I always found it slightly weird that only when someone started the sentence with MyNickname: I was getting highlighted and beeped… It was annoying.
Today I have found out that Irssi can beep & highlight You whenever someone triggers the keyword that You have setup in the program…
for example will highlight You whenever someone uses a word keyword. On the beginning, in the middle, at the end of sentence… It does not matter… You will get beeped even if the word is used inside a url or in case the word used contains keyword in the middle of it ;).

Fantastic… Irssi just simply rocks…
