New Chat Room... Same day, same time!

People, we have chat!

Looks like Kyle was kind enough to provide us with a new chatroom in time for our Wednesday night session.

I will be there Wednesday night, 10PM EST, as long as work permits. Again, I urge any of you who haven't had a chance to try it out, to come and join us! We always have a great time. We talk about plants, work out plant trades, and just goof around!

The chat program is completely new to me. This is the only place I chat! Any of you folks who have experience with this new chatroom have any tips for me. Does it work the same way? Anything I should know? I don't want to get shut out!

Mike

Seems like its an IRC chat system, which is good because we can login using our favorite IRC software.

Here is the server info:
Server: irc.ircstorm.net
port: 6667
Channel: #theplantedtankchat

IRC can be more complicated than straight chat because you can do so much more with it but its more or less the same. Google for IRC and you will find more than you want to know about IRC.

Mike,

I will try to be there... Having some firewall issues with the new chat so if I can get them sorted out I will be in.... I used it this morning at home and it worked fine, just like the old chat....

No, you dont have to, theres a link at the top of the forum for a java chat client, that should be good enough for most people.

If you want to have full IRC capabilities (scripting, file transfers to name a couple) then you would need a seperate IRC sofware. I use http://www.hydrairc.com, its free and pretty easy to use. The most popular IRC client by far though is http://www.mirc.com Its not free, but it only gives you a nag screen after the 30 trial period expires.
