Sweetness.  My computer is about to die, and then I have rehearsal, but I'll be there around 10:15-ish.

EDIT: I'm in EST, just so you know.

By the by, we're getting some thing straightened out when it comes to team leadership, the main op for IRC is Ravenite with other ops being ktx, ERICSSJ, and travislopes. I know a little about IRC, but can definitely organize some things in the forums. I don't know, maybe Minister of Emoticons? smile

Hey, thanks again, but I seem to be having problems connecting to irc.moofspeak.net.

I am trying to use Colloquy as suggested above, but I am unable to connect to the server, let alone join a room.

Thanks in advance for the help.

In Colloquy:

PS once you're in, don't forget to add #orangeslice to your "favorites" (like bookmarks) by:

File - Favorites ->Add #orangeslice

then #orangeslice will be saved to the File - Favorites menu and you won't have to ype your password in every time

the irc channel header (?) reads "If you are logging on for the first time please PM a OP or Admin to confirm you identity. Please do not make fake accounts to spy," but who's a OP or Admin, how do you tell in colloquy?

I'm signed on to IRC as "etphonehome". For the truly paranoid, I recommend registering your IRC nick with NickServ so that anyone trying to impersonate you can be kicked. To do so, run the following command:

/msg NickServ register {password} {email}

Fill in the password field with a password you do not use for anything else, as it is transmitted in the clear.

---------------------------------------------

Then when you log in, do the following to identify yourself:

/msg NickServ identify {password}

---------------------------------------------

Finally, to kick someone who has taken your nick and then get yours back:

/msg NickServ recover {nick} {password}
/msg NickServ release {nick} {password}
/nick {nick}

My 2¢.

I've only used IRC once and a whole bunch of people yelled at me and told me that I had been warned before and then booted me out sad

Am at work... so am on Windows machine... seem to be having connection issues. Not sure if it is my unfamiliarity with IRC or something more sinister smile
