System recommendations: Any Macintosh or compatible computer with a 68020 or better processor running system version 7.1 or above. A 68000-based system like a Mac+ will not work. On systems lower than 7.5 you need to install the DragLib if you want to use drag-and-drop and the ThreadsLib and OpenTransport to enjoy the version control system (all available from Apple. smIRCle needs about 700KB for the 68K and about 900KB for the PPC version. Without virtual memory, the PPC version needs about 1.1MB, more if you are on a lot of channels at the same time.
