    5858=== Is there a way to see my sent history as well as to navigate around in the existing text with the arrow keys? === 
    59 Sent history is controlled by the up/down arrow keys while holding option, switching between panes in a window with command-up/down, and scrolling with home/end/page up/page down; you can use any other key combination to navigate or select text. Change this within the [wiki:Documentation/TipsAndTricks/HiddenPreferences hidden preferences].

     100=== DALnet === 
     101 * Some DALnet servers require running an ["Documentation/TipsAndTricks/Identd" ident server]. 
     102 * Some of the servers in the network are reserved for certain regions (some EU servers are scandinavian only for example). 
     103 * Also we were told that some of the servers in the network are known to be unable to connect to for some users (there will be absolutely nothing in your console, even if you had it open while trying to connect), this is not a Colloquy issue. This concerns servers with "ix" in there name, also some european servers and maybe others, too. Look at this [http://www.dal.net/servers list of alternative servers] and connect to them directly instead of connecting to `irc.dal.net` (for example we found `punch.va.us.dal.net` to be working). 
     104 
     105=== EFnet === 
     106 * Most EFnet servers require running an ["Documentation/TipsAndTricks/Identd" ident server].
