Summary: Make it easier to switch servers
previously I used saberhagen.freenode.net to connect to
IRC. Now I think it is better to let
irc.eu.freenode.net decide which regional server I
should connect to. Trying to switch the server was a
pain. If I had just gone the obvious route and changed
the setting in "Tools - Accounts - Modify" I would have
lost all subscribed groups and logs (I did that once).
To prevent that I opened the following files in an
editor: accounts.xml, accels and blist.xml and replaced
every occurence of saberhagen.freenode.net with
irc.eu.freenode.net. Furthermore I renamed the log
directory accordingly. I think this should be easier
to do and via the GUI. I set to category IRC for now
but this might apply to others as well. I also think
this is borderline bug instead of RFE considering the
unexpected result when one goes the "official" route.
