Day 9 - Jedi Visual Studio IRC Add-in
Tonights application allows you to put IRC chat right into Visual Studio. The add-in behaves like any other dockable window. Personally I prefer it docked left and pinned open.
I had never written anything for IRC, nor had I ever written a Visual Studio plugin so it was another late night.
To "install", copy the contents of the ZIP file to your "My Documents/Visual Studio 2005/Addins" folder (create if it doesn't exist). After opening Visual Studio, you should have an options screen (Tools/Options/Jedi VS IRC), and a way to launch the IRC window under your Tools menu.

- Colors can't be sent or received. They are received as control characters in the chat. Rub3X should appreciate this.
