/me retracts that, after reading Bryan's reply and realizing you're
talking about the conversation window, in which case, I wrote it.

I made the change to search from the bottom, my IRC tab would be blue,
and I wanted to Ctrl-F my name and not have to bother with messages I
said two days ago.

You're the first person yet to be annoyed, confused, and disserviced
by this. Is there a particular reason you want to see the oldest
messages first?
