Loading Ready Talk - LRR's IRC Chat! [UPDATED 11/28/07]

Postby Alex Steacy » 31 Jan 2007, 17:52

Howdy, everyone! For your chatting and discussion needs, we've opened up an irc chat channel. It's very lightly moderated, so just treat it like the forums. Oh, and so far we have only one real rule to stand by, and that is to keep heated debates out of the channel, to be carried out elsewhere.

Thanks!

For those of you new to IRC, download the client and grab some support:

Windows users: http://www.mirc.com
Mac users: http://www.colloquy.com/

Connect to:

irc.arg-irc.net

Port 6667

#loadingreadyrun

NOTE: Please tell me if I've made any mistakes, so I can correct them.

Basically, the LRR cast would be up for it - as long as they didn't have do to any work or schedule stuff or anything.

There's also been a discussion of online voice chat, but I don't have the ability to do that, so I'm against it.

http://www.zirc.org/chat/

It's pretty popular. I don't know how you reserve a channel on it, though. It's what Pharyngula uses for its chat site.

Well, supposing I were to open an irc channel now? Just on some ordinary server, and people could drop in and out to chat until something official comes up?

How about this:

irc.blitzed.org

Port 6667

#loadingreadyrun

I'm there now. Let's see if anyone wants to talk :D

You've never used Irc?

Are you on Windows or OSX?

You just need to get an irc client. It's sort of like an instant messenger program, only not.

I think MIRC is the popular one on windows.

Simplest way is to use the web chat option.

Go to http://www.blitzed.org/ , click on the Web Chat option on the left of the screen, put in the name you want to be known under, and type "loadingreadyrun" in the channel blank.

Oh... I understand even less now.

I think it's fairly obvious that I have NO fucking clue what I'm doing when it comes to computers. You can give me step-by-step instructions if you want. But you don't have to. :P

EDIT: thank you, Melendwyr!

I used to use IRC when I had a dreamcast. There's much better ways to chat than that now....

There are only two people there. How can there be too many connections?

"I swear it," said the other mother. "I swear it on my own mother's grave."

"Does she have a grave?" asked Coraline.

"Oh yes," said the other mother. "I put her in there myself. And when I found her trying to crawl out, I put her back."

Try again, and avoid the use of numbers. That was Emma's problem. We guess.

I just tried the way Melendwyr said, and it gave me the "too many connections" bit too... I didn't even use any number in my name, either :?

Yeah, no numbers for me...the second time I tried, it let me join, and has said "Loading Data" for a few minutes, and that's all.
