Any guys waht to try organise an IRC meeting one night?
I can set up a chanel now that a uni firewall isn't blocking me, or anyone else can at any time anyway.
If people are interested we'll organise a time & a day to hold this thing.
Yep the oz.org server and #fordforums room
It'll be much easier to do once a few things John is planning come online (our own Fordforums chat area which is embedded into the site uning IRC as the protocol.
I perconally use mIRC which can be found at www.mirc.com
If anyone needs help setting this up then ICQ me and I'll provide help from there.
I can keep my IRC client (unix client - started in '92, and old habits are hard to kill...) connected to an IRC server almost 24/7, so I can vegetate in #fordforums to keep the channel open. Cos I'm currently overseas, I'll do this in two weeks when I get back.
Yeah agree with Doc, we gotta make things clear as to which server we use. We should use the default servers offered by icq, ie Aus.net or sothing. Also we gotta say what time in est we are all going to meet for the gander.
Went on last nite with no success, and no one was there IMO.
It's been yonks since i've used irc, ahhwhen i went to it yesterday the memories of people "idiots" trying to take over channels weirdo writing and the infamous scripts.
thats why i use icq not as technically orientated and gets to the point of chatting.
But yeah lay some foundations down for the irc meeting and i'll be in.
