if it doesn't even fulfill its primary purpose?

Does this version finally enable identd? The last time I tried Linkinus it was specifically for this feature, and not only was identd NOT enabled, but I couldn't connect to ANY network. At least my current client eventually connects after a delay of close to a minute.

You may want to either enable identd systemwide on your Mac or tell Linkinus to wait logner beofre timing out and giving up on connecting, You can do so on a per-conncetion basis by typing /timeout 120 (for a 120s timeout).

>CONCEITED You may want to either enable identd systemwide I, and I'm sure many others would be grateful for easy to follow instructions for doing this. I myself have tried: 1) Authorize identd 2) Ident Service 3) IdentD #3 was the only one that worked when installed, but failed after a Mac OS upgrade. So a method for enabling identd is still very needed! And right now, an IRC client with a built in wait is MUCH more convenient than Linkinus.

Linkinus does have a built-in wait like I mentioned earlier, using /timeout. We could build identd inside Linkinus, but that world mean needing superuser permissions, and my guess is most people don't want that. An other thing we could do is automatically adjust the wait/timeout when detecting an ident check attempt. Not sure if this would help you at all. Please let us know!

IdentD works fine here on Intel OS X 10.6.6. Maybe you need to reinstall it after your OS upgrade; that's what I did. Works beautifully.

>CONCEITED We could build identd inside Linkinus, but that world mean needing superuser permissions, and my guess is most people don't want that. Anything is better than not connecting. YES! Implement it for those that want/need it. For those that have found another solution, they can ignore it. >YOUNKIT IdentD works fine here on Intel OS X 10.6.6. Maybe you need to reinstall it after your OS upgrade. Been there, done that, I can't get it to work, and MANY others have reported the same thing. So many, in fact, that the developer stopped answering e-mail. I strongly suspect it is an OS X thing, but the developer should try to work it out with Apple, but then again, Apple doesn't seem to care to work out OS X thingies, in fact they make more of them with each release.

What is it with Mac IRC client developers and greed? First Snak reneges on their promise of "free lifetime" upgrades, and now we have Linkinus charging nearly full price for minor upgrades. It's as though they *want* us to continue using open source software by shooting themselves in the feet with their pricing schemes. This is too bad; I'd love to try Linkinus, but there is no way I will get caught up in some (evidently) annual fee just to use the latest bugfix of the software.

Our company charges for major upgrades only and has never ever charged for minor upgrades. To clarify, the only upgrade that way ever paid was the major 1.x to 2.x upgrade (with a 50% discount for 1.x licensees, and a fully free 2.x upgrade for recent 1.x licensees). 2.0 was released more than two years after 1.0. All software companies have the exact same policy.

The reply by the developer is correct regarding upgrades, although I do not agree with the, "All software companies have the exact same policy" comment. I had erroneous information regarding Linkinus' update policy. I regret the error.
