Thanks to the article My Favorite Things: Mac apps by Jason Snell I’ve discovered a real nice, and free as in beer, IRC client which I’m enjoying.
It has been called Lingo → by the developer Johnathan Clough [the link takes you to the download page on the Mac AppStore].

As of today my preferred IRC client on OS X has been Colloquy, an old acquaintance of mine after my X-Chat day ended switching to Mac in 2006. Colloquy has been a reliable, open source project that never failed me (almost) in these 8 years.
More recently I’ve had the chance to also evaluate Textual… which I did not like at all!!! Being a paid app my expectations were probably a bit too high… Both the gratis apps Colloquy and Lingo – to my usage – have proved to be more feature rich, both in terms of customization and offered functionalities.
Lingo, since my epiphany of it last monday, has been running smoothly and without a single hitch on two of my Mac connected on the FreeNode servers and logged on seven channels (a couple with a discrete amount of daily traffic). So here I am singing its praises!
TradePub today sent me an email (as one of their subscribers’ list) telling me of the availability of the e-book “Criptography for Dummies” by Chey Cobb for free (normally it’s priced at nearly 24$). So I thought pointing you to the download page where – after a registration or an authentication via LinkedIn –you can grab it…
If you can tell the day by the things that happens in the morning this will be a good one… At last OnyX, my favorite french software utility for Mac OS X maintenance has been updated — along with it’s sisters applications Maintenance and Deeper) to a full Yosemite compatibility. Download now!
