I'm using irssi for my IRC client, and whenever I connect to a channel (e.g.,
#whatwg), it greets me with the line and I've tried the command line
0:22 -!- <nick> [~firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #whatwg
I do not want my real
hostname username there (i.e.,
kalaracey). How do I change this, so that
kalaracey isn't there; i.e., everybody doesn't match that name with my IP.
irssi --hostname=<hostname> and
irssi -h <hostname. I've also done, inside irssi,
/set hostname <hostname> and, when adding a server,
/server add -host <hostname> -network <network> <address>.
EDIT: Just realized what I want to hide is my username, NOT my hostname. Thanks @DaveC.
