I don't believe Bitchx reads variables like your shell does. Try putting what you have down there in your .profile

future reference, for .bitchxrc, it would be:

Code: Select all

set VARIABLE some string or other
and, irrc, it would be just NICK, SERVER, and NAME if you set it in .bitchxrc instead of .profile. though i could be wrong.
