Use random nick colors

Enable or disable random nick colors.

Random nick colors does not work for your own nick, only remote nicks: You can create a nick color rule using $me to set your own nick color.

Use extended color list

If enabled, the random nick color will be a full $rgb value (instead of just color 0-99), and if the color is to close to the background color, it will be inverted.

Note: miRC colors 16-35 will be reserved for event colors in this case and not look the same as other clients. $color will also return different values.
