    Hey guys! I've just set up an IRC channel to use for random chats. IRC is a like a chat room. Here's how to use it.

    1. Go to >>> http://webchat.quakenet.org/
    2. Type in a nickname for yourself (no spaces, use _)
    3. In channel, type #C&H PASSWORD*** e.g. #C&H student
    4. and that's it!
    ***Please PM me or our three resident OPs (Pygmalion, Davidius or Konata) for the password. Preferably, one of them :p

    If you like IRC and want to use a program instead (which has more options, and an ability to turn on sound so you know when there's new messages)

    To start simply download mIRC here and install as you would any other program

    Run IRC and select Tools > Options. This screen should be the first thing you see upon running the program

    Fill in the basic details; i.e. Your alias, an alternative (just in case great minds think alike) and e-mail

    Click the "Servers" tab. Open the "QuakeNet" folder and select a server

    Go back to the "Connect" tab and click connect

    Finally click Commands > Join channel

    Insert "#C&H" into the field and there you go!


    Anyone else with @ before their name is an admin in the room. Be nice!

    great idea onion for those of us who can't use msn.

    is there not a boards.ie rule against advertising sites outside this one?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,893 ✭✭✭Davidius


    I would but every IRC channel I visit collapses under the sheer weight of how great I am.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,426 ✭✭✭Arcade Panda

    When it's got to do with supporting and expanding the community, it's fine. Fighting Games have one, that's where I got the idea.

    You should come anyway. I'll kick you if the walls start to give way.

    It's a really easy system. Basically it's a channel set up on a server, and it relays messages between different computers attached to that channel. boards.ie used to have one but eh... Well, bubbles happened. :P

    By the way Q is our bot. He sits there and minds the channel for us so no one can steal the name C&H. He also has a few other uses :P
    Type
    /msg Q HELP
    
    for a list of commands which you might find handy.

    At the very,very bottom there's a text bar, it's hard enough to see because it's not really distinctive or a different colour and it's only teeny. :)

    Took me ages to figure it out :o

    To be fair some of the stuff being discussed isn't particularly child-friendly.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,893 ✭✭✭Davidius
