Hello. Happy New Year! http://libircclient.sourceforge.net/ Here is an IRC library under LGPL, you can implement it in CF. the "whois" command can be used by players to find unmasked users' hosted games. This server technology is very basic, but you can develop it further, if you want. I'm still on for having a simpler way for players to find hosted games, that's why I gave this link to you.
