mIRC Easter Egg - Xyzzy

1) Open up mIRC
2) Type in command "/xyzzy"

mIRC will show up a message "Nothing happens." in red.

Quote from Jargon: "The canonical ‘magic word’. This comes from ADVENT, in which the idea is to explore an underground cave with many rooms and to collect the treasures you find there. If you type xyzzy at the appropriate time, you can move instantly between two otherwise distant points. If, therefore, you encounter some bit of magic, you might remark on this quite succinctly by saying simply “Xyzzy!” “Ordinarily you can't look at someone else's screen if he has protected it, but if you type quadruple-bucky-clear the system will let you do it anyway.” “Xyzzy!” It's traditional for xyzzy to be an Easter egg in games with text interfaces."
