How do you set status? (e.g. sleep, Mitte!Mitte!, etc.)
Note that I am using Colloquy on a Mac. Thanks!

most people just change their nicks to reflect their status. to do that, type

/nick Kovalchuck|sleep
...or whatever you'd like to change it too

it's just a few people who actually mark themselves as away -- in my client it turns your name grey in the names list. it doesn't make as much sense to do that since it takes a few minutes to go into effect, and people usually don't notice, so they can't say good-bye to you or welcome you back. and that's no fun. if you'd like to use those commands, though, they're intuitive enough:

Some clients don't have the /back command and just work with you doing /away again.

Yeah, that was what I was used to. /back too awhile for me to figure out.

I thought it was for private messaging to people. As it usually says "XYZ is away"

But yeah
Code:
/nick UnMarth|MitteMitte
Then, to change it back
Code:
/nick UnMarth
Pretty trivial.

Unmarth: You see aways in WHOISs and it's messaged when you PM someone while their away, some clients also track it in the userlists.

On this note ... does the IRC server support the register nick command?

Yes it does. You just type:

Code:
/msg nickserv register (password) (email)
Nickserv has some other cool features, just

/msg nickserv help

For a list. If you see me on irc, feel free to ask me questions :D

Yes (as monkster said) and I'd highly advise you to do so.
