I've recently gotten IRC to work on my dinosaur of a computer and I
popped into the #swatkats channel.  I wasn't surprised that it was
empty, but I did notice the "topic", which was "dia dhuit =^^=".

Can anyone shed some light on the meaning of this topic?

       I have no idea and I'm the channel founder!  Hard Drive must have
set it.  Hey Hard Drive, what does it mean?!  <G>

"Dia dhuit" is Irish Gaelic for "God to you", which is their way of saying
hello.  I use that word and "Slan" (Good bye) frequently on the IRC.

I keep going to #swatkats frequently, but there is never anyone there.  I'm
going to try to go there again now and off and on today.
