I've read the faq on IRC basics and chatzilla setup but still haven't been able to get this to work. I get "erroneous nickname"

I set up nickname and username in chatzilla to match adisc username and I am using adisc password.

Could it be that the IRC username and nicknames must start with letters, not numbers? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Here's the chatzilla log:

You've got it. IRC nicks can have numbers but can't start with them.

I did not know that. I wonder why. It sounds like a weird, for lack of a better term, "feature."

Thanks, Trevor, I figured that was the case. I've tried another IRC client a few months ago and it balked also, so I figured it was a limitation of the IRC protocol.
