Well, that is quite probable, Jester.

And I vote to stay with what we have. I have ZERO idea how to use IRC or even what it IS... But I like what we have now. Simple to use and everything.

Hmm, I'd be up for it, if I can get my IRC program to work. My old virus software seemed to disagree with it. I think it's all better now, but I haven't given it a test to know for sure. I'll be back and forth from the comp for a while, so if anyone else is up for it, maybe you could post a note in here, and I'll see it when I stop back by.

Hello everybody and welcome to the great Chat-move.

From today on, we’ll be using IRC as well as Kenton’s chat room to chat. Many of you might ask something along the lines of „Why the hell do you change chat rooms?“ Well, many of the members had connection issues, like they were being disconnected without being noticed and missed a lot. Then there were lags and issues concerning changing nicknames. Also, on IRC we’re able to have a working fliesharing system, so we can exchange pictures way easier than before.

That’s history on IRC. Now, many might be Über-confused with IRC, that’s why this tutorial is here. Now, getting on IRC is rather difficult the first time, but once you’re there It’s a matter of two mouse clicks.

Downloading and installing mIRC
  1. go to Mirc.org and download mIRC 6.16 from one of the New York-Servers.
  2. Install the program
  3. Run the installed program
  4. Fill in your personal details and click OK
  5. The window will close and a grey “Favorites”-box will appear

Joining servers and channels
  1. Cancel that “Favorites”-box
  2. Type /server irc.irchighway.net at the bottom of the big white window you see and press “Enter”.
  3. A lot of writing will appear. Don’t pay attention to that.
  4. The favorites-window will appear again. Cancel that again
  5. Again, at the bottom of the big white window (where all the writing appeared), write /join #thetechnodrome and press enter
  6. Now you’re on our channel.
  7. Add our channel to your favorites, so that you don’t have to go through all this next time you join

Basic commands on the channel
  • /me: Everything following that is an emotion like *shrugs*
  • /ctcp: Lets you access a certain fileserver.
  • /nick followed by your new nickname lets you change your nickname

Downloading on IRC
  • THIS IS A ONCE ONLY THING: Go to "Tools" and click on the little + next to "DCC". Subemenus will be visible. Go to "Ignore" and set it to "Disable". Click OK
  1. Type !list
  2. A lot of writing will appear. Look out for the parts starting with /CTCP
  3. Copypaste one of those CTCP-triggers. NOTE: The text is highlighted, you just don't see the highlighting.
  4. Click "accept"
  5. Use IRC-commands to navigate through the folders.

IRC-commands
  • dir:Shows you the content of a folder (folders are marked by not having a file extension and their names are written in CAPS)
  • cd: followed by a foldername takes you into that folder
  • cd..: takes you back one folder
  • get: followed by a filename (sans the filesize) starts the download for the file you requested.

NOTE: This tutorial is not complete yet and the imagesharing is not active yet. To get that working, we'll have to change server, but Kid A and I will first have to test that. Meanwhile quakenet will have to do.

Oops... And I even started yelling at him...

Anyway, if you are, for some odd reasons, against using mIRC or you have slight problems with understanding it, you can use Chatzilla. It's even easier than mIRC and all you have to do is to have Mozilla or Firefox.

Downloading and installing Chatzilla

1. Check out this site.
2. Download your plugin from this site.
3. Install it.
4. Find "Chatzilla" in "Tools" section, in the upper bar. Launch it.
5. You'll be asked to type your name and e-mail somewhere there, if you're logging for the first time. Maybe. Or not. Not sure. Maybe not. Oh well.
6. In *client* tab, you have list of networks. Type "/server irc.irchighway.net" at the bottom of the big white window you see and press “Enter”.
7. Choose your nick here.
8. You are now in "irchighway.net" tab. Wait for a "User mode for YOURNICK is now +i" to appear after a rather long text. Type "/join #thetechnodrome"
9. Et voila!

You can use or the commands Anarky's provided above.

Have fun.

EDIT: I corrected a mistake with server name.

Aren't we on irchighway instead of quakenet? Anyhow, I'm all for the IRC goodness.

Ugh, everybody who was on the IRC last night. The Quakenet-server is no longer used. We're on IRChignway now.

Just follow the instructions above please.

Why? This one works great, and there's no connection issues and then there's the possibility of filetransfers... And it's really easy once you get there.

I see there's a lot of religion discussion going on in the IRC. I just want to point out that whatever you say in the chat will not be reflected on your status here on the boards. However, please refrain from bringing grudges held on members in the chat over to this board. Just a little warning.
