Not much happening there. Where are you, Debianoids?
It wasn't my decision, I was a victim of circumstance
It wasn't right, I knew I never had a chance
My anger grew so ****** large it almost overcame
Pieces of a machine called education I plea for peace

what's IRC (before anyone says it, I'm not being sarcastic. I AM that clueless sometimes)
for as long as the world remains. for as long as time remains. so, too, will I remain. To serve. To help. And to make my contribution. Also, never forget our family at debianuserforums.org If we can't solve your problem, they probably can.

from what i know: install an IRC-client, for example xchat, and add the info given by Mez above. voila.
some usefull infos, it`s merely a short intro, are to be found in oswaldkelsos beginners guide. near to the bottom.
(i couldn`t squeeze out one bit of info from IRC so far, but that might be me)

I set up my irc client back when mez first posted. (google was my friend because I didn't know either.) for the first couple of weeks there was no traffic or information so I stopped logging in. I'll go back now and see what's there.

This is a nice addition, thank you. Btw, most people hang out in #debian.

A bit off-topic... I sometimes like to setup phpfreechat, for people to chat in an IRC-like environment through their browser, rather than asking people not familiar with IRC, to install and configure an IRC client.

That is a good idea. A irc webchat link on the main forum page. For those that are too impatient to wait for help on the forum.
