Skype speaks IRC

Did you know that Skype actually understand some of the IRC commands? I personally find the “alertsoff” command to be very useful for group chats. So while a direct contact gives me the usual pop up window, my group chats are now without alerts. This is much less disruptive. If you use Skype a lot it’s well worth looking into.

Available commands:
  /add [skypename]
   /topic [new topic]
/get creator
/get role
/whois [skypename]
/setrole [skypename] MASTER|HELPER|USER|LISTENER
/kick [skypename]
/kickban [skypename]
/get guidelines
/set guidelines [text]
/get options [text]
/set options [[+|-]flag] ...
/setpassword [password] [password hint]
/get password_hint
/set password_hint [text]
/set password [text]
/get banlist
/get allowlist
/set banlist [[+|-]mask] ...
/set allowlist [[+|-]mask] ...
  /alertson [text to match]
/call [skypename[,skypename,...]]
